About this listing
Our renovated 50's era home in East Nashville has its own 3/4 acre lake in the front yard. Your room opens on to a deck where you can sit and enjoy our private little park only 3.5 miles from downtown.
Our home is situated on 2 acres but in an urban neighborhood. We are 3 1/2 miles from downtown and about a mile from 5 points, located in the historic Lockeland Springs neighborhood. East Nashville has so many great restaurants that you really don't have to leave this part of town, and several popular ones (Two Ten Jack, Wild Cow, Rosepepper & Jeni's Ice cream) are within a mile. We are close to I-24 and Ellington Pkwy which allow you to go just about anywhere in Nashville in about 20 minutes. And are also only minutes from Titan Stadium. We are also permitted by the city.
Your room has a private entrance and it's own private bath but we also have a lovely screened in porch that is a great place to just chill if you'd like to join us. The porch also has a fireplace that allows use of the porch except on the most bitter winter days. We have lots of places outside to sit and just enjoy doing nothing. Your room has a flat screen TV, a desk/dressing table and a small fridge, microwave, toaster oven and coffee maker for your convenience with basic breakfast needs. Limited use of the kitchen is okay, just leave it tidy when done. We can accommodate two very comfortably. We have a washer and dryer that you can use as well as an iron and ironing board. We also have a Pack'n'Play if needed. Just let one of us know and we will show you where everything is located.
Interaction with Guests
We love sharing our home and will interact as much or as little as you like. We share our home with our terrier Louie who barks at anyone coming in, including us. Our African Grey Koko aka our alarm clock, he can be very entertaining and you are welcome to visit him but be aware, if you hear the phone ringing or the dog barking continuously, it's Koko. He even fools us. He will rarely talk in front of you and please know he does bite, even people who live with him.
Our 50's era neighborhood is a short walk to the greenway that runs along the Cumberland River. Our home is located behind Shelby Park where you can fish for trout, play a round of golf or go for a bike ride or a hike and it's all within walking distance. We get many walkers and runners going by because of the lake and it is a friendly and safe neighborhood.
There is a bus stop 3 blocks from our home that can connect you to downtown. We have parking for several cars at our home but the one closest to the sidewalk is reserved for our guests. If you want information on any of the attractions in the area, please ask and we can share with you what we know about them.
No smoking of any kind in the house please. We are both pretty laid back people and other than the smoking we only ask that you respect our home. Please park your car in the side parking area so that it doesn't block the garage.
We are from South Florida and the Bahamas originally. We moved to Nashville after selling our architectural stained glass business in 2000. In 2001 we found our dream property and we knew we could remodel the house into our dream home, which we did in 2008. We enjoy having friends and family over on a regular basis for dinner, wine on the porch or just chatting. We travel when we can but when you live in a park its really hard to leave.
