Spring homebuying season has been so frenzied that Nashville Predators star Viktor Arvidsson’s purchase last month of a $1.975 million home near Cheekwood Botanical Gardens didn’t even crack April’s list. One anonymous trust, registered to a regular business manager for music and film stars,…

Famed singer-songwriter and last week’s Scene cover boy John Prine told us he recently bought a new home — one not so close to the Home of the Stars tour stop at his neighbor Kellie Pickler’s place. “A place with space for more antique cars,” he said. Purchased for a mere $2.6 million, Prine…

In August, every house on the Headline Homes list sold for more than $2 million. For most of us, that’s obviously a lot of money, but the average square footage wasn’t what you might expect for a figure that high. Square footage of 7,000 is pretty normal for Headline Homes, but in August, ma…

In May, Gov. Bill Haslam’s niece once again topped the Headline Homes list — only this time it was for a sale rather than a purchase. Meharry Medical College’s CEO bought a $2.2 million home on Woodmont Boulevard, and Bob Doyle — Garth Brooks’ manager — also sold his Nashville home.

Only one home in January’s list of top home sales sold for more than $2 million — compared to December, when half the list topped that mark. A president and CEO of a renewable energy company bought a home from another renewable energy company’s CEO, and the CEO of Vanderbilt University Medic…

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…

Most of the Headline Homes we see include a whole lot of house and not that much property — think an acre almost entirely filled with home — but this month’s list saw two homes with huge lots: one property at more than 90 acres and another almost doubling that. November also included a purch…

This month’s list of top Nashville-area home sales includes a purchase by bluegrass legend Earl Scruggs’ grandson Jesse Earl Scruggs, who is a cardiovascular anesthesiologist at Saint Thomas Health, a sale by an actor on TV’s Nashville and a new home for the family who lost their home to a h…

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-wort…

June made for one of the more interesting Headline Homes months in recent memory. The list starts and ends with forays into faraway places never before mentioned in this august catalog of high-end property. In between, the homes are all in Nashville — save one new build in Franklin.

It was nearly a clean sweep for Nashville in September's list. The top seven — and eight of the Top 10 — sales were in Metro (and one of the two Williamson County homes is oh-so-close to having to pay property taxes in Davidson County).

Headline Homes always has its fair share of Williamson County entries, though there’s typically a healthy balance of big buys on both sides of Old Hickory Boulevard. But this month, Metro got dominated by its wealthy neighbor. One block in Brentwood had nearly as many entrants as the whole o…
