Nashville Retirement Homes For Sale
Nashville's population is certainly on the rise and among those moving here in droves are retirees. A mild climate, excellent health care facilities, and more than enough culture and entertainment to keep people of all ages busy, it’s easy to see why anyone would want to call Nashville home, retirees included. But along with all Nashville has to offer, many seniors are also choosing Nashville for retirement to be closer to their children and grandchildren as more and more people migrate to Middle Tennessee for its expanding job market.

If you’re thinking about retiring in the Nashville area, you shouldn’t have much trouble finding a great community that fits all your individual needs and wants. But among some of best are a few of our recommendations, which include the following:

The Heritage at Brentwood - Brentwood, TN

Offering active adults a sprawling 48-acre campus with everything you could want in an active adult community, The Heritage at Brentwood is arguably the most desirable retirement community you’ll find here in the Nashville area. Along with great homes, there’s also a clubhouse, day spa, and a dining and lounge area for residents to enjoy as well.

in an inviting neighborhood setting and represents “the new beat of senior living.”  This Active Adult Community is a neighborhood with lovely villas and apartment residences, winding streets, walking paths and picturesque views of the wooded hills. The Heritage at Brentwood features a Clubhouse that houses the Grand Hall and the Market. You can also get a manicure in the day spa, pursue a favorite hobby in the woodworking shop and savor a flavorful meal. There is also the Steeplechase Lounge that is ideal for meeting friends for a pre-dinner cocktail, a well-stocked library and an activities parlor.

Water’s Edge - Franklin, TN

Although the Water’s Edge subdivision in Franklin isn’t age restricted, about one-third of its 377 homes are specifically designed for 55 and over home buyers. A quiet community that provide ample living space, a convenient location, and homes that are sure to retain their value, you can’t go wrong with a home here in Water’s Edge.

Lake Providence - Mt. Juliet, TN

Developed by national home builder Del Webb, Lake Providence features a resort-like atmosphere that’s about much more than just attractive living spaces. Successfully putting the word “active” in active adult, amenities here include a 24,000 square foot clubhouse, a fully stocked 15-acre fishing lake, an aquatic center and exercise facility, an outdoor swimming pool, and a sports complex with tennis courts, bocce ball courts, and pickle ball. And believe it or not, that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Stephens Valley

Although construction hasn’t even begun on Stephens Valley, it won’t be long before this is one of the top destination for retirees moving to Nashville. In all Stephens Valley will include up to 1,400 custom built homes, as well as a commercial section to the neighborhood that will include restaurants, shopping, office space, and even a boutique hotel with between 85 and 100 rooms. For now, developers are planning to build around 50 to 75 homes a year, with the entire build-out last around 20 years. Construction for the community infrastructure and utilities is expected to begin later this summer and homes will likely start somewhere in the low $400s.
