This Shelby Park Modern Home Is Part Of A Controversial Neighborhood Trend


There is a trend in the Germantown/Shelby Park area — Big ultra-modern structures replacing older traditional neighborhood bungalows and shotgun homes. Germantown and Shelby Park are areas that have been on the economic upswing for the better part of 15 years. Homes that were far below the $100,000 price range jumped to $250,000+ with the advent of “flipping” houses. Traditional structures were gutted and given new open floorplans and sleek interiors but now, these older structures are being purchased, raized, and giant ultra-modern homes are replacing them. The price of the area is also changing with the new builds.  We’ve read and seen that there are many perspectives about the new builds in the area but the bottom line is the trend is older than these new homes. Median prices in this area are already well above the $250,000 mark and nearing $300,000.

This home is in the Shelby Park area. Built and designed by Dustin Hensley, it is in the “very desirable” 40204 area code. With 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths, there is plenty of space in this home for a family. The property boasts “high-end” finishes that include floor-to-ceiling windows, LED lighting throughout, a covered balcony with a view of the city skyline, high-efficiency appliances and HVAC, and more.
