Winchester, TN —Fanning Bend, a new planned community of lakefront vacation homes on 204 acres along Tims Ford Lake’s pristine shoreline will be built by GreenHouse Development, a Nashville-based real estate partnership.

The community is invited to a groundbreaking celebration on May 12 at 1:30 p.m. at the site. Governor Phil Bredesen will join Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation Commissioner Jim Fyke, Franklin County Mayor Monty Adams and other local elected officials and community leaders at the event.

GreenHouse Development was awarded exclusive acquisition and development rights to the property from the State of Tennessee through a request for proposal process of the Department of Environment and Conservation. The property is on a picturesque peninsula along the spring-fed Tims Ford Lake.

Over 70% of the lots in Phase I of Fanning Bend have been reserved by prospective buyers since the property was placed under contract by GreenHouse Development in late 2004. Located 1 1/2 hours southeast of Nashville, Fanning Bend includes lots to be developed over a three-phase, three-year time period. Reservations for remaining Phase I lots are available on a first-come first-served basis by going to the web site at www.fanningbend.com or calling Century 21 Mid-State Realty at 800-722-4068.

The high level of interest in Fanning Bend results from the natural beauty of the property coupled with architectural covenants that assure that homes will include quality features and materials and will be compatible with the natural and built surroundings, according to Mark Sturtevant, partner with GreenHouse Development. The community will include homes that are rustic yet contemporary retreats with emphasis on natural materials such as wood, brick and stone. Properties will be unified by corresponding common areas and streetscapes, neighborhood docks and nature trails.

‘The peninsula is a breathtaking natural environment and every home in Fanning Bend will exist in concert with that,” Sturtevant said. “Fanning Bend will be unparalleled because each residence will be individual and yet adhere to high architectural standards. All within a relaxing lakeside refuge where people have unlimited recreational options like boating, fishing and golfing at Bear Trace, a nearby 18 hole Jack Nicklaus course.”

GreenHouse Development’s progressive conservation design elements, including an innovative on-site storm water and sewer system, will also maintain the rich environmental integrity of the Tims Ford Lake area.

“Fanning Bend is taking the type of creative approach that this special place both requires and deserves,” said Jim Fyke, Commissioner of Environment and Conservation. “This project demonstrates that a balance can exist between stewardship of our land and water resources and a thoughtful, environmentally-sensitive approach to development that preserves the unique character of the property. Additionally, Fanning Bend will offer residents the opportunity to enjoy the outstanding beauty and recreational opportunities of nearby Tims Ford State Park.”

Tims Ford State Park is located on the 10,700-acre Tims Ford Lake in the rolling hills of southern middle Tennessee. It is regarded as one of the top bass fishing and recreational lakes in the Southeast and offers the Jack Nicklaus-designed Bear Trace at Tims Ford golf course only five minutes away. To reach Fanning Bend from Nashville, take I-24 east toward Chattanooga and turn right off of exit 111. Fanning Bend is approximately 90 miles south of Nashville; 75 miles north of Chattanooga and 60 miles north of Huntsville, Alabama.

To reach the site, travel Highway 50 West from Winchester. Turn right on Awalt Drive. Follow the signs to the groundbreaking location.
