I wanted to do a tour of this cute little town, Thompsons Station, because so many people have asked for one, it’s such a great place to live, and believe it or not as far as new builds go there is actually some inventory here so be sure to stay tuned for what you might be able to put under contract .. at least until its gone so move fast!! If you prefer to take a video sure be sure to check out my video instead of painfully reading this entire article!!
Thompsons Station is a city just south of Franklin and south of Nashville, and nestled right up against Spring Hill Teneseee. It is located in Williamson County, one of the most sought after counties in the Nashville area right now. And while most of TS is pretty rural.. population here is only about 7500-8000 people so not huge.. but just big enough. And though there isn’t a ton of businesses here in Thompsons Station , it is like I said right by Spring Hill which is much larger and has all the shopping, restaurants and amenities you need. Spring Hill is much larger at around 45k people so a bit of a different vibe there.
But, there are a few cute places you should check out like: H Clark Distillery if you love Whiskey, and if you aren’t into whiskey, they also serve craft cocktails and offer tours and tastings so you can see if you like it for yourself!! Also while there you’ll want to check out the Circa Grill which is an amazing restaurant located right next door serving up some amazing foods.. so be sure to check out their menu. But don’t take my word for the quality of this food.. just look them up on Google and see their almost 450 4.5 star reviews. You will love this place.. promise!
If you’re looking for outdoor activities there is the Battlefield Trail Hilltop preservation park to go for a hike or walk your dog.. and you are so close to Leipers Fork in Franklin Tennessee and the Natchez Trace Parkway for a beautiful drive or bike ride, so lots of outdoor activities here as well.
The commute from Thompsons Station is going to pretty easy to get to downtown Nashville if that’s where you’re heading. It will only take you about 30 mins with no traffic, and a little longer with traffic, but it’s a straight shot up i-65 and traffic in my opinion is not terrible.. but that’s all relative right. 🙂
So the neighborhoods! I wanted to just touch on a few of the newer neighborhoods to get you more familiar with them and so you can see what housing looks like here in Thompsons Station, and talk about if there is any availability at all!! I’m just going to hit some of the newer neighborhoods where you might see some availability but of course if you’re interested in a neighborhood I’m not showing let me know and we can certainly grab you some video!

Bridgemore Village is such a beautiful community and this neighborhood is a little bit older in a sense, as they started building it in 2007 but only just finished the last new builds this year and those are now sold. So you will be looking for resale in here if this is a neighborhood you love, but they do come up every so often especially since this has been being built for quite a while now.

You will be zoned for Bethesda Elementary, Thompson Station Middle, and Summit High School here in this neighborhood and you are not going to be super close to a lot of amenities like shopping, but the beauty of that is that you get to be further out, a little removed from everything, and enjoy your privacy and space. These are going to be larger homes 4000 to 5000 ft.² and as I mentioned acre lots so tons of space to just spread out and have room to breathe. There are currently homes in this neighborhood on the MLS… With more to come and in this neighborhood you’re going to probably be looking at around 1.7 to 2M plus. But finding an acre lot with an absolutely beautiful home right now under or around 2 million is not the easiest thing to do in Williamson County but you can definitely find out here.
OK and whistle stop is going to be our last stop of the day and there is a lot of availability in this neighborhood.

The community will feature a community pool as well as walking paths that are still to come.
As you can see it’s going to be a beautiful community and a great place to live… But one thing to note is that this neighborhood is near a railroad track… Hence the name of the community so if you wouldn’t love the sound of an occasional train this might not be the place for you.
