Historic Nashville Homes Hosting Open Houses This Weekend
by TJ Anderson
For last week’s Open House roundup, I focused on new construction all across Nashville, inspired by the brand-new Woodbine build we’d just listed. (More about that one, 400 McIver Street, here.)
That listing wasn’t our only piece of Nashville real-estate pride for the week: The historic Inglewood tudor that includes the stunning vintage-cool kitchen pictured above also sold, and passed into the loving hands of its new owners. We really loved that home, and its vintage cabinets and classic subway tile. Homebuyers were swooning, and so was our team.
In honor of that fantastic and fun East Nashville home, this week’s Open House roundup is going to focus on historic homes across Middle Tennessee that’ll fire up your sense of nostalgia.
First, the broader options:
Then, some historic homes hosting Open Houses this weekend:
5015 John Hager Rd
Hermitage, TN 37076
I always keep my eyes peeled for cool options for first-time homebuyers, and this 1916 property in Hermitage caught my eye. Some stylish updates in here (the large kitchen in particular), and a really fun master with wood-cladded ceilings. Could be a really cool starter home for buyers with a $200K budget range. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.
1190 E Main St
Gallatin, TN 37066
This restored 1922 property in Gallatin’s Historic District absolutely stops my heart. That porch! That fireplace! That sunroom! The clawfoot tub in the master! Smart details in the renovated kitchen, too — it’s set up with modern conveniences/openness, but totally in line with the home’s history in its aesthetic. Full acre of property, too. Open Saturday, 1 to 3 p.m.
1814 Long Ave
Nashville, TN 37206
Buyers looking for a historic East Nashville home that already has all the updating/renovations in place might want to take a peek at this one — the 1930 property had a full (and very tasteful) renovation in 2013. They did a particularly good job of bringing in the clean and fresh, light and bright aesthetic buyers are drawn to without making the home feel antiseptic. Still lots of homey details here. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.
907 N. 12th St.
Nashville, TN 37206
East Nashville’s Lockeland Springs is always good for a historic charmer. Still, when you find a late-1800s home like this — in beautiful shape, walking distance from Five Points, with wood-burning fireplaces and a large backyard — it’s hard not to get a little woozy with old-house love. The original carriage house in the back is a great bonus, too. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.
163 Kenner Ave
Nashville, TN 37205
Hello, Tudor. This beautiful 1925 brick home has tons of the details Tudor-lovers yearn for — arched door, diamond-paned windows, etc. You’ll find nicely done updates in key areas, too, including a beautiful, renovated kitchen and custom tile showers. The home's in a really great West-side location as well, close to Green Hills and Sylvan Park. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.
