Construction is expected to begin in May on the first homes of a 400-home subdivision in South Mt. Juliet that has been registered for more than three years.
Waltons Grove is the name of the development that will sell single-family homes in the price range of $300,000 and $400,000.
The development spans 163 acres, southeast of Providence and just beyond Del Webb to Lake Providence with entrances at Central Pike and Beckwith Road, said Trey Rochford, vice president of developer administration. Rochford Realty & Construction.
Three phases totaling 124 homes recently received final approval from the Mt. Juliet Planning Commission. The first homes are expected to be completed around November, Rochford said.
Two more phases that will total another 91 homes combined are expected to be presented to the planning commission within the next 30 to 60 days with home construction expected to follow, Rochford said.
Around 200 additional homes are also planned for Waltons Grove in the final two phases. The timeline for those homes “will depend on market uptake,” Rochford said, but he gave an initial estimate of about two-and-a-half years before construction of the final stages begins. The number of houses in these last two phases could fluctuate, according to Rochford.
Waltons Grove dates back to 2015 when preliminary and final master plans were approved by Mt. Juliet, documents show.
Infrastructure, including roads, sidewalks and utilities, for Waltons Grove is underway. A turning lane has also been provided on a section of Beckwith Road at the entrance to the neighborhood.
The development has an impact fee of $2,500 per lot for road improvements in the southern part of town, Mt. Juliet Deputy Director of Public Works Andy Barlow said.

Regent Homes, NVR and Celebration have signed on as initial builders, Rochford said.
The name Waltons Grove comes from an area associated with the Mount Juliet Estate in Kilkenny, Ireland, Rochford said.
