Williamson County Real Estate: Taramore - Brentwood real estate

Taramore - Brentwood real estate

 In Brentwood, Franklin, and even farther south in taramore clubhouse Williamson county you get a chance to see beautiful historic Antebellum homes that managed to escape the Civil war, and the ravages of time. Now these homes are facing a new battle, neighborhood developers. Many of the homes are saved, but area surrounding the homes is cut down to 1 acre or less.

I know that the land is very valuable, but we need to protect the environment surrounding the home, as well as the home itself. Most of these homes are  surrounded by oak trees hundreds of years old that should be considered when the local officials decide to rezone these properties.

A good example of what can be done is the Taramore neighborhood in Brentwood.  Taramore's historic manor home, constructed around 1845, will be carefully restored and renovated to become the neighborhood club. All of the amenities (pool and Tennis courts), will be behind the home, allowing the developer to keep the oaks in the front of the home from being damaged.

Kudos to John Wieland Homes for taking car of one of our historic landmarks.

The rest of the neighborhood is just as attractive as the clubhouse, just with smaller lots. Most people know that John Wieland builds a very elegant home, so these are just more of the same. Prices for homes in Taramore range from $749,000 to $810,000 in price, and 4100 square feet  to 5075 square ft.

Good post Larry. It is good to see that the developers are finally starting to preserve old buildings and trees instead of just bulldozing everything down and starting all over....

You are right on the money here! Too often these historic homes might be saved but the gardens and/or trees fall victim to the development. Could you imagine how different an experience it would be to see the Biltmore Estate without the gardens?!? It is refreshing to see a responsible builder who is sensitive to both history, aesthetics, and function.
