Vandalia Cottages

Vandalia Cottages

Franklin-based Bristol Development Group is pleased to announce that site work has begun for Vandalia Cottages, a unique residential development on one of the last undeveloped lots in Franklin’s historic downtown core.

Bristol has partnered with Nashville-based DA|AD, one of the leading architecture firms in the Southeast, to create a pocket neighborhood concept of 17 units centered around common courtyards. Four different cottage designs range from 1,240 to 1,805-square feet, all within easy walking distance of downtown Franklin’s Historic Main Street retail district.

For Bristol, Vandalia Cottages underscores the importance of a strong sense of place, offered through a small, close-knit community, top-quality finishes and innovative design—and at a price that hasn’t existed within the Mack Hatcher loop. The pocket neighborhood concept is designed to address density, privacy and community in a way that encourages greater interaction among neighbors and a more social lifestyle.

Located just three blocks from Main Street, the community will feature homes with broad front porches, reclaimed antique front doors, antique newel posts and gas lanterns.  Other amenities will include chef-grade appliances, granite, marble and hardwoods throughout, tiled baths, individually selected lighting, manicured gardens and virtually no yard maintenance.
