Nashville luxury homes – luxury real estate in nashville tn electricity distribution costs

Summer kitchens and outdoor living have become increasingly popular as the appeal and ability to enjoy the temperate Tennessee climate becomes known to more and more of the new homeowners. The combination of a salt water pool, cabana, summer kitchen can quickly add up to $500,000 to the cost of a luxury home in Nashville. The standard of "must haves" is the media room. In some homes, a dedicated media room can cost anywhere from $50,000 to well over $500,000 This would rival some of the home theaters found in homes in LA and Hollywood.

Homes under $1,000,000 will probably combine functions of rooms but at the luxury home level rooms tend to be dedicated to certain activities. A fitness room with flooring, mirrors and TV’s can rival that of the local gym and have a steam room or sauna to complement and finish off the workout.

As with most homes the bathroom has become another frontier that continually keeps being pushed higher and higher when it comes to luxury living. The steam shower, under floor heating, marble tiles, imported hand blown glass tiles, antique furniture, a dedicated laundry room, travertine tile are all almost standard features in homes in the $2,000,000 range and above. Luxury Condos

Luxury condos are an emerging market in Nashville with penthouse suites in the 1212 development selling for $3 million. Luxury townhomes in Belle Meade have been developed with an entry level of just under $1 million. Gated Luxury Subdivisions

Hendersonville and Gallatin both have upscale executive, estate and luxury homes on the lake and golf courses which are becoming more and more popular as the infrastructure is completed. Fairvue Plantation is the only golf course community on the lake.

New retail developments continue to grow and in some cases rival Cool Springs to the south. Indian Lake in Hendersonville will cover about 400 acres and has brought a new appeal to the Sumner County area in addition to the attraction of Old Hickory Lake. The upscale retail outlets have a direct correlation to the number of luxury homes in the immediate area because without the disposable income of the luxury home residents these upscale stores could not survive. Nashville Luxury and Estate Homes

The estate homes tend to be on larger lots and usually start around the one-acre mark. LaurelBrooke features some new additions built by established luxury home builders like Mike Ford. Mike built a $4.9 estate home complete with saltwater pool. This is a home that truly has to be seen to be fully appreciated. Older Neighborhoods Revitalized

Some of the older well-established neighborhoods in areas such as Belle Meade, Forest Hills, and Green Hills have homes that are comparable to any luxury home throughout the United States although a $7 million dollar home in Nashville will be more house than a comparatively priced home in say Los Angeles California.

West Meade and the streets around Jocelyn Hollow is an emerging source of estate and luxury homes and have taken advantage of the older larger lots that can be combined to situate a $2-3 million dollar home that are being built to the highest standards. Brentwood and Franklin Luxury Estate Homes

LaurelBrooke in Franklin is a perfect example of a gated community and has recently seen sales of homes costing around seven million dollars. The Governors Club in Brentwood has some of the finest examples of custom home building by builders such as Aspen Homes as well as some of the bigger luxury home builders such as John Weiland Homes.

Franklin and Brentwood are popular areas for the purest form of the estate home historically and is represented by the equestrian properties and horse farms that to be found here. Leipers Fork is probably the center of the equestrian home market with developments like Beechwood Plantation providing estate lots in an equestrian community with homes starting in the $2M range and up.

Lake lots in Gallatin in the Fairvue development are just about sold out but there is a new development on the lake in Hendersonville called Foxlands that will attempt to meet the desire for luxury lake homes in a world class golf community.

The increase in demand for luxury homes in Nashville, Brentwood, Hendersonville and Franklin has also seen the fortunes of the smaller independent luxury home builder on the rise. Builders have even relocated here from traditional luxury home markets such as California.

As the demand for upscale luxury homes close to downtown Nashville in areas like West End, Belmont, Green Hills increases it has meant that homes that were built in the 50’s and 60’s are now becoming sought after for their oversized lots and fantastic location.

If you drive through some of the older neighborhoods such as Cherokee Park you can now see total renovations of homes that are being reproduced in places like Westhaven in Franklin but in the original community setting that is becoming so appealing to the modern buyer who doesn’t demand a 2 acre yard and is happy to see the garage and "guts" of the home at the back of the lot. These back alleys also enable private parking and keep the front elevation of these luxury homes intact.

if you are considering visiting the Nashville area and would like to stay in hotel that reflects the level of attention to detail and quality that you have become accustomed to Gary Ashton can personally recommend the Hermitage Hotel. Gary does not benefit in anyway from this recommendation but does believe his clients will be extremely happy here and hopefully, will get to join them for a meal in his favorite restaurant the Capitol Grille.
