"Quiet & Neighborly Luxury"

The first time I had to visit a home in the Cedarmont Estates section of the Cedarmont Neighborhood, it was dark and the roads were winding and aside from feeling incredibly lost, I also felt certain that a spaceship could descend, kidnap me and make its escape without being seen by even one person. To me it seemed like the most random and remote possible place to build a neighborhood, but on a return trip - this time in the light of day - it began to make perfect sense. And it began to seem like a perfect place to live. The lots here are large, generally anything from 2 acres to 3.5, and the houses are proportionately likewise, starting around 4500 square feet and going up to 6000. It is common for homes to have pools or some other form of recreational outdoor acoutrement, but it is unique in that there are few fences, with the residents here feeling no need to shut one another out, given the size of their lots and the overall "this is a place for families" vibe. All of the houses are built with the finest ie stone floors, granite counters and the works, but unlike other parts of greater Nashville where places of this size on a similar piece of land and with similar fittings would easily cost upwards of $1M, here it will run you anywhere from $499K to $650K, depending on several obvious variants, such as size, lot and aforementioned add-ons like pools. The vibe here is incredibly friendly, with most people buying and staying long-term and with neighbors who wander in and out of each others' homes as if they were their own. The only drawback is that it is probably a bit remote for those who have to make a daily commute into Nashville for work, and is therefore better suited to those who work in Cool Springs, Franklin or Brentwood.
