Brentwood Pointe is the original “Cool Springs Condo Community”. Haury and Smith started building units there beginning in about 1982 and are in the process of finishing up the last view units at “The View” right now.
This community is very conveniently located on General George Patton Dr. in Franklin and Brentwood. As well as being in 2 different towns, they are also in different school zones. If town or school zones are important to you, make sure the unit you are interested in is where you want to be. It is very easy access to everything in Cool Springs. It is still a “car necessary” community. There are some businesses nearby, but not restaurants and shops that make for a walking / shopping lifestyle. There is also a 55 + community with an assisted living center as part of the community. These are all one level living. The Assisted Living information can be found at: http://www.morningsideoffranklin.com/
The community has had an evolution of housing. The community began with condominium units that were a blend of two level townhouse living and one level housing that both had outdoor parking in the front of the unit. These sections have 2 and 3 bedrooms units. As the building continued in the next phase they added many more one level units with 2 car carports in the back of the units. These units have a private patio and carport behind them with a kitchen entry point and alley parking. These units mostly have 3 bedrooms and some have an upstairs bonus room. The pricing for these older units depends largely on two factors – is it a one or two level, with the one levels being more sought after in this community, and the condition of the unit. If the units have been updated and well cared for, they will be worth more to buyers than units that have had no upgrades done since they were built in the 1980s and 1990s. The later sections are built a little differently. They are built up on the hillside and are called “The View”. They have a wonderful view of the Cool Springs area. These units are usually 2 levels, but some of them have a master bedroom down, which is different from the 2 levels in the original communities. There are 2 and 3 bedroom units and some of them have one car garages. Most of them have decks in the back of the unit.
All the units have access to pools and tennis courts. There are 4 pools and several tennis courts.
Not all of the communities are managed by the the same HOA management company. There is a link specific for Section 2. http://www.brentwoodpointe2.com/
The link below is the company that manages The View. They don’t have much helpful information on their website though – you will need to call or email them. Sentry Management
The unit in the photo is currently for sale, listed by me, and offered at $229,900 as of June 2013.
