Every year around this time I start getting impatient for fall — that wonderfully less-sweaty time when we get to enjoy our fireplaces and watch the Tennessee foliage turn Technicolor. (A while back, I rounded up the best places in/near Nashville to see fall foliage, if you need some help there.)

So, as I’m looking through Nashville-area home listings this week, my eye is on the future: which homes have a piece of property that, in a month or two, will pop in reds and oranges and make me feel like a Pumpkin Spice Latte come to life.

Naturally, this week’s Open House roundup is focused on those.

First, the wider picture of Open Houses in the Nashville area:


Then, a few picks that I’m confident will deliver for fall color hunters, just a little while down the line.

1038 W Greenwood Ave

Nashville, TN 37206


This 1921 East Nashville home looks like it’s in great shape — the historic personality is intact, and everything looks clean and fresh. With a renovated kitchen, it’d be an even bigger draw in a neighborhood that hasn’t been struggling to draw. Maybe the biggest bonus here, though: Finding a sizable, treed backyard in East Nashville is getting harder and harder, so this one, with lots of mature-tree privacy and a great deck, is a rare score. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.

1507 Forest Garden Drive

Brentwood, TN 37027


The address says it all, no? This is actually a modest plot of land for the size of the home — a little over a quarter acre, with a 4,388-square-foot house — but the lovely, leafy surroundings make it feel larger, and more private. The covered patio and deck make a perfect perch for enjoying it, too. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.

6344 Wildwood Dr

Brentwood, TN 37027


On more than an acre in Brentwood, this huge, new-construction family home feels like it was tucked into a forest, with a tree canopy that offers shade and privacy and yes, foliage. Inside, every inch of its nearly 5000 square feet beams elegance, with high-end finishes and — heads up if you’re into lighting — quite a few glamorous, glittering chandeliers. Open Saturday and Sunday 1 to 5 p.m.

201 Rolling Fork Ct

Nashville, TN 37205


This split level in West Meade has to be my favorite of the bunch, on the potential foliage front. More than 4 1/2 acres of private, wooded property surround the 3000-plus-square-foot home, and the staggering number of windows means you’re getting to enjoy that view from all angles. In the beautiful outdoor living space, there’s a waterfall, too. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.

1135 Granny White Ct

Nashville, TN 37204


If you’re really lucky, you can find a property in Green Hills that lives up to the neighborhood’s name. Less common, lately, with new construction, since a lot of mature trees are taken down to make room for multiple homes. But this spacious new build kept the green. At almost 5000 square feet, the home still doesn’t totally dominate the near half-acre plot — there’s a nice yard, a covered deck and plenty of leaves to gaze at. Inside, you’re not wanting for a single detail, from the high-end kitchen to the statement lighting to a seriously serene master suite. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.

Looking for a property that offers leafy privacy? More into something with less raking involved? If I can help you find the home that hits your wish list, let me know.
