Taking inspiration from Cape Cod architecture, this newly listed brick home on Cantrell Avenue features charming blue shutters and delivers a winning first impression. But the exterior’s impressive design is just the start. This two-story house has been most recently inhabited by an interior designer with a discerning eye. Built in approximately 1930, the 4,524-square-foot home incorporates contemporary touches with original architectural and design components, all of which create a perfectly balanced space.
As far as location goes, it’s hard to beat the convenience and tranquility that this home offers. In the middle of Green Hills, this house is situated on a dead-end street that is just two blocks away from the neighborhood park. It also offers quick access to Green Hills, Belle Meade and downtown Nashville, and it’s just minutes from I-440. Additionally, the mature trees date back almost 100 years and include one of the largest magnolia trees in all of Nashville.
Take a peek inside to see what this home has to offer.
The front door opens to a spacious entryway and open living space, complete with wood floors, custom molding and a fireplace. Through an arched entryway, find the formal dining room stylishly outfitted with wallpaper and a bright coat of paint on custom wainscoting — a detail we adore.
Thanks to a thoughtful open-concept design, the kitchen, breakfast area and living room function as individual spaces, with a natural flow between them. In the kitchen, with custom cabinetry and high-end finishes, a neutral color palette creates a tranquil environment. The practical layout is ideal for chefs and entertainers, especially those who appreciate endless storage and counter space. From the kitchen, the breakfast area extends to the sun-drenched living room, where views of the property can be admired through large bay windows.
A main-floor guest suite could be used as a master suite and is spacious and bright. The bathroom incorporates fashionable elements, including playful tile flooring and copper finishes, plus a large walk-in closet with custom storage solutions. This suite is one of three bedrooms on the main level of the home, each with private hallways, and the upstairs features two more bedrooms plus two full baths.
Open space on the home’s basement level is utilized for a large recreation room, currently filled with a comfortable couch, arcade games and a wet bar. The rec room opens to a sports court (with basketball goal) and open yard.
