Indian Lake in Hendersonville will cover about 400 acres and has brought a new appeal to the Sumner county area in addition to the attraction of Old Hickory Lake. The upscale retail outlets have a direct correlation to the number of luxury homes in the immediate area because without the disposable income of the luxury home residents these upscale stores could not survive.

The increase in demand for luxury homes in Nashville, Brentwood, Hendersonville and Franklin has also seen the fortunes of the smaller independent luxury home builder on the rise. Builders have even relocated here from traditional luxury home markets such as California.
One luxury home builder in the Governors Club in Brentwood commented "The market for quality homes just continues to increase and will do so for the next fifteen years even with a downturn in the real estate market."
As the demand for upscale luxury homes close to downtown Nashville in areas like West End, Belmont, Green Hills increases it has meant that homes that were built in the 50's and 60's are now becoming sought after for their over sized lots and fantastic location.
These homes are being bought entirely for the lot, demolished and then instead of a $500,000 60's ranch a state of the art $2 million dollar home is built.
If you drive through some of the older neighborhoods such as Cherokee Park you can now see total renovations of homes that are being reproduced in places like Westhaven in Franklin but in the original community setting that is becoming so appealing to the modern buyer who doesn't demand a 2 acre yard and is happy to see the garage and "guts" of the home at the back of the lot. These back alleys also enable private parking and keep the front elevation of these luxury homes intact.
if you are considering visiting the Nashville area and would like to stay in hotel that reflects the level of attention to detail and quality that you have become accustomed to we recommend the Hermitage Hotel and the Capitol Grille for a good meal.
