Hidden in Plain Sight...




Has anyone else ever driven down 5th St. in East Nashville (between Fatherland and Russell) and noticed this huge house and thought to yourself...I wonder what it looks like inside??

This house takes up the space of what could be six houses as seen on the aerial view below.  I had to know what was behind that huge wall surrounding the property!

And guess what?  It just so happens to be for sale!  For the asking price of $1,950,000.00 you can have three living spaces, including the main house, a studio AND a guest house. Oh, and do I need to mention that it is over 9,000 square feet!???  I mean, that's a nice round number, that's a fair price..right??!  Take a look for yourself:



















But I still think the craziest part to all of this is that it is just so unassuming from the outside, I pass this house everyday for over five years and only recently have I been intrigued enough to look into what was behind that huge wall....makes me curious what other gems are hiding in plain site right in my back yard!

Check out more info and photos here.

if i had the money, i would make this the most bad-ass wedding venue in nashville. with that location, you could pop on a rooftop deck somewhere and have a beautiful view of downtown (but also a close-up view of the not so great housing developments).

thank you for sharing this - so pretty!

Wow! And here I was thinking "I'm going to buy Sheryl Crow's house" (http://www.sherylcrowauction.com/) and now you confuse me with another big house.

Wow...do you know the history behind it? I bet that's an interesting story...

Carolyn said...

I didn't find any history on the house yet, other than it was built in 1867, but I wonder how much of that is actually the "original" structure? I could look at old houses for days!!!

I used to live on that block of Russell and was ALWAYS trying to get a peek inside. That little walled garden KILLS me!

Carolyn said...

Delaney, I love that garden area too, it just looks so peaceful!

Wow! It's even more magical than I've pictured when looking at the outside. And much larger too!

Wow! (again)
