Nashville Homes For Sale That Look Like A Million Bucks
by TJ Anderson
Almost exactly a year ago, I wrote a post titled “What a million-dollar home in Nashville looks like,” and found a few beautiful properties on the market to share. Take a spin through it if you get a second.
What a difference a year makes in Nashville, huh?
So, a cool million doesn’t go quite as far in Music City on the real-estate front as it once did. Small consolation: Even with our rising cost of living, at least we’re not quite in Toronto’s situation, where even fixer-uppers are going for double or triple the asking price.
And to be fair, you can still buy an absolutely beautiful home in Nashville with a million-dollar budget. It’ll just probably be a little smaller, a little lighter on amenities and/or a little further from the top-pick neighborhoods than it would’ve been a year ago.
To put some details behind that, I’m focusing this week’s Open House roundup on properties around Nashville that hover in the million-dollar range.
First, the broader options:
Then, a few million-dollar babies:
6301 Jocelyn Hollow Rd
Nashville, TN 37205
If you love mid-century home design, you have to take a look at this 1959 showpiece in West Meade. It’s been totally upgraded, but with the period’s aesthetics in mind, and the choices are absolutely spot-on, top to bottom. Tons of space here, too, with more than 3600 square feet, 5 beds and 4 1/2 baths. Open Sunday, 1 to 5 p.m.
714 Hillwood Blvd
Nashville, TN 37205
At this price point, it’s still possible to find an extra-large home, even one with more than an acre of property and a crystal-blue salt-water pool like this. Maybe not in, say, Green Hills or 12 South. But this almost 8000-square-foot home in Hillwood Estates is still only about seven miles from downtown, and it’s well-kept, with traditional decor and a gorgeous green landscape. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.
3624 Westbrook Ave
Nashville, TN 37205
You a songwriter? Word is this 3-bed, 3-bath home in the Richland/West End area inspired five Grammy Awards. Not bad. Its living room’s tongue-and-groove vaulted ceilings and stone fireplace definitely inspire cozy vibes, as do the farmhouse-y kitchen and stone feature walls. Bonus that can’t be missed: fully decked-out media room. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.
3513 Ruland Pl
Nashville, TN 37215
For Nashville homebuyers focused on new construction, here’s an example of what you can expect, if you’re looking to be fairly close to downtown. This brand new 5-bed, 4-bath property is close to Green Hills and West End, has all manner of upscale finishes — marble, hand-finished hardwoods — and charming, Tudor-y architecture. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.
