Howard and I have been married over 22 years. I grew up and spent most of my life in Franklin until we married in 1990. After living in various parts of the country, we returned to our beloved Franklin. As a teen, my best friend's father owned a corn field which is now Cool Springs Mall. A lot has changed over the years, but one thing has remained...my love for Franklin. As one of the best places to live in America, Franklin offers a tremendous variety of luxurious shopping to touring Civil War Battlefields. I know your stay in Franklin will be enjoyable. Howard and I both hope you will love Green Gables as much as we do.
While we enjoy investing in the real estate market in Tennessee, this home is our favorite. We are three miles from the interstate and only four miles from downtown Franklin. Many parades have marched down Main Street with festivals for every season. Our newly rennovated theatre offers current movies and music events every week. However, if you enjoy privacy and tranquility, we are located on 6+ acres, yet you can be in Nashville in 25 min. It's the best of both worlds!
Sitting on the front porch offers a view of the pond with turtles, ducks, geese, turkey, and deer...a nature lover's dream. We talk to the deer in our soft voices and have counted as many as 20+ in our side yard. Morning and afternoon walks are a must with camera in hand. We also have beautiful birds building nests everywhere on the estate so bring your binoculars! Whether you enjoy your coffee at home or in the nearby coffee shop, you will love this beautiful home and this historic town called Franklin!
