Carbine & Associates is celebrating over 30 years of building and developing by launching a House for Hope Designer Show House in the new, Franklin neighborhood, Southern Preserve. In March of 2017, the Modern Farmhouse style home was open for tour daily showcasing over a dozen Southeastern design tastemakers. After the sale of the home, Carbine donated 100% of the tour and proceeds to area children’s charities resulting in a $102,000 donation!

The House for Hope Foundation was begun in 1993 by Carbine, his brother, the late Denzel Carbine, and the Carbine team. Carbine’s vice president of operations, Daryl Walny, said the impact has been significant and this year over a dozen area children’s charities will benefit upon the sale of the home.

“Over the years, numerous subcontractors and vendors have joined Carbine in building beautiful homes with 100% of the proceeds helping area children’s charities. To date, with multiple builders participating, the House for Hope 501c3 Foundation has donated almost $600,000. This will be the first time a building team has partnered with multiple interior design creatives,” Walny said.

Southern Preserve site work is being performed by Carbine & Associates for the neighborhood located in the southeastern part of Williamson County off Lewisburg Pike in Franklin. Surrounded by four-board fencing and the beautiful rolling hills of Middle Tennessee, the neighborhood provides a bucolic lifestyle moments from a bustling I840 exchange. A quarter of this space is dedicated to wooded open space with just 20 acre-plus home sites available in the new, boutique neighborhood developed by Carbine & Associates.


Southern Preserve appeals to home buyers seeking the privacy of a large yard with true, one-acre-plus lots and it provides a fresh, alternative as home sites have been getting smaller in Williamson County with the price of home-building sites soaring.


Homes will begin in the mid-$700,000s with neighborhood with architectural review for continuity. The House for Hope Designer Show House will be the first home completed in 2017 and available for purchase with 100% of the proceeds benefiting area children’s charities.
