Schell Brothers Announced as Newest Homebuilder at Durham Farms

December 16th, 2022

Award-winning builder, new to the Middle Tennessee market, launches sales of highly personalized residences in amenity-rich community.

HENDERSONVILLE, Tennessee Freehold Communities, developer of Vital Communities® nationwide, today announced Schell Brothers has been selected as the newest builder at Durham Farms, the popular, amenity-rich masterplan in Hendersonville, Tennessee.

Schell Brothers, an award-winning builder based in Delaware with divisions in Virginia and Tennessee, will present personalized, single-family detached residences set on large 70’ homesites with innovative floorplans within a prime location in Durham Farms, the community developed by Freehold Communities just 18 miles from downtown Nashville.

Sales of the Schell Brothers residences are now underway, and a Grand Opening and debut of their model home is anticipated for summer 2023. Offered in seven distinct floorplans, some with side-entry garages or optional walk-out basements, the homes will feature 2,750-plus square feet with three to five bedrooms, a minimum of two- and one-half baths and are priced from the high $600,000s.

Every home is also built with advanced Schellter Technology. From 6” exterior walls with R-23 blown-in insulation to tankless Rinnai water heaters, all Schell Brothers homes include numerous energy-saving “green” features and an abundance of natural light. The company’s newly released feature, HomeIQ, ensures homeowners live with the ease of technology at their fingertips to greatly reduce utility bills and add overall value.

Schell Brothers creates a unique homebuilding process with its proprietary Heartbeat Customer Portal. This innovative and easy-to-use program allows buyers to have one place to communicate with all Schell Brothers team members involved in their build via a simple text messaging platform. In addition, buyers can get design inspiration, track their build, view all their documents related to their home, and manage warranty items post-build.

“As we continue to introduce our mission of happiness and expand our brand in Middle Tennessee, we are thrilled to be a part of the successful builder team at Durham Farms,” said Jon Beaver, Division Manager for Schell Brothers. “Our approach to homebuilding perfectly aligns with the vision of Freehold Communities to create the very best living environments for all families who choose to call Durham Farms home. We look forward to a wonderful partnership.”

In addition to the upcoming Schell Brothers neighborhoods, Durham Farms currently offers for-sale new-home collections from Lennar Homes, Pulte Homes and Grandview Custom Homes. It also has a neighborhood of for-lease residences from 360 Communities.

All residents of Durham Farms have access to The Farmhouse, which features a state-of-the-art fitness facility, a swimming pool with a splash pad, an outdoor deck and lounge area, free Wi-Fi work café, a community conference room and a game and activities area. Durham Farms also features the Veterans Walk, a park which honors the service and sacrifice of America’s military veterans. Visitors walk down a path displaying bricks engraved with the names of those who served in the armed forces. A flagpole and a memorial plaque are at the end of the walk, where two park benches provide a place for visitors to reflect.
