This goes without saying — we’re Realtors in Nashville — but we spend an inordinate amount of time poring over the Middle Tennessee MLS, trying to find properties to suit our buyers needs, wants and tastes. We sometimes see MLS numbers scrolling like a ticker while we’re trying to sleep.
Luckily, we’re all passionate about homes and real estate, so this stuff is fun, and rewarding. Need someone who can find that perfect needle in a Nashville haystack? We’re on it, and glad to be on it.
If you spend hours every day scrolling through home listings, you’d think it’d be hard for particular homes to stick out. And yet, in Nashville, we’re so flush with unique architecture and design-inclined homeowners who make places pop, we find homes for sale in the area every single day that we have to show each other, even if they don’t fit any of our buyers.
Looking for a unique property in Nashville? You might find this post helpful — here are just a few of the listings that caught our attention this week (and that we’d sure love to show a buyer).
We’ve told dozens of Nashville homebuyers this, and we’re happy to tell our blog again and again, too: Old Hickory Village is such a hidden Nashville-area gem. The sweet, Mayberry-like community is right on the lake, and full of historic homes that are bursting with charm, like this renovated 1928 property, with cool exposed brick in the updated kitchen, shiplap, barn doors and other style-forward details and tons of sun.
It’s rare for new construction to go all out with Victorian-style details, ornate exterior trim especially. In Germantown, it’s a little more common, but still stands out, and beautifully. This 3-bed, 3-bath home, built in 2016, has all the standard high-end finishes you’d expect from new construction. But the thick-of-things location, plus that facade — and a roof deck that’s quite literally awesome — make the place extra special.
You might be thinking, “At this price point, any listing should make my jaw drop.” But you also might be surprised — $1.6 million doesn’t go quite as far in Nashville as it once did. To be fair, it still goes plenty far, especially in the right place. This Hillwood/West Meade home is apparently that right place — brand-new construction, it has the kind of extra-mile details that put it in a special league, even in this price point, from ultra-stylish tile choices and wallpaper to a covered deck with fireplace that we’d love to spend our whole fall with.
It’s not always expansive homes with luxury details that get our attention — sometimes smaller, sweet starter homes with picket fences do the trick. This 1938 cottage in Sylvan Park has great built-ins and original doors, a super-cute fireplace and great wood floors. A young family could have a seriously adorable first Christmas in this place.
Hello, midcentury modern porch of our dreams. This 1966 ranch in Belmont/12 South has a mix of original details (pink ’60s tile!) and tasteful updates, and the location, a few blocks off 8th, is pretty unstoppable for vintage furniture shopping, too.
