Show of hands: Who started off their day Friday with frozen fingers, feverishly scraping ice off a windshield so they could get off to work?

Sure, our little baby blizzard here in Nashville wasn’t much to speak of, but it was enough to make the morning commute annoying/fairly treacherous, and enough to make those of us without garages to park in curse our lack of ice-less heaven.

So, naturally, my weekly Open Houses roundup has some great garages to visit this weekend.

First, the wider picture:


Then, my picks:

822 Melpark Court

Nashville, TN 37204


Over the past few years, I’ve had a lot of clients whose main goal was to limit home-related headaches — minimal yardwork, short commutes, etc. This Melpark townhouse is the kind of place I’d suggest to those folks. It’s in a brand new development, close to Melrose/8 South (so an easy jump to downtown and lots of other busy parts of town), stocked with modern amenities that make life easier (NEST thermostats, no-maintenance quartz countertops), and set amid gorgeous greenspace that you’re not tasked with taking care of. Plus: two-car garage, for your iceless car needs. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.

267 B Riverside Drive

Nashville, TN 37206


Funny thing about East Nashville, for all its great attributes, one drawback I’ve noticed is that garages have traditionally been a more rare commodity. I’m not saying they’re impossible to find, they’re just less prevalent. So if a garage is on your must-have list, it shaves your options down a little. New construction is changing that some, but still, a big two-car garage like this one — in the back of a large, new, Charleston-style home with lots of covered outdoor entertaining space — is a good find. Open Saturday, 2 to 4 p.m.

909 Noelton Ave

Nashville, TN 37204


Prefer a detached garage, so you can keep all your dirty stuff — workshop, oily car, muddy bikes and sawdusty projects — separated? This new construction in the 12 South/Green Hills area has a two-car detached garage that offers lots of work/storage space with that little bit of distance. Inside the home, it’s all luxury and ample space, with 4 beds, 3 baths and more than 3000 square feet. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.

2003 A Galbraith Dr

Nashville, TN 37215


The prominent-garage facade gets lots of mixed feelings when it comes to home-design preferences — some buyers find it convenient and cool, others think it takes away from the aesthetic. I’m always glad when I see designs like this, in Overton Hills, that take a prominent upfront garage and make it an aesthetic bonus instead of a drawback. The woodwork above the door adds custom class and warmth, and I think the overall architecture feels classic but current. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.

Looking for a perfect place to park your car and the rest of your stuff in or near Nashville? I’d love to help. Reach out and tell me what you need, and I’ll start searching!
