5 Nashville Homes That Would Make Santa And Mrs Claus Proud
by TJ Anderson
Nashville continues to be a steady relocation/second-home draw for successful people, and I’ve had my share of well-known clients. But sadly, there’s no indication that old Saint Nick and his good lady wife have any intention of calling me to find them a new warm-weather abode here in Music City. Bummer.
Even so, just in case, I’m keeping a short list of homes on the market around town now, right around Christmas, that have caught my eye as Claus-appropriate. For, I think, easy-to-see reasons.
Scroll through to see some Nashville homes for sale that feel a little holly, a little jolly to me.
5211 Kentucky Ave
Nashville, TN 37209
This historic Craftsman in The Nations feels so wonderfully red-and-green festive, from the front door to the huge backyard deck (which has lots of room to entertain — throw an outdoor heater there, and you’re ready for a Christmas party). If private woodland nooks are your thing, check out the well-landscaped yard; it’s so pretty and placid, I could see spending hours out there, making a list, checking it twice. The coolest thing about this one, too, is the dining room — with its red walls and white trim and chair rail, Santa’s suit is nothing short of Christmas camo here.

Nashville, TN 37215
If the green door and trim on this well-kept red-brick home don’t get you in the spirit, the evergreen-toned dining room overlooking a deep red fireplace statement wall might. It’s super close to Green Hills (and the Mall at Green Hills), too — a convenient thing for the Jolly Old Elf who realizes he’s short a stocking-stuffer on Christmas Eve.
213 South 13th St
Nashville, TN 37206
A newer build in East Nashville that beautifully mimics the aesthetic of the neighborhood’s historic homes, this 3-bed, 2 1/2 bath place is festive as can be. Not sure if the little red wagon/car in the large, fenced backyard conveys, but it sure does evoke Christmas-morning zeal. Seems way too perfect, too, that the place is flanked by large, lush evergreens that are just screaming for some twinkly lights.
3621 Westbrook Ave
Nashville, TN 37205
Inside, this well-renovated 1930 bungalow in Historic Richland is pretty muted in terms of color, aside of the huge, deep-red wine room, which is, incidentally, fa-la-la-fabulous. On the exterior, the Santa’s-sleigh-red window trim brings such an eye-grabbing pop against the soft green siding. Yuletide charm is off the charts.
3817 Central Ave
Nashville, TN 37205
Another Historic Richland/West End home, this 1920 Craftsman has lots to offer Moms and Dads, including a stunning kitchen, six bedrooms, 4 full and 2 half baths and a spacious master suite (with a serious closet). Not to mention a pretty perfect stone fireplace for hanging stockings on. But it also has something that, I can say from experience, dances in the heads of little boys (and I’d guess girls) a lot more than sugarplums: an awesome treehouse.
