franklin tn: Carriage Park Townhouses - Franklin TN - Community Market Report - 02/28/10 12:53 PM
Carriage Park Townhouses in Franklin TN Carriage Park is a great condo community in Franklin TN. The 102 Victorian style units are two to a building. It is an overused expression, but this little community is Franklin Tennessee's best kept secret. Unlike most condo/townhouse communities, Carriage Park townhouses have larger yards than are in most single family neighborhoods. The only difference is the HOA association does all the yard work. Among the amenities are pool and tennis courts, with lights for evening play. The community is great for walking and just a mile from downtown Franklin TN. It is located off Mack Hatcher and adjacent to Polk Place. The HOA fees (2 comments)

franklin tn: Franklin TN Neighborhoods, Falcon Creek and Fieldstone Farms - 01/17/10 11:42 PM
Two great Franklin TN neighborhoods for people looking for 3 to 4 bedrooms from 1200 to 2400 square feet. Falcon Creek is largely a 3 or 4 bedroom community with most of its homes under 2400 square feet. Fieldstone Farms has a wider range and varied offering from town homes, to zero lot lines and sections that offer homes up to 4500 feet. But for comparison purposes to Falcon Creek the chart below represents similarly sized homes in Fieldstone Farms. Homes larger than 2300 square feet were not included in the chart.

franklin tn: Ready for Winter to Pass in Franklin - 01/10/10 11:20 AM
Winter in Franklin TN doesn't last long, but being an original snow-belter (upstate New York) I have come to appreciate the brief mild winters in the Nashville area. This week we will have most of the harshness of old man winter pass and soon it will be Spring and Downtown Franklin will have its annual Spring Festival. But the weather doesn't stop the Franklin folks from having fun and festivals. Pictured below is a costumed resident from the October Pumpkin Fest. Franklin also has a Dickens of a Christmas to help pass the colder months.

We don't get much snow here in Franklin TN, but still the Christmas lights sparkle in our quaint downtown square. This night Franklin was set-up for their annual Dickens of a Christmas festival. I couldn't resist sneaking down there in the evening and snapping a few photos of the wonderful lights.
franklin tn: I Got Your Back - Speechless Sunday in Franklin TN - 12/13/09 04:44 PM
This dog has the best seat on the wagon. Wagon rides all day for the kids and families this weekend at the Dickens of a Christmas festival in Downtown Franklin TN. The misty day did little to dampen the spirit of the festival goers, but that is not unusual, this is one of the area favorites.
franklin tn: Franklin TN - Dickens of a Christmas - 12/13/09 03:59 PM
This weekend in Franklin TN was the Dickens of a Christmas festival. Food, music, crafts, vendors, people dressed in 19th century London garb and even sugar plums graced Franklin's downtown. One craft vendor told us than Franklin Festivals are her favorites of all. No other gets her into the spirit of the Christmas season as much as Franklin TN's Dickens of a Christmas. Below a musician plays carols on the stemware.

The battle took place in 1864 and in the short span of 5 hours there were more lives lost than the two days of fighting at Shiloh. In all (4 comments)
franklin tn: Fieldstone Farms Franklin TN Homes fro Sale - 10/28/09 09:02 PM
Fieldstone Farms, Franklin TN, A Great Neighborhood! When I say Fieldstone Farms is family friendly, it is because that's where I raised my family. My kids grew up there where they made quality friends and are proudly Franklin TN, Williamson County public school products, and college grads too. When I moved from upstate NY to Tennessee, existing homes or as my Realtor called them "pre-loved homes" were hard to come by. My kids were used to an urban neighborhood and I thought that an established neighborhood would make the move easiest for them. I took a chance, on one of the (0 comments)

franklin tn: Nashville TN, Home Inspection - Part l - 08/14/09 02:06 PM
It isn't Over with the Inspection in this Nashville Home So, you listened to your Realtor and had the house inspected before you bought. Your agent even added a stipulation that they show proof of recent routine maintenance proving a clean bill of health for the HVAC unit(s). It all looks great, until 2 weeks later and into the hottest month of the year the unit is blowing only hot air. No problem, we have a First Year Home Protection Plan. But wait, the repair person they sent over look at the unit and notice years of dust around the coils. (1 comments)
