For homebuyers in historic Franklin, Tennessee, living in small town America doesn’t have to mean sacrificing the kind of lifestyle that you get with more modern cities. Franklin is situated a short drive from Interstate 65 and about 30 minutes south of Nashville. It’s the perfect location for professionals, creatives, workers, makers, and movers and shakers both young and old. The town is famous for being a Civil War battlefield, but today, Franklin real estate packs a big city punch in a quaint, small town wrapper.
It’s no surprise to Franklin residents when their beloved community consistently makes lists of top small towns in America. It’s also been voted one of America’s romantic towns. At its heart is a vibrant downtown square, with rows of decades-old storefronts, most of which retain the character of their older days while the buildings and the tenants have been updated. They now hold boutiques, cute dessert spots, and hot dining options like Cork & Cow, 55South, Puckett’s, Meridee’s, and Grays on Main, which once upon another time was the town pharmacy. And yes, there’s even a Starbucks. But the highlight of downtown Franklin’s Main Street is the historic Franklin Theater, which has been delighting movie and show-goers since 1937, but received a dramatic head to toe renovation in 2010, when it also became the community’s first LEED-certified historic restoration project. Just north of downtown is the Factory, a growing creative hub, which also houses the Franklin Farmer’s Market.
Homes for sale in historic Franklin vary widely. There is a historic overlay around the square that aims to preserve the character of the homes and buildings. Just a few miles outside of downtown you’re as likely to find a century-old farmhouse (that’s still in operation) as you are luxury condos, like the ones found at Jamison Station just across from the Factory. While most homes for sale in historic Franklin are single-family, there are also fantastic condos, townhomes, and other multi-family units.
It’s that balance—the push and pull between old and new—that keeps buyers coming from all over the country and even the globe to purchase real estate in historic Franklin. From the hipster elite that flock to the area’s luxury brownstones for their creativity-inducing vibe, to the more cultured home buyer looking for quiet, country club homes, buyers of homes for sale in Franklin are sure to find the rewarding lifestyle they seek.
