Why the Owner Chose Franklin, TN, USA:
We fell in love with this property on the first visit. We learned the house was constructed in 1892 as 'a Victorian Home in the Queen Anne Style'. The house is absolutely beautiful and we have enjoyed decorating it so much. We are located in Franklin's Historic District and in addition to lodging, host weddings, bridal luncheons, afternoon teas and countless birthday and anniversary parties. The house was constructed as a residence in 1892. Why this property? We just loved it and still do! That's why. Although we live a few minutes away, hanging out here is fun and the large screen tv's provide a favorite get away spot for the sports lovers in our family. In January 2002 when I learned this property was on the market, my first thought was how nice it would be to own a Victorian home in Franklin's historic district, and that thought has become even nicer over the years.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The queen suites are upstairs, away from the entry level area, assuring an abundance of privacy. Our king suite has its own separate entrance.
