The city of Murfreesboro, Tennessee is well known as one of the best suburbs of Nashville. However, this thriving city is much more than just a bedroom community for Music City. It's got a diverse job market, a quaint downtown, museums, parks, and much more. But what attracts many to move to Murfreesboro are the luxury homes in the city, so we're exploring the eight best expensive neighborhoods in Murfreesboro for would-be homebuyers.
Set on the southeast side of Murfreesboro, Windsong Farms is a community of high-end homes between Bradysville Pike and US Route 41. While this neighborhood may be small in size, the homes here certainly aren't. Most homes for sale in Windsong Farms include 4,000–5,000 square feet of living space and four or more bedrooms. These spacious homes are complemented by similarly large lots, often more than two acres.
It can be hard to believe residents are just minutes from downtown Murfreesboro when driving these quiet streets lined with wood fences. Still, the location close to US-41 and I-24 makes commuting a breeze, whether owners are heading into Murfreesboro or further on to Nashville. In the opposite direction, residents are just a few minutes from the peaceful rural areas of southeastern Tennessee.
Windsong Farms includes relatively few homes compared to other top Murfreesboro developments, so properties may come on the market less frequently. When they do, there may be a wider price range due to the high degree of luxury customization that current owners have chosen. This includes features like RV/boat garages, hobby rooms, gas fireplaces, and more. Buyers should expect to pay from just under $1 million to $1.5 million.
Windsong Farms Amenities
- Spacious custom luxury homes
- Large lots
- Easy highway and interstate access

They can take care of everyday errands or indulge in local favorites like Lemongrass Sushi and Thai and Toot's South. South Church Street also allows owners to get to Murfreesboro's center in just minutes.
Crescent Ridge housing is made up entirely of single-family detached homes. Some of the neighborhood's smaller homes can be found in the high $300s and up.
