Model Home Spotlight- Old Hickory Commons

Categories: Nashville Area Information, Nashville New Homes, New Homes For Growing Families, New Homes for the First-Time Buyer, New Homes for those downsizing, Ole South Neighborhoods | Posted: April 28, 2015


Nestled in the outskirts of downtown Nashville, our Old Hickory Commons community has the best mix of suburban flair and city life. From granite kitchen counters to electric range and refrigerator upgrades, these town homes are the perfect spot to call home. Turn-of-the-century styling in the craftsman tradition    is what makes Old Hickory Commons a unique, desirable place to call home.

Here are a few reasons why you should take a look at settling down here:


Starting at $119,900, our two bedroom homes integrate style with convenience. With the growing nature of the Nashville market, you may find it difficult to find a better price with the influx of people moving into town. Why rent when you can own for less?


While living in the downtown area is great, it is unreasonable for most. With easy access to I-24, the International Airport and surrounding areas such as Brentwood, Murfreesboro and Smyrna, Old Hickory Commons has the most convenient location to meet all your needs. Go on a shopping trip at the nearby Marketplace at Providence or take out your fishing poles and head to Percy Priest Lake. You won’t find a more perfect location to access everything that Nashville has to offer.


What’s the most important thing when buying a new home? Well…the home itself of course. Here are just a few of the features available in our properties.

  • Hardwood Entry
  • Stain resistant carpeting
  • Vaulted or trey ceilings per plan
  • 6-panel fiberglass front door
  • Custom cabinetry
  • Laminate countertops
  • Appliance package, including electric range, dishwasher, refrigerator with ice maker, and built-in microwave
  • Engineered roof truss system
  • 5 – year limited warranty

As Nashville and surrounding areas in Middle Tennessee continue to gain in worldwide popularity, more and more families are making Middle Tennessee their new home!

Nashville is now ranked among the Top 25 Housing markets in the country, as recently published by The Nashville Business Journal. CLICK HERE for the story.


As Nashville and Middle Tennessee gains recognition, Ole South continues to lead the way on many lists as well!

Our Puckett Station neighborhood in Murfreesboro, was just named one of the Top Ten Residential Developments, according to The Nashville Business Journal, in its September 9th publication.


As of the end of August, Ole South continues to lead the way among all Middle Tennessee home builders in number of closed new home sales by a wide margin.

Ole South has closed more First-Time Home Buyer loans through THDA than any other builder in the state.  We continue to make the dream of home ownership a reality!

Every year since 2003, Ole South has been recognized by Builder Magazine among the Top 100 US Builders and are proud to be the only independent builder in the state to receive this recognition this year.


Locally Owned

But the most important rating of all is those given by the families that purchase our new homes.  This is the most coveted accomplishment yet, a personal recommendation:


Satisfied home buyers is what Ole South is all about.  We invite you to visit our neighborhoods throughout Middle Tennessee and see first-hand why:








The Ole South Blog: Building Futures!

Categories: Local Education, Nashville Area Information, Ole South Neighborhoods | Posted: May 30, 2013

Ole South partnered with Cane Ridge High School when it first opened its doors and is very proud of how the school has grown into a model that is recognized nationwide.

Just this month, NCAC accredited the Cane Ridge High School Academy of Architecture and Construction as a Model Academy!  Ole South has been active on the Advisory Board of Cane Ridge’s Academy of Architecture and Construction and is honored to serve with many other business partners that made this accreditation possible.

The Career Academy concept is new to Nashville and is being recognized all over the country.  In this system, a student chooses a career path to follow.  Along this pathway, numerous courses are taught that are also valid as college credits when the student moves forward in their studies.

Each Spring, the freshman academy tours an Ole South job site, where they can see all of the trades and skills used in residential building.  They view homes in every stage of construction and identify the many employment opportunities available with the many different components and services used as well.



On this particular jobsite, the students met a former program graduate, Mario, who is employed as a lead electrician.  It was great for the students to see the prgram working first hand!


Another great part of the Academy of Architecture and Construction, is the ACE Mentor Program, which is the program in the nation where ACE is an actual class offered during school.  Students can join this group and participate in many construction and design projects, along with job shadow experiences.

One of the many projects this year was to design and build a storage building for a customer.  The students competed against each other in design, and then built the building with the assistance of business mentors.  Many materials were donated and the proceeds from the sale of this building will go back to the school to fund future projects.



Construction to complete this shed project is still ongoing at present.  This project provided the students and mentors a great experience working together.  Ole South is proud to participate and looks forward to our continued involvement with education in our communities.

The Ole South Blog: “Food, Fun, and New Model Homes”

Categories: Nashville Area Information, Spring Hill Area Information | Posted: February 24, 2012

For a while now, you’ve heard about our new offerings in Spring Hill.  Although we’re not quite ready for Grand Opening Celebrations in the new model homes, yesterday was a great day for a “sneak peek” of our progress with Realtors from Re/Max Elite.

We started the afternoon with a bus ride to Spring Hill from the Re/Max Elite offices in Brentwood.  Those that had not heard “Red Solo Cup” now know the words!

Our first stop was to visit with Brandon Wise at our Meadowbrook location, where everyone enjoyed appetizers and a salad.  During this stop, everyone learned about the many offerings in Meadowbrook… town homes starting at 115,000, traditional homes starting at $140,000 and a new series of 2500+ sf homes starting in the 180s!

From Meadowbrook, we proceded to visit with Sandy Prince at our new Benevento East Model Home, where the main course of sandwiches, wraps, and chicken would be waiting. 

 Everyone learned about the incredible values being offered in Benevento East, with ALL BRICK homes starting in the 220’s.  You can even purchase a 3200+ 5 bedroom, 3.5 Bath home just like the model for $349,990!  Popular features include a variety of outdoor living options, to include exterior fireplaces and outdoor kitchens.  Three-car garage plans are also available on these 1/3 acre homesites.

Just a minute about the FOOD!  Todd Ryan, who handles offsite catering for Chick-Fil-A, put together the fantastic selection we had…and even set it all up!  From the fresh fruit and salads, to the chicken bites, sandwiches and wraps…Todd did it all… even the delicious dessert selections!  Give Todd a call about organizing your next event at 615.430.5753.  You will be glad you did! 

Now back to the caravan…

Our next stop was to our new model home at The Arbors at Autumn Ridge, which is located off of Wilkes Road near Campbell Station.  To find it, just turn west at the concrete silo across from McDonalds!

Annette Spicer graciously presented the model home, complete with 5 bedrooms, formal dining, bonus room, and outdoor living area (which will also include a complete outdoor kitchen) at $354,990.  The dessert selection included awesome brownies and cheescake, with a variety of toppings.  ALL BRICK Williamson County homes are available in this neighborhood from the 220’s to upper 300’s!

After viewing the different inventory homes under construction, it was time for the moment everyone had been waiting for…the $500 gift card drawing.  Congratulations to Veronica Daniel!

We wish to thank the team at Re/Max Elite for taking time from their busy schedules to spend the day with us!  Special thanks to Andy Brown, Broker of Re/Max Elite, for coordinating this event.


We are very proud of our new home neighborhoods all over Middle Tennessee and will soon be opening two locations in Sumner County.   If you are interested in taking a group tour of Ole South neighborhoods in any of our areas of Middle Tennessee, please let us know!  They make more “Red Solo Cups” every day!





The Ole South Blog: “Good night John Boy.”

Categories: Nashville Area Information, New Homes For Growing Families | Posted: February 3, 2012

Do you remember the TV series, “The Waltons” from back in the 70’s?

For those that don’t remember, or weren’t born yet, the series was about a family living in Virginia during the period 1933 – 1946.   Living in the family home were three generations of the Walton family.  At one point, a fourth generation appeared also!   CLICK HERE if you want the full run down on the show and its cast.

History does have a way of repeating itself and we have noticed an increasing demand for homes that can accomodate multiple generations.  The scientists call this type of home “multi-generational.”  We at Ole South just call it accomodating larger families!

Today, Ole South offers a wide variety of “multi-generational” floor plans in our many Middle Tennessee new home neighborhoods.  You will find them in Nashville, Murfreesboro, Spring Hill, Smyrna, Clarksville, and soon opening in Gallatin.  A wide range of sizes and pricing is available too!

We have one such home available right now in Nashville’s Rivendell Woods of Cane Ridge.   This 2-story home features a rocking chair front porch and another covered porch with additional patio at the rear of the home, which can also be converted to the perfect sun room!  Inside are soaring ceilings in the great room, which flows into the spacious kitchen and dining area.

Tucked nicely down the main level hallway from the Great Room is a 4th bedroom and a third full bath, perfect for an in-law or teen suite!  On the upper level is the Owner’s Suite & Bath, complete with seperate soaking tub and walk-in shower.  Down the hallway are two additional bedrooms with anoth full bath in between.  Take a look at the floor plan:

This particular home is move-in ready and priced at $169,990, which will include ALL kitchen appliances.  And by using First Community Mortgage for your financing needs, Ole South will even pay ALL of your closing costs!   For more information on this home, give us a call in Rivendell Woods of Cane Ridge, 615.731.1968.   If you would like to explore financing options, please call Chris Meagher @ 615.504.5976.
