Open Houses With Acreage In Nashville And Franklin
by TJ Anderson
Last week, spurred by a beautiful new listing in the historic Werthan Mills lofts, we focused our weekend Open Houses roundup on condos, townhomes and lofts — spaces that don’t come with acreage, but do tend to give you big amenities in locations that put you in close proximity to lots of things to do.
This week, let’s swing in the other direction: outdoor space. If what you’re hunting for is acreage — an expanse of green grass, trees, ample distance between you and your neighbors — there’s lots to see this weekend.
First, the broader picture:
And then, some homes perched on plenty of land:
915 OVERTON LEA RD.
Unique and scenic in highly sought-after Oak Hill, this 4-bed home (with 3 full and 2 half baths) has more than 5,400 square feet of space inside, and more than 2 acres of beautiful leafy property, with manicured landscaping front to back. A favorite part: the large sunroom that lets you enjoy your property in style. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.
6542 MELINDA DR.
Looking for contemporary style to go with all that space? This completely renovated mid-century home, in West Meade Park, sits on almost two acres, and across its 4,000-plus square feet, you have sleek, updated finishes throughout. The stair rails are an eye-grabbing design touch, but make sure you click through and check out the master — the en suite bath is truly breathtaking. Added bonus: a great barn out back. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.
5920 GARRISON RD.
An adorable cottage in Leipers Fork with plenty of space — 4 beds, 3 baths and more than 2,200 square feet — this home has a lot to offer, particularly when you go outside. A full 7 acres plus, with a creek, barn and space for your horses. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.
1605 OTTER CREEK RD.
If what you want is a woodland wonderland, this home in Forest Hills kinda can’t be beat. Particularly right now — fall colors in every direction on its 6-plus acres of property, to be enjoyed outside on the huge wrap-around porch, or inside from walls of windows that bring the beauty of nature right in. A total retreat, and you’re still less than 10 minutes from Green Hills. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.
Hunting for a home with room to roam? We’d love to help you find it — give us a call or send us an email, and let us know what you’re looking for.
