In this batch of July’s top homes, there were enough former and current pro football players to field a half-decent team. In addition to the sports-world ballers, there were regular ballers, too: The president of Nashville-based DET Distributing Co. tops the list, as he purchased an awe-worthy $3.25 million pad. Another buyer, one Mary McEniry McFerrin Silva, is listed only as “stockholder for nexAir, LLC.”
Below are the top 10 homes sold in Nashville and surrounding counties in July, ranked by sale price.
1. 4816 Post Road, Nashville, 37205

Sale price: $3.25 million

The high-dollarest house on this month’s list of homes was purchased by Fred Dettwiller, president of DET Distributing — the beverage distributor for Miller-Coors and PBR along with a host of local craft brewers. Although the house is flush with amenities — a screened-in porch with a fireplace, an indoor lap pool, a tennis court, a paneled library study and nine bathrooms — it took more than a year for this one to find the right buyer. (Maybe it just took that long to tour all nine lavatories and the three other fireplaces in addition to the one mentioned above.)

This “wonderful West Meade family home with lots of thoughtful details” includes multiple living rooms, a wine cellar and a home theater — not to mention an outdoor stone patio and a “party barn.” The 6,200-square-foot dwelling was on the market for only a little more than two months.
