Top planned communities in Tennessee

From the Appalachian Mountains in the east to the banks of the Mississippi River in the west, Tennessee truly is a land of natural wonders and truly is one of the best places to live. The state’s genuine four-season climate features mild winters and comfortable days with relatively low humidity in the summer. Tennessee is perfect for year-round outdoor recreations, whether you prefer to hike the highland trails, tee it up on championship golf courses, boat, kayak, or fish on the numerous freshwater lakes.

In addition to being a tax-friendly place to live, Tennessee has the fifth-lowest average annual cost of living in America, more than 10% below the national average. That includes lower-than-average monthly costs for budget basics like housing, groceries, and utilities. Of perhaps greatest importance to retirees and other senior residents, Tennesseans pay nearly 11% less on healthcare costs than Americans in other states.

Tennessee offers retirees and families plenty of choices for their next place to call home with new and established luxury communities located throughout the state.

Fairfield Glade & Fairfield North

Fairfield Glade, TN
Homes, Townhomes: $70K - $1.5M Lots: $5K - $300K

Fairfield Glade is perched high atop the Cumberland Plateau, and offers serene mountain beauty as it sits on the highest point between the Rocky and Smoky Mountains. One of the favorite features of this area is the moderate year round temperatures. The pleasant summer days and the cool summer nights can be attributed to the Cumberland Plateau’s 2,000-foot-elevation, allowing for more comfortable temperatures and much lower humidity than most areas of the south.

What to do with all the fabulous weather and beautiful scenery? Golfing, boating, fishing, hiking, walking, swimming, tennis/pickleball-the list of fun activities available is simply endless! Plus, an outdoor amphitheater and biergarten just opened to host live music, movies, food and community events – it’s a great gathering place for neighbors to come together.

The community offers multiple subdivisions with a wide range of home sizes, price ranges, and views that include mountain, lake, golf and protected woodlands. Another attribute is the incredible cost of living in Fairfield Glade – no state income tax on wages, very reasonable home prices, and extremely low property taxes and club dues.

Fairfield Glade is just 6 miles from the city limits of Crossville, a small town, but bustling with activities. Crossville’s central location on Interstate 40 has made it a hub for many outlying areas and has given rise to a booming retail environment, offering shopping, dining and entertainment choices. The community is also located right off I-40, less than an hour from Knoxville, and an hour and a half from either Nashville or Chattanooga.

Testimonial
“We’ve experienced idyllic locations, having lived in Carmel, California for 17 years and having lived and traveled all over the country. But we knew the first time we visited Fairfield Glade, this was the place for us. We just fell in love with the architecture, the lot sizes, of course the weather and cost of living (what’s not to love). But most of all what brought us back was the friendliness of the people here.” Ron and June Levora

Fairfield Glade has 11 lakes and two marinas.
