Introducing a family’s modern lifestyle into an outdated home entails realizing the home’s potential and carefully balancing old and new.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 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.
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.
