Many new buyers are learning about a loft enclave in Germantown that is unlike most in Nashville. Some say Werthan Lofts could be right at home in New York or Chicago! It's part of the appeal for over 200 residents in this converted factory that still looks like an industrial complex as you drive by on Rosa Parks Blvd.
For the past 2 years, throughout a real estate slump, sales in Werthan have remained strong - perhaps as a result of the architectural originality OR the affordability OR the convenient, walkable neighborhood OR the spectacular pool and outdoor areas throughout the gated community OR the rare opportunity for expansion space in condo living (Werthan is one of only a handful of condos where owners of certain units can expand into basement space, upward, or by adding lofted mezzanines in the interior spaces). Whatever the reasons, Werthan lofts have closed 111 sales since June of 2007. With Phase 4 construction complete and the development down to 12 units on the market; there is still something for everyone.
Prices range from $184,000 - $475,000. Sizes range from 743 square feet to almost 2600 square feet. Here are some highlights of two available units:
Unit 112 is one of the largest spaces in the community. At $429,545 this 2576 square foot unit is one of the smallest prices per square foot. And those numbers don't take into account the most spectacular part of this space - the huge covered deck that was once a factory loading dock. The current residents spend as much time in the outdoor areas as they do inside!
Both bedrooms in the space have a private full bath. The master retreat also features a sitting room that's almost the same size as the living room and two large closets - a hot commodity in any loft.
There's a third full bath off the open living, dining and kitchen area. The entire main level is built for entertaining with large wall spaces for a gallery of art, extra cabinets and storage, room for a bar and so much more.
For the more frugal buyer, there's another Werthan gem on the upper level of phase 3. At 1330 square feet, unit 317 is a real surprise for $292,545. It, too has an outdoor space - a balcony overlooking the Hydrangea garden of the East Courtyard. The master suite here is a mix of modern - with a wall of industrial windows and vaulted ceilings that allow enough space for a mezzanine expansion. The open living room has those bricks and beams the old factory is known for - so does the second bedroom (currently used as a media room).
So, whether you're looking for large or small spaces - modern or filled with restored factory charm - Werthan Lofts really does have something for everyone! Call the bozTEAM of Village Real Estate to get your piece of history today.
