In Brentwood, Franklin, and even farther south in 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.
