Most of what I wrote about here earlier this week focused on gardening — from foodscaping to more traditional landscaping in Nashville. Bottom line: It’s been nice, and I’d like to spend some time outside.

With me there? If you’re househunting in the Nashville area, I’d still recommend doing some inside-kid stuff this weekend, like… looking at houses, and going inside. But I won’t blame you if the thing that catches your eye is a home’s outdoor entertaining space.

For my Open Houses roundup this week, I picked out a few listings all around town that I thought had outdoor space with personality and potential. Hope that, even if they don’t necessarily fit your must-have list, they might give you a little inspiration.

First, the bigger picture:


And then, my picks:

610 B Hume St

Nashville, TN 37208


For city-centric outdoor entertaining, there’s this 3-bed, 3 1/2-bath home in the Salemtown/Germantown area — its two rooftop decks are undeniably cool, one with a beautiful gas fireplace and glass roll-up doors that connect it to a cool flex space, the other with room for al-fresco dining and awesome city views (pictured at the very top of this post). Open Saturday and Sunday, 1 to 3 p.m.

7935 Buffalo Rd

Nashville, TN 37221


It’s not everyone’s aesthetic, but I tend to be a sucker for luxury-cabin style, and this property on the west side of town (near Bellevue) is a great example, all warm wood and stone and cozy, unfussy vibes. With more than 6 acres of property, the outdoor entertaining options are plentiful (the pool, for one, is pretty fantastic). And, as you can see above, the sitting-around-outside views are simply stunning. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.

825 A Clayton Ave

Nashville, TN 37204


They really went all out with renovating this large 1935 home in 12 South — along with the standard updating, they added lots of custom details, from ceilings to tiles to trim, which I appreciate. Far as entertaining goes, the basement space is super cool, like a little Tuscan grotto hangout... I know that's not an outdoor hangout, but it was too cool not to share a photo. The large covered patio has tons of get-together potential too, though. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.

4158 Outer Dr

Nashville, TN 37204


A lot of spot-on design choices in this expansive Green Hills home (4 beds, 4 baths and just shy of 4000 square feet), from the fireplace surround to the great pendant lights in the kitchen. But the backyard is really the clincher — large covered patio, meticulous landscaping, soothing water feature and a seriously adorable shed/playhouse. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.
