A Realtor© wears many hats. At times I’m a general contractor, a cleaning lady, a taxi driver, a carpet cleaner, a home stager and a tour guide. When friends come to Middle Tennessee to visit, they often ask for recommendations on where they should go and what they should see. Of course, I give the obligatory answers: The Ryman, Printer’s Alley, Tootsies, but if friends want to go off the beaten path a bit, I always tell them to spend an evening at Arrington Vineyards. Arrington, TN is – simply put – one of the most beautiful communities in middle Tennessee. Several years ago, one of Nashville’s top music stars, Kix Brooks, purchased an absolutely sublime piece of property in Arrington, turned it into a working vineyard and opened it to the public. Today, it’s the site of romantic proposals, epic family reunions and sweet first dates. And the sunsets…don’t even get me started! Recently, a luxury home developer decided to capitalize on the beauty of Arrington and create an incredible new community in this beautiful landscape… Hideaway at Arrington was born!
While the 742 acres that makes up Hideaway at Arrington feels tucked away, it’s actually only about twenty minutes from uber-charming downtown Franklin. The I-65 and I-840 interchanges are equally close, offering a quick and easy commute to Nashville. But, the big draw for Arrington (other than the previously mentioned incredible landscape) is a world-class golf course professionally designed by Von Hagge Smelek and Baril.
Beyond the golf course, the neighborhood also includes walking, biking and hiking trails, a planned health club with fitness rooms, a spa, a yoga studio and massage rooms. And, after you’ve worked out, you can treat yourself to a sweet treat in the General Store & Coffee House located in the clubhouse or cool off in the pool that is slated for groundbreaking in 2016.
One of the coolest things about Hideaway at Arrington, from my perspective as a Realtor, is the varied choice that homeowners have when it comes to choosing a builder. Heritage Homes, Legend Homes, and Tennessee Valley Homes are just a few of the builders that are working at Hideaway and I can personally vouch for each of them. They’re all highly respected companies offering clients a wide array of services, design plans and guarantee a top notch experience. Each company brings a certain specialty to the table, so it’s worth your time to browse Hideaway’s website and do a little research before settling on the perfect builder. After all, if you build at Hideaway at Arrington, you’ve already chosen the perfect location!
Currently, there are approximately 100 home sites planned for this new community and they’re beautifully integrated into the golf course, situated to take advantage of the gorgeous vistas and planned to provide a sense of harmony with nature and connectedness to the community at large. And, while this is absolutely a luxury home community, I do believe that homeowners will have a large selection of home sizes, designs and architectural stylings. Luxury doesn’t have to mean 8,000 square feet… it means you are the master of your own home design!
