About the property

Beautiful Artist's Retreat, Less Than A Mile From Downtown Franklin

We are excited to open our eclectic and spacious Franklin artist's home, owned by a Grammy winning songwriter and producer, to you and your family. You will love the laid back artsy feel and the efficient and spacious floor plan of this 4 bedroom 3.5 bath home. Located just under a mile and an easy stroll from Franklin's lovely downtown and all it has to offer including shops, restaurants, and more. If you like civil war history, you will love this location smack dab in the middle of the battle of Franklin battlefield and just a few blocks from the famous Carter House and museum. We have a small number of civil war artifacts and bullets on display in the kitchen that were found right here on our property.

Guests have full use of the entire house and all amenities as well as the two rear decks. There is parking for 3 vehicles in the front. The rear parking areas are reserved. There is a separate building in the rear of the property which is not accessible to guests.

If you like walking, there are some great side streets which will take you through some quaint neighborhoods that you can stroll through, eventually leading you into downtown Franklin and eventually Main Street (the downtown area is about a 15 minute walk on side streets).

About Nancy Stevens

We are a fun-loving family of 6 with 4 boys! We are originally from Oregon and have lived in the Nashville area since 2005. My husband is a Grammy winning songwriter and producer and I am a health and wellness coach.

Nancy Stevens purchased this house in 2005

Why Nancy Stevens chose Franklin

We love the charm and laid back appeal of downtown Franklin. We originally purchased this house for my husband to use as a recording studio. Many hit Christian songs have been recorded in this house prior to its complete remodel and re-conversion back to a beautiful home.

What makes this house unique

Our comfortable home has a nice large southern front porch with rockers and the area is surrounded by civil war history. We have found many artifacts (with metal detectors) literally in our own back yard, such as bullets, buckles, etc. A small number of those are on display in the kitchen.

Great spot . Central to Franklin and not far from Nashville

  • 5 of 5

This property was as advertised. It was clean, well furnished, and a short drive to everything in Franklin. It is about a 20 minute drive to Nashville from this property. You can easily enjoy Nashville from here without the ridiculous expense of finding something in the city. I recommend this property if you are in need of a house for a family or for several adults.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience visiting in Franklin for our son's wedding. This home is wonderfully decorated, and very spacious for our large family. The three full baths and large master bedroom are great. The front porch and back yard are also super for the children. Our family enjoyed the kitchen and the family rooms as well. Nancy was quick to respond to our texts and emails. We would most definitely recommend this home for a family looking to visit the Franklin area.
