About Jamie Parsons
Hello! I'm Jamie, a Los Angeles native with a country heart. Ever since going to a family farm in South Dakota at 8 years old I have dreamed of owning a place where I could keep a couple horses, have some land, a gorgeous country view, a large front porch, and most of all, a place where I could host holidays and gatherings for all my family and friends. In Los Angeles I had spent years buying and remodeling or rebuilding homes. It was my passion, along with writing. Then the kids came, three of them, and they became my passion, along with writing. The kids are now 18, 17, and 12 and it was finally time to find my dream home. The kids and I enjoy spending time there as much as we can. My little one caught 34 fish in one day in the pond! My son loves to work around the yard in a skid steer and my middle daughter, well she loves having her friends over to hang out her pink "glamour" room. Me? My favorite things to do at the house are to sit on the front porch with my morning coffee and read, take my notebook out to the pond and write while listening to the frogs and cicadas sing, and to have a friend or four over for a glass of wine and watch the sun drop behind the mountain, and see the fireflies come to life out on the grass. I still pinch myself when I'm there. This home is an ongoing dream come true and I get such great pleasure out of sharing it with guests. I truly hope you feel the same magic I feel every time I drive up that gravel drive. Cheers! Jamie

Why Jamie Parsons chose Franklin
Back in 2008 I came to Nashville for the first time to help my best friend look for a house. The real estate agent took us on a full day house tour from Nashville to Leiper's Fork and every stop in between. At the end of the day I told my friend, "I'm going to live in Leiper's Fork one day." On my journey here I made pit stops for a couple of years in the Gulch and Oak Hill, but always had my eye on Leiper's Fork. So I waited, patiently, (sometimes not so patiently but I still waited) and searched for my perfect property. When I saw that big blue house perched up on the knoll there wasn't a doubt in my mind that this was it. It has my ideal location, close to the village but off the main road. The trees surrounding the pond still mesmerize me, I can sit and stare at them like a new parent does with their newborn. I love the barn and plan to get a couple horses come Spring. The kitchen, the porch, the great room, pretty much every part of the home is everything I was looking for and more. That's why this property.

Everything about the Big Blue House is awesome! The house is exactly as described the property is gorgeous. I would highly recommend staying here.
The entire experience, from start to finish and every detail in between, was simply magnificent. We were swept away - by the grounds, by the entire property, and by the feeling that this idyllic world was ours, all ours. The house and property are elegant, gorgeous, and breathtaking; but but they are also warm, comfortable, and as relaxing as can be.
All involved made the experience extremely easy - from dealing with any questions or requests to a shockingly easy and guest-friendly check-out procedure.
We recommend this experience to anyone. We wish we could start all over and go back right now!
Great home to gather family and friends
This property was so beautiful. When we were searching for a home to accommodate our large family, the pictures were beautiful but not as amazing as it was to see in person. The communication was very timely, very clean and spacious, and more amenities than anticipated. We would rent this home again. Great memories made at The Blue House!!
The Big Blue House was magical!!!
I held a creative retreat here the beginning of May and it was magical!! The house is just amazing with so much room. I did a lot of cooking while we were there and the kitchen worked very well. Both the indoor and outdoor tables were wonderful and had plenty of room for the 12 of us to sit and eat as well as hang after the meal. The view from the front porch as well as the view of the pond in the back sitting room were my favorites!! We will be back and can't wait to choose our dates to return. Thanks so much Jamie for allowing us to enjoy this VERY special place of yours.....Blessings!!!
Amazing Birthday Weekend
My family, friends and I had the BEST weekend at the Big Blue House. The decor is beautiful and stylish...the home is comfortable....the beds were great! We loved sitting out on the deck and by the firepit. We can't wait to stay again!
