Welcome to "Eclipse"! A little bit rustic, a little bit chic. Our barn home combines both to provide you with the perfect hideaway! Located only 23 miles from downtown Nashville! It's easy to hit the hotspots and then return to the farm to fish, hike, or just do a little stargazing! Also, just 14 miles to historic Franklin and 12 miles to the quaint village of Leipers Fork. Activities in all directions! Enjoy them all while staying on a private, peaceful farm. The best of all worlds!
The black, cedar planked barn was constructed by a well known Nashville builder as a get away for friends and family. Everything has a story! The living quarters are located at one end of a huge, 3 story barn. No one will occupy the barn but you! Balconies offer sweeping views of the forest and fields. Located behind a gated entry, no other structure is within site. Nothing but the deer and turkey! Our home is about a half mile from the barn, down a pea gravel road. You will have total privacy, but we are close should you need anything during your stay.
The living quarters were recently renovated and offer all the comforts of home. The decor is best described as "eclectic" with a wonderful mix of modern and antique. Original art, oriental rugs, and rustic architectural elements all combine to provide a casually elegant retreat. The kitchen has stainless appliances and countertops are concrete and sleek, white quartz. Open to the kitchen is the dining area with a reclaimed wood top table and seating area with a cozy, wood burning fireplace. All open to a large deck with fantastic views and morning sun! The original beams, old brick fireplace, and wormy chestnut paneling still remain serving as the perfect foil for some of the modern furnishings. The bathroom, on main level, has travertine tile, multi head shower bar, and seamless glass doors! Upstairs is an open bedroom with a king-size tempurpedic mattress, and private balcony overlooking the farm. Adjacent are two other bedrooms with full size beds.
Spend a lazy afternoon relaxing in the hammock or challenging your friends and family with a game of horse shoes. After dinner, you can gather around the fire pit and roast some marsh mellows!
You are welcome to enjoy our 180 acre farm. It is a mix of woods and fields and is loaded with wildlife. There are walking trails, spring, slate bottom creek, and a 1 acre, spring fed lake complete with dock, canoe, and picnic table. The lake is full of fish so bring your pole and pack a lunch! Spend a day floating and fishing the nearby Harpeth River or Big Turnbull Creek. We can even arrange a professional fly fishing guide for you!
For those who would prefer, spend the day exploring the nearby historic towns of Franklin, Leipers Fork, and Kingston Springs. All are quaint and unique! Of course, Nashville is just a short drive as well!
With activities in all directions, make sure and plan enough time to soak up the peaceful solitude that "Eclipse" offers. It all adds up to a perfect get away, and we look forward to having you as our guests!
