In its latest issue, Garden & Gun magazine takes a look at “Ten sweet and soulful Southern hideaways,” including Franklin, praised among their crop of places that “make for an easy weekend away or an ideal place to put down roots.” 

Their list of things to do in Franklin is pretty spot on, from eating at chef Jason McConnell’s excellent Cork and Cow to stopping at the Franklin Antique Mall for exploration. 

The mag’s categorization of Franklin as a place that celebrates the past while looking toward the future is spot on too — one of the things I love about Franklin is its mix of historic charm and forward-looking growth, from circa-1800s homes in Historic Downtown Franklin to the bold eating and drinking options there on Main.

We’ve focused on Franklin in the weekly Open Houses roundup before, but this seemed like a good reason to take another look — there are always fantastic homes waiting in Franklin, and this weekend’s crop of Open Houses underlines that.

First, the wider mix of Open House options:


And here, a few Open Houses in Franklin that really caught my eye:

{mls: 1641886}

1017 Chapel Ct.

Franklin, TN 37069 


Built in 1968 but modernized with a wide-open kitchen and living area, this 4-bed, 2-bath home has lots of well-kept space inside (just shy of 2,200 square feet) and a seriously beautiful, leafy lot. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.

1904 Springcroft Dr.

Franklin, TN 37067 


With almost an acre of property and a spacious and charming deck, you get to really take advantage of Franklin’s green beauty. Inside, this 4-bed, 3 1/2-bath, nearly 3,700-square-foot home is classic and classy, from the master retreat to the light and airy kitchen. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.

{mls: 1615924}

4670 Murfreesboro Rd.

Franklin, TN 37067 


Been hunting for a home with its own martini/cigar bar? Done. Home chefs get a bonus too — the kitchen has a pro-grade Viking range. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.

{mls: 1617991}

1602 Championship Blvd.

Franklin, TN 37064 


Westhaven is a wonderful, family-focused place to live, and this 6-bed, 5-bath home (with more than 5,000 square feet) is a Southern stunner, with two full suites, three covered front porches and absolutely immaculate curb appeal. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.

{mls: 1640854}

4520 Scenic Hills Dr.

Franklin, TN 37064 


The name of this street is no accident — with this 4-bed, 4-bath, 4670-square-foot home, you’re also getting 24 acres of private woodland beauty, perfect for peaceful walks and active fun (ATV trails, all ready). Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.

Falling in love with any of these Franklin homes? Have some different needs, but leaning toward this “sweet and soulful Southern hideaway” in Williamson County? Either way, we’re always here (and glad) to help. Drop me a line and let me know what you’re looking for!
