Open Houses At Totally Renovated Nashville Homes
by TJ Anderson
Last week, I shared some Open House options that’d be perfect for a homebuyer who was ready for a renovation. This week, let’s go in the other direction — homes that have already been totally renovated, ready to greet you with that fresh-coat-of-paint smell. (Maybe not everyone’s favorite fragrance, but it comes with its pluses.)
Then, my choices:
925 Oneida Ave.
Nashville, TN 37207
This cozy 1947 East Nashville cottage doesn’t blare its mid-century roots anymore, but it does blare sleek and stylish modern living. Looks like everything in the 3-bed, 2-bath home has gotten attention, from the bright pop of color in the front door to the brand-new kitchen and baths. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.
Nashville, TN 37206
Another updated East Nashville property, this one in Eastwood Neighbors, recently named the second-hottest neighborhood of 2016 by Redfin. A totally renovated 1926 bungalow, it’s fresh and inviting, top to bottom, with a bright, white kitchen, shiny hardwoods and a proper East Nashville rockingchair porch. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.
940 Russell St., A
Nashville, TN 37206
A serious reno that didn’t strip out all the history, this condo near 5 Points in East Nashville is tailor-made for buyers who are crazy for exposed brick — there’s lots of it over 2200-plus square feet, and it’s gorgeous. The rooftop deck isn’t too shabby either. Inside, fresh carpeting, fresh paint, granite countertops and shiny wood floors. Doesn’t look like you’ll open the tool box much in this one. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.
3702 Estes Road
Nashville, TN 37215
This 1946, Mediterranean-style home in Green Hills has some pretty stunning curb appeal, no? And the renovated loveliness flows throughout its 2,600 square feet, from the updated, open kitchen to gleaming hardwoods throughout. My favorite touch here: the barn doors in the entryway and the French casement-style windows over the master soaking tub. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.
2905 Westmoreland Dr.
Nashville, TN 37212
Another cute cottage — this time in bustling Hillsboro Village — that’s been updated throughout. You’ll still find charming 1940 details here, from the fireplaces to the phone niche. And, to be fair, calling it a cute cottage is a bit unfair, since its facade belies a huge amount of space: almost 3000 square feet. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.
Any of these renovations making you fall in love? Prefer something you can put your own stamp on? Let me know what you’re looking for — I’d love to help you!
