Barclay Place in Franklin to be ready for Pre-Sales Soon!

The Jones Company Announces Opening of New Williamson County Development



Nashville, TN – The Jones Company, in conjunction with developer Pearl Street Partners are gearing up to open a brand new residential development in Franklin, TN called “Barclay Place”.  Homes in this 30 acre development will be built solely by The Jones Company, with 88 home sites available for purchase.  The company will begin pre-selling on September 1, 2009. 

Their vision is to create a small, closely knit community with various home styles, and sizes that are all within a short walk to the community’s central green.  Sidewalks, trails and green spaces surround and permeate Barclay Place and add to the outdoor livability of this intimate neighborhood.  The neighborhood will be heavily landscaped with street lamps and streetscapes.  Styles of the homes include French, English Tudor, Craftsman and Federal designs.

Barclay Place is located on Willow Springs Road, off Downs Blvd. in Franklin, TN.  There are multiple athletic facilities nearby, and children will be zoned for Winstead Elementary, Hillsboro Middle School and Independence High School.  .

Phase I will include thirty lots, with two model homes scheduled to be built in early October.  The homes will be from the Jones Company’s Cottage and Village Hometown collections.  Some plans will offer detached alley garages with covered breezeways.  Homes will be priced between $290,000 – $400,000+, ranging from 1747 – 3650 square feet. 

Barclay Place is being developed in partnership with Khris Pascarella of Pearl Street Partners, who has nearly 20 years experience in developing master-planned real estate projects.  Prior to forming Pearl Street Partners in 2005, Pascarella served as Senior Vice President of Development and Acquisitions for Southern Land Company.  He also worked with Gables Residential Trust in Atlanta, Georgia and was a development manager for Walt Disney Imagineering in Orlando, Florida, where he worked on the firm’s Celebration and Little Lake Bryan master planned communities.

 “Barclay Place will be a wonderful place for residents of Williamson County to call home,” said Richard Chapman, president and partner of The Jones Company.  “It’s easily accessible to both Downtown Franklin and the Cool Springs area and will have a charm not often seen at this price range.  Given the state of the economy, we have put much planning into this neighborhood and are confident homebuyers will find it both inviting and well worth the investment.” 

Every home in this community will be built by the NAHB Green Building™ Program standards, as well as ENERGY STAR™ certification standards.  Green features will include ENERGY STAR™ lighting, dishwashers, windows and fans, “Low E” windows, and the materials such as flooring, lumber, and bricks are all purchased from green manufacturers and suppliers.

The Jones Company has built nearly 3000 homes in Middle Tennessee since 1995, and has been in business since 1927.  The company has maintained a 100% “Would Recommend” customer satisfaction rating from Woodland O’Brien homeowner surveys conducted from fourth quarter of 2008 through present.  They are a local, privately held company based in Franklin, TN.  For more information, visit the company’s website at or call (615)771-8006.
