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

The Ole South Blog: “When a Plan Comes Together”

Categories: Nashville New Homes, New Homes For Growing Families, New Homes for the First-Time Buyer, New Homes for those downsizing, Ole South Neighborhoods | Posted: June 23, 2012

Everyone at Ole South always looks ahead to find ways that we can make our award winning portfolio of home plans even better.  You could say that we’re always in pursuit of building the perfect home.

In our Rivendell Woods of Cane Ridge neighborhood, there is a section of great home sites that back up to wooded areas on both sides of the street.  

Sounds like the perfect setting for your new home, doesn’t it?

The grade of these pristine homesites offered many challenges, and we set out to design the perfect plan to take full advantage of the obstacles that nature had thrown at us.  The result…. a brand new, exciting house plan that is perfect not only for “multi-generational” families, but everyone else too! 

It is now COMPLETE and will welcome it’s new owners next week.

The home features three levels of living areas. 

Enter through the garage level and you will find a large mud room, utility room, and large walk-in storage closet, perfect for hiding from severe storms.  On that same level is a seperate living area with a full bath and private entry from the rear yard.  Use it for a teen or in-law suite.  Use it as a bonus room.  But, you WILL use it!

Just a few steps up into the main living area you will find the open kitchen and great room, featuring soaring ceilings – 12 ft actually!

Take a few more steps to the upper level.  There you will find a huge Owner’s Suite and Glamour Bath, complete with individual vanities, oval soaking tub, and seperate walk-in shower.  Down the opposite hallway, you will find two secondary bedrooms and another full bath.  YEP, a total of three full baths in this home!

We are offering several elevations of this unique floorplan, all of which will have tree-lined back yards, and tiered entertaining decks/patios.  Here, take a look:


Best of all, Rivendell Woods of Cane Ridge is just minutes away from everything Nashville, Brentwood, and Franklin has to offer.   Call 615.731.1968 today to find out just how affordable your brand new home can be.  Don’t forget, ZERO DOWN financing options are available for qualified first-time buyers and Veterans!

New Homes in Smyrna, TN – “a sneak peek” at our new Model Home in Belmont

Categories: New Homes For Growing Families, New Homes for the First-Time Buyer, New Homes for those downsizing, Ole South Neighborhoods, Smyrna Area Information | Posted: May 30, 2012

In relentless pursuit of the “perfect house,”  Ole South reveals another exciting new home floor plan.  We liked it so much that we built one for our new model home in Smyrna’s Belmont neighborhood.

How do we keep making the best plans even better?  Simple.  by listening to our home buyers and the trends they develop.

Many are asking for a more open kitchen, and they really love islands.. and they love a functioning island even more.  Here you go!

And everyone likes a large Owner’s Suite on the main level:

We also have heard from many families that want large secondary bedrooms as well.  There are two exceptionally large secondary bedrooms upstairs.  Take a look:

Also, everyone likes Bonus Rooms and the bigger they are the better they like it.  This is a bonus room you will LOVE!

Back downstairs on the main level, you will love the 9′ ceilings.  A real wood-burning fireplace option too?  Absolutely!

This particular new home plan is 2185 sf of living area.  We can also extend the garage for added storage, even a 3-car side entry garage on certain home sites!

This exciting plan can be built in most all of our Middle Tennessee neighborhoods in a variety of exterior elevations…. at a price you will not believe!

For a “sneak peek” at the new Belmont model home in Smyrna, give Adam Hall a ring at 615.220.9120.  It is real easy to find.  I-24 East, Exit 70 Almaville Road, South 1 mile to Belmont on the right.

And for those that are asking for more bedrooms, we are still listening!  There is a 4-bedroom version of this same plan in the works right now.

Remember, interest rates are lower than they have ever been.  Why not visit an Ole South new home neighborhood today?

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.

Better yet, come out and see it for yourself!   Find out why we say…..
