Edgefield Luxury: An East Nashville Mansion Built in 1867!
by T.J. Anderson
209 S. 5th Nashville, TN 37206
This jaw-dropping estate is certainly one of the most opulent homes in East Nashville, as well as one of the oldest. Built in 1867 in the Italianate style of architecture, this home has been listed for sale on and off for two-and-a-half years now, so that if its age and stature didn't make it interesting enough, remaining on the market has made it even more curious to East Nashvillians.
Spanning more than 9,000 square feet, this Historic Edgefield property includes a guest house and a studio and sits on just over an acre of land. Its landscaping, which includes a gorgeous walled garden, features hundreds of exotic trees, hundreds of floral varieties, and two large Koi Ponds. And then there's the pool. The magnificent Roman pool! And the glass-ceilinged atrium that borders it.
True to its era, the 9-bedroom, five-bathroom home includes lots of original details--imposing columns and intricate mouldings, archways and one amazing staircase--all taking you to another time and place. 209 South 5th Street has been immaculately renovated, however, and is gated with cameras. Some claim it is even home to the best view of the Nashville skyline. Want to see for yourself?
P.S.: The best pictures of this house can be found here.
