Splendor Ridge Brings New Lifestyle to Downtown Franklin, Tennessee


August 14, 2019

A Lifestyle Steeped in Tradition

Welcome Home. Like many before, the founder of Splendor Ridge, Amy Smith Heinz, was inspired by the history and beauty of Franklin, Tennessee when developing her newest venture. The only new construction community in Downtown Franklin, Splendor Ridge offers nineteen homesites in a beautiful setting, along with a neighborhood walking trail connecting to Franklin Road, just five minutes’ walk from Main Street’s charming shops, restaurants, and more.

Playing off both the natural and architectural gems of the area, Splendor Ridge is an oasis for residents to create the home of their dreams and enjoy the best of both worlds. The historic property, which was established in 1902, has been reimagined in 2019 as a private enclave for Franklin residents and Nashville’s elite who wish to make their home outside the hustle and bustle of the city.

This sense of place and the respect and reverence for history is evident from the moment one enters the main gate. With a mix of architecture taking cues from classic Southern vernacular and modern luxury, the community is inviting and familiar yet unlike anything else in the area. Its location, just a short walk or easy drive to Downtown Franklin, is ideal for those who wish to be close to the town center’s shops, restaurants, and culture but also live among the beautiful nature found in Tennessee. Enjoy the nearby wonders of the Natchez Trace Parkway, parks, and nature trails or few hours’ drive to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and more. Downtown Franklin’s charming architecture, historic sites, and annual cultural events draw locals and visitors alike, while nearby Nashville has all the excitement and amenities of the city.


In keeping with the classic look and feel of the neighborhood, its logo and brand, developed by The Idea Boutique of Grayton Beach, Florida, has a historical yet timeless personality. The crossed keys in its logo are symbolic in that they represent hospitality, derived from the keys of Heaven and Earth held by Saint Peter as he welcomes souls at Heaven’s gate.

Although the historic property on which the homes will sit was first established in 1902, including the line “Reimagined 2019” as part of its brand shows that the community is a new development. It lends a sense of creativity and curiosity that draws outsiders in to learn more about the neighborhood and the meaning behind it. The neighborhood and its developers have a deep respect and understanding for the small-town way of life and history that people love about Franklin, Tennessee, and they are eager to share the beauty of A Lifestyle Steeped in Tradition.
