See Inside This $3,699,000 LUXURY Cabin in Franklin, Tennessee – Nashville’s Luxury Real Estate

Just 15 minutes from Leiper’s Fork Village, through Franklin’s gorgeous rolling hills, atop a hillside drive, you’ll find a hidden estate, your own piece of Tennessee; this is 7501 Ivorybill.

Welcome to Franklin, Tennessee.  People love this community because it is quintessential country life.  It’s got sweet local shops and antique stores, great farm-to-table restaurants, a quaint downtown, plenty of room for horses, and of course, the great outdoors.  You’re 45 minutes from Nashville’s downtown if you want to catch some live music or a football game, but take a look at these grounds.

When you look around this area, it’s hard to imagine that you’re not at a Colorado estate, because that’s exactly how it feels.  The rustle of the leaves under your feet, the groves of these mature trees reaching up to the sky, and the way the air opens up here at the top of the hill.

It is 7 acres of your own personal paradise, and all the great details give it a sense of timelessness.  The warmth of the red oak exterior, the sharp peaks of the standing seam 26 gauge metal roof, and the deep wrap-around porches give a sense that this home has been around for a hundred years.  And I’ll let you in on a little secret…much of it has.

We find that our clients choose Franklin, Tennessee as their home because they value a quiet country lifestyle and the expansiveness of the outdoors and this home has all of that.  It’s such a fun place.  Take, for example, the beautiful bonfire area – a great spot to enjoy friends and family, and have a twilight glass of wine while you play the guitar around the fire.  Or the expansive porches…they seem endless and are a great place for long dinners with your out-of-town guests around a big table while the fireflies twinkle in the background and the kids run through the woods.

This home’s seller and designer is a songwriter who has lived and built in Vancouver and London and studied under acclaimed European designer David Sage.  In London, she salvaged old London warehouses to use in their builds and here she has reclaimed wood from a 150-year-old Montana barn.   You will see so much of her history in the details of this home.

You’re going to start off as you enter in the front room – it’s such a great space to greet your guests as they arrive while the fireplace is crackling and a handcrafted cocktail is being shaken behind the bar.  The story this home tells starts at the entry.  The bar, library, and entry doors are all hand carved in India while the stone floors and fireplace surround were brought from Turkey.   These stairs lead you to three upstairs bedrooms and more great entertaining space.  Also, if you’re a songwriter looking for inspirational writing or recording space, it has that too.

Hand-carved Indian doors open to the spectacular kitchen, dining, and living space.  Such an incredible open kitchen, so warm with the maple island top and textured quartz counters.  The Bertazonni appliances are such a beautiful classic.  We love the exposed area for platters and the appliance garage where you can tuck away the coffee maker after your morning cup of espresso.

The living area is an inspirational grand space; sometimes it can be hard to achieve that sense of coziness, but this house does it so well, probably because of this epic wood-burning fireplace.  Now you do have a gas assist, covered in gorgeous natural stone and even has custom-built storage areas for your firewood.  Maybe you have a large family and you want a retreat where everyone can stay and you can let the kids run around while you sit by the fire.  Or maybe you’re an artist or a songwriter.  Imagine sitting in this space while the sun goes down, your own quiet little piece of heaven. The ceilings are 28 feet high and look out to the west, so imagine stepping onto big covered porch, sitting on the porch swing, and listening to the quiet sounds of nature, reading a book, with the smell of cedar in the air. You have over 1,500 feet of porches surrounding this home all built using cedar deck boards .

The home has a great downstairs guest suite.  Maybe you use it as a nursery or maybe as a beautiful home office.  It’s right off the living room so it lends itself to lots of uses.

When you cross the living room, you will find the primary suite.  The rooms are actually modeled after barn stalls which are 12×12, so the sitting area is one stall and the bedroom is framed from two combined stalls.  We love a home with a thoughtful story!

Step out to the side deck overlooking the woods complete with a 1600-gallon swim spa & hot tub where you can relax in the evening with a glass of wine or turn on the resistance waves and take a swim.

On the second floor you have 3 good-sized guest rooms and a great gathering space where maybe the teens can watch their own movie while you entertain downstairs.  Or maybe it’s where you record the song you wrote on the back porch.  This home has so many possibilities.

Back on the first level is this excellent laundry room.  Now it’s not just a fantastic laundry room, you also have an additional dishwasher and maybe room for a second refrigerator if you want to use it as catering space for entertaining.  It also acts as a mudroom, a great drop zone for when you come in from the garage.  We love that you can make a mess and close it all off from guests.

We want to give a big thanks to Tom Sullivan with Covey Rise Properties.  Tom is the listing agent for this spectacular home.  He grew up in woods like these and properties like this one are his passion.
