When a home becomes available on Hampton Avenue, it usually doesn’t stay on the market very long. The popular street in the heart of Green Hills is dotted with beautiful, character-filled homes on lush, manicured lots with mature trees.
“It’s one of Nashville’s most special streets, where neighbors and friends are words used interchangeably,” says realtor Richard Courtney of Christianson, Patterson, Courtney & Associates. “There are annual picnics with bounce houses, bicycle parades and fire engine rides. And there are a couple of adult events each year, too, with progressive dinners and a holiday walk each December.”
We are excited to offer a peek inside this gorgeous home at 3606 Hampton Ave. today, and yes, it’s on the market. The 4,236-square-foot beautifully renovated home features light-filled rooms, lovely architectural details and stunning hardwood floors throughout.
Starting at the curb, you will automatically fall in love. The professional landscaping perfectly suits the beautiful brick home with fresh, green shutters and a framed glass door. And, with just under a half an acre lot, the 4-bedroom, 4-bath home has plenty of room for entertaining and gathering space — both inside and out.
Built in 1935, the home has charm and character throughout, as well as several designated rooms to fit a family’s needs. Upon entry, the home features a bright, elegant formal living room next to the formal dining room that offers views of the front landscape. A large butler’s pantry with ice machine is adjacent to the dining room, a perfect addition for hosting dinner parties, extra storage and displaying your favorite glassware.
This flows into a large updated, open kitchen with warm oak cabinets, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. The kitchen offers functionality, as it opens to the family room on one side and overlooks the gathering room on the other; it’s the perfect spot to be in the evening — cooking with a glass of wine as kids do homework.
The family room shows off some of the many architectural details in this renovated home with its striking coffered ceiling and antique brick fireplace. The features give this home its charm but the updated modern conveniences give it its ease.
One of the other “wow” factors is the gathering room right off the kitchen and family room. With wall-to-wall windows, it is the place to be on a quiet Sunday morning. It invokes comfort, invites conversation and truly is a unique space.
But the rooms do not end there! Also on the ground floor is an all-season sunroom or office space off the family room that opens to a screened-in porch (can it get any better?!). The perfectly designed screened porch addition features a large stone fireplace and ample room for year-round entertaining. It connects to the large gathering room to offer a seamless space for guests to gather.
“This home is in an ideal location and offers lots of living space – inside and out – making it a great home for those who enjoy entertaining or have an active family,” says Richard. ”In fact, the current owners have hosted the annual neighborhood crawfish boil here.”
Looking out from the porch, you can see the lovely, landscaped, gated backyard, which has a flagstone patio, fire pit and detached two-car garage.
Finally, rounding out the downstairs is the master suite, a true retreat painted with soft colors and boasting a large walk-in closet, built-in shelving, dual vanities, separate shower space, a soaking tub and heated marble floors. The perfect place to escape after a long day.
Upstairs you can find the spacious kids’ area with a reading room or den, three bedrooms, two full baths and large laundry room. Each of the rooms on the second floor has its own personality and configuration — a lovely aspect often found in older homes.
And … don’t forget the location!
“What Nashville is to higher education, Hampton Avenue is to primary and secondary education. More than a dozen of the city’s top public and private schools are within minutes of this home,” adds Richard.
This home is a gem offering plenty of places to entertain … Dinner party! Family Halloween party! Game night! And with its ideal location, this really is the perfect house!
