Jaw Dropping Historic Williamson County Home For Sale

I try not to overuse hyperbole. It can be easy to do with real-estate, when everything is "custom" and "gourmet" and when drainage ditches double as "burbling creeks." But in this case the term "jaw-dropping" is completely legit. The Tennessean is reporting that this 22-acre private estate set on the Owl's Hill Nature Sanctuary will go on the market July 1. Being dubbed as a 6,604-square-foot "architectural masterpiece," the home will be for sale for $5.7 million.Completed in 1957, the house was built over a period of three years on Northern Williamson County's Beech Creek Road by Walter and Hulda Cheek-Sharp. The Cheek-Sharps, who were the last tenants of the Cheekwood mansion before donating it, originally situated their house on 400 acres, but ended up donating the large majority of that--all but 21.7 acres--to Owl's Hill. Still, because the house is surrounded by the several hundred acres of nature sanctuary, it comes with no small amount of privacy.The two-story home was designed by architect Bob Street, a founding partner of Nashville's Street Dixon Rick Architects. It has four bedrooms, four full baths, and two powder rooms. The Cheek-Sharps were apparently granted their request for a home with an "international modern" style, very much different from the formality of their former residence, Cheekwood.In the end, gorgeous property, tennis court, pool, and other luxury features notwithstanding, I think that's what's so notable about this property: It's sleek and stunning without being ostentatious. The geometric shape, the floor-to-ceiling windows, the spiraling staircase all make this property a knock-out.
