The Westhaven master-planned community is a beautiful, sustainable work of art that has evolved over the last 20 years. This mixed-use residential community features stunning architecture displayed in the distinct styles and designs of each home, amenity space and retail offering.

Additionally, nearly half of the community’s landscape is dedicated to green spaces and parks incorporated throughout the neighborhood—including Westhaven’s golf club and course. Collectively, these aspects were mindfully designed to complement the lush native middle Tennessee surroundings.

Westhaven’s traditional neighborhood design promotes a sense of community through the incorporation of front porches into the design of each home, carefully landscaped streetscapes and sidewalks, and green spaces and parks, all of which provide opportunities for neighbors to interact with one another. Westhaven was also designed to nurture and promote neighborliness and connection with local communities.

Rather than be its own, isolated neighborhood within Franklin, Tenn., Westhaven includes a public elementary school and thriving town center—both walkable features of the community—with retail, restaurants and public green spaces, which plays host to several annual events open to the public. These details are meant to be appreciated by all, serving as a bridge that connects Westhaven with the greater community.
