The home at 324 3rd Ave. S., is the quintessential Franklin home, within walking distance from downtown Franklin’s town square, shops, restaurants and more. Not only will you love being at home, you’ll also get to enjoy the small town atmosphere close to everything a larger Metro Nashville has to offer on a street that was listed in Forbes Magazine’s “Best Main Streets.”

Based on a map by DG Beers in 1878, the property is thought to have been owned by W. Mason. There is no documentation that this is the original home, but it appears that Mr. Mason owned two adjacent properties and that there is an existing building resembling the outline of what is believed to have been the original house.

The front of the home is a lovely southern design with a front porch perfect for early morning coffees or waving to neighbors passing by. Walking into the foyer, you will notice the original poplar wood floors and the new delicate chandelier. To the right, which was presumably the original living room, or receiving room, is now a beautiful Master en suite. A generous space with lots of light and an old fireplace that is begging to be restored to working order. The master bath has a new shower, separate tub and double sink, separate water closet and generous walk in closet.

To the left of the foyer is the home office. It was once the original dining room and is filled with light. From this room flows through a door that leads you to the main gathering space with easy access to a full bath and utility room. Once you walk into the open eating, living and kitchen space, you have all the modern comforts. The kitchen leads to the screened back porch that looks over the large and private fenced back yard, which is the envy of many residents living downtown!

Lastly are the “sunroom” area and secondary bedrooms. There are two rooms, and one with an additional space, perfect for a reading room, nursery or office. The sunroom features new carpet and a bath area featuring a claw foot tub.

This is an opportunity to invest in a little piece of history in a friendly southern town, featured in magazine, movies and music videos.

The home is being listed at $699,000.0 by Deborah Brophy and Leeann Kampfer with Keller Williams Realty. For more information on the home or to schedule a visit, call or email Brophy or Kampfer.
