The weather gurus say it’s going to turn cold again this weekend, but I’m fully in spring mode, and I’m not looking back.

This weekend, I’m planning to spend some time grabbing fresh air with the most recent addition to my family (and to TJ Anderson Homes): Lucy. She joined us last fall, so this’ll be her first spring running around our Nashville yard.

I’m glad we have space to keep our puppy happy, and I know I’m far from alone there — 81 percent of respondents in a new report from the National Association of Realtors said pet-related considerations played a role in their choice of living situation.

They’re family, and their happiness is important. So, with that in mind, I’ve picked out some properties for this week’s Nashville-area Open Houses roundup that have cool fenced-in yards for pups.

First, the bigger picture:


Then my picks:

203 S 15Th St

Nashville, TN 37206


East Nashville is a really dog-friendly part of town — there’s the Shelby Park dog park, lots of cool pet shops and a ton of pet-parent neighbors. So I imagine your pooch would thrive here, with a sizable fenced-in yard close to Five Points in Lockeland Springs. So would you, I’d guess — this is a really stylish, well-done renovation of a 1950 cottage, with spot-on design touches, from big beams and shiplap to killer encaustic tile. I’ll guess this won’t last long, so you probably want to hit the Open House Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m. (or let me know if you want to set up a showing), if a cozy East Side space is on your list.

1311 Mcchesney Ave

Nashville, TN 37216


Newer construction with a decent-sized yard is becoming a challenge to find in Nashville, particularly in fast-growing neighborhoods like East Nashville. Which makes this Inglewood home, built in 2014, a good score, with a sizable, fenced yard (already set up with a patio and fire pit). Inside, you’ll find all the high-end finishes you’d expect from newer construction in the area: hardwoods, granite countertops, stainless appliances. Plus a breezy, open layout and a really great rocking-chair porch. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.

1104 Clifton Ln

Nashville, TN 37204


Another great Nashville neighborhood for pet parents: 12 South, with its walkability, Sevier Park and handful of dog-friendly eateries (many 12 South dog people I know swear by a patio hang at 12 South Taproom & Grill). This fully renovated 1938 home is just south, but walkable to the park, and has a great, flat yard and room for a growing family (with 4 beds, 3 baths and just under 3200 square feet). Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.

4309 Estes Rd

Nashville, TN 37215


At this Green Hills home, not only will your dog(s) have tons of room to play — with about 3/4 of an acre of flat, fenced property — but you’ll get to watch them from a swinging daybed in a farmhouse-cool sunroom, too. The rest of the renovated 1938 Colonial is similarly impressive; it's all updated, with classic finishes and lots of space (4 beds, 2 1/2 baths and more than 2800 square feet). Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.
