This is another entry in a series of posts titled “open house” in which we offer photographic tours of selected projects.

There seems to be an innate relationship between man and earth. Observe any given little boy digging in the dirt with a stick and that unspoken affair is evident. Alas, a number of these boys grow up, get educated, polished and thrust into concrete jungles to begin their industrious climbs. After a while, some of these successful businessmen grow a stirring in their soul and they soon begin to hear the loamy call of the soil.

This property is a built result of one of those yearns. Situated on beautiful acreage twenty minutes outside of Nashville, Tennessee, this “gentleman’s farm” (a recent term for places where this man/earth phenomenon is unmistakably on display) consists of two agrarian inspired buildings. One is a large working barn, the other a pond-sideled guest house. Both were furnished in the best of rural-chic.

The boy may have matured over time but the heart-tug of the land is never forgotten. Sticks have been replaced by horses, tractors and boutique crops. What a beautiful luxury to have a place for weekend adult dirt-play!

By the way, this particular one is currently on the market. You’ll find the listing here. BYOB (bring your own boots).

    Stunning! The ultimate gentlemen’s or women’s farm.

    Yes, Timi, agree. I’m a woman and have always been drawn to dark wood, leather, wrought iron, stone and natural accents. There’s not an inch of toile in my home!

  6. Very lovely! says:

    Could you please tell me what the 10th picture from the bottom is? What kind of room is it? It’s hard to tell with just one picture or angle.

    Thank you,
    jj
