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.

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.

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.

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.
