About the property

<5 mi to Downtown, Green Hills, Vandy, Belmont, Lipscomb, Brentwood, Melrose.

***Back porch addition just completed! Come enjoy it while it's brand new!***


-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, back 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

-ample street parking

-yard of MORE than a half acre!

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.

Back porch: JUST finished construction in spring of 2017. 70" 4k tv outside, surround sound, patio area with torch lamps and overhead string lights. PERFECT for any group to relax.

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 Historic Waverly

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 TWO 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.

Awesome Nashville gathering place

  • 5 of 5

The house is amazing, much bigger than it looks in the pictures, and the hardest choice you will face it which part of the house to hang out in: front porch, bar, living room/kitchen, back porch-- all are amazing! Such a great place for a group 8. The house is gorgeously decorated, clean, and well appointed. There is wifi, speakers throughout the house, and the biggest TV I have ever seen. Everything you need!

Jameson was fantastic, providing great recommendations for places to eat and go out, and generally providing a warm welcome to Nashville. Great hospitality. The house is walking distance to the 12 South neighborhood, which offers great shopping and dining.

The only things that I would add would be a traditional coffee pot in the kitchen (there is a Nespresso) but it is not ideal for bigger groups hungry for coffee, and we wished we had some lawn games to enjoy the amazing back yard.

Many thanks to Jameson for being an amazing host!

Stunning home in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

This home is gorgeous, inside and out! We could not have been any happier with it. It was the perfect setup for our girls trip. It is spacious, comfortable, and clean. Plus, very safe and convenient - a quick uber ride to downtown, and a beautiful 10 minute walk to 12 South restaurants. And near the 12 South restaurants, we found two awesome Nashville murals which are a must for a group photo! I cannot say enough nice things about our stay here! I highly recommend!

Was just here for a Girls Trip for a 40th Birthday! I can not stopping thinking of this home and our stay here. Enjoyed every inch of this home, was so relaxing and cozy. We socialized in every room, because how could you not in this gorgeous home. Took beautiful picture outside on the back and front patio. Had drinks and ate in the bar room. Then relaxed in the living room. But most importantly lets talk about that really cool light up Nashville sign, we had to have taken a ton of pictures in front of that sign, hahaha! Loved every bit of Nashville, Thank you

Beautiful home in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Jameson and his wife were such gracious hosts! I've rented a lot of homes and have never had such great service provided. He met us at the house to walk through all the details of the home. Since it rained primarily the entire duration of our stay, we thoroughly enjoyed the covered patio in the backyard with TV and gas fireplace. This home has all the amenities you need and more, with the bonus of great hosts.
