Nashville builders and homeowners mostly played it safe during the ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s, leaving behind a large number of ranch homes that aren’t completely traditional or modern but somewhere in between. Solidly on the modern side of the style spectrum after a recent renovation is Tammy Elkins’s listing at 1207 Brentwood Lane in Brentwood Hills. On the main level, as you would expect, the kitchen and master bedroom have gotten major upgrades. The finished basement currently functions as a chill music/recording space, but you don’t have to be a professional musician to appreciate the bar area, fireplace, and full bathroom. Check out the open house today, September 20, from 2 to 4.
Built in 1988, this Manuel Zeitlin-designed home near Bellevue is scheduled to hit the auction block this Thursday, July 23, at 11 A.M. Yes, there’s some glass block and the arrangement of bannisters overlooking the living room looks a bit organ loft-y, but the design has aged pretty well, really. There are 5 bedrooms and 4.5 baths on 3 levels—4,532 square feet in all. Throughout, natural light and views of the surrounding 22 acres of woods pour in through large windows, glass doors, and skylights. Asking price for this very private property is $1,189,000.
