This month we have a three-way tie for third place with three — count ‘em, three! — homes coming in at $6.5 million each.

With the 10th home on the list coming in at a whopping $4,750,000, it feels more and more likely that we’ll soon see an installment of Headline Homes where not a single sale dips below $5 million. That’d be a HH first.

Below are June’s top 10 home sales in Nashville and the surrounding counties, ranked by sale price.


1. 5836 Hillsboro Pike

Buyer: Sun-Drop Terrace LLC

Sale price: $10,633,000

Seller: Paul and Carla McCombs

Sellers’ and buyer’s agent: Karen Russell, Partners Real Estate, LLC

According to the listing, this 11,034-square-foot home is “built like a fortress” and “an entertainer’s dream,” which makes me think of the movie The Purge. All the fancy houses in that movie are outfitted with expensive total lockdown security features and then they have big parties on purge night.

There are five bedrooms, nine bathrooms, five fireplaces and, outside, a little stream that flows into a koi pond. There’s also a two-bedroom/two-bathroom guest house with its own putting green.

Seller Paul McCombs appears to be a neurosurgeon. Buyer Sun Drop Terrace LLC is a Tennessee-based limited liability company that was established in 2017. Sun Drop is also a citrus-flavored soda. Fresca is superior.

2. 4760 Sharpsville Road, Murfreesboro

Buyer: Christopher R Redlich, Jr., Trustee, Christopher R. Jr., Revocable Living Trust

Sale price: $9,297,000

Seller’s agent: Erin Krueger, Compass Tennessee

Buyer’s agent: Christy Reed, Fridrich & Clark Realty

Known as Five Peppers Farm, this 90-acre equestrian farm features a riding area, a nine-stall barn, a hay barn and an office. I hope the office is for the horses. At the center of the sale is a 14,096-square-foot house that features more than 30 rooms (?!?), a pool and two outdoor kitchens. There’s also a two-bedroom/two-bathroom guest house with a full kitchen.

Let’s count the rooms, shall we? Five bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a sitting/music room, a formal dining room, a living room (with double-sided fireplace), a kitchen, a walk-in pantry, a breakfast area, a sunroom, an office, a gun safe (is that a room?), a game room, a movie room, a gym, a dance/yoga studio, a study/art room and more.

There are stone archways, copper accent walls, onyx chandeliers, 150-year-old barn wood from Pennsylvania and a pool grotto with diving rocks, too.

Buyer Christopher Redlich Jr. is the founder and former chairman of Healing Healthcare.

5. 7376 Harlow Drive

Buyer: SFBH LLC

Sale price: $6,500,000

Seller: Kevin Andrew Nolan

Seller’s and buyer’s agent: Johan Andries Kok, Discovery Tennessee Realty

Seller Kevin Andrew Nolan purchased this property in July 2020 for “just” $1,608,089. Who bought it this time around? Well, SFBH, the LLC that purchased the home, can stand for a lot of things. South Florida Baptist Hospital. Standards for Better Health. Sloths Fight Before Hugging. No idea what it means in this case.

6. 3738 Panorama Valley Lane, Franklin

Buyer: Steven Pinkow

Sale price: $5,445,000

Seller: Baird Graham Co. LLC

Seller’s agent: Alex Helton, Helton Real Estate Group

Buyer’s agent: Danny R. Anderson, PARKS

Little is known about this new home because construction was just completed last month. There are, supposedly, five bedrooms, five bathrooms and two half bathrooms as well as a three-car garage.

The lot, located in Williamson County’s gated Sloan Valley Farms development, was originally purchased by the construction company Baird Graham Co. LLC for $667,500.

Buyer: John N. Vidalakis, Trustee, John N. Vidalakis Revocable Trust

Sale price: $4,900,000

Seller: Kathryn Dettwiller

Sellers’ agent: Dana Griscom, Pilkerton Realtors

Buyer’s agents: Carolyn Baron and Eve Hanley, Fridrich & Clark Realty

This Hill Place stone estate looks like the kind of house where the rich kid in the early 2000s teen rom-com would host the house party where all the crazy stuff goes down on grad night. You know the type — there’s a tennis court, a “handsome” library, an indoor lap pool and a sprinkler system that probably comes on just as the cops are busting up the party and everyone is fleeing, screaming and getting soaking wet. Just an idyllic playground for innocent juvenile shenanigans — take note, Hollywood.

Seller Kathryn Dettwiller purchased the house with her husband Fred in 2016. Fred was the president of beverage distributor DET Distributing. He died in October at the age of 89.

9. 1401 Burton Valley Road
