We don’t do a Featured Listing of the Week every week, but we should — one of the many reasons we love living in Middle Tennessee is that there’s an almost unending array of unique and interesting homes. So with that said, here’s a cool and fantastically Middle Tennesseean one for this week, in the Leiper’s Fork area.


Just minutes from the village, this cozy cottage might trick you — it’s not a renovated historic farmhouse, but a newer build. It just has the cute charm of the former.


A few of the most attractive attributes in this 2-bed, 1 1/2-bath home:



Your view when you walk out the front door

Lamps lighting up the walkway to/from the welcoming bright-red door, and then that view — maximum privacy, maximum green, leafy beauty. 


The property

A great location to start with, minutes from friendly Historic Leiper's Fork Village. And lots of property to boot — more than 3 acres of beautiful hideaway.


Reclaimed wainscoting?

The farmhouse-cool look is amplified with the reclaimed trim in this vaulted space — informal and impressive at the same time.


Cozy stove, barn doors and loft

A time-worn and rustic aesthetic infused into a 1991 home, done right — this living space is cool and cozy, and totally unforgettable. 


Not your average backsplash

With the rustic design aesthetic elsewhere in this home, your standard tile backsplash might not have carried things through. This choice, though: bold without being overwhelming, creative without being kitschy.

So what do you think of this featured Franklin listing? Are you a fan of rustic design touches, or drawn toward more modern looks?


If you’re on the hunt for a new home, we’d love to talk with you about what you need. Give us a call.
