Waterfront Living In Middle Tennessee
Yes, we live in a landlocked state, but lovers of waterfront living aren’t exactly out of luck in Middle Tennessee. From riverside views in East Nashville to lakeside living in Old Hickory, there’s a lot to love around here, even if we don’t exactly have access to salt spray and crashing waves. Been aching to get out on your boat or drawn to looking out your bedroom window onto a lazy river? I’m not about to blame you. So here are eight local homes with waterfront views and access that caught my eye, located all across our area and across a broad mix of budgets:
3908 Moss Rose Drive
1112 Safety Harbor Cv
Old Hickory, TN
For your lakefront needs, this Old Hickory home offers a deep-cove boat slip and a wall of glass in the great room that opens up onto a balcony overlooking the water. Plus a pool with its own waterfall. The rest of the space is all about living resort-style, from its six-seat theater to a fitness room and dry sauna.
106 Jackson Lake Dr.
2211 Riverview Dr.
In Murfreesboro, you can admire the Stones River from three patios designed to make you feel like you’ve been transported to a state park. And the park-retreat feel carries inside to the near 5,000-square feet of home, too, with three fireplaces, lots of entertaining and walls of windows that look out onto tall trees.
8251 River Road Pike
Looking for land? This one has 25 acres on the Cumberland in Whites Bend, with a well-appointed main estate for everyday living and a rustic cabin on the grounds for getting back to nature (with a pretty ideal commute).
124 Two Rivers Ct.
Here’s a woodland retreat right over the river from East Nashville, in Sunny Acres. More than three acres of privacy (still barely a 15-minute drive from downtown), lots of space (more than 3,600 square feet) and a big deck that feels like a treehouse overlooking the Cumberland.
211 Ryburn Dr.
Old Hickory, TN
Waterfront living, even in Middle Tennessee, tends to come with a price tag, but even if your budget isn’t in the seven-figure range, you can find a lakeside gem like this one. A cozy three-bedroom home with a cool pool overlooking Old Hickory Lake, and it’s listed for under $200,000.
4212 Two Rivers Ln.
If total waterfront luxury is bold-printed on your must-have list, this Franklin estate, backing up on the West Harpeth River, is well worth a look. The interior’s all about architectural detail — from ornate ceilings to stone tiles and stately staircases — and the exterior gives you the chance to feel like you’re in your own world, with 13 acres of leafy, level land.
