This is shaping up to be a calm, breezy weekend in Nashville — perfect for porch hangs with a seasonal Nashville-made craft beer.

Don’t have the perfect Nashville-area porch yet? Maybe I can help. For this week’s Open House roundup, a few Middle Tennessee homes on the market now with swing/rockingchair-ready spaces.

First, broader options:


Then, a few picks:

5625 Chestnutwood Trl

Hermitage, TN 37076


For Nashville househunters with a tighter budget, Hermitage can be a worthwhile option — it’s a quick shot to 40, so an easy commute and an easy trip to the airport, and per-square-foot asking prices tend to be much lower, even than nearby Donelson. This 2001 home’s a good example: more than 2000 well-kept square feet and a sizable level lot, with some nice family-home details, like the big wrap-around front porch. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.

1708 C 4Th Ave N

Nashville, TN 37208


If you’re drawn to neighborly vibes, this cottage community in Salemtown might catch your eye, with huge double-porches facing charming shared green space, inviting interaction. This nearly-new property has 3 beds, 3 baths and a location that’s steps from excellent Nashville dining, including City House and 312 Pizza Company. Open Saturday, noon to 2 p.m.

1604 5Th Ave N

Nashville, TN 37208


Kind of a midpoint between a Germantown condo single-family property: an attached 2005 build with just enough (but not too much) fenced yard, 3 beds, 3 baths and a picture-perfect front porch to look out on one of Nashville’s most charming neighborhoods. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.

1116 Boscobel St

Nashville, TN 37206


If you love to cook, this kitchen’s worth a long look. If you love East Nashville dining, this location has you right in East End, close to everything. IF you love hanging out outside, you’re set front and back, with that cool front porch and a big covered back patio. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.

9516 Wexcroft Dr

Brentwood, TN 37027


This Brentwood beauty is clean and elegant throughout its 4200-plus square feet, something that isn’t terribly unusual in Williamson County. But the architecture on this one isn’t so common, that central turret (above a large covered porch) bringing a breezy, seaside vibe. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.

{mls: 1873092}

703 Stonewater Blvd

Franklin, TN 37064


Family-friendly Westhaven in Franklin is the kind of neighborhood that invites quiet rockingchair Sunday mornings with coffee and the paper — this 4-bed, 4-bath, 4500-square-foot home in particular, with its spacious stacked porches. Killer backyard entertaining space, too. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.

Whether a porch is your thing or you’re more of an indoor kid, I’d love to help you find the right home in Nashville. Call or email TJ Anderson Homes, and tell me about your wish list.
