Hendersonville, Tennessee, located about 15 miles northeast of Nashville, is a town of about 40,000 inhabitants. Hendersonville is perhaps best known for being the home – and resting place – of music legend, Johnny Cash. However, local residents (as well as those from nearby Nashville and Gallatin) have new cause for excitement the construction of a spectacular 400-acre office, retail, and residential development, Indian Lake Village.
Boasting easy access to downtown Nashville, and magnificent waterfront property along the shores of Old Hickory Lake, Hendersonville has always been a popular place to live. Real estate statistics for the Summer of 2007 show a good inventory of all styles of housing, an average home price of $235,000, and the average home is on the market for LESS than 10 days! Newcomers to the area are continually surprised with just how much home they get for their dollar. The Indian Lake Village development is sure to have an impact on the market; a positive impact for those who own a home in the Hendersonville area. Maybe we need to take a closer look at this much-anticipated project.
The developers of Indian Lake Village, Halo Properties, are calling this project the crowning achievement of [their] master developmental efforts. Described as a near-perfect balance of commerce, convenience, residence, and recreation, Indian Lake Village will comprise 2.5 million square feet of office space, 1.5 million square feet of retail space and restaurants, a hotel, conference center, a cinema, and 1,000 homes. These homes will be surrounded by greenspace and recreation areas, including the Bluegrass Country Club, Old Hickory Lake, The Park (20 acres of trails, playing fields, and gazebos), and the brand new Hendersonville Library. However, the real beauty of Indian Lake Village is that it benefits the whole community, the entire Hendersonville area.
In addition to community benefits like employment, and added infrastructure, Indian Lake Village, with its wide variety of services and attractions, will be a major draw for Hendersonville. And, with the extension of Vietnam Veterans Boulevard joining Gallatin Road, the area is opened up to lots of new traffic, which in turn has spurred the development of many new restaurants, stores, and services, including several major chains. This magnificent development is sure to mean great things for Hendersonville, and all who are lucky enough to be living there.
