Built in 1910, the nearly 7,000-square-foot home was originally a church — a fact that’s pretty clear from first look, given the dynamic spire and beautiful arched front door. Today, it’s a stylish and totally renovated custom home replete with professional-quality recording studio and small urban farm plot.
It’s easy to go too far when you’re renovating a historic building — especially one this old, and one that wasn’t initially designed explicitly for living. But the updates and design here in this 5-bed, 4-bath home are smart and subtle.
The kitchen is a great indicator — you can still feel the history in the ample space, but it’s ready for modern living (just look at that state-of-the-art range).
The main living area is a stunner, too, with library built-ins, a stately fireplace and high ceilings with a loft overlooking the space. As so many of us have gotten more passionate about eating healthy and eating local, the gardening setup is a big selling point too — you can’t get more local than fruits and vegetables grown in your own urban farm. And the one-acre property is a great size for folks who want enough space for privacy but not so much land that upkeep is overwhelming.
I can’t imagine something more perfect for a songwriter or musician looking for their own private sanctuary, with space to work, room for a growing family and truly unique historic charm.
For the music-makers looking for a space with a slightly more modest budget, here are a few other homes with recording studios already in place, on the market now:
502 Rural Hill Rd.
Nashville, TN 37217
Great more-than-a-starter home in Edge-O-Lake Estates with 3 beds, 2 baths and a basement recording space that’s sizable and comfortable.
1105 Cedarview Ln.
Franklin, TN 37067
Beautiful recording space (in a charming Franklin family home) with exposed beams and enough room for a full band.
3045 Coral Bell Ln.
Franklin, TN 37067
A huge Franklin home (nearly 5,500 square feet with 6 beds and 4 1/2 baths) that’s set up for recording in style with an industrial-cool studio space, and entertaining in style with a big game room, too.
If any of these homes strike a chord (pun unintended), let me know — I’d love to show them to you.

"TJ was awesome! We bought and sold a house with him during the first half of 2012. He was thorough, patient and helpful. Plus he did it all with a sense of humor which we appreciated. He was great in showing us all of our options and get feedback so that he could then show us just the few gems that truly fit our needs. In the end, he found our current house 5 minutes after it went on the market. I'm positive that another realtor would have missed that, but not TJ.I would highly recommend him to anyone!"
