December saw more listings out of Williamson County than Davidson County — a somewhat unusual if not necessarily surprising development. The list of top sales also included more older homes and newly built homes than usual — a Victorian house built in 1881, an abode built in 1955 in Hillwood, a 1929 home with some major renovations and a couple of houses built in 2016.
Below are December’s top 10 home sales in Nashville and surrounding counties, ranked by sale price.
