If you’ve watched more than a minute of HGTV, scrolled through design posts on Instagram or even thumbed through a glossy copy of Better Homes and Gardens, you know that the “farmhouse” vibe is still going strong.  Recently, I read a post about when this rustic/vintage/shabby-chic/farmhouse trend might end, and the author made a good point: this adoration for all things farmhouse isn’t a fad… it’s a way to embrace a slower-paced, gentler lifestyle, to design and make your home reflect old-fashioned values while adopting a thoroughly modern appreciation for simplicity and comfort.  If you, like me and the rest of the western world, has fallen in love with the modern farmhouse, then I have the perfect home for you.  This four bedroom, four bath home located in the heart of Williamson County, is the quintessential modern farmhouse.  Situated on a gorgeous hilltop overlooking some of Franklin’s most beautiful landscapes, this home is inspired by the natural beauty that surrounds it!

Truth: if I lived here, I’d spend all my time on the front porch swing, enjoying a nice glass of sweet tea and thanking my lucky stars.  The pretty front porch spans the entire front of the home and is accented with a bead board ceiling and swoon-worthy views.  A pair of farmhouse doors open to a bright and sunny foyer.  Wide plank heart of pine wood floors extend from the entryway to the formal living room, dining room and family room.  Each room has been carefully designed with extra special touches including vintage lighting, crown molding and ceilings painted in a gorgeous gray that contrasts beautifully with the warm cream tones of the walls and wooden doors.  The family room, anchored by a brick encased wood-burning fireplace, opens to the picture-perfect kitchen with its slate tile floor and dramatic wood-beamed ceiling.  State of the art appliances offer a thoroughly modern atmosphere, but the pretty wood cabinetry and marble topped island offers 100% old-fashioned charm!  A beautifully appointed mudroom, laundry room and locker room with built-in cubbies and a handmade mahogany bench are situated just off the kitchen for maximum convenience.

Bedrooms… this house does them right!  The main level master suite would be more accurately described as a retreat.  The bedroom proper is light-filled and lovely with double doors that open to a brick terrace.  The master bathroom is my ideal with a gorgeous dual vanity that sits opposite a delicious clawfoot tub.  Bead board accents give the space a cozy, yet elegant appeal while a light blue ceiling (also found in the bedroom) creates a peaceful and serene ambiance.  An amazing walk-in closet/dressing room features built-in shelves and hanging racks and is spacious enough to double as a sitting room.  Upstairs, three absolutely fabulous bedrooms feature dormer windows, semi-vaulted ceilings and are designed to perfection.  One includes a sweet reading loft and all feature curated lighting fixtures.

In addition to all that, this home also includes a large game room, a loft-like bonus room and a rustic firepit in the tree-lined backyard.  A storm shelter installed in the two-car garage provides peace of mind and safety for your family.  This property is nestled amongst lush, mature trees and situated atop a hill that offers amazing views.  As the leaves turn, there’s no finer time to appreciate this home and all the beauty that surrounds this.  Do yourself a big ol’ favor… call me for a private showing.  You’ll be so glad you did!
