Brigadoon Village is a premier, master-planned waterfront community, encompassing more than 200 acres on the Tennessee River near Athens, Alabama. The community offers riverview and interior home sites, varying home types and price ranges, underground utilities, local boat launch access, a private marina, pool and pool house, rolling hills and mature trees. When planned amenities are completed, the community will also feature nature walking trails, an expanded clubhouse, a pool, tennis and basketball courts and common green spaces.
During 2005 Egypt Bluff Properties engaged respected masterplanners, Bill Peters Architects, to assist in the development of a plan to re-develop Brigadoon Subdivision and the adjoining 100 acres. We were excited to leverage off the strengths of the current development; natural scenic home sites within a gated community and proximity to Alabama's second largest lake, beautiful Wheeler Lake. In addition, we continued with the Scottish theme and restrictive covenants similar to the existing Brigadoon Owner Association's covenants in the new phases.
Similar to historic neighborhoods, our new phases offer homes in a variety of styles, sizes and prices, with garage entries to the rear accessed from alleyways. Starting in the 200's, our single family homes will offer intimate lot sizes for those wishing to enjoy lovely courtyards without the responsibility a large yard to maintain and range to the larger more traditional acre lots. The plan envisions approximately 160 new lots for building homes of various sizes and prices. We will have something for everyone.
We utilized the Traditional Neighborhood Development (TND) style of planning to create a sense of place that connected the residents to each other, the land, the water and the community. Our plan incorporates extensive green spaces and interconnecting walking trails. We have created streets throughout the community that are narrower, to slow traffic. We have planned a community with a high degree of connectivity.
