A Church Turned Custom Home And Recording Studio
Featured Listing of the Week
by TJ Anderson
7544 Old Harding Pike
Nashville, TN 37221
Built in 1910, the nearly 7,000-square-foot home was originally a church — a fact that’s pretty clear from first look, given the dynamic spire and beautiful arched front door. Today, it’s a stylish and totally renovated custom home replete with professional-quality recording studio and small urban farm plot.
It’s easy to go too far when you’re renovating a historic building — especially one this old, and one that wasn’t initially designed explicitly for living. But the updates and design here in this 5-bed, 4-bath home are smart and subtle.
The kitchen is a great indicator — you can still feel the history in the ample space, but it’s ready for modern living (just look at that state-of-the-art range).
The main living area is a stunner, too, with library built-ins, a stately fireplace and high ceilings with a loft overlooking the space. As so many of us have gotten more passionate about eating healthy and eating local, the gardening setup is a big selling point too — you can’t get more local than fruits and vegetables grown in your own urban farm. And the one-acre property is a great size for folks who want enough space for privacy but not so much land that upkeep is overwhelming.
I can’t imagine something more perfect for a songwriter or musician looking for their own private sanctuary, with space to work, room for a growing family and truly unique historic charm.
Let me know if you’d like to take a look at this property — I know this one’s an absolute dream home for someone in Middle Tennessee.
For the music-makers looking for a space with a slightly more modest budget, here are a few other homes with recording studios already in place, on the market now:
502 Rural Hill Rd.
Nashville, TN 37217
Great more-than-a-starter home in Edge-O-Lake Estates with 3 beds, 2 baths and a basement recording space that’s sizable and comfortable.
1105 Cedarview Ln.
Franklin, TN 37067
Beautiful recording space (in a charming Franklin family home) with exposed beams and enough room for a full band.
3045 Coral Bell Ln.
Franklin, TN 37067
A huge Franklin home (nearly 5,500 square feet with 6 beds and 4 1/2 baths) that’s set up for recording in style with an industrial-cool studio space, and entertaining in style with a big game room, too.
If any of these homes strike a chord (pun unintended), let me know — I’d love to show them to you.
