About the Property

Charming house near the Row, special spot on edge of neighborhood, MUSIC house!

This Nashville house is an old charmer.. with young blood! Just minutes to Music Row and Downtown for you working musicians/writers/recording artists or the visiting tourist. Comes loaded with instruments piano, guitars, (acoustic, electric, 12 string, tenor) acoustic bass. You can write your next smash hit here! All the comforts of your home away from home (quality beds and pillows for a great nights sleep.. so important!)

Vintage character and details but all new where it counts (brand new central heating/air and electrical). This home is on the edge of a very quiet neighborhood and very easy to get in and out of. So you can spend a wild night downtown or a long day working on the row and then retreat to your quiet home away from home.. or have your friends over and play music, drink wine and enjoy yourself.. you wont bother anyone, (no drum kits though!) as it is on the edge of the neighborhood (on a huge corner lot, across from an old school that is now a community center with very little attendance) which is why it is so unique and perfect.

It is an eclectic house in a diverse neighborhood with much to offer for the price. You can go just around the corner and down the street to a park, golf course and greenway which goes along the river.. great for a walk/run or bike ride. Near to TSU, Music Row, downtown, West End, Vanderbilt, Belmont, Bridgestone Arena and everything great about Nashville... but it is not congested like trying to get in and out of most of the other neighborhoods that surround the hub of Nashville..or a soul-less condo downtown where all of the riffraff are. This house is very special place with the right vibe for creative people like you. You will see once you are here for awhile, this town has quite a bit of traffic and is getting worse by the day but getting in and out downtown and music row from here is easier than anywhere else. There are several shortcuts through the back neighborhood. Very convenient for those who have to work on the row or downtown.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: I am a recording artist/songwriter who travels constantly. I was born in Southern California and tour all the time.. it is always nice visit the beach city I grew up in but then conversely, I like spending time in Music city with my friends and cohorts in the music biz... I am easily inspired here and seem to thrive in Nashville. It is a very special city. I have been in this business for a long time and enjoyed many ups and weathered many downs, learning valuable lessons along the way. I have an amazing son and family. I feel blessed to have a little piece of Nashville to call my own and to be able to share it with you. It is a very old house with a very warm vibe.. (i prefer the old homes, all of the wood details and unique features... I prefer to save them and cherish them,.. they don't make 'em like they used to!). I look forward to hosting you in the near future!

Why the Owner Chose North Nashville, Nashville, TN, USA:
I purchased this property because I have worked in Nashville off and on for many years and gotten to know it very well. I have seen it grow and always wanted to buy a home here. My plan was to have a house where my friends and peers in the music industry could stay when they are here in town working; wether it's a writing or recording session, or meetings on The Row.. or a gig.. this house serves as a perfect home base. A place where they can write, play music, record demos, find peace and quiet and inspiration and be close to all of the places they need be. I later found that people of all walks of life adore my home because it is quality and has a very special vibe.. also, many a hit songwriter have played that piano and stayed at The Writer's Pad! I love my house and I love my neighborhood. Since I bought the place I have had many offers but I'm not selling any time soon!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
A lot of wood trim and a craftsman style feel. This house is vintage chic with a very cozy vibe.
