2146 Osburn Rd
Arrington, TN 37014
One of our latest featured listings, 2146 Osburn Road, is located in Arrington, a 30-minute drive or so south of our home in Nashville. The home itself is a classic beauty, with more than 2,600 square feet of living space, and an acre-plus of beautiful, placid, lakeside property. We’re particularly partial to the cozy stone fireplace in the open living area, but the whole home has our hearts.
If you haven’t spent a lot of time in Arrington, it has a lot to love, too, and we’re happy to rattle off reasons. Here are just a few reasons why we’re big Arrington fans:
Middle Tennessee hasn’t traditionally been known as a wine hotspot, but that’s changing, courtesy of winemaker Kip Summers, entrepreneur John Russell and country star Kix Brooks, who launched Arrington Vineyards together in 2007. The wines are wonderful, and the vineyards are breathtaking — head by for a tasting, bring a picnic and sit outside, or head by weekends April through November for free al fresco jazz during their Music in the Vines series. It’s one of the best days out in Middle Tennessee, and it’s right there in Arrington.
Like many teenagers, Mike Freeman had high-school dreams of someday owning his own castle. Unlike many teenagers, Freeman followed through, starting work on Castle Gwynn in 1980. Today, it’s a 12th-century Welsh border castle come to life in Arrington, Tennessee (and Mike’s home). In May, it becomes the host of the Tennessee Renaissance Festival, transporting attendees back to 16th Century England.
Feel drawn to getting in the saddle? Head to Arrington’s Peachtree Farms, a training stable that offers lessons, camps, clinics and lots more. And whether you’re brand new or a seasoned rider, you’re welcome.
Access to Williamson County schools
If you have kids, you’re doubtlessly considering your school options as you’re considering your new-home options. And people flock to Williamson County from all over, often just because of the reputation of Williamson County schools. A few figures that reflect that rep: For the 2014-15 school year, the Tennessee Department of Education named 21 Williamson County schools as “Reward Schools” (that represents the top 5 percent of schools in the state for performance). Top state test scores and high graduation rates are among the other brag-worthy tidbits that further explain why Williamson school access is prized.
In Arrington, you’re spoiled with nature and space and tranquility, but you’re not cut off from the world — the Cool Springs Galleria is only about 10 miles away, and you can do some serious damage there, from Ann Taylor to Williams-Sonoma.
When it’s completed, the in-the-works Hideaway at Arrington development will encompass 742 acres, with a luxury 15,000-square-foot clubhouse, fitness center and spa, coffee house and lots more. The community’s already anchored, however, by a world-class, 170-acre golf course designed by von Hagge, Smelek and Baril (if you’re not a golfer, here’s the skinny: They’re a world-renowned golf course design team, and that name alone’ll draw folks to want to play there).
Nashville tends to get a lot of the restaurant press of late (Town & Country magazine is the latest to comment on our “red-hot food scene”), but Franklin’s been on a steady rise for a good while now. If you want remarkable food, there’s no need to head into Nashville — GRAY’s on Main (above) and the Red Pony are just a few of the top-notch options in downtown Franklin. (The Downtown Franklin website has a list of many, many more.) And in Arrington, you’re only about 10 miles away.
