This artfully restored and beautifully updated historic farmhouse is a rare find! Built in 1835, the Antebellum home was part of a 1500-acre farm. In the early 1950’s the second owner of the property completely restored and updated the home. And in 2003, the current owner undertook an extensive renovation while preserving the home’s origins.


Today, this lovely farmhouse welcomes you with historic warmth and quality as you approach the two-story covered porch. Inside, spacious light-filled rooms flow seamlessly from formal to family living and entertaining areas. And beautiful wide-plank floors and tall ceilings accentuate the period elegance of the home.


The kitchen is expansive and offers every modern convenience with professional appliances and custom-made cabinetry. An adjoining screened porch and huge family/media room allow for seamless indoor-outdoor entertaining.


On the second level, you’ll find a beautiful primary suite as well as two additional bedrooms and bath. Each window offers tranquil views of the grounds and treetops.


Solar panels blend in on the roof of the garage and back of the house and generate more than $1,600/year in electricity.


Situated on a large corner lot in a quiet, upscale neighborhood, this magnificent home offers a peaceful respite, yet is just 15 minutes from Downtown and Cool Springs.
