Even real estate novices know the expression “location, location, location.” While overused, to be sure, it’s entirely accurate. No matter how fantastic a layout or design plan is, the location of a home will largely determine its popularity. Today’s spotlight home – 697 Legends Crest Trail – has an absolutely perfect location AND is beautifully designed and loaded with upgrades and add-ons. It’s a trifecta of awesomeness and deserves its moment in the blogging spotlight! This 6,500 square foot beauty is located in Legends Ridge, one of Franklin’s loveliest neighborhoods. The hilly acreage was once planned as a golf course community, but after the housing recession was re-envisioned as an exclusive community with upscale housing and amenities. Now fully developed, the neighborhood offers gorgeous homesites with mature plantings and outstanding views! Legends Ridge is also located smack dab in the middle of Franklin and Brentwood. It’s three miles to Franklin’s Main Street, 10 minutes from Maryland Farms, 10 minutes from the I-65 interchange and right in the center of its three zoned schools, Walnut Grove Elementary, Grassland Middle School and Franklin High. It’s got that highly coveted location that ensures fantastic resale potential.
The home itself includes three levels of luxurious (yet super comfortable) living. The main level features a bright and sunny open floor plan with an impressive staircase and balconies open to the foyer expansive family room and gourmet kitchen. A private study and formal dining room flanks the center-hall foyer while a main level master suite includes a fireplace, sitting area and spa-like master bath. A breakfast room/den located just off the kitchen features exposed brick walls, a vaulted ceiling and access to the backyard deck and side-yard patio. This home takes advantage of its gorgeous surroundings and maximizes the outdoor living spaces including patios, porches and second story balconies to grand effect!
Upstairs, four additional bedrooms showcase attached bathrooms, crown molding, ceiling fans and high-end millwork in the form of tray ceilings, built-in window seats and more! One of the bedrooms opens to a sweet Juliet balcony while two others open to the second story terrace that overlooks the backyard. An expansive bonus room/theatre room also located on the home’s upper level creates limitless possibilities for entertaining, though the finished walk-out basement is where the real parties will happen! In that pretty, light-filled basement, you’ll find a huge living room, billiards and gaming area, and a full-sized kitchen already outfitted with sink, cabinetry and refrigerator. Opposite the billiards room, there’s another bedroom and bath, a separate office or craft room and a semi-finished exercise studio. The basement living room opens to a lower level screened-in patio and beautiful backyard that has been landscaped to perfection.
As the leaves begin to turn in Williamson County, this home will be shown in its very best light. Give me a call to schedule your private tour of this gorgeous Antebellum-inspired home in one of Franklin’s favorite – and best located – executive communities!
