We have to share these seriously amazing old houses that went to market this week--one in Cherokee Park, one in Eastwood, and one in the West End area of Nashville. If you dig historic houses, you're going to eat these three up with a spoon.

216 Fairfax Ave, Nashville, TN 37212, $550,000

3 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, 2,554 square feet. Just off West End Avenue and I-440, this house was built in 1928. Isn't the outside gorgeous? Inside there are gleaming hardwoods, a meticulously renovated kitchen and bath, built-in bookcases and a master suite located on the main floor.


517 N Wilson Blvd, Nashville, TN 37205, $535,000

4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2,425 square feet. Built in 1915, this bungalow is the oldest of the three houses featured here. We love the front porch and are nothing short of obsessed with the huge screened-in porch in the back. This house scores extra bonus points for its abundance of windows and the built-in half-bookshelves with tapered columns that connect the living room to the formal sitting room; there's also a dining room. This all adds up to endless space for entertaining.


1421 Franklin Ave, Nashville, TN 37206, $309,900

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 1,752 square feet. Sometimes it only takes one thing to really sell a house to us. In this case it's the gorgeous, distinctive chimney that anchors the front of this 1926 home. There's plenty to love about this renovation in East Nashville's Eastwood neighborhood: Original architectural details play super nice with top-notch renovations in the kitchen and bathrooms. We also love this spacious fenced-in backyard.
