The good thing about Spring Hill is you have 2 counties in this city. Williamson County is the Northern and typically more 'uppity' side. Maury County is to the South and is a bit more 'country' if you will. But that pertains mostly to those SOUTH of Spring Hill on the Maury side.
You will find you get much MORE house for LESS MONEY by moving into the Maury side, yet you still get to enjoy the niceties of both counties (parks, shops etc of Williamson and Maury, lower taxes and better roads in Maury i.e. Kedron vs. Duplex).
The Rutherford Place/Rutherford Downs neighborhoods are awesome, with sidewalks and best of all no pesky HOA fees/hassles, yet there are no cars on blocks and no trash people around. In fact, when I drive through the neighborhoods that HAVE HOA's, I see more cars in the road and hear about more robberies/break ins than what takes place on the Maury side. And if you're a golfer, there is Kings Creek Golf Club right off of Kedron, only 2 miles from Hwy 396 (Saturn Pkwy).
I wish the above was true about the HOA fees for Rutherford Place. I just received a bill for $120 for "back dues" from some BS property management company. I'm not all that pleased with it but of course I do love the neighborhood. I guess I knew the fees were coming but why couldn't they just start billing the regular amount each month?

busysportsmom and dog i have to say are some excellent spring hill citizens!!(we need more of those)lol but any ways Mr. joseph your comments on cameron farms are disturbing. sure go right ahead and move into newport crossing and be connected to ten different neighborhoods so you can have a thousand cars drive threw like all the other neighborhoods in spring hill.(cambell station n wyngate) And for the people who live in newport crossing,(especially the unfortunate few in the back by cameron farms), cameron farms booted yalls trashy asses out a long time ago when cameron farms didnt connect. cameron farms didnt need all that new traffic and garbage infecting the perfect beautiful cf hood. You might as well have moved to columbia with the distance you have to drive to get out the damn Newport Crossing lol. for anyone moving to spring hill looking for a NICE place to live stick to the original very well developed cameron farms. Its guranteed to please the adults and the kids with its excellent people, minimum traffic, and its lush landscapes!
Um... I don't know what neighborhood you are thinking of.... Newport crossing connects only to pickets ridge and does not have through traffic because all the roads dead end. I know, I live there.:) And please refrain from using this type of language on a public forum, not everyone is comfortable with it.

Well, this could be a heated discussion. I have lived in Cameron Farms and now Newport Crossing. I also lived in Fieldstone Farms in Franklin. Fieldstone Farms was a better community over all and I wish I had never left. The only thing I DO like out here is Independence High School. My oldest graduated from Franklin High and my youngest 2 will graduate from IHS, which is top notch. I don't know if it is me (I'm a native Nashville girl) but the people out here are not very friendly and can be very rude. Probably just a culture clash. But you can get more for your money in Spring Hill than in Franklin. I will go back to Franklin or maybe Leipers Fork when the kids start college.

I LOVE the Laurels at Towne Center :) We've lived here for almost 2 years and are so happy to have happened upon this place. Our neighborhood is full of friendly families and our cul-de-sac is like a big family. The only thing missing is a pool :( We are right across the street from the Super Target, though. It's right behind the Home Depot and the Food Lion. The custom builders are building in phase two now.

I have lived in Crowne Pointe, Phase 2 along the back going towards Wingate, for 4 years now, and I have to say that once all the construction was done, I have been very pleased with our location. My all-brick home sits facing the cul-de-sac, with the side of the house facing New Port Royal. We haven't had much trouble in the way of speeders, since officers are regularly riding through and watching out for us. We are good friends with our neighbors and have good times! I have 2 teenagers at Independence and a 10-year-old at Longview. I love all the sidewalks and the proximity to the Rec Center and most anything we need. I feel very blessed to be in this place right now, and I will be sure to pass blessings along to everyone I meet!

I'm currently reviewing neighborhoods in Spring Hill, TN for my blog. Any feedback or suggestions regarding your neighborhood?

In response to your question above, I can tell you where NOT to move to...That would be Chapman's Retreat. We are currently looking for another home in a different subdivision in Spring Hill..The Home Owners Association President and some members are insane! Let me give you a few examples from my experience and several of my neighbors..1) Your car cannot be in your driveway for more than 48hrs without being moved unless you are good friends with the HOA President like the first 3rd house on the right when pulling into Chapman's Retreat from Duplex Rd. 2) Your trash can cannot remain at the curb overnight without a fine. 3) Your front door must remain black and your garage doors must be white. 4) Children run and play in the street all evening long, even in after the sun is long gone but you are expected to go 10 miles an hour so you don't accidently hit them in the dark. There are hardly any lights in this subdivision. 5) ABSOLUTLEY no chain link fences including dog runs allowed but you are allowed to have trash and trampolines in your backyard. 5) Your fence around your property must match all of the other fences in the subdivision unless you are the HOA president, who has a very short, picket fence as a backyard fence. and 6) You may not plant ANYTHING around your mailbox. All mailboxes must be uniform and look alike.....Happy House Hunting!

Not that I think the restrictions are OK but, I'm sure you knew about them before you bought in the neighborhood. If not, shame on you.

I was informed of this comment and wanted to make everyone aware that the Architectural Control Guidelines can be viewed at http://www.chapmansretreat.org/cgi-bin/filema...

While all of these comments are grossly exaggerated, we do try to maintain property values in our neighborhood.

I wish Chapman's Retreat H.O.A. would enforce the no parking on the street rule.

I'm also VERY interested to see how Chapmans Retreat is going to justify jacking up the H.O.A. Fee this coming year.

"All children’s toys, soccer goals, and bicycles should be stored in the garage or kept in the backyard when not in use."

Has this ever been enforced? This is all I see EVERYDAY driving through the neighborhood!

I can just keep going through the H.O.A. Rules that don't get followed. When coming into Chapman's Retreat via Duplex. That first common area on the left next to the pool has had many people driving ATVs/gocarts all around. It's annoying, and I know it has to mess up the grass some. They should try to check that out during Spring/Summer!

Let a child be a child while they can. There is nothing wrong with a bicycle or outdoor toys being out in sight. Just shows a sign of playful children. That should be a welcomed sight. At least you know they are happy children.

It is fine, in the backyard. I don't like seeing the front yard cluttered with toys anymore than I like seeing a garage full of stuff and cars parked in the driveway all the time. If your garage is piled up, you're not using that stuff anyway, get rid of it!

SteveO ... exactly.

There are even children leaving toys IN THE STREETS. For example, I have to get out of my car & move 'em just to drive down Chapman Lane sometmies! I constantly see toys, for several days at a time, in the front lawns all over the neighborhood. It's ridiculous.

Typical suburbanite. What people do on their own property is their own business. When you start paying their taxes and their mortgage then you will have room to talk. Until then, it is their business not yours. You keep your yard how you want and they can keep theirs how they want. You don't need to try to tell people how to live. They are not committing a crime.

True. Man I wish that was true, but you have to deal w/ the HOA rules, unfortunately.
