New neighborhood brings large lots minutes from downtown Franklin
Renderings by Ben Johnson
As land to develop keeps getting harder and harder to come by, a new boutique neighborhood near downtown Franklin was announced by Carbine & Associates at the end of 2018, with construction to begin immediately. Home prices will begin in the $800,000s.
With 16 acres of green space bordered by Donelson Creek and the Harpeth River, Nature’s Landing will have 32 city homesteads surrounded by woods and water, said Daryl Walny, company vice president.
“For me, a homestead is a place where your family is wrapped by nature with enough land for privacy and a possible garden, while being moments from city conveniences, shopping and schools,” Walny said.
The neighborhood is zoned for nationally recognized schools. It will also aim to leave the area with more trees than before development began and will be heavily landscaped with River Birch, Bald Cypress, Black Gum, Redbud and Southern Magnolias.
“In many new neighborhoods, existing mature trees are scarce,” Walny said. “Carbine is planting over 400 additional trees. Nature’s Landing will be a natural oasis convenient to downtown Franklin.”
City homesteads will range from 1/3 of an acre to one acre, and renderings reflect styles that range from an English Country style home to charming modern farmhouses.
A number of the homesteads will have walkout basements. The neighborhood has community sidewalks and a footbridge connecting to the adjacent Moore Elementary recreational spaces. Homes under contract immediately will have the advantage of customizing exterior and interior finishes.
“We’re finding that home owners who want fresh architecture, modern amenities and convenience are loving this new neighborhood,” Walny said.
