Sponsored by the Home Builders Association of Middle Tennessee (HBAMT), this year’s event features five custom homes built by area builders. The homes range from Luna Custom Homes’ 6,400 square foot home of classic and timeless design featuring painted brick to Trace Construction’s 8,700 square foot home.
Of the five builders two (Legend Homes and Stonegate Homes) have participated in previous Parade of Homes, while Hatcliff Construction, Luna Custom Homes, and Trace Construction are putting the finishing touches on their first homes to be featured in a Parade of Homes.
Located in College Grove, just outside Nashville and only minutes from Franklin, Tennessee, The Grove is a 1,100-acre gated private club community.
In addition to Williamson County’s only Greg Norman Signature Golf Course, the community features a full-service spa, fitness facilities offering group classes, tennis, pickleball, trails, parks, equestrian, as well as world-class dining in the Clubhouse.
The Grove features luxury estate homes created from a rich, thoughtful palette of classic architectural styles, exquisite detailing, and signature elements. Set against the backdrop of rolling hills, woodlands, parks, and preserved open space, The Grove features custom homes ranging from the $900,000’s to over $3 million and custom homesites from $165,000 to over $400,000.
Hatcliff Construction’s home, “The Grassmere,” is a Southern Living Showcase Home and is a three-story reimagination of the historic Grassmere estate on the grounds of the Nashville Zoo. The team for the home includes Patrick and Mary Hatcliff of Hatcliff Construction with Ashley Gilbert Interior Design, Bear Hill Interiors, Becky Boyle Interiors, Betsey Mosby Interior Design, and Hannon Douglas Interior Design Studio.
Other Parade teams include: Doug Herman of Legend Homes and Marie-Joe Bouffard of JFY Designs; Jay Luna of Luna Custom Homes and Summer Ignagni of Let it Be Design Company; Paul Huff of Stonegate Homes and Julie McCoy of Julie McCoy Interiors, and Lindsay Butler of Trace Construction and Cara Brock.
Outdoor living spaces are receiving a great deal of emphasis from these builders and designers, echoing national patterns. A large outdoor kitchen with built in pizza oven, grill, beverage center, and Green Egg are featured as part of the Luna Custom Homes parade entry, and the covered porch features automatic shades to provide heat and bug resistance for year round use. The Stonegate home’s porch was designed for entertaining with a grilling area and space for living and dining. Highlights are a wood hood and granite countertop.
The expansive outdoor living space that is part of the Hatcliff home allows ample opportunity to take in the gorgeous views of Tennessee’s rolling hills.
Visitors will find the latest in building materials, lighting, kitchen design, flooring, wood beams and recycled materials, beautiful millwork, as well window treatments, unusual ceilings and wall treatments, and more.
