We just added a new featured listing, at 1627 Eagle Trace Drive in Mt. Juliet, that has some pretty obvious high points:
– A big, private and fenced backyard
– Updated kitchen that’s open to a cool living space
– Easy walking distance to a community playground
– Did you want a billiards room? Done.
All that over almost 2,300 square feet of space, well under $250,000 asking, and it’s easy to see why more than a few Nashvillians find themselves drawn east to Mt. Juliet during a house hunt.
Have you been thinking about making a move outside Nashville’s borders? Our love for Nashville proper is longstanding and well documented, but we can make some pretty compelling arguments for why Mt. Juliet can be a perfect fit, too, especially for folks with growing families for whom space, amenities and community vibe are at a premium. Here are five quick thoughts about Mt. Juliet’s draw:
Those of us who work downtown have spent more than our share of time griping about the traffic the past few years. Living in Mt. Juliet gives you easy access to the Music City Star commuter rail, which lets you unclench your knuckles and kick back on the way to work, from home to the Riverfront in about 30 minutes.
Quality shopping options
The Mall at Green Hills and Hill Center are great, but it can be a bit of a battle getting to and fro. Mt. Juliet’s Providence Marketplace is one of the largest shopping complexes between Nashville and Knoxville, and for Mt. Juliet residents, it’s an easy jump with lots of parking — stuff you’ll definitely appreciate during holiday-shopping time.
Rapidly growing business sector
Nashville isn’t alone in attracting lots of businesses and jobs lately — major employers including Under Armour and FedEx chose Mt. Juliet for new distribution centers, and the small business scene has been blossoming too. The Mt. Juliet Chamber of Commerce’s website is a great place to keep up on all the happenings.
Plentiful parks for families
If you’re hunting for ample options for out-of-doors fun, Mt. Juliet delivers, and that’s true whether you’re looking to take kids to play (the 9000-square-foot, fenced Planet Playground at Charlie Daniels Park) or give your pup some room to roam (the South Mt. Juliet Bark Park). Check out some of the options at the Parks & Recreation Department site.
The new listing at 1627 Eagle Trace Drive is one example — Mt. Juliet has lots of well-kept family homes, and it can be welcoming to first-time buyers on a tighter budget and families who are ready to get into a spacious dream home too. Above, an example of what you can snag for around $630,000: 315 Queens Drive, with almost 3,500 square feet on the waterfront with a covered boat dock and a beautiful, renovated kitchen. Not too bad.
