Nashville Open Houses With New Construction For A New Year
by TJ Anderson
Let's take it as a good sign: Middle Tennessee woke up to clear and bright blue skies to welcome the new year.
This past year brought a lot of great experiences for me and my team — including helping a bunch of clients sell their homes, and find their dream homes. But we’re looking forward to everything 2016 will bring.
We have lots of news to share about homes hitting the market soon, but in the meantime, in the spirit of newness: Let’s focus this week’s Open Houses roundup on new construction.
First, the wider picture of what you can stop in and see this weekend:
And then, some fresh new construction you can check out on this first weekend of a fresh new year.
910 B Spain Avenue
Nashville, TN 37216
On the lower end of the budget for new construction in East Nashville, but still plenty of high quality, this home — just shy of 2,000 square feet, with 3 beds and 2 1/2 baths — boasts some attributes that really shine, especially the two-story living area with beautiful, shiplap-trimmed gas fireplace. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.
6205 A Pennsylvania Avenue
Nashville, TN 37209
The Nations is growing rapidly, but you can still get a lot of house for the money, compared to a lot of parts of Nashville that are located as conveniently. Good example: This 2200-plus-square-foot new construction, with a lot of attractive attributes, including high-end finishes, two covered porches and a fully fenced yard. For my part, I don’t see homes like this being available for the mid-300s in The Nations all that much longer. Open Sunday, 1 to 4 p.m.
919 Warren Street
Nashville, TN 37208
Big style in Hope Gardens, a stone’s throw from all the Germantown nightlife — the shiplap detail in the entryway, coffered ceiling in the living room and massive master shower (plus clawfoot tub) all bring something special. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.
1913 Kimbark Drive
Nashville, TN 37215
Partial to Green Hills and all the shopping/eating/doing nearby? This new home (and its sister next door) sits right by the famous Bluebird Cafe and has all the desired touchstones of new construction — open layout, a big and beautiful master — plus some really beautiful brick design on the exterior. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.
1605 Electric Avenue
Nashville, TN 37206
Hunting for high-high end in East Nashville? You won’t come across too many homes more luxuriously outfitted than this one in Shelby Hills. Nearly 3000 square feet of living space with wow factor at just about every turn, from the two-sided fireplace to eye-grabbing beams in the kitchen and classic Tudor-style charm. Open Saturday 2 to 4 p.m.
