If ever there was an intriguing house rich in warmth and robust in features, it’s this amazing 5,163-square-foot, 4 bed, 4.5 bath home at 305 Bowling, tucked unassumingly between Whitland and Woodlawn Avenues. “The Whitland-Bowling area is one of the most desirable locations in town, in terms of both aesthetics and convenience,” says Nashville realtor Richard Courtney of Christianson, Patterson, Courtney & Associates. “It’s a walkable area lined with beautiful homes, and it’s close to everything.”
This 1930 Tudor-style home has aged well, a nod to the quality craftsmanship of the era in which it was built. Having enjoyed an update and expansion, the preservation of the home’s architectural features adds to its interest, and yet that’s just the beginning. “This home has two very rare features for an in-town Nashville property,” adds Richard. “It is the equivalent of a double lot, which provides more privacy and an estate-like setting for this lovely Tudor. And the picture-perfect back yard features a stunning pool, tiered stone terraces and a custom pool house.” Add in plenty of light-filled spaces and high ceilings for openness, and custom trim and a warm color palette for approachability, and you have the recipe for one stunning Nashville home.
Grab your coffee and have a seat — you’re going to enjoy this tour …
Upon entry, you’ll find plenty of natural light pouring into the formal living room, shedding light — quite literally — on all of the beautiful hardwoods and architectural millwork found inside. Whether enjoying tea by the fireplace, or reading a great book on the window seat, this room is formal and inviting at once. Through a wide, pointed archway to the right, you’ll find a long, formal dining room perfect for entertaining a crowd or celebrating a special occasion. Continue through the French doors at the other end of the dining room, and you’ll enter a gorgeous sunroom. The copious amount of windows only pales in comparison to the breathtaking wood framework surrounding them.
Make your way into the large, light-filled kitchen by way of butler’s pantry, just off the dining room. The galley-style kitchen boasts plenty of cabinet and countertop space, display shelves and recessed lighting, while the breakfast room, perfect for a casual meal anytime, features more built-in cabinets and counter space, perfect for buffet-style meals.
One of the most stunning spaces in the home is the family room, located just off the breakfast room. The design is nothing short of amazing — tall, vaulted ceilings showcase exposed beams, while floor-to-ceiling windows on either side contain the space. “The family room addition artfully connects the original house to the beautiful backyard living spaces,” shares Richard. “The room’s high, beamed ceiling and wood-burning fireplace offer an instant welcome, and French doors open onto the broad stone terraces and overlook the pool, pool house and green space out back.”
Also on the first floor, you’ll find a spacious guest room with an updated en suite bath as well as another bedroom, full bath and a second den, which features beautifully maintained hardwood floors, custom trim work, lots of natural light and plantation shutters for privacy as needed. Open the French doors to find a screened porch, offering another calming retreat.
Heading upstairs, you’ll find a spacious landing off of which are two additional bedrooms. The owners’ suite is generous in size, offering plenty of space to move around. Additionally, two very large walk-in closets make this space a winner! But the wow factor doesn’t stop there — the large bathroom features a dual vanity, large shower and a soaking tub to wash away all the cares of the world!
The other upstairs bedroom features intriguing lines and architectural elements as well — a quaint reading nook, clerestory windows, a second cedar closet and another full bath. Surprisingly, as if there’s not end to the space this home provides, there is additional walk-in attic storage on the second floor as well!
Other stand-out features on this impressive property include an additional ground-level office space with separate entrance that opens to the back yard — perfect for those who work at home but appreciate a little work/home separation. Recessed lighting, built-in casework and a half-bath round out this convenient area.
Additional amenities worth noting include a large walk-out basement with washer/dryer hookup, additional activity space and yes, more storage. The two-car garage offers a covered walkway to the home, perfect for when spring showers pour down, and the beautiful landscaping on this well-maintained half-acre property makes this the perfect place to call home.
