Weekend Open Houses And Fall Nights By The Fire
by TJ Anderson
The cooler weather we’re having brings one thing to mind: fall nights by the fire with friends, family, maybe s’mores, maybe a cup of something warm or glass of something warming.
So as I was looking through the weekend’s Open House offerings in Middle Tennessee, I thought we might pick out some homes that offer perfect opportunities for nights by the fire, inside or outside.
First, the big Open Houses picture:
And here, some homes that give me warm and cozy feelings:
816 GWYNN DR
An adorable stone cottage just north of all the things to do (and eat) in East Nashville, with a living space that just beams cozy. The cute fireplace is key, though the snuggly sectional doesn’t hurt either. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.
1411 14TH AVE S
Looking for something a little more sleek for your wine-by-the-fire nights? This new construction in Belmont-Edgehill offers sophisticated, open design throughout, including the cool, contemporary fireplace. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.
1712 CHAMPIONSHIP BLVD
Westhaven is one of the most charming, family-friendly corners of already charming and family-friendly Franklin, and this 4-bed, 4-bath home is perfect for family togetherness, with a gourmet kitchen open to a living area with a welcoming fireplace and built-ins for must-have growing-family storage. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.
4104 KATHERINES BR
The French cottage feel of this large Arrington home is as unique as it is appealing, from the exterior shutters to the cute kids’ bedroom loft and the weathered-look kitchen cabinets (a cool complement to top-of-the-line appliances). My favorite part: the outdoor entertaining area. That fireplace is beyond perfect for the crisp fall nights we have coming. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.
Warm feelings toward any of these homes? Have something else in mind? Let us know — we’d love to help!
