Construction of the new Nolen Mill development, a Goodall Homes product located in Nolensville, is well underway, offering diverse designs for single-family homes and attached cottages for senior citizens.
Representatives from the Williamson Inc. chamber and Goodall Homes gathered Thursday to celebrate a ribbon-cutting ceremony at a newly finished home on site.
Nolensville Mayor Jimmy Alexander, Town Administrator Ken McLawhon and Nolensville Police Chief Roddy Parker attended the event.
Nancy Conway, Williamson Inc. senior vice president, Community Relations, told the crowd about the significant economic impact Goodall Homes has made in Williamson County, including Nolensville.
“This is a very important occasion,” Conway said.
“I can’t tell you the impact Goodall Homes has had on the greater Nolensville community in the range of homes, not only the square footage and design, but the pricing is unreal.
“Your economic impact to Nolensville and Williamson County has been significant. From big yards for single-family homes to one-story units for seniors, which are very popular, this development will serve the community.”
The subdivision offers two different sections, one portion consisting of single-family homes in Nolen Mill, and another portion, The Cottages at Nolen Mill, offering single-story cottage living in attached units for senior citizens age 55 and over.
The price for single-family homes ranges from $412,000 to $581,325, offering 1,941 to 3,806 sq. ft., while cottages start in the low $300,000’s.
Six different exterior home designs with a mix of stone, brick and wood materials, as well as six different floor plans, are offered throughout the development.
Carey Buckley, new home consultant, said that historic Nolensville attracts buyers because of its charming, small town feel where everyone knows their neighbors.
“You can go to Subway and know the person behind the counter,” she said.
Buckley said the school system, especially, is a draw for families. Nolen Mill resides in the Williamson County School district and is zoned for Nolensville Elementary, Mill Creek Middle and Nolensville High schools.
“This is a proud day for Nolensville to add to our inventory and to accommodate all the new people moving here,” Alexander said.
“It is a tremendous occasion. What a great product.”
Alexander shared that in the past eight years, the population has almost doubled in Nolensville. In 2010, Nolensville had a population of 5,800 people, while today, the population has reached over 11,000 people.
“There are many reasons people are coming here,” he said.
“It’s a great community. It’s a safe community. There’s proximity to everything. It’s just a wonderful place to be.”
Representatives of Goodall Homes called Nolensville “a thriving community … close to so much that makes Nolensville special — the historic district, recreation complex, and local events like the Buttercup Festival and Veterans Day Parade.”
All single-family homes sit on half-acre lots, which include side entry garages, granite countertops, decorator tile backsplash, high-quality flooring and fixtures and are energy-efficient.
The development is projected for completion in two years.
Goodall Homes has been building new homes, townhomes, condominiums, courtyard cottages, and villas in the greater Nashville area since 1983.
