About the property

4 Bedroom, 3 Bath-Sleeps 12

Rental is for Farmhouse only. John Thompson purchased this land in 1812 for 50 cents per acre. He started construction of his home and completed it in 1815. He had a daughter and a son. His son, Dr. Elijah Thompson settled on the west side of the property. Thompson's Station is named after him.

The daughter, Emily, and her husband, Dr. Samuel Fleming settled in this original home.

The farm house was built with hand cut limestone and timber found on the property. It took over 2 years for the current owners to completely restore the home to its original beauty and double its size.

Historical elements from log walls to an 8 feet by 9 feet rock fireplace can be found in this one of a kind property. The fireplace was the largest of its kind in Williamson county when it was built.

With all new plumbing, electrical, hvac, insulation and more this historical property has the best of all worlds. The character of the old with the conveniences of the new.

The library and dining rooms have the original ash floors, poplar walls and up to 12 feet ceilings with exposed beams. In the kitchen you can cook in the same fireplace as the Thompsons and Flemings did over 200 years ago. However, you can do it with totally new appliances.

The master suite has 12 feet ceilings, a triple window overlooking the beautiful acreage which includes the original dairy barn, pond and rolling hills. This elegant suite provides guests a king size bed with television and large closet space. The master bath consists of double vanities, a claw foot tub, separate shower and toilet room. Total tranquility is found in this setting.

Another of the guest suites has a queen size bed with its own bath, walk in closet and incredible vistas. The entire home is hardwood floors. The ceilings and beams are poplar from the original farm house.

The guest room in the rear of the home has 4 extra long twin beds built with the wood from the original house. Each of the vertical beams holding the ladder on the bunk beds are single whole sections of wood which came from the corner of the original house that had to be removed. You can see the wood peg construction. All the iron work is hand crafted by a well known North Carolina artisan. It has its own television and walk in closet.

The upstairs is its own suite with living area, television and 4 single beds. Enjoy the original poplar floors and walls as you relax. The windows look out over the beautiful Tennessee hillsides.

If all that wasn't enough, step out onto the screened in porch that covers most of one side of the house. It has a large screen television, table that sits 8 and views over the entire farm, pond, barns and much more. If you want more outside living you can walk down the stairs to the brick patio with reclaimed wrought iron fencing and gate. This area alone has two iron tables that will sit 12 people. Rates are for house only and for a maximum of 12 people staying there.

History and Elegance in one place, Briarwood Farm.
