Weekend Open Houses In Wonderful Williamson County
by TJ Anderson
There are a lot of reasons why new and longtime Middle Tennesseans are drawn to Williamson County, and Franklin specifically: the great schools, natural beauty, growing food scene (downtown Franklin in particular just keeps getting more exciting) and mix of historic and well-designed new architecture, for starters.
Our own Jen Bua calls Westhaven home, and you won’t find a more enthusiastic cheerleader of a resident, which tells you something about how Williamson County homebuyers tend to feel about their decision.
You’ll find a wide mix of properties on the market at a wide range of budgets any time of the year, and now is, of course, no exception. So I took a look at the Williamson homes welcoming buyers in for a look this weekend, and picked out a few of my favorites.
First, the bigger Open Houses picture:
And then, some Williamson wonderfulness, with Open Houses this weekend:
320 Liberty Pike, Apt 205
Franklin, TN 37064
Looking to be a stone’s throw from Historic Downtown Franklin but feel drawn toward modern, loft-style living? Here’s an incredible urban townhouse with a mix of industrial and organic design touches, from exposed ducts to warm wood and brick. It’s also right across from The Factory at Franklin, and a stroll from excellent events and restaurants. Open Saturday for an evening view, 9 to 11 p.m.
1215 Porter St.
Franklin, TN 37064
Talk to Jen Bua if you want some insight into why living in Westhaven is so great, particularly if you have a growing family. And take a look at this listing if you want some quick visual insight — beautiful design inside and out (including a fantastic open kitchen and two great porch spaces). Open 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday.
1324 Academy St.
Franklin, TN 37064
Nearly 3,200 square feet in Battle Ground Park, with pretty obvious storybook curb appeal from the jump. Open living with a bright and beautiful kitchen, cool exposed beams in the living space and an outdoor living area you’ll definitely want to click through to. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.
6621 Hastings Ln.
Franklin, TN 37069
Custom design in a Franklin golf course community. Two particular things I want to make sure and direct your eyes to with this home, which offers more than 4,000 square feet of living space in Temple Hills Reserve: the ceiling details in just about every room, and an outdoor living area — replete with incredible fireplace — that’s an entertainer’s dream. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.
For good measure: This featured listing isn’t open this weekend, but we’d be glad to show it to you (and we think you’ll be more than wowed by seeing it):
3621 Wareham Drive
Thompsons Station, TN 37179
Just a few of the big draws to this beautiful Thompsons Station home in Tollgate Village: so much space (5 beds, 3 full baths and 2 half baths over more than 4,300 square feet, with two masters), style (that open kitchen? the covered porch?) and … sound (the home is already wired for home audio). Once again: Wow.
