Open Houses With Much Midcentury Cool

Open Houses With Much Midcentury Cool

Every week when I look through the weekend’s Open Houses, I try and focus on something that’s timely, like neighborhood news, or pick out something that seems like a weekend trend, like a bunch of cool and contemporary new builds.


This week, a bunch of mid-century cool caught my eye. 


Maybe it’s Mad Men withdrawal, or maybe it’s just that Nashville and Franklin tend to have a lot of great mid-century homes, both renovated and time-capsuled. Figured I’d share a few of each for those of you who also love the look of a mid-century charmer.


First, your broader Open House options this weekend:

And here, mid-century cool from East Nashville to Franklin: 



2318 DENNYWOOD DR. 

NASHVILLE, TN

$227,500 

Donelson is a surefire source for cute mid-century properties, like this 1955 brick ranch that’s affordable, totally renovated and attached to a huge, awesome deck that looks out on a private, treed lot. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.



411 FIGUERS DR. 

FRANKLIN, TN

$249,900

So much charm in this renovated 1954 home in Franklin, it’s hard to know where to begin. Scratch that: Let’s start with the super-cute facade and perfect mid-century-cool carport. The renovated kitchen opens up to one of the 3-bedroom house’s best design features: a two-sided fireplace that anchors the main space and amplifies its style. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.



911 POTTER LN. 

NASHVILLE, TN

$279,900 

This is what you’re talking about when you profess a love for mid-century style — and the painted brick and color palette really brings the wow. Inside, the East Nashville home is stylishly renovated, but in a way that marries modern design with its 1958 roots. I particularly love the frosted circular insets on the glass door off the kitchen. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.



512 COLICE JEANNE RD. 

NASHVILLE, TN

$290,000

This leafy Bellevue-area lot is a stunner, and the screened-in porch really lets you enjoy it. Cute mid-century design elements flow throughout once you walk inside, too — the kitchen in particular still has those great 1966 vibes. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.



1900 AVALON DR. 

NASHVILLE, TN

$305,000

If you love mid-century bones put prefer a renovated home, this 1955 3-bedroom in Inglewood does it — open, modern kitchen and living area, gorgeous floors and tile baths, all within a historic structure that beams the East Nashville neighborhood’s personality. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.



1605 BERRYWOOD RD.

NASHVILLE, TN

$339,900 

We mentioned back in February that non-white trim was one of the home design trends of 2015 — check out how that plays out in this 1955 Inglewood ranch. I think it plays up the mid-century cool, as it’s on top of a this-year trend. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.



2315 VALLEY BROOK RD. 

NASHVILLE, TN

$1,025,000

This Green Hills ranch has a few quirks — some wallpaper that might not get universal love, some definite painting needs. But it also has location, land (nearly an acre and a half) and space, with more than 4,000 square feet of potential. Among the great finds if you love the time-capsule aspect: a cool-looking vintage stove, classic mid-century paneling and tile and lots of built-ins. Open Saturday 1 to 5 p.m.
