Goodall Homes is building a new active adult community in Nashville, TN.

South Nashville is getting a new 125-home active adult community called Williams Mill. Homebuilder Goodall Homes purchased the 38 acres of land last month for $2.5 million. The future 55+ development will be located on the corner of Nolensville Pike and Holt Road with construction expected to begin in early 2018.

Williams Mill, which is estimated to cost about $30 million at build-out, will feature courtyard cottages and five-to-ten townhomes priced from the mid to high $200s. Homes in this age-restricted neighborhood will appeal to empty nesters, retirees, and active adults thanks to the builder’s innovative floor plans and community’s low-maintenance environment. This 55+ community will feature homes offering approximately 1,475 square feet of living space, as well as cottage-style exteriors, one-story floor plans, wide doorways, an optional bonus room, zero-step entry, a private courtyard, and two-car garage.

The builder will also provide amenities that cater to the active adult lifestyle. A private clubhouse, as well as walking trails and a community garden, will be offered at Williams Mill. Bob Goodall, president of Goodall Homes, sees the active adult community accommodating residents of the South Nashville area as well as nearby Brentwood community who are looking to downsize from their larger single-family homes and stay within the area after they retire.
