The ease of getting to know your neighbors is one of the many perks of living in Franklin’s Westhaven neighborhood. Large front porches, manicured sidewalks and lush parks help foster a sense of community. In addition to 1,500 acres of green space, Westhaven offers the convenience of The Westhaven Town Center, comprised of family-owned businesses where the owners are just as friendly as your neighbors. “The best part of Westhaven is the sense of community, walkability, protected green space, lake activities and retail space,” shares Jane Campbell of Keller Williams Realty. “Homeowners are offered an amazing amenity package, golf course, pool, gym, tennis, club house, free concerts … the list goes on.” The home at 1701 Championship Blvd. — at the corner of Wild Elm Street and State Blvd./Championship Blvd. — embodies the characteristics of the Westhaven community — from the moment you step onto the wrap-around front porch, you will feel right at home. Let’s take a look!
Grand double doors off the covered front porch lead into the heart of the 4,494-square-foot home. The open concept main floor features a formal dining room, two living spaces and a kitchen, in addition to a main-level master. Center-cut bamboo flooring creates consistency throughout the space. Custom built in 2005, the home was designed to maximize natural light and privacy. The minimalist design offers an aesthetic that is sleek and modern, yet warm. “When visiting the home, people are surprised that it offers more of a contemporary feel,” Jane tells us.
With glass tile that runs from the countertops to the ceiling, the kitchen is one of the home’s stand-out rooms. Shaker cabinets, silestone countertops, a five-burner gas cooktop, Jenn Air oven and a built-in GE Monogram refrigerator all make the kitchen as lovely as it is functional. A kitchen island designed to fit up to six chairs at a time makes the kitchen a central gathering place. Just off the kitchen, you will find a bar area with glass cabinets and a wine refrigerator — perfect for entertaining.
At either side of the kitchen, two main-level living spaces merge together. Each living room touches the kitchen and opens onto the back patio, and yet each are distinct spaces. The first area, located at the foot of the stairs, is currently outfitted with a kitchen table and two inward-facing couches. The space can easily be made to feel as part of the kitchen while entertaining. The second living space boasts a glass rock fireplace with built-in shelving and two-story ceilings. A more casual living space, this is one of the most popular spots in the home.
“The open space on the lower level opens to the private courtyard, making this the perfect indoor/outdoor private entertaining space,” Jane tells us.
Double sliding doors set to each side of the kitchen lead to the outdoor living area, which offers 1,000 square feet of additional living area, most of which is comprised of the main-level private center courtyard. A covered patio wraps around the home and opens to an open-air space. Thanks to the thoughtful construction of the home, this area is completely private, with beautiful trees lining the back, and a peaceful water features sets the tone for the spectacular space.
“When the weather is nice, you can open the back of the house up and use it as another very private room,” Jane suggests.
The convenience of the first-floor master is unbeatable. Natural light floods the space, and access to the outdoors is easy with a door to the covered back patio. The spacious suite includes a stylish bathroom with two separate vanities, soaking tub and over-sized shower as well as a walk-in closet with built-in shelves, drawers and hanging area.
While the front staircase will take you to an ensuite bedroom as well as third and fourth (currently being used as an office) bedrooms with jack-and-jill bath, the back stairs lead to a multi-purpose bonus room that can be converted to a home theater, exercise space or entertaining room. Ideal for entertaining, the room is outfitted with a bar area, space for seating, cabinets and a wine fridge. The large upstairs balcony is accessed from the bonus room and overlooks the main-level patio area.
“The current homeowners have a pool table and now treadmill in the upstairs bonus room and there is still plenty of space for movie watching, sun bathing on the upper patio and entertaining,” Jane shares. “The space is made to feel even larger than it is with high ceilings and an asymmetrical roof line. Through the French doors, the second level patio offers great views of the neighborhood and Williamson County’s rolling hills.”
This home was designed to maximize natural light with abundant outdoor living space and complete privacy. Other standout features of the home include a three-car garage, central vac, irrigation, professional outdoor lighting, speakers and a golf cart!
