Why we have a crush on this property

If this gorgeous farmhouse for sale outside of Nashville looks like it was pulled straight from HGTV, it’s because it was. The 1875 home was featured on the network’s “Nashville Flipped” show, and now can be yours for the taking.

Five years ago, the show’s hosts, Troy and Julie Couch, transformed what was then an aging (and derelict) landmark into a modern charmer. Today, the three-bedroom home is stunning inside and out, with huge floor-to-ceiling windows, cornflower blue shutters, multiple pergolas, and a restored stained glass window.

The manor’s many rooms have been outfitted with recessed lighting, stylish fixtures, and shiny new hardwoods. One bathroom now offers a double vanity and a clawfoot tub, plus a walk-in shower with subway tile. The main bedroom has a walk-in closet and plenty of room for an antique writing desk. There are also three fireplaces throughout the home, including one in the kitchen and one in the upper-level library.

The yard is an extension of the home’s living spaces, with several dining areas and lots of lovely plantings. There are more than 600 square feet of covered porch space attached to the house, while pergolas around the back are draped with leafy vines and string lights. A dreamy dusk dinner party seems only natural in a spot like this one. Professional—and extensive—landscaping has also highlighted several fountains and man-made waterfalls, as well as a fire pit.
