Imagine helping the kids with their homework in your home planning center and then strolling to the new dog park or to the nearby community center with its Wi-Fi work café, conference room, resort-style pool, fitness facility and other amenities.
Or you could relax in a rocking chair on the porch of the community center, known as The Farmhouse.
Owners of new houses built by Pulte Homes in Hendersonville’s Durham Farms community won’t have to imagine. They will have all the amenities of Tennessee’s fastest-growing master-planned neighborhood just steps from their door.
Pulte, one of the country’s largest home builders, is making its debut in Durham Farms with homes ranging from more than 2,564 to about 3,200 square feet and large yards. Prices start in the $500,000s.
“With its amenity-rich focus, this is a community that has emerged as one of the most desirable in the Nashville region. As a builder that strongly places the needs of our homeowners as the top priority, being a part of this vibrant community makes perfect sense for us and we look forward to welcoming our first homeowners in the near future.” said Will Coles, division president for Pulte Homes in Nashville.
Pulte is offering four floor plans with three to five bedrooms and up to three-and-a-half baths. All of the designs include flex rooms, lofts and two-car garages. The three larger floor plans have either an owner’s suite or a bedroom suite on the first floor.
Every home has a Pulte Planning Center located off the kitchen designed to help families stay organized. It can be used as a family office, craft storage or a spot for the kids to do homework. Lots are 70 feet wide.
Pulte has 65 home sites in Durham Farms and expects to begin sales late this year. Construction of a model home is under way, and it is expected to open in February 2022, said Macey Kessler, Pulte’s manager of corporate communications.
Durham Farms is designed to encourage residents to have an active lifestyle. Amenities include a playground, nearly three miles of paved trails, open spaces, pocket parks and the Veterans Walk, a park created by residents to honor men and women who served in the armed forces.
The dog park is the newest place where residents can enjoy the outdoors and get together.
“We have seen such an overwhelmingly positive response from our residents who utilize the dog park. With so many ‘fur-babies’ in the neighborhood, dog programming is a must. We have our annual Bark in the Park, a giant play date for the dogs, and Barks and Brews, where we partner with the Sumner County Humane Society and local breweries,” said Louis Holstein, lifestyle director for Durham Farms.
Durham Farms will have 1,200 homes on 472 acres when complete. The community is designed to appeal to families looking for a larger home in a community with extensive amenities for adults and children as well as for downsizers.
The variety of housing style reflects that. Builders currently active in Durham Farms include Lennar, which builds single-family homes from the high $300,000s, and Grandview Custom Homes, which builds houses from the high $500,000s.
360 Communities will offer villas and luxury townhomes for lease. They will range from 1,352 to 1,779 square feet and have three or four bedrooms and two or three baths.
360 Communities is an affiliate of Freehold Communities, the developer of Durham Farms.
