I’m proud to show you around our new gorgeous listing at 5914 Old Harding Pike, Nashville, TN 37205. West Meade is filled with character homes and this property is no exception. The home, which sits on two flat acres (perfect for a pool) was built in 1965 by Cecil Fox, a very prominent home builder in Nashville in the 60s. Fox built the home for Leo Johnson of Johnson & Sons excavating. Johnson’s original home is the tudor style estate to the right of this home. When he developed the surrounding land — he saved this ‘best’ lot for himself and built his retirement home. Our clients are only the second owners.
The majestic stone wall entrance is the original entry to the Johnson estate.
Old meets new. The signature touch of the current homeowners brought some amazing renovations to this property. For example, the amazing chef’s kitchen is home magazine worthy:
Designed by Deans Kitchen Center of Nashville, it features custom built cabinets, top-of-the-line appliances including: Subzero refrigerator, Wolf cooktop, pot filler, double ovens and microwave, two Asko dishwashers, and a warming drawer under wall ovens. Two dishwashers sounds heavenly, doesn’t it?
Did I mention Calacatta gold marble counterops with imported Italian white subway tile? And new hardwoods.
Plus a separate wet bar area with Scotsman ice maker and GE monogram refrigerator drawers. Perfect for entertaining.
The hall bath remodel features marble countertops, a reglazed tub, Kohler fixtures, glass shower doors and subway wall tile plus Carrara marble floors.
And even more awesomeness by Dean’s. The master bath design features custom cabinetry with crema marfil counterops and tub sourround, Kohler fixtures, a Jacuzzi style bathtub. The glass shower surround also features a crema marfil wall and floor tile. There is a separate electric water heater too.
The master bedroom is spacious with designer paint and gorgeous hardwoods.
The home features the original gorgeous dining room and foyer chandeliers (including plaster medallions).
There are three fireplaces. Two are stacked stone –Crab Orchard TN.
To enhance living space, the current owners underwent a complete basement remodel in 2012. The basement features a den, two bedrooms (or flex rooms), full eat-in kitchen, a full bath and storage area.
An extension of the home is this wonderful and spacious screened-in porch, the perfect place to unwind after a long days work. Watch the kids play in the fenced in yard.
Okay, listen up! This is huge. In addition to the two-car attached garage, there is a four-car detached garage boasting 1600 square feet with electricity and a bathroom. This would make the perfect music studio, home office, pool house, apartment…
