Renovated Historic Homes In Nashville With Open Houses This Weekend
by TJ Anderson
Spring being the season of rebirth, I’ve had that sensibility on my mind this week, watching everyone’s landscaping growing green and vibrant again, seeing neighbors start to dig into spring home-refresh projects.
Then, from a similar perspective, I’m thinking about how homes can have seasons — spring being the rebirth that comes with a loving renovation after a long, winter hibernation.
With that in mind, for this week’s Open House roundup, I’ve picked out some properties that are having a 2017 spring: older properties that have been renovated into something new, bright and inviting.
First, the broader options:
Then, some beautifully renovated picks:
1407 Turner St
Old Hickory, TN 37138
I’ve been saying for years that Historic Old Hickory Village is due its time in the Nashville sun. And it’s seemed more and more lately like that time is just about here, as prices are noticeably rising in that tight-knit lakeside community, full of early-1900s homes with New England-y vibes. A great example of why Old Hickory Village is so lovable: this 1928 “Haskell” (one of the handful of home designs in that DuPont-led community). It was renovated about two years ago, and now with that historic charm, it has a bright open kitchen with a huge island, a spacious, inviting sunroom and lots more. Quick walk to the marina, too. Open Saturday and Sunday, 1 to 4 p.m.
702 Boscobel St
Nashville, TN 37206
East Nashville is one of Nashville’s treasure troves of renovated historic homes, and this Historic Edgefield Victorian is a perfect picture of that. It dates back to 1899, and that charm is still front and center, from the original fireplaces to the ebony hardwoods. But modern living’s been lovingly injected to the home in smart ways too. Prime example: an updated but classic, open kitchen with Viking appliances. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.
3622 Central Ave
Nashville, TN 37205
This 1910 property in Historic Richland is easily one of the most impeccably done historic renovations I’ve seen in Nashville this year. The updates bring a perfect marriage between 2017 style and historic aesthetics, pulling in the fresh and bright influences of now — open layout, crisp white/sharp contrast color palette, copper and bronze — and plays up original attributes too, from stone walls to elegant trim. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.
