This fall, Hatcliff Construction will show off its handiwork in the 2016 Southern Living Custom Builder Showcase House, the ninth time the Murfreesboro, Tenn.-based firm has participated in the program sponsored by Southern Living magazine.

The 6,468-square-foot traditional southern home boasts a chef-style kitchen, master suite with barrel vaulted ceilings and a lower level entertainment area with billiards room, large gathering room, theatre and exercise rooms, bar, and two bedroom suites. In addition to a generously sized front porch, there are two large gathering porches with fireplaces, which offer panoramic views of the adjoining golf course.

The Showcase Home is located in the Grove, a luxurious, family-friendly, gated neighborhood situated on 1,100 acres in Williamson County, Tenn. The community hosts an array of amenities including the only Greg Norman Signature Golf Course in Middle Tennessee, a private club with expansive clubhouse, tennis facilities, day spa, general store, teen center and kid’s club, and an equine facility.

For the past nine years Hatcliff Construction has been a member of the Southern Living Custom Builder Program, made up of 100 of the South’s best home builders. “We pride ourselves on building homes of distinction that embrace a true southern lifestyle,” says Mary Hatcliff, co-owner of Hatcliff Construction. “The 2016 Showcase home is a celebration of what we love most about living in the south—plenty of room for family and friends to gather, large windows and doors that provide a lot of natural light and a seamless connection to extraordinary outdoor living spaces.”

Each year, Southern Living selects members based on their community reputation, strength of presence in their respective markets, superior quality, attention to detail, innovative style and experience, according to Kristen Bryan, Southern Living marketing director. “This home represents the qualities we look for in our Custom Home Builder Program—commitment to craftsmanship, southern architecture and quality homebuilding," says Bryan.

The home will be open to the public Oct. 14-30 and admission proceeds will benefit Operation Finally Home, a nonprofit organization that works to provide custom-made, mortgage-free homes to wounded and disabled veterans, and The First Tee, a youth organization that promotes life skills and leadership through the game of golf.
