Ole South’s Newest Community
by Jason Zasky
Ole South Properties has been building homes in Spring Hill for more than 20 years, with its latest master-planned community being Brandon Woods, a new collection of low-maintenance townhouses and traditional three-, four- and five-bedroom homes.
“The first section of 61 townhomes—the Villas at Brandon Woods—is already occupied,” says Trey Lewis, Vice President of Sales for Ole South. “The second phase—with 62 traditional homes, all of which are four sides brick and range in size from 1,300 to 2,700 square feet—is already under construction, with over 30 sold and a waiting list for future starts. Meanwhile, the next section of 108 home sites is under development and will be available for new home construction later this year.”
When completed, Brandon Woods will contain over 750 homes, with a neighborhood pool, playground, and many other amenities, a perfect complement to existing Ole South neighborhoods in Spring Hill, which include Ridgeport, Chapmans Crossing, Benevento East, Deerfield, Meadowbrook, and the Villas at Woodland Trace, among others.
It’s all part of the company’s longtime commitment to Middle Tennessee, founded by Murfreesboro native John Floyd in 1986.
“We are a Murfreesboro-based company, and we are very involved in the local community,” emphasizes Lewis. “When you buy a home from Ole South, the company re-invests in Middle Tennessee.”
In the past year or so, the company has donated more than a million dollars to 13 area non-profits who support the less fortunate and those affected by the pandemic, a list that includes: the Rutherford County Area Habitat for Humanity; the American Red Cross Heart of Tennessee; the Box 55 Association and Boys & Girls Club of Rutherford County, plus Nashville General Hospital Foundation and the Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee.
Beyond the quality and curb appeal of Ole South’s homes, Spring Hill does plenty to sell itself to everyone from first-time homebuyers to those relocating for work, not to mention those empty-nesters who want to be closer to their grandchildren.
“Spring Hill is not a stepping stone; it’s a destination,” reminds Lewis, noting that the area remains more affordable than Davidson County and most of Williamson County.
“While Spring Hill has grown exponentially over the last 20 years, it hasn’t lost any of its small-town charm and feel,” emphasizes Lewis. “And because of its proximity to Nashville, you can enjoy everything the city has to offer without having to live in Nashville.”
As one might expect, Ole South homes are designed to be energy efficient (in voluntary compliance with Tennessee Valley Authority’s Energy Right® program guidelines), and outdoor living options are available for many new home plans.
Ole South can also help with financing, offering “a program with First Community Mortgage where buyers typically only pay two-thousand dollars in total closing costs,” suggests Lewis.
And as Ole South looks toward building out other new properties in Middle Tennessee—adding to existing developments in the likes of Murfreesboro, Smyrna, Fairview, Pleasant View, and Shelbyville—“we are going to continue to offer Tennesseans the very best value possible in new home construction in whatever locations we offer,” says Lewis, noting that Ole South is proud to be recognized as one of the Top 100 Home Builders in the nation.
“Whether you need a ranch, two-story with a bonus room, or a townhome, Ole South has a floorplan to meet your needs,” he concludes.
