"Get Me To The Gateway"

"Get Me To The Gateway"

The metropolitan lifestyle is not the first thing that comes to mind when you hear about Murfreesboro, Tennessee. The charming suburban city embodies the beauty of the golden ages, while it manages to adapt to the vast growth in population; mostly due to the prosperous job market. Murfreesboro has been labeled one of the fastest growing cities in the United States. Making it no surprise why Swanson Development decided to spearhead the first luxury condominium development in Rutherford County.

From loft living to customized penthouses, the Gateway Village at 820 N Thompson Lane in Murfreesboro has plenty to offer. These lavish condos have a handful of amenities, premier location status and elevated security that simply validates their title as Murfreesboro’s premier condo development.

As a resident, I’ve come to find more than a few reasons why the Gateway Village is the perfect place to call home and I want to share them with you.   

Here are my four Gateway Village favorites.

b2ap3_thumbnail_unnamed-15.jpgVERANDA:

Whether I’m hosting a small dinner party or a large business mixer, the veranda is the ideal location. Free of charge for residents – the veranda sits on the fourth floor with an immeasurable view of the city. While the sun sets on the front of the building, this hidden treasure is the perfect afternoon location for you and your guests to enjoy.

 

LIFESTYLE:

The maintenance free and pet friendly elements are perfect for families, singles and retirees alike.

From the soft sounds of jazz that play throughout the grounds, to getting to know all of your neighbors during your morning ride down the elevator- the charm cannot be matched. Ultimately creating a elegant lifestyle for you and your guests.

AMENITIES:

Offering a private gym, fully equipped business room and screening room. The main building has plenty to offer. However, the amenities don’t stop there. A few steps away residents are offered a pet station, access to the Saint Thomas Rutherford walking trail and a plethora of food trucks each Friday! The Gateway Village makes living in the building so fun, it’s hard to leave.

VIEW:

In real estate it’s all about location and the bonus of the Gateways location is the breathtaking sunsets. Every afternoon (weather permitting of course) my living room is transformed with the beautiful colors of the evenings sunset. Although, sunsets are a gift everyone can get, seeing it from above the cityscape is an incomparable site, enjoyed by all residents.

The Freedom of Downsizing

The market is changing. Lifestyles are changing.  More and more we tour couples and singles that are ready to downsize.  Most often because their children are grown and they over the maintenance that comes with a land and house.  Some are giving up 3000 to 5000 square foot homes for a 960-1495 square foot condo. Empty nesters are ready to travel, reconnect with their spouse, and visit friends and family more often.

There are some that walk in and immediately smile and sigh.  They start 'living' the minute they see one of the condos.  They paint the picture by discussing which piece of furniture fits and what they will bring and what they will be ready to sell or give to the kids.  You can feel the excitement in their voice.  We've even seen some tear up.  They are ready for a new chapter.  

Then there are those that are not sure about downsizing.  They are ones that are afraid to let go of anything because they might 'need' it.  It doesn't matter that they have not set foot in the 2 extra bedrooms for over a year. They always think someone might come visit and they will need to have the space.  They dream about making a change..... someday.   Those folks are not ready yet.

As for the rest..... 

We are grilling out, making new friends, walking the Greenway, having an afternoon glass of wine on the veranda, meeting the owners of the small businesses, watching football and movies in the entertainment room, playing golf and tennis at nearby Old Fort Recreation, and shopping.   

Downsizing to a condo in a mix-use development in the middle of Murfreesboro means you are a part of a small community where you can walking to the coffee shop, meet new friends and get to know the businesses owners.  Knowing you can leave and travel for as long as you want and not worry about the maintenance of a large home...is a relief.   

When friends and family visit, they may rent our guest suite if it is available or stay at one of several great hotels located nearby. Visitors enjoy having their own space. Less for you to clean and more time to enjoy your guests.

If you are thinking about downsizing, take a look at a condo lifestyle for your next chapter.

Unique and Beautiful Pavers at The Gateway Village

Unique and Beautiful Pavers at The Gateway Village

Have you drove through The Gateway Village and noticed the streets and parking areas?  A unique paver system addresses the Federal Government mandate handed down through EPA to State and local jurisdictions for water quality and quantity management practices.  Basically the system acts as an impurity filtration system for storm water by traveling through 8500 psi pavers, then through two feet of graded aggregate stone and by doing so the storm water is cleaned before it gets to the ground water table.  This system alleviates the continued maintenance on an alternate system of retention or detention ponds and provides for better planning land use.  

Not only is it functional but also beautiful.  The designs used make for a beautiful stroll along the grounds.

A Vacation Lifestyle

Are you familiar with living a relaxed vacation lifestyle?  Living at The Gateway Village is like being on vacation every day and our tenants agree.  Imagine waking up in the morning and stepping out to the common areas and hearing music.  Just like upscale hotels at resorts when on vacation.  Maybe you work out of your home and need to use the business center located on site.  It's only steps away from your condo.  If you have an office, store or restaurant located on site then you never have to fight rush hour traffic.  If you do have to leave for work, your car is parked in our secured parking garage. 

Your morning may consist of going to the gym.  We have one equipped with treadmills, weights and more.  There is even a personal trainer to contact if you need guidance.  

Do you like to entertain?  What about a room large enough to have a Superbowl party on the weekend? The Gateway Village has an entertainment room for all your friends to gather and best of all, you don't have to clean your home.  With restrooms in the common areas there is nothing else needed but food and friends and a good relaxed time. 

Your weekends are not filled with yard upkeep.  This will free up much needed quality time with your friends and family.  There are many restaurants within walking/biking distance and not far away is Old Fort Golf Course.    It's all nearby and easy to get to.  

The best part of the day is when you want to relax in a quiet setting.  The top floor veranda is the perfect place to unwind with a book and watch the sunset. 

Then top off your evening in your own condo.  It's quiet.  It's easy living.  It's yours. 

This is just a touch of living at The Gateway Village.  Are you ready to enjoy a new and relaxed lifestyle?

Won't You Be My Neighbor?

If you were a child of the 60’s and 70’s you may have seen Mister Rogers Neighborhood on television.  Mister Rogers would enter his home with a warm and friendly jingle that would welcome you and ask you to be his neighbor. As he made his way through the house he would put on his sneakers and sweater.  He began his day relaxed which set the tone.  Most of us begin our day with 2 cups of espresso and a smartphone.  The TV Guide once quoted, "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood makes us, young and old alike, feel safe, cared for and valued.... wherever Mister Rogers is, so is sanctuary" 

During the show Mister Rogers would take a walk up the street(without texting) and visit with other businesses and introduce himself to the new neighbors.  He never used a car since everything was located just a few steps away from home.  He would greet those along the way with a smile and was relaxed when visiting.  He would introduce those he met to others and tell about what they do and how they are valued in the community.   Mister Rogers knew how to build relationships with businesses and individuals. 

The Gateway Village is continuously growing and becoming a true neighborhood.  If you are up early enough you will catch some of the tenants walking their dog or working out in our gym.  Some will be arriving home from an overnight shift at one of the nearby hospitals.  All will greet you with warm smiles, and a friendly welcome.  They all love to tell about how much they enjoy their new home and lifestyle.   One even mentioned they felt as if they were always on vacation! 

As a mix-use development, The Gateway Village also includes retail shops and offices.  Businesses located at The Gateway Village are provided many opportunities to get to know each other and meet the tenants.  Having these opportunities paves the way for more growth at The Gateway Village and in Murfreesboro.  Building those long lasting relationships on a professional and individual level is what The Gateway Village is about.    

If you are looking for a new lifestyle, a new location for your office, retail shop or restaurant in 2013, you will want to take a look at The Gateway Village.  With the warmth of great neighbors and the perfect location in Murfreesboro for your business, I have to ask....

Won’t you be my neighbor?
