Hatcliff Builders have selected Mitchell Barnett of Mitchell Barnett Architects and Planners, based in Nashville, Tennessee, to create the design for the upcoming Southern Living Showcase Home. This home will be the fourth collaboration between the Middle Tennessee native and Hatcliff Builders, who have been constructing homes in Middle Tennessee for 28 years. This will be the 12th home designed by Mitchell Burnett Architect to be built in The Grove.

Mitchell Barnett is a world-renowned architect located in Nashville, Tennessee. His work has taken him all over from California to Ireland. Barnett has worked on a wide range of projects, including custom residences, educational facilities, commercial shopping centers, multi-family housing and more.

With a style defined as traditional with contemporary flair, Barnett says that his approach to each project differs, depending on two factors: The build site and the owner’s own style. In regard to the Southern Living Showcase Home, “we wanted to display the expansive views that are visible from the rear of the house while paying homage to the traditional southern home that Southern Living is synonymous with,” explained Barnett.

Southern roots run deep in this home with 3,000 sq. ft. of covered porches complete with exterior fireplaces, large windows for an abundance of natural light, a carriage home, and a picket fence to complete the Southern traditional feel.

Barnett reveals that “There is an excitement to entering every room, from the unexpected vaulted ceiling in the master bath, to groin and vaulted ceilings in the entry foyer that provides light to shine down from the second story, people who walk into this home have will definitely have that wow factor.”

Our Southern Living Showcase home embodies the perfect balance between Southern tradition and the luxury components that are synonymous with life at The Grove.
