***BRAND NEW DEN/SCREENING AREA NOT PHOTOGRAPHED YET! INQUIRE WITHIN FOR UPDATED PHOTOS (no professional photos yet, so I can send you iphone pics!)***


-4 beds which comfortably sleeps 8 people (2 rooms with 1 king bed each, 1 room with 2 queen beds)

-many areas have wireless music via Airport Express/AppleTV (speakers on front porch, bar, screening room, and living room. ALL wireless straight from your phone, computer, ipad, etc)

-10 barstool bar with surround sound (GREAT for get togethers, having friends over, or even to use as oversized eating area. Also works as a great blackjack table, you just have to get someone to agree to be dealer ;))

-attached garage to keep your car safe

-all in Nashville's coolest, safest, most walkable district- 12 South

I'll go through the house and give highlights of each main area...

Front porch: The front porch of this house is one of the things that made me buy it. There's an "bedswing" as I call it (basically an oversized couch hanging from ropes). There is seating for 8 comfortably on the front porch including the bedswing, two rocking chairs, two padded resin wicker chairs, and one resin wicker loveseat.

Bar: Right when entering the home, you'll be in the bar area. I decided when I bought this house that a dining room wasn't usable enough for me, so I built a bar instead. The bar has 10 barstools and is made out of wood I got from the inside of an old tobacco barn in Kentucky. I built this by myself right when I moved into this house and I love it. It serves as a great hangout space and even an informal dining area. It also has a surround sound system that can be accessed wirelessly via Apple Airport Express (aka-any computer with iTunes, iPhone, iPad, etc).

Kitchen/living room: Featuring gas range, oven, microwave, side-by-side fridge dishwasher, twin-basin sink, white carrara marble countertops, 3 barstools, 4 seat glass kitchen table, and large pantry. Living room has 65" Vizio HD TV with Xfinity digital cable, AppleTV, and Sony soundbar. 4 sofas and large coffee table.

Upstairs screening area: 75" HDTV, AppleTV, full Bowers & Wilkins surround sound, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 connected.

Blue bedroom: all new, upholstered furniture, king size bed, sitting area, floor-length mirror, dresser and closet

Nashville bedroom: espresso wood colored king size bed and dresser, floor-length mirror, closet.

Queens bedroom: two queen size beds, isolated from the rest of the house with its own staircase entry (great for kids or those that want to get away from the others!) has on suite full bathroom and closet.

Before reading ahead, please understand there are THREE bedrooms with FOUR beds (2 bedrooms with a king in each, one bedroom with 2 queens). Additional guests are welcome to bring own air mattresses, but additional linens and pillows will not be provided for these extra guests.

About Jameson Roper

Hey everyone!

My name is Jameson and I'm a lifelong Nashvillian. My parents moved here for music and I carried on the Nashville stereotype by growing up as a session and touring musician. I have since gotten into real estate and love everything about Nashville. I bought this home for myself to live in back in August of 2014, and shortly after, met my now-wife. We love living here more than any other place in Nashville and want to share the neighborhood experience with YOU!

Jameson Roper purchased this house in 2014

Why Jameson Roper chose Nashville

As a touring musician for years, I got to go see almost anywhere I've ever wanted to. The one thing that remained constant through all my travels was that I always got excited about coming back to Nashville. There's something about this city that keeps me so happy, interested, and energized. Having lived in Brentwood, Hillsboro Village, Cool Springs, Green Hills, and Franklin, I've seen my fair share of all the city has to offer. I always wanted to live in 12 South. As anybody that lives or does real estate in Nashville knows (I'm a realtor), homes in 12 South are gone before they ever hit market. I knew this home's previous owner and was able to buy it before it ever went to market and I've never been happier with a purchase. It is everything I've ever wanted in a house in the location I've always dreamed about.

What makes this house unique

Located on a quiet neighborhood street within walking distance of all 12 South AND Melrose has to offer. Restaurants, venues, and shops like Jeni's Ice Cream, Josephine, Burger Up, Imogene + Willie, Edley's, Zanies, Love Peace & Pho and more within walking distance (all while being within THREE miles of downtown's epicenter, TWO miles of Vanderbilt University and Medical Center, and ONE mile of Belmont University) makes this location absolutely perfect for your home base while in Nashville.

When I bought this home, I wanted it to be a great place to entertain, unwind, and just live. It feels comfortable, clean, and relaxed, and that's by design. From the huge front porch with custom bedswing, to the 10 seat bar, to the upstairs projector-centered movie room, to the 1/2 acre privacy-fenced backyard, everything in this house will make you instantly feel at home.

Another great benefit is that you get us! We both have been around the world and can tailor suggestions for your stay depending on what you want. We want to be used as resources to make your stay in Nashville the BEST it can possibly be.

Perfect girls weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Met up with some college friends for a weekend in Nashville and this house was perfect! It was close to everything and was amazing. The back porch with fire place was a great hangout as well as the tv room and kitchen.

Heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

The owners of this house are the best host ever. The House was fully stocked with everything you could need so you didn't have to worry about grabbing something a beer something to eat. I've been around the world and I own several vacation rentals and this by far was one of the best days I've ever had.

Gorgous house and great location!!!

  • 5 of 5

I just stayed her for my sisters bachelorette party and it was everything we hoped for. It was clean and the host left extra stuff for us to use. Only a 5 minute uber ride into town. They also left a list of recommendations for us to do in Nashville. If the house wasn't good enough Jameson and his wife were so nice and answered all of the questions we had. Highly recommend this house. Sound system is the entire house was awesome! Thanks for letting us stay.

Best House! Best Location! Best Experience!

  • 5 of 5

10 of us spent the weekend at this amazing house in Nashville. Not only was the house immaculate, the location was amazing. Plenty of sleeping space, a great outdoor area and lots of places to relax inside. The owner of the house could not have been nicer. He went out of his way to ensure we had everything we needed and was always available just in case there were any issues. The house is walking distance to bars/restaurants on 12th ave and is a short/cheap Uber to downtown. Our group could not have had a better experience and I would recommend this house to anyone coming to Nashville!

Great location and very spacious/ clean

  • 5 of 5

Our group of ten very much enjoyed staying in this home this weekend. It was very clean and spacious. Jameson could not have been more helpful from start to finish. He also helped us with great restaraunt/bar recommendations. The front porch is the place to be...very relaxing for all. I/ we will definitely refer others to this great home.
