About Ben & Elaine Pearson

Ben & Elaine have lived in this house 28 years, since their children were small. Ben is a filmmaker, photographer and musician. Throughout the years Ben has filmed and photographed numerous musicians in his studio including Amy Grant, Michael W. Smith and Rich Mullins to name a few. Elaine is an L&D nurse at Centennial Medical Center. They love to travel and have gone to many unusual places in the world. Ben worked with Compassion International,World Vision and Food for the Hungry for years so his passport is peppered with numerous barely known third world counties.

Ben & Elaine Pearson purchased this House in 1990

Why Ben & Elaine Pearson chose Belmont/Hillsboro

We chose this home primarily because Ben came here to shoot album covers and we are only blocks from music row. We love it here and expect that it will be in the family for generations. Most of the must see spots are less than a 10 min drive without even getting on the interstate. It is walking distance from Belmont University for any families wishing to check it out or attend graduation. It is perfect for a family reunion, college reunion, groups coming to attend a wedding. Many houses advertise that they can sleep 10-12 but this house can do that without taking away the large common areas used to gather and celebrate. Walking to 12 excellent restaurants from our front door is a bonus since sometimes it's nice to not deal with traffic and parking. We love hosting here, it's so inviting!

What makes this House unique

This 100 year old house with it's classic layout and high ceilings lets you breathe, relax, pause and reflect. Life goes by too fast. There are fun little corners to explore. Many people have said it reminds them of their grandma's house. built in 1916 there are many unique features that just aren't seen in houses built after the 1940's. In spite of it's age this house is energy efficient and is cool in summer and warm in winter thanks to our Geothermal water furnace. Take time to just be. Selah...
