Headline Homes: December 2017

2512 Belmont Blvd.

Outdoor kitchens are in, and Nashville is out. Among Middle Tennessee’s top home sales in December, all of the top five come from Brentwood and Franklin. But the wait for a Davidson County property further down the list is worth it — a century-old Belmont Boulevard home made it in at No. 6. And just sneaking into the top 10, Nashville Predators defenseman Mattias Ekholm bought an “entertaining dream home” on Granny White Pike. Below are December’s top 10 home sales in Nashville and the surrounding counties, ranked by sale price.


1. 1704 Old Hillsboro Road, Franklin, 37069

Buyer: The Dogwood Trust

Sale price: $6.5 million

Sellers: John K. Reid and Jennifer E. Reid

Sellers’ agent: Laura Baugh, Worth Properties

Buyer’s agent: Tim Thompson, Tim Thompson Premier Realtors

Do you prefer a masterpiece of modern architecture or a classic Tennessee farmhouse? Tough choice, I know, but this 32-acre estate gives you the best of both worlds as it seamlessly combines the two styles — at least according to its listing.

2. 1454 Witherspoon Drive, Brentwood, 37027

Buyer: James S. Thompson

Sale price: $3.22 million

Seller: Mike Ford Custom Builders

Seller’s agents: Mary A. Kocina and Sherry Erickson, Fridrich & Clark Realty

Buyer’s agent: Jarod Tanksley, Brentview Realty Company

Construction on this seven-bedroom home concluded last month, just in time for its multimillion-dollar sale. In addition to eight full bathrooms and two half-bathrooms, the “unbelievable beautiful estate home” includes four fireplaces, a four-car garage and an elevator.

3. 1453 Witherspoon Drive, Brentwood, 37027

Buyer: Leo Family Trust and Timothy Dennis Fuller and Janis Dawn Fuller, trustees

Sale price: $2.7 million

Seller: Stonegate Homes

Seller’s agents: Mary A. Kocina and Sherry Erickson, Fridrich & Clark Realty

Buyers’ agent: Carrie Zeier, RE/MAX Elite

Located just across the street from the second Headline Homes entry in the Witherspoon subdivision, this 7,810-square-foot new construction was featured in Stonegate Homes’ 2017 Parade of Homes. Its backyard includes a covered porch, a fireplace and “plenty of room for a pool.”

4. 821 Windstone Blvd., Brentwood, 37027

Buyers: John K. Reid and Jennifer E. Reid

Sale price: $2.35 million

Sellers: Jonathan Huddleston and Amy Huddleston

Sellers’ agent: Aaron Holladay, RE/MAX Elite

Buyers’ agent: Laura Baugh, Worth Properties

The buyers of this “smartly designed” home have downsized, trading in the No. 1 home on our list for this one. (At 8,645 square feet, it’s actually larger than their previous abode.) The Reids will get to live like they’re on vacation, if the listing for this “modern luxury” home is to be believed.

5. 359 Jones Parkway, Brentwood, 37027

Buyers: John Andrew Kane and Colleen Ann Kane

Sale price: $2.25 million

Seller: Levin Family Trust (Jeffrey A. Levin and Margaret E. Levin, trustees)

Seller’s agent: Jesse Lee Levin, Benchmark Realty

Buyers’ agent: Melissa Chadwick, Ashton Real Estate Group and RE/MAX Advantage

The home has a “peaceful stream in backyard” and “100k in faux painting throughout home,” but the most exciting room is the velvet-lined theater room, which in the listing photos appears to be midway through a screening of the 1990 Robert Redford vehicle Havana.

6. 2512 Belmont Blvd., Nashville, 37212

Buyers: Jason Scott Reiser and Jeni Melinda Reiser

Sale price: $2.08 million

Seller: David Wayne Adams

Seller’s agent: Teddy Pins, Village Real Estate Services

Buyers’ agent: Suzan Hindman, Berkshire Hathaway Woodmont Realty

Though it sits on a relatively small quarter-acre lot, the Belmont Boulevard home squeezes two screened-in porches, a four-car garage, a media room and four bedrooms into more than 4,000 square feet. It was originally constructed during the William Howard Taft administration but has been freshly renovated.

7. 4508 Murfreesboro Road, Franklin, 37067

Buyers: Pradeep Agnihotri and Ranjna Agnihotri, and Ashok Mehta and Archana Mehta

Sale price: $2 million

Seller: Michael Ellsworth Inter Vivos Trust

Seller’s agent: Pam Klos, RE/MAX Homes and Estates

Buyers’ agent: Tera Orser, Reliant Realty ERA Powered

Now this one is something else. Situated on 41 acres, it includes pastures, several small barns and parking for a large tour bus. It also features a guest house for “the help,” an in-ground pool and split-rail fencing.

The new owner of this “entertaining dream home” will have an approximately 16-minute commute to Bridgestone Arena, where he makes a living as a defenseman for the Nashville Predators.

One of the new owners, Melissa Buhrig, was recruited to the area last year to be general counsel for Delek U.S. Holdings and Delek Logistics Partners.
