                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1999

                  About the owner: My passion for traveling to Italy led me to transform this home into a beautiful country retreat in 1999. Every architectural element and the peaceful, secluded setting reminds me of Tuscan villas I've stayed in over the years, the simple life and a very sought-after living environment.

                  Why the Owner Chose Franklin:
                  I chose to purchase this home because it has a secluded, country retreat setting and atmosphere yet extremely close to Franklin and Nashville. With 11 acres the property is ideal for privacy & seclusion yet within minutes of Nashville & Franklin. The architectural design elements inside and out remind me of coming home to a country retreat for some rest & relaxation

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Situated on 11 acres, this home is ideal for entertaining. A stone exterior, castle like entry doors, gas lanterns, wood burning fireplace, Italian tile & furnishings, hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, outdoors decks, gardens and a park like setting make this property unique.
