People move to the suburbs in search of peace and quiet, a larger yard or the opportunity to buy a home that’s new. One of the hottest amenities is a location that offers a fast commute to downtown Nashville, TN, Cool Springs or other employment and entertainment centers.

That was one of the attractions for Adam Smith-Toomey, who recently became one of the first homeowners in the new Vista subdivision. The neighborhood, located in mostly rural Whites Creek on the north side of Davidson County, is minutes from downtown.

“I took into account how close it is and how up-and-coming the community is,” said Smith-Toomey, who is moving from a downtown apartment. His girlfriend, Nicole Fillmore, works downtown.

Smith-Toomey bought his 2,500-squre-foot house about a month ago and will move in as soon as construction is complete. It’s his first house.

“It seems like it’s the next neighborhood to take off. It’s beautiful,” he said of Whites Creek.

Vista, which is being developed by Ole South, will have about 300 homes when complete. Construction recently started on the first phase of 42 homes. Prices range from about $250,000 to $320,000.

“We haven’t had a formal grand opening and we’ve already sold 25 percent” of the first phase, said Ole South Vice president Trey Lewis. “We started sales because of customer demand.”

The neighborhood is located close to Briley Parkway and the Fontanel entertainment complex.

“You can be anywhere in Nashville, TN in 30 minutes or less. We are eight minutes from Top Golf,” the entertainment and event venue at 500 Cowan St., said Lewis.

Ole South has built a model home and has completed “inventory” homes that are available for sale.

Regent Homes is preparing to launch construction of up to 800 homes in the new Burkitt Ridge subdivision off Nolensville Road on the south side of Nashville, TN.

The community’s location will appeal people who commute in all directions, said Regent President David McGowan.

“We’re halfway between I-24 and I-65 and halfway between downtown Nashville, TN and I-840. Think about all the people employed in Brentwood, TN and Franklin, TN looking for a home under $300,000,” he said.

Construction is expected to begin next spring with prices ranging from the $180,000s for a condo, the $240,000s for a townhome, the $290,000s for a cottage and from $350,000 to $400,000 for a larger single-family home. The neighborhood will include housing for senior independent living.

Burkitt Ridge will be similar to nearby Lenox Village, one of the first large-scale mixed use neighborhoods in Nashville, TN.

“It’s a walkable community with easy access to commercial facilities like a dentist, a chiropractor, a neighborhood pub,” McGowan said of Burkitt Ridge.

In fast-growing Mt. Juliet on the east side of the region, The Jones Co. is launching Baird Farms, a subdivision of 350 homes. Prices are expected to start in the high $300,000s. Sales are expected to begin within 30 days.

Baird Farms is close to the popular Providence area, which includes Providence Marketplace and a number of neighborhoods. There is a limited amount of available land in the vicinity.

“This is not technically in the Providence HOA, but we are right off Providence Boulevard, and the homes will have access to the walking trails throughout Providence. Providence is a hot spot and this is the last chance to get a home in the Providence area,” said Jen Lucy, director of sales for The Jones Co.

Baird Farms will feature more than 20 floorplans, including designs offered in Nolensville, TN’s Whitney Park subdivision and Ladd Park in Franklin, TN. Home sizes will range from 2,100 to 3,698 square feet, said Lucy.

“Mt. Juliet has a great small-town feel with big-town shopping and amenities. The schools are very good and for the value you can’t beat that combination. The proximity to the airport and downtown are great. And to be honest, I-40 is the best there is in regards to traffic,” she said.
