There are SO many great neighborhoods in Franklin and Williamson County. It’s hard to pick just a few, but since I’ve actually lived in Founders Pointe and have sold many homes there, it seems logical that this would be one I’d write about. It is also a favorite of mine in this price range.
The Neighborhood – Founders Pointe is a popular Franklin neighborhood of 351 homes. This community was developed and built by Zaring Homes (now Drees) starting in the mid-1990s. The homes range from approximately 1800 – 3600 sq. ft. Residents find the convenient location and great amenities hard to beat. The price point is reasonable – at low $300s – high $400s. That’s why homes in this neighborhood don’t stay on the market long! The amenities include a community pool/cabana and playground. The neighborhood organizes lots of activities for residents, including play groups, Easter Egg Hunts/Parades, other holiday festivities, and fun summer events.
Schools – Founders Pointe is zoned for Williamson County Schools AND Franklin Special School District….a little confusing but great schools! A portion of the homes in Founders Pointe are zoned for FSSD elementary and middle schools – Johnson/Popular Grove Elementary and Freedom/Poplar Grove Middle School. The other homes are zone for Williamson County – Walnut Grove Elementary and Grassland Middle Schools. All students in Founders Pointe are zoned for Franklin High. You’ll find that these schools are some of the best in the state! You can find more info on Williamson County Schools HERE and Franklin Special Schools HERE.
Surrounding Area -Founders Pointe is only minutes from downtown Franklin – voted the 8th best town in the nation by Travel & Leisure Magazine. Downtown Franklin, Tennessee is a vibrant blend of historic preservation and modern sophistication. Just 14 miles from Nashville, you’ll find an oasis of Southern hospitality housed in a 16-block National Register district of award-winning antique shops, brick-and-mortar gift and book stores, fashion-forward boutiques, privately owned art galleries, lovingly restored homes and more. It’s also a stones throw away from Jim Warren Park and the Williamson County Soccer fields. Convenience….Reid Hills Commons is just across Hwy 96 where you can walk to Walgreen’s or pick up your pizza at Nick & Willy’s. A new walking path along Hwy 96 is part of the city’s ongoing improvements and is under construction as I write this. For more information on Franklin, click here.
Traffic….yes there is! In a city growing like Franklin, you can expect that the traffic can be troublesome at peak hours. But, there are many options for commuting, and face it….everyone loves Williamson County, so we just have to live with it!
