1112 Gartland Avenue, Nashville, TN 37206



So let's just say you were looking for an immaculate East Nashville bungalow to move into, and let's say that you didn't want to fool with any house that requires even a smidgen of renovation ...

... I would say your search is over.

From front to back, 1112 Gartland Avenue is 2,500 square feet of perfection. Located in the heart of historic Lockeland Springs, I double dog dare you to find a Nashville bungalow on the market that outshine this one. Not to mention that the buyer will get a bonus in that an equally lovely detached studio is situated in the fenced backyard, ready to be made useful by a musician, artist or overnight guest.

Beautifully appointed with muted paint colors, cedar shake siding, and a huge front porch, the home brings the outdoors in with rows of windows in both the large living and dining rooms. The kitchen is no less bright. Outfitted with white cabinetry, an enormous kitchen island, and custom tile work, the kitchen is perhaps most notable for its oversized butler's pantry, which is more like a bonus room than a pantry.

Hardwood floors are found throughout both the 400-square-foot studio and the home, which was built in 1920 and contains three bedrooms, including a master bed and bath with a clawfoot tub, double vanity, and walk-in shower.  There's also an upstairs sitting area and a garage.

And no East Nashvillian could ask for a better location, as this house is located just a block from Calypso Café, East Library, Pizze Real, and the 5 Spot and two blocks to Five Points proper.
