About Bill

My passion for traveling to Italy led me to transform this home into a beautiful country retreat in 1999. Every architectural element and the peaceful, secluded setting reminds me of Tuscan villas I've stayed in over the years, the simple life and a very sought-after living environment.

Bill purchased this house in 1999

Why Bill chose Tennessee

I chose to purchase this home because it has a secluded, country retreat setting and atmosphere yet extremely close to Franklin and Nashville. With 11 acres the property is ideal for privacy & seclusion yet within minutes of Nashville & Franklin. The architectural design elements inside and out remind me of coming home to a country retreat for some rest & relaxation

What makes this house unique

Situated on 11 acres, this home is ideal for entertaining. A stone exterior, castle like entry doors, gas lanterns, wood burning fireplace, Italian tile & furnishings, hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, outdoors decks, gardens and a park like setting make this property unique.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Keirstin and Ryan were so thrilled with the house. Thank you and Tammy for all you did to make it such a wonderful place. They told me about the flowers and chocolates and sparkling cider and how lovely it was with all the special touches. It will definitely be a weekend they will remember for the rest of their lives! We may rent it with some friends one of these days.

Beautiful hideaway! No need to leave the house!

  • 5 of 5

This place is simply gorgeous! We stayed here for a weekend with a couple of other couples. Bill was very attentive, personal and accommodating by calling ahead of my trip to ensure everything would go according to plan. This place is immaculate! I could've slept overnight in the screened porch and been just fine...I almost did if someone didn't wake me! Games were provided which was great for the kids that came to visit while in town. The grill didn't work, but Bill's dad stopped by to repair or replace it before we even knew it was inoperable. I love the layout of the home! We will definitely return here whenever we're visiting Nashville. It's close enough to enjoy the city, yet comfy and well-equipped enough to enjoy a night in.

Amazing Home in Beautiful Franklin, TN

  • 5 of 5

From the long beautiful drive-way, to the gorgeous kitchen, spacious bedrooms and 'oh my' that huge master closet, to the screened in veranda and not to mention that wonderful creek where we skipped rocks in the back yard, to say that this home is amazing is an understatement. We are eight ladies from California celebrating over 20 years of friendship and had spent two years planning our wonderful vacation to Nashville. The HomeAway site was very easy to use and when we saw the "Villa Toscana" in Franklin we knew we found our home away. Bill, (the owner) was very responsive to our questions and also quite nice. The whole experience was awesome and we had the time of our lives. Believe me you will not be disappointed if you choose this home.

An absolute gem in Franklin, Tenn.

  • 4 of 5

This is an absolutely perfect property for friends and families. The owners provide their guests with every amenity from garbage bags, 2 dishwashers and detergent, firewood for the indoor fireplace and outdoor pit, shampoo , conditioner, hair dryers, cocktail equipment, on and on. The master bedroom is gigantic . Other bedrooms are smaller but adequate, each with their own bath. A lively place to spend a few nights or more!
