As Top O’ Woodland, the vibe was distinctly in line with the home’s early-1900s history, but word from Nashville Business Journal is that the new owner, Lyon Porter, is renovating with more of a sleek, Brooklyn-esque aesthetic.
Victorian homes are easy to fall in love with, with their towers and bays and porches and decorative trim, and walking into one can feel like a vacation into the past — which definitely has something to do with why so many B&B owners gravitate toward Victorians.
While this isn’t a historic home (it was built in 2007), as you can see, the beautiful touchstones of Victorian design are front and center on the exterior — that front porch alone is enough to inspire dreamy visions of fall afternoons on a rocking chair. The interior is bright and contemporary, but doesn’t skimp on the time-tested design either, with detailed chandeliers and ceiling medallions and crown moulding.
East Nashville is known and loved for its historic homes, and this Lockeland Springs Victorian, built in 1911, is a perfect example of why. High ceilings, transom windows, gorgeous fireplaces and that huge, welcoming porch are just a few of its attractive qualities.
A 1910 Victorian with a fantastic 12 South-area location and tons of original details, from fixtures and fireplaces to ornate trim. Its updated areas — like the renovated kitchen — bring some modernity without taking away from the home’s charm.
You don’t have to be working with a regal budget to own a historic, Victorian-style home. This 3-bedroom in Waverly Place/Belmont is cozy, with 1,400-plus square feet, and at a budget that isn’t unattainable. And those great historic qualities — 11-foot ceilings, antique fixtures, a wrap-around porch — are just as sweet here as in larger estates.
The scalloped shingles and gingerbread porch detail give a beautiful sense of this 1910 Buena Vista home’s history. Inside, everything’s updated beautifully (in line with a lots of the Germantown area’s recent renovations). Take a look at the sleek and smart kitchen and open living space — truly the best of both worlds.
