Westhaven, an upscale master-planned community located in lovely historic Franklin, Tennessee, is considered to be among Tennessee’s most desirable and exclusive residential addresses. It was developed by the Southern Land Company, a well-known and respected residential community development corporation, which also oversaw planning and construction of the highly regarded Laurelbrooke community, where multi-million dollar homes are the standard. Once it is completely built out, Westhaven will include over 1,500 acres of land and nearly 2,600 residential units. The community will also enjoy more than 500,000 square feet of commercial space, making Westhaven homes a perfect choice for independent business owners who wish to relocate their company to Franklin.
Located on Highway 96 only 2 miles from the historic center of Franklin, and only 16 miles from downtown Nashville, Westhaven offers an ideal location for commuters. But as the Westhaven community is planned with the daily needs of its residents in mind, buyers may find that they don’t need to go far to find everything they need. Plans for the Town Center commercial district include the Westhaven Realty Discovery Center, a Bank Building where a full-service branch of Regions Bank will operate, a Medical Offices building anchored by Vanderbilt University Medical Center, and a Harris Teeter supermarket. All buildings are scheduled to be completed by spring 2008.
Buyers considering Westhaven real estate will also find numerous service and retail businesses, many fine dining establishments, and various other industries scattered throughout Franklin. Many of the retail and restaurant establishments are located in Franklin’s quaint and charming historic district, only a short drive from Westhaven homes. Nashville, with all its big city sights and sounds, is only 20 minutes away – more than close enough to enjoy an exciting night out on the town.
Middle Tennessee is home not only to some of the state’s wealthiest communities, but also some of the best real estate investment opportunities in the nation. Franklin in particular is growing in popularity. Still, this wonderful community retains its small-town values, and truly takes care of its residents. Children of Westhaven residents attend Walnut Grove Elementary School, Grassland Middle School, and Franklin High School, all of which are part of Middle Tennessee’s highly rated public school systems.
Why Buy in Westhaven?
Westhaven offers buyers the world-class amenities of a resort, with all the comforts of a small town. Homes here are built to the highest standards, and offer the luxurious touches and custom features buyers dream about.
Homes in Westhaven start in the $300s, and can range into the millions of dollars. In addition to the lovely series homes on the market, there are still a few custom home sites available to those who want to build their dream home in Westhaven. Buyers can work with any of the community’s featured homebuilders to create a residence everyone will envy. For those seeking luxury on a smaller scale, town homes and condominiums in a variety of floor plans can be found throughout Town Center and Westhaven’s other attractive neighborhoods.
A feeling of community pervades Westhaven, and residents can often be found enjoying concerts on the lawn, sewing circles, flower planting classes, or family magic shows together. Activities for kids include toddler play groups, teen committees, art classes, cheerleading camp, family outdoor movies, and bike safety classes. Adults of all ages will love participating in gardening clubs, wine tasting, golf outings, monthly photography contests, the men’s breakfast club, ladies’ nights, and “coffee on the porch.” There truly is something for everyone here in Westhaven, and every resident is sure to become a welcomed and integral part of the community. New arrivals may enjoy “new neighbor night,” where new residents can introduce themselves and meet the people who will be sharing Westhaven with them.
One of Westhaven’s most attractive features is its 18-hole golf course, a challenging and visually arresting course designed by international golf architects Arthur Hills and Steve Forrest. The course is unique in its design and, unlike many of its counterparts in Middle Tennessee, fairways are not entirely bordered by homes; this allows for relaxing play free of distraction. Attached to the course will be a clubhouse featuring world-class dining and banquet facilities perfect for relaxing or entertaining guests, a pro shop, tennis courts, swimming pool, men’s and ladies’ locker rooms, and more.
Separate from the golf club at Westhaven is the Resident’s Club, where buyers will find some of the community’s most popular amenities. A game room, movement studio, fitness center, art center, movie theater, kids corner, teen room, playground, picnic area, and concert lawn all serve to provide recreational opportunities for Westhaven residents and their families while encouraging an interactive community dynamic.
Westhaven’s layout is also designed to evoke a feeling of community. The site is comprised of five neighborhoods, each approximately one-half mile in diameter. The center of each neighborhood – placed no more than a quarter mile or a 5-minute walk from every home site – is composed of a public green or other open space, surrounded by commercial and mixed-use buildings. The Town Center neighborhood is intended to serve as Westhaven’s commercial district, and follows almost exclusively the mixed-use format, while other neighborhoods “thin out” from their central squares to evoke a more suburban, semi-rural feeling. Throughout every neighborhood can be found greenways, fields, and parks shaped around the numerous natural streams which crisscross Westhaven’s site; these green spaces total 800 acres when combined, more than half of Westhaven’s total area. Water features and fishing ponds also add a natural, rural feeling. Bike and equestrian trails meander through every neighborhood, encouraging foot traffic and “pedestrian commuting.” Roads are designed to complement the natural topography, and whenever possible both regarding and the removal of mature trees have been avoided.
