Introducing a family’s modern lifestyle into an outdated home entails realizing the home’s potential and carefully balancing old and new. This once-ranch-style home had remained untouched since it was built in the 1960s, but new homeowners recognized the possibilities to repurpose the existing 4,200 square feet and nearly triple its size. Boasting an architectural style more akin to an English manor than a ranch home, the current design came to life in the mid-2000s when the homeowners added two stories and more than 7,000 square feet to the floorplan. Today, the home at 5028 Franklin Pike illustrates old Nashville’s charming, approachable vibe and the modern sensibility of the new Music City that is evident in everything from its retail scene to its homes and interiors.

The home at 5028 Franklin Pike presents a buying opportunity unlike anything else on the market. With 11,555 square feet, seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms, and swoon-worthy design, this property has so much to offer.

The residence features a grand exterior and intentional landscaping that smartly partitions the property from Franklin Road. Inside, elegant yet casual interiors give nod to California design and make for comfortable family living. Every room within the home has its own personality and unique details, yet each plays a role in the bigger picture to create a captivating retreat anyone would be lucky to move into.

The home is laid out in three levels and features eight bedrooms and large entertaining spaces. With 10-foot ceilings, 8-foot doors and beautiful cherry flooring, fine design can be found throughout. In addition to a spacious home, the property also features an outdoor summer kitchen and pool area as well as a separate guest cottage and livable front and back yard. And the location is convenient to everything. Take hikes around Radnor Lake, or enjoy shopping and dining in Brentwood and Green Hills — the best of everything is just a short distance away.

Take your time to register the many design details throughout the home. Here, a dark ceiling surprisingly makes the entryway feel larger while custom moldings and a stately chandelier establish a sophisticated elegance.

A home office has become an essential space for homeowners, especially considering how many of us spend our days working from home. Situated at the front of the house, this office is open and filled with natural light, and it beats working from the kitchen table.

Step inside the sitting room, where a fireplace and playful colorways liven the otherwise neutral design. Follow the cherry flooring from the sitting room into the dining room that opens to the kitchen and primary living space.

The ceiling medallion and crown molding are a nod to a more traditional style, but the furnishings keep this dining room fresh and current.

Although the central living space is an open-concept design, the layout allows you to enjoy the separate areas. And each of the French doors along the far wall opens to create a connection between indoor and outdoor living.

The dark wood cabinets and character-filled countertops make the kitchen feel warm and inviting.

The living space and wet bar are the entertaining centers of the home, and neither is far from the indoor and outdoor kitchens and dining areas.

This well-appointed bedroom with its fireplace, television and lounge area, invites rest and relaxation.

Again, contemporary meets traditional. The master bathroom simultaneously boasts rich materials that lean traditional and finishes and art that feel more modern. The bathroom leads into a large walk-in closet.

It is hard to choose a favorite when every bedroom is so beautiful, spacious and bright.

There are five fireplaces found throughout the home.

Currently designed as a workout room, this upstairs space can be used in any number of ways.

Whether utilized for kids’ crafts or remote learning, this room is dedicated to the little ones.

In addition to the main-floor living space, the home features an upstairs lounge area to kick back and watch television.

Additional noteworthy features found throughout the home include an elevator, third-floor bonus space, fitness room, in-home theater, outdoor fireplace and pool. Located on nearly two acres, the backyard design invites you to take advantage of the natural surroundings. An extended covered patio stretches between the central living space and pool, and an outdoor kitchen (complete with a Green Egg) is a favorite feature of the design.

Lastly, worthy of mention is the well-appointed guest house, designed to invite loved ones for a visit while providing ample space to call their own. The guest home features a complete kitchen, living area, bedroom with sitting area and full bath.

Sit down and stay awhile!

A stacked stone fireplace keeps you warm during the chilly months and is even used during the summer for night swimmers looking to dry off.

It is hard to imagine ever wanting to go inside.

Despite its central and convenient location, the property feels private and intimate, thanks to thoughtful landscaping.

There is not a bad view of this home!
