Nashville Homes On The Market With Attention Grabbing Fireplaces
by TJ Anderson
I’m searching the MLS today for new Nashville home listings for a few clients, and while their wish lists are guiding me, I’m finding — for obvious reasons, given the temperatures — that the homes with extra-cozy fireplaces are drawing and holding my attention.
Being a Nashville Realtor, this is my seasonal attention disorder: In June, I start obsessing over Nashville home listings with cool pools. Come December, you can’t pry my attention away from a fireplace.
Have a thing for fantastic fireplaces too? Jump into my digital window-shopping here. Below, a few Nashville home listings that caught my eye with noteworthy coziness.
1142 Cahal Ave
Nashville, TN 37206
Quick way to many an East Nashville homebuyer’s heart: historic home with original fireplaces intact. Flip around from the living room to the dining room in this 1899 beauty — both fireplace sides are stunning, picture-perfect captures of an era when exacting home-design detail was the regular order.
1900 4Th Ave N
Nashville, TN 37208
Everything’s fresh and new inside this renovated 1910 Salemtown beauty, including a freshened fireplace that has a classic personality and deftly added design interest. Curling up on the couch there while the cocoa’s being prepared in the open kitchen: sounds like a pretty solid winter night in Nashville to me. The home’s best attribute, though, even if it’s better used in a few months: a roof deck made for seriously sizable parties.
1084 Archer Street
Nashville, TN 37203
A sleek and modern fireplace for a sleek and modern setting. Clean design runs throughout this Gulch View home, so naturally, the warm fireplace comes with a cool aesthetic. Another fireplace on the roof deck feels a little more traditional, but just as beautiful.
1625 S Observatory Dr
Nashville, TN 37215
Big built-ins for a bushel of books, classic shiplap rising up to the vaulted ceiling: This is an upscale living room fireplace design that’ll stand the test of time, and cozy you up right now. Extra points for this expansive and new Green Hills home: There’s another gas fireplace on the massive covered porch.
103 W End Close, #103
Nashville, TN 37205
In the West End area, this high-end townhome — almost 4000 square feet, with 4 beds and 4 1/2 baths — was clearly designed with maximum warmth in mind. There’s lots of exposed brick and chestnutty wood tones, and four fireplaces that each offer different vibes, from classic elegance to woodsy warmth. I really love this sitting area and brick surround — feels like a perfect perch for a cold winter’s night.
2606 Barton Ave
Nashville, TN 37212
All three fireplaces in this renovated 1927 dream home are worth writing home about, but this great room is special, even at the $2.3 million price point. It’s elegant without being cold, farmhouse-y without being kitsch-y, open without feeling empty, and — in the fireplace design, specifically — simple and traditional, but not out of place. If you’re as addicted to home design as I am, there’s lots to love with this listing beyond, from the bold-colored and completely cool kitchen appliances to a master bath that plays with pattern and texture in inspiring ways.
