4531 Long Lane Franklin

The economy may have taken a beating in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the real estate market in Williamson County was booming. 

The top 10 homes in the county were all sold above $4 million — the owner of Bink’s Outfitters offloaded a home, Williamson County real estate investor Richard McAdams snapped up a place in Brentwood and the folks at Propst Realty Nashville nearly hit $10 million in the purchase of a Franklin property on Long Lane. 

Below are the top 10 homes sold in 2020 in Williamson County, ranked by sale price.

This 6,800-square-foot home is on 88 acres — a dream for someone looking for space inside and out. The property also includes a barn-turned-guest house — 3,440 square feet just for the visitors isn’t bad at all. The Colonial-style main house has four bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms and fire fireplaces throughout the home.

The 19,137-square-foot Franklin mansion, which Donna told NFocus was “built for parties,” is loaded with every amenity imaginable. Along with five bedrooms, six full bathrooms and six half baths, there’s also a 700-square-foot kitchen, a catering kitchen, a media room with theater seating, a racquetball court, a sauna, multiple bars (including one that features a built-in aquarium!), a koi pond and an infinity pool with a waterslide.

This Williamson County property, aka “The Farm at South Harpeth,” features an updated 4,387-square-foot farmhouse on 220 acres of sprawling woods that line the South Harpeth River. The land is described as “park-like” and photos show trails, streams, bridges and wild turkeys.

The four-bedroom home is outfitted with geothermal heating and cooling and it features more than 2,000 square feet of porches — both covered and uncovered. A nearby barn is outfitted with high-speed fiber internet

The seller is Brandon Binkley, founder and owner of Bink’s Outfitters, a local chain of outdoor equipment stores.

7. 4447 Long Lane,

Franklin, 37064

Buyer: Bethesda Road LLC

Sale price: $4.85 million

Seller: Kevin J. and Jana Kelly

Seller’s agent: Cooper Magli, Magli Realty

Buyer’s agent: Jennifer Bickerstaff, Compass Tennessee

This Franklin home has a whopping 130 acres included in the $4.85 million price tag. The property is home to a 10,600-square-foot brick home built in 2007, an in-ground pool and a guest house. But the listing’s focus was on the potential of the property. It’d “make an exceptional development opportunity,” it reads.

And that could be exactly what is in the works. Bethesda Road LLC sold four lots in Thompson Station’s The Mill at Bond Springs (at 4726 Bethesda Road) to builders including Hawn Custom Home Design, Celebration Homes, Woodridge Homes and Carbine & Associates. Will Bethesda Road turn these 130 acres, which lie east of the Ladd Park neighborhood and the Williamson County Ag Expo Park, into Franklin’s next residential community?

Seller Kevin Kelly appears to be an associate professor of plastic surgery at Vanderbilt Plastic Surgery.
