5747 Garrison Rd

This month’s rundown of the top residential sales in Williamson County features some interesting names in the buyer and seller blocks.


There’s a smattering of anonymous trusts — they could be anybody! — but also a former Titans running back and a current (and former) oil company executive.


Modern farmhouses appear to be the hottest selling style of the month, though there’s the necessary entries from Laurelbrooke, Annandale and The Governors Club, as well.


What follows is the top five homes sold in Williamson County in February, ranked by price.


1. 5747 Garrison Road, Franklin

Buyers: Lawrence and Bonita Lineker

Sale price: $5.725 million

Seller: Greg Gaddy

Seller’s agent: Richard B. French, French King Fine Properties

Buyers’ agent: Kindy K. Hensler, Village


Built in 2017 on property formerly owned by Wynonya Judd, this 9,400 square-foot “modern farmhouse” on nearly 17 acres includes all the smart-home upgrades, geothermal heating and a “sumptuous” master suite.

Outside, there’s an infinity edge pool surrounded by “outdoor living rooms” and covered terraces. 


Buyer Larry Lineker is an executive vice-president at insurance firm HUB International. As a couple, the Linekers are prolific real estate investors. Seller Gaddy is a Washington, D.C.-based real estate agent.


2. 1606 Whispering Hills Drive, Franklin

Buyer: Whispering Hills Trust, Julia Alley, trustee

Sale price: $2.799 million

Seller: Demarco Murray

Seller’s agent: Erin Taylor-Douthett, Compass Tennessee

Buyer’s agent: Heather Sisemore Warmbrod, The Wilson Group


Former Tennessee Titans running back Demarco Murray sells his Laurelbrooke home to a trust using the clever name Whispering Hills Trust.

With exteriors evoking the French countryside, the 9,600 square-footer includes a top-flight home theater with a 110-inch screen and a 4K projector. Each of the home’s four bedrooms includes a private bathroom, and there are two laundry rooms. Outside, a covered patio with built-in grill overlooks a pool with a fountain.


3. 611 Fair Street, Franklin

Buyers: Kenneth Cohen and Darcie Bundy

Sale price: $2,712,500

Seller: Sarah Lisa Palmer

Seller’s agent: Bill E. Henson, SilverPointe Properties

Buyers’ agents: Marsha Simoneaux and Tami Siedlecki, Fridrich & Clark


In the Hinchleyville neighborhood of downtown Franklin (and “just one block from Starbucks at Five Points,” per the listing) is another “modern farmhouse.” The quarter-acre lot is zoned for both office and residential and, at 7,500 square feet, why not both? Also included is a 676 square-foot carriage house which has potential as an office, apartment or short-term rental property.


The fully-finished lowest level is designed as a “recreational space” with its own kitchen and wine room.


Kenneth Cohen is the vice-president for government affairs at ExxonMobil. Darcie Bundy is the retired, but was the manager for public and government affairs at pre-merger Exxon.


4. 9292 Exton Lane, Brentwood

Buyers: Ryan and Dana Crowley

Sale price: $2.3 million

Seller: David Eric Mitchell

Seller’s and buyer’s agent: Meredith Garrett, Synergy Realty Network


The top Brentwood sale in February comes out of Annandale, where this “perfect 10” sits on an acre backing to farmland.


The home includes four fireplaces, a four-car garage and “a cozy screen porch with chef's kitchen.”


Seller Eric Mitchell is the president and co-founder of Benefit Leader and former chief marketing officer at Addiction Campuses.

Buyer Ryan Crowley is the vice-president of investments at Healthcare Realty.


5. 46 Governors Way, Brentwood

Buyer: 46 Governors Way Trust, Brian Shelton and others, co-trustees 

Sale price: $2.299 million

Sellers: David and Carol Lindsay

Sellers’ agent: Judy Williams, Parks

Buyer’s agent: Leigh Ann Emerson, Pilkerton


Wrapping up this month’s list is the latest sale in Governors Club, this one on “possibly the most beautiful lot” in the tony subdivision, tucked behind the 18th tee.


The home — once featured in Nashville Lifestyles — has walnut floors throughout, a “gorgeous great room” with “sweeping windows.”
