TO GOLF

Living on the links: A golf lover’s dream

The Club at Fairvue Plantation in Gallatin is private but open to nonresidents. SUBMITTED

F

or an avid golfer, what could be better than hitting a few balls in the morning before work? Or arriving home from work a little early on a Friday and hitting the links before sitting down to dinner? That’s a luxury afforded to the residents at any one of several golf communities in Middle Tennessee. According to Joe Godfrey, president of The Club at Foxland Harbor — a golf community located in Gallatin — living in a golf community just makes it easier to find time to work on your game. “If you have an extra hour, you can just stop at the range and hit a few balls … or get home in the evening and play four or five holes,” says Godfrey. As Traci Peel, marketing and advertising director for The Grove (a brand-new golf community located in College Grove) notes, the biggest advantages to living in a golf community are time and convenience. “Golf takes a lot of time … and being close to home saves as much as an hour in your day,” she says. In addition to finding extra time to improve your game, living in a golf community also affords camaraderie with fellow golfers. “From a lifestyle perspective, being in a club with people living in the same community provides a synergy not found in tradi

tional clubs,” says Peel. Part of that synergy can be found in the planned events that take place right in your backyard. “You have the social aspects of being a member of a golf club and being involved in the many golf events,” says Nate Mather, general manager of The Club at Fairvue Plantation in Gallatin. Godfrey says an important consideration in choosing a golf community is the overall appearance of the course and layout of the development. “Some developments look great when there are not many homes built,” says Godfrey, adding that once the community is built out, the layout may appear tight. “At Foxland Harbor, our community is designed with plenty of space between the homes.” Godfrey also recommends that you consider the atmosphere of the club. Is it highbrow and reserved or relaxed and laid back? Regardless of the atmosphere, Godfrey says you should insist on a high level of quality and service. “Go try out the club, and see how you like it,” Godfrey recommends. If you’re a veteran golfer, you may already be sold on the idea > > GOLF, PAGE 6 SUMMER 2013 | UPSCALE HOMES BUYERS GUIDE |

MIDDLE TENNESSEE GOLF COMMUNITIES

of living in a golf community. Your question is: Which one best meets my needs? In the Nashville area, you have a few choices. Depending on the location, amenities and atmosphere you desire, you can choose from several established and up-and-coming golf communities. If you prefer to be close to downtown, The Governor’s Club in Brentwood is an excellent option. For those who prefer to get away to the country, The Grove, nestled in the rolling hills of Williamson County, is a good bet. And for golfers who desire something in between city living and the country life, two communities in Sumner County — Foxland Harbor and Fairvue Plantation — offer great amenities with a hint of country living. Beyond location, layout and atmosphere, though, there are important considerations when choosing a golf community. Is the club public or private? What about the course? Who designed it? How many holes? What other amenities are available? Is membership mandatory? (If not, what amenities are available for residents who are not club members?) What is the pricing on the homes? To help simplify those questions, we’ve put together the adjacent summary of the four golf developments mentioned here. We hope you find it helpful in making your decision. Plenty of time to golf, quick and easy access to the course, neighbors and friends who share your love of the game, golf events in your backyard — there are many reasons to love living on the links. But here’s another one: You can’t beat the view. “Golfers and nongolfers alike will enjoy the sheer beauty of living in a golf course community,” says Godfrey. “There is nothing like looking out over immaculate green grass that has been cut to perfection.”

FOR WINE

The fine art of wine cellars

Hoyt Hill of Village Wines helped design and construct this 10,000-bottle wine cellar for a home in Nashville. It features redwood racks, a scored concrete floor and old barn wood on the ceiling.

T

o wine aficionados, the precious bottles in their wine cellar are akin to a collection of fine art — and sometimes just as valuable. That’s why it’s important that a wine cellar be properly designed, so that it can protect your investment. Hoyt Hill, who once served as wine director for the prestigious Wild Boar restaurant in Nashville, knows a thing or two about wine. These days, Hill uses his expertise as owner of Village Wines and as a designer/builder of fine wine cellars. Hill has worked with a number of clients in the Nashville area, helping them to create the perfect space for storing their precious liquid cargo. From a small under-the-stairs cellar built for about $3,000 to an extravagant one costing $150,000, Hill breaks down the fine points of what makes a good wine cellar. Important things to consider are capacity, placement and temperature, but you’ll also need to think about the type of cooling system you need and look at tools to manage and track the inventory of your cellar. Capacity According to Hill, you should start planning your cellar by determining how many bottles of wine you need to keep on hand. “You need a bigger cellar than you think you do,” says Hill, who adds that his clients often wish they’d built a bigger cellar. To determine the necessary bottle capacity for your cellar, Hill offers a formula: Take your average weekly household wine consumption, including entertaining and gifts, multiply 8 | UPSCALE HOMES BUYERS GUIDE | SUMMER 2013

by 52 (the number of weeks in the year) and then multiply by three (the average number of years a bottle should stay in your cellar). Using that formula, if you average three bottles per week, you’d need a wine cellar capacity of about 470 bottles. (According to Hill, most wines are released two years after they’re made, and the ideal age for consumption is five.) Placement After determining the capacity of your cellar, it’s time to decide where to put it. While you can put a wine cellar just about anywhere in the house, the best location is one that will require little chilling to maintain the proper temperature and humidity. “It’s called a cellar because they were traditionally located in the basement of old houses and castles. Originally they were caves,” Hill says. As Hill points out, the desired temperature and humidity for storing wine is pretty much the same as a cave. “The standard is 55 degrees (Fahrenheit) and 70 percent humidity,” he says. Hill says it’s possible to store wine at a warmer temperature or higher humidity — but it will affect the flavor and shorten the longevity of the wine. Placement of the cellar will also determine how much insulation you need to help maintain the optimum 55 degrees. A cellar located in the basement will naturally be cooler and require less insulation. And proper insulation leads us to our next item: the cooling system.


Cooling systems Wine cellars may be active or passive in terms of their cooling. A cellar in the basement of a home may require little to no refrigeration to maintain the appropriate temperature. With a passive system, Hill advises that, depending on the actual temperature and humidity of the space, your wine may “age a little more quickly than it would otherwise.” Active systems include wall units (similar to a window air conditioner), split systems (with an outside unit and fans that cool the space) and duct systems (with a condenser unit located outside and cool air delivered through ductwork). Hill says proper insulation is a crucial element of the welldesigned cellar. “Wine cellar cooling systems aren’t designed to run very much,” Hill explains. Without proper insulation, Hill says the cooling system will work overtime to cool the space, causing the unit to run more than it’s engineered to and resulting in premature failure of the system. Tasting room? If there’s one thing oenophiles enjoy as much as a glass of fine wine, it’s sharing that wine with friends. “They love taking you down to the wine cellar to pick out a bottle to drink,” says Hill. Which brings us to the question: Should you include a tasting room when planning your wine cellar? A tasting room is a wonderful feature and a great place to enjoy the fruits of your collection with good friends. But Hill offers this piece of advice:

Do not put a tasting room inside the cellar. “It’s better to have it outside the room, because you need to keep the cellar cooled,” Hill warns. According to Hill, any time the cellar door is opened, the climate condition of the space is affected. “The door must be insulated as well and have an airtight seal when it closes,” notes Hill. The added presence of a person — or people — will increase the temperature of the room (causing the cooling system extra work). And as Hill points out, sitting and sipping wine in a 55-degree room isn’t comfortable for most people. Inventory Once you’ve planned and built your brand-new wine cellar, you’ll need a way to keep track of the wine you have in stock. Hills says many apps, tools and programs exist for this purpose. He recommends Vinfolio, Cellar Tracker and The Personal Wine Curator. “Some of these can give you reviews of the wine and the current value of the wine, so you know at any given time the value of your stock,” says Hill. “They can also tell you the ideal drinking time and create a grid that shows where the wine is in your wine cellar.” Similar programs include: Bento, Your Wines HD, Cadent WineCellar, CellarBoss and VinCellar. Whatever the style, size and placement of your wine cellar, be sure to avoid making the number one mistake Hill says most > > WINE, PAGE 11

Create a backyard oasis with gardens, fountains, more By Patricia Rivera CTW FEATURES

T

he wise among us have said that gardens reflect our true personalities. That could explain why Tara Simpson and her family often sit around a rustic chimenea on her Alabama patio while roasting marshmallows and enjoying warm conversations. “I love camping. I wanted to bring that home with us,” she says. Small gardens, patios and decks can turn into magical spaces with just a little inspiration. Outdoor rooms can be created for every mood, season and budget. The possibilities range from a single hammock surrounded by a few palm trees on a patio, to a Zen garden with an elaborate design and flowing water. In the busy lifestyle that most people experience, there is a need to create a space that brings balance to a fast-paced rhythm, says Marjolaine Arsenault, a garden consultant in Chestertown, N.Y. “It is also a source of inspiration, where we can connect to 10 | UPSCALE HOMES BUYERS GUIDE | SUMMER 2013

our intuitive side and be open to creativity,” she adds. Simpson, who is also a customer service manager at the Tuscaloosa, Ala.-based OutdoorDecor Stores, says the best way to create a theme in an outdoor area is by starting with a focal point. In her case, she started with that small chimenea, and her husband later built a fire pit made out of rocks. Outdoor fireplaces have become more popular across the nation. When used with precaution, they offer a wonderful opportunity to bond with family while roasting marshmallows or hot dogs. A basic cast iron chimenea starts at around $300. “We can enjoy the outdoors year round,” says Simpson. Cynthia S. Benoit, president of Benoit Exterior Design in Carlsbad, Calif., says gardens and patios offer an opportunity to enjoy relaxing activities. They’re not just about growing flowers. “The most frequent mistake I see in a small space is impulsive planting of trees or shrubs that outgrow the area and then have to be removed at a great expense,” she says. Think outside the box about how you’d really like to use the space. At the home of one of her clients, for instance, she cre-


ated an intimate tea table. Benoit used a metal gazebo as a focal point to achieve a feeling of intimacy in a rather vast lawn. She used a gazebo kit, pots with vines that climb up the gazebo, and then draped four mosquito nets she found at an international market for a dramatic effect. The furniture is metal and wicker to increase the romantic feeling. And as an added plus, the area has the ability to be easily relocated. Take time to consider what items blend well together, Benoit adds. A theme that involves a flower garden, for instance, may require solid concrete with straight edges as a base, minimalist plantings with large pebbles as ground cover, contemporary shade structures like sails, metal cleanlined furniture and a geometric water fountain. The color palette would involve black, white, green and a cobalt blue or purple accent. “If you know the basics, then you can find the materials that go together and be amazed where you can find things,” Benoit says. Arsenault enjoys creating labyrinths for her clients to provide them a peaceful place to walk and meditate. Labyrinths serve as a source of inspiration. They too can range from a simple one, created from a do-it-yourself template, to an intricate, more personal one. “Creating a labyrinth in your own backyard invites you to take time to slow down whenever you wish. It also offer a place for gathering with friends and loved ones and to celebrate special moments or events,” she says. – © CTW Features

wine drinkers make: “They drink red wine too warm and white wine too cold.” The ideal serving temperature for reds is somewhere between 52 and 65 degrees — a bit cooler than the room temperature of most modern indoor spaces. The ideal for whites is between 45 and 55 — a bit warmer than the average temperature of most modern refrigerators (somewhere around 37 to 41 degrees). According to Hill, those who imbibe a fine wine may also do it a grave injustice by using the wrong glassware. “You don’t have to be crazy and have 20 different types of glasses, but 70 percent of what you taste is in what you smell,” says Hill. “As a result, if your nose is outside the wine glass, you do not really taste much.” Hill notes that a thinner rim makes for a better tasting wine. He says, when in doubt, go with a bigger glass. “What I use at home for regular occasions is the stemless Bordeaux-shaped glass from Riedel,” Hill says. “They are great for all types of wines, and they go in the dishwasher.” Learn more So, here’s to good wine Village Wines and good times.
