We’re entering the home stretch of our major Glencoe Acres renovation project — soon, we’ll be able to show off a top-to-bottom re-imagination of the 1960s brick ranch above, and I can’t wait.

It’s been a huge project, but a labor of love, and I know the new owners are going to be beyond proud to own a beautiful home in a great neighborhood that’s been restored with an eye on honoring history with classic finishes and quality workmanship.

While we get ready to unveil it, I’ll focus this week’s Open House roundup on projects like ours: older homes in Nashville that have been refreshed and renewed for new homeowners who love historic homes and want modern function.

First, the broader options:


Then a few picks:

{mls: 1861765}

4005 Nevada Ave

Nashville, TN 37209


This 1920 Sylvan Heights bungalow was overhauled last year, with a new kitchen and other fresh details. Fantastic location for taking advantage of dining options in the Charlotte corridor, and a big screened porch for fall backyard hangs. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.

{mls: 1856340}

1320 Neelys Bend Rd

Madison, TN 37115


If you’re feeling priced out of East Nashville, Madison might be worth a look — you can find a totally renovated midcentury ranch like this one, taken down to the studs, for a much lower per-square-foot price, and with a lot more property. This home is bright, open and airy, with 4 beds and 3 1/2 baths, and a huge acre lot. Open Saturday, 2 to 4 p.m.

{mls: 1851653}

1814 Long Ave

Nashville, TN 37206


A really pitch-perfect example of a renovated East Nashville charmer — this 1930 home had a full overhaul in 2013, and the historic detail is still present (in details like the trim and refinished hardwoods), alongside classic and appropriate updates, like light stone countertops, shaker cabinets and subway tile. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.

{mls: 1854708}

1307 Eastland Ave

Nashville, TN 37206


This one’s an 1899 heart-stopper in East Nashville, full of original transom windows and fireplace tile and 11-foot ceilings. The updated kitchen and baths aren’t a period match, necessarily, but they’re understated, classic and classy. You really can’t beat the walkability here either — 5 Points is steps away, the Walden development with Jeni’s and Two Ten Jack/etc. is just a few blocks’ walk… This is the East Nashville ideal, all-around. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.

{mls: 1856582}

218 54Th Ave N

Nashville, TN 37209


Beautiful choices with the renovation of this 1949 Sylvan Park cottage — warm refinished hardwoods, classic contrasting white/black in the kitchen, luxurious master bath, stunning fireplace and lots more. Although it looks like it’d be on the small side at first glance, this place is deceptively large — 4 beds, 2 1/2 baths and almost 3000 square feet. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.

Are you on the hunt for a renovated historic home in Nashville? More partial to new construction, or a fixer-upper? Whatever you’re looking for, I’d love to help find it. Call or email TJ Anderson Homes, and tell me about your wish list.
