Favorite Home Of The Week A Wedgewood Houston Haven Under 300K

This 1,559-square-foot new construction home is smack dab in the middle of what is arguably Nashville’s hottest neighborhood, Wedgewood Houston. Why such a popular nabe? Mostly because it's insanely convenient. A stone's throw from the Tennessee State Fairgrounds, Wedgewood Houston is just one-and-a-half miles to Belmont or the Gulch, and it’s still considerably more affordable than fellow Nashville neighborhood hotspots Lockeland Springs, 12South, and Sylvan Park. It's also become a popular place for artists. Exhibit A: Ground zero for Wedgewood Houston is Fort Houston, an old brick factory that houses a full-scale wood shop, print shop, bike shop, photography studio, and miscellaneous work and desk space. Exhibit B: The most recent edition of Porter Flea was held in the Wedgewood Houston neighborhood.   This handsome home, which includes three bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms, is the work of award-winning designer Lynn Taylor. Taylor has become pretty famous around Music City since 2000--the year she launched her company Taylor Made Plans, which focuses on historic design and preservation and offers up new construction plans that blend almost seamlessly with historic homes on the block.    Who knows how long you'll still be able to find quality homes in Wedgewood Houston that are under 300K? This one is a great example of the value still available there, and the builder used old elements like reclaimed doors and an old fireplace mantel. We are also loving the window seat in one of the bedrooms, the sleek white cabinets and granite countertops, and major cheerful curb appeal--thanks to the aqua front door and the window box. Please let me know if you'd like to see 540c Moore Avenue in person; I suspect it won't stay on the market long.
