Open Houses Show The Breadth Of Middle Tennessee
by TJ Anderson
One of the things I love about Middle Tennessee is that, within a short distance, we have the best in all kinds of living, from country homes with acreage in Williamson County to city condos with upscale amenities in Germantown. It’s impossible to get bored in our line of work, since we regularly get to introduce clients to all kinds of homes suited for all kinds of lifestyles, all around Middle Tennessee.
For this week’s roundup of weekend Open Houses, I thought I’d spotlight the breadth we enjoy here, and pick out some Open Houses spanning sizes, styles, areas and amenities. If you’re new to the area and not sure what your options are or how to focus a home search, this should give you some insight into Middle Tennessee’s many facets.
For starters, though, let’s take a look at the larger list of Open House options:
Then my picks spanning a wide selection of Middle Tennessee living options, open this weekend:
Historic and homey in 12 South
907 Clayton Ave.
If you’re drawn to historic home design, you have a number of neighborhood options in Nashville and beyond, busy 12 South being one of the favorites. This 1935 tudor shows off why that area is so prized — you’re within walking distance of Sevier Park and close to 12 South’s great shopping and eating options, and the 4-bed, 3-bath home bears timeless charm (tudor curb appeal, stone fireplace) and well-chosen, stylish updates. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.
Woodsy in Brentwood
5304 Camelot Ct.
When you’re surrounded by beautiful mature trees, it’s doubly beneficial to have a home that lets you really appreciate your surroundings. This 5-bed, 4-bath mid-century place in Brentwood makes the most of its acre-plus of woodland beauty (backing up to Radnor Lake property), with walls of windows, a great long second-story porch and a hot tub. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.
Unique in Belle Meade Highlands
200 Brookfield Ave.
There are some really special spaces in this 3-bed, 3 1/2-bath home in one of the most sought-after areas in Nashville, including a study/library that’ll surely draw in the academics among you, and a truly remarkable, Better Homes-featured screened porch with soaring ceilings. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.
Rustic riverside in Inglewood
4026 Brush Hill Rd.
Sunday’s Open House offers the first look at this riverside retreat in leafy Inglewood, which boasts nearly an acre of land overlooking the Cumberland. The 1940 home’s stocked with original details, from a stone fireplace and beamed ceilings to knotty pine and original hardwoods. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.
French-inspired in Franklin
108 Majestic Ln.
Get transported to Provence with this beautiful Westhaven 4-bed, 5 1/2-bath home. After its impeccable first impression, inside, you’re met with gorgeous columns and archways, beautiful brick, a gourmet kitchen, theater room and a perfect courtyard patio that, flanked by climbing ivy, lets you feel like you’re dining al fresco at a French cafe. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.
New Orleans flair in Green Hills
404 Woodmont Hall Pl.
Walk out of beautiful French doors in the master suite onto a private balcony; warm yourself by the fireplace and its eye-grabbing reclaimed mantle; cook and entertain in a big, open kitchen. A truly impressive space in desirable Green Hills. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.
Modern new construction in East Nashville
1600 Cahal Ave.
Contemporary lines, soaring ceilings, a rooftop deck for entertaining and upscale finishes mark this new construction on the East Side. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.
Let me know if any of these Open Houses are catching your attention, or if you’re looking for something different that we can help you with — we’d be honored to help you find your new dream home.
