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.
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.

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.

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.

"T.J. is a top notch sales and service professional. I have bought homes in multiple states and dealt with a dozen real-tors and T.J. is the best of the bunch. I need three things from my real-tor: local knowledge, responsiveness, and honesty. T.J. is off the chart in all three areas. I follow his real-estate blog and regularly bounce market questions off of him. T.J. responded quickly and professionally to each and every question my wife and I sent his way. Ultimately T.J. talked my wife and I out of a not so good deal and advised us to wait a while before purchasing a second home (due to our situation not the market). I would not hesitate to recommend T.J. to anyone interested in Nashville real-estate. Form a first time home buyer to someone just new to the area you can't go wrong with this guy!"
