Walk 4 blocks to 12South and the plentiful shops, ice cream, restaurants, tap rooms, pizzerias, popsicles, food trucks, bakeries and more!

Sevier Park is about 7 blocks and has a weekly Farmer's Market on Tuesdays. There are concerts in the summertime.

The Space:

This is a custom built, makeover of a house from the 30s. It took 2 years + of artisan builders- not the "get 'er done" types but artists of design and builders of detail - I wanted it to look like it always was this way - (but,it was not always like this-we were true to the era)-the builder,Bill Schleicher, won the Nashville Preservation award as designer in 2014 - my house was done by him in 2003 and 2004 (and always getting better)

All of the poplar trim was milled in the back yard, the 30 plus pieces of vintage stained glass added 10 years ago, the kitchen cabinets are framed in what was the former living room oak floors, the banisters were the chestnut timbers repurposed from the roof joists, the quilts on beds are handmade by my sis-in-law, and over 130 original pieces of art and furnishings in this house, and on, & on, & on- this has been my home since 2002 - this is NOT a staged space - there is an artful, real soul feel to this home - and we welcome you to it. (Have I said too much?)

Guest Access:

You will have access to our 7' 6" kawaii grand piano (please care for it like I do) - from chop sticks to Chopin, viewing access to our 130 plus pieces of art throughout the home, our great balcony deck (north facing out of the southern sun ) with handmade cedar table/benches & stainless steel gas grill (natural gas...never run out)- and a cook's kitchen -(please request any cookware you may want (outside of provided basics) from cheesecake pans to slow cookers to copper jam pans to Appalachian iron skillets - request it - I probably have it - (did I mention your own off street parking?)

*Note - the basement is not available. This is a separate apartment. Everything you see pictured is available to you!

The Neighborhood:

This IS the best neighborhood in Nashville. When I bought in 2002, I looked at all areas. This is old neighborhood, diverse, family and creatives, safe, beautiful streets & homes, dozens of indie restaurants, coffee houses, bars ALL within walking distance. Walk to get groceries (2 grocers), walk to Tues. farmer's market and food trucks at Sevier Park, walk to Vandy, Music Row, Belmont University, Hillsboro Village...all are that close. Of course, in this house, you may not wanna leave for anything. Oh, and you can drive your car, too.

Getting around:

Parking is available in the driveway and on the street.

Other Things to Note:

This has been an inspirational place to live. Many songs have been written here, many meals cooked and shared. Many pieces of art collected from around the world hung here. If you are looking for a special place to spend time in Nashville, we can not imagine a better one. We are foodies, (we have a nearby great beer source: The Filling Station (we will provide empty growlers if you wanna fill up with artisan beers). From the architecture of our neighborhood homes, to our neighborhood old art cinema (10 min. walk), to our indie food & drink places, to walking safely, to easy driving access to everything Nashville has, to our suggestions (if you want them) of Music City's best of everything. We think your time here will be well served, right here.

                                              Quiet neighborhood great location for us

                                              Sweet Refrain, LLCAiken SC

                                              This house is artsy and interesting. We enjoyed our stay


                                              Wanda D.

                                              Super location, nice quiet neighborhood . Very homey decor with lovely quilts. Big kitchen area with dining area right there made it easy to visit with those cooking Thanksgiving dinner. Our dog enjoyed exploring the yard & walking him through out the neighborhood was nice. House manager was very attentive. I’d suggest window coverings for upstairs bedroom so you don’t have to wake up at sunrise !

                                              Would definitely recommend!!!

                                              Beautiful eclectic charming fun house in a great area of Nashville.

                                              Ed A.

                                              We really enjoyed the house. Lovely decor and great location. The grand piano was a treat and it was beautifully maintained.

                                              Great home in an awesome neighborhood!

                                              Rachael H.

                                              We had a great time during our stay here. It's close to a lot of great restaurants and shopping. Comfy beds, including the daybed and futon. I will definitely be coming back!

                                              Great location!

                                              Angela S.Charlotte, NC

                                              Great location! Could walk to a ton of restaurants and a grocery store, and was a cheap Uber ride to downtown.

                                              The house was clean and the two bedrooms were great. However, it should not be advertised that it sleeps 6 unless they provide more comfortable futons. The one futon in the upstairs loft was horrible and so uncomfortable that 2 of our guests had to reach out to a friend of a friend to ask them if they could stay at her house elsewhere in Nashville to stay the second night of our stay b/c the futons were so uncomfortable (they didn't sleep at all the first night). The kitchen was not very well stocked as far as pans or cooking utensils, so if you were planning on making a meal at the house you might have a hard time. Maybe we didn't look hard enough for good knives or other large spoons, etc, but they were not easily found if they existed.

                                              Also the chairs around the dining table were terrible. There was no cushioning on the seats of at least 3 of them. Couldn't really even sit on them.

                                              But the house worked great for the weekend for a girls trip and the location was great. The owner was accommodating and responsive.

                                              However, wouldn't stay here again unless we had 4 or fewer people.

                                              Owner's Response:

                                              Thank you so much for noting the incredible location of the Ashwood Hill House - we are two blocks from Belmont University and four blocks to 12 South and Hillsboro Village - both locations have amazing local restaurants and eclectic shopping!

                                              We have changed the futon to a queen bed and bought new chairs for the dining table. All upgrades!! We so appreciate your feedback and want guests to know that we listen and make improvements.

                                              Thanks so much for choosing our property for your stay in Nashville!
