Sunday being Father’s Day and all, the focus of this week’s Nashville-area Open House roundup seemed pretty obvious: homes with a domain for Dad.

Man cave, workshop, den, fortress of solitude — different dads have different space needs, but most dads agree: Ain’t bad to have a space that no one else messes with.

So I dug around the listings and found a few places in Nashville, Brentwood and Franklin that I think have pretty fantastic Dad domains, of various stripes.

First, the broader picture of what’s happening on the Open House front this weekend:


And then, my picks:

1038 W Greenwood Ave.

Nashville, TN 37206


Lots of options with the finished, walk-out lower level of this renovated East Nashville home — with a large living area and bedroom, you can have an office or an extra guest room, and still have plenty of space for your cave. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.

7017 Mayflower Circle

Brentwood, TN 37027


This large family ranch in Brentwood (almost 4,000 square feet) has lots to offer — updated kitchen with tons of storage, a sweet sunroom, huge deck that lets you enjoy an acre-plus of property (with a spectacular pond feature). The huge finished basement with stone fireplace? Dad’s domain. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.

149 Kenner Ave.

Nashville, TN 37205


Why does the man cave always have to be so… cave-y? In this completely renovated, historic Green Hills home, they’re using the large and sunny bonus space as another living/dining combo… but the possibilities are many. Cinema space where the couch is, pool table where the dining table is, bar on the left…? Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.

4324 Columbia Pike

Franklin, TN 37064


Three words for you: six-car garage. Five more words: additional detached four-car garage. OK, just four more words: bonus area on top. More than five acres in Franklin, too. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.

929 Acklen Ave.

Nashville, TN 37203


For the dads who want a little distance: This restored, circa-1940 home in Waverly Place has a detached two-car garage with a fantastic, finished apartment above it. Sure, you could rent it out or Airbnb it, but hey, a private Dad oasis that's totally apart from the rest of the home might be worth more than the potential rent. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.

Any of these appeal to you? Looking for a different kind of just-for-Dad clubhouse? If you need some help tracking down the perfect place, give me a call!
