3704 Auburn Lane, Nashville, TN 37215

$485,000


Well, this listing surely won't last long. In Green Hills, not far from Woodmont Boulevard, this three-bedroom, three-bathroom classic Cape Cod-style residence has lots of perks and is priced to sell. 
3704 Auburn Lane was built in 1948 and sits on .36 acres. The backyard and patio area are especially charming and made private by numerous trees, shrubs, and a fence. This is a backyard intended for lots of really great soirees, for fireflies and barbecues. Looking out on it all is the tiled sunroom.   
Though the home was last remodeled during the '90s (according to Zillow), the kitchen--with its white cabinets, granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances--has definitely been updated since then. Only one of the bathrooms--which involves some rose-colored tile--cries out for an update. The other two are totally workable. And the master bathroom is actually really unique/cool in that there's a window seat that separates the two vanities. This bathroom joins a spacious master bedroom. Thanks to the steep-pitched roof that's commonplace for Cape Cod homes, there are all kinds of cool ceiling angles in the upstairs bedrooms. Also spacious: A den that's equipped with lots of built-in bookcases and a fireplace. 

As for practical matters, the zoned school system(s) are definitely something to write home about; Julia Green Elementary and John T. Moore Middle both have stellar ratings. 

About Cape Cod Architecture

Want to learn a little bit about Cape Cod style architecture? It's characterized mostly by a steep, gabled roof and plain front. The style, introduced by English settlers in the 1600s, originated in New England but was largely dormant until Boston-based architect Royal Barry Willis reintroduced it in the 1920s. The majority of the Cape Cod homes you see today were built after World War II, at a time when thousands of returning soldiers sought inexpensive housing. Traditional Cape Cods have a centrally located front door and chimney with a pair of windows on each side. The hearth was the heart of every Cape Cod style home.
