This Leipers Fork Country Home in Franklin TN located at 5418 Old Hwy 96 in the historic Village of Leipers Fork has a storybook setting. The house actually reminds you of something right out of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
As you wander up the private drive to the secluded home it's as if you are being transported through time. This country home is completely hidden from the road below. From the minute you see the house, you know it's not like anything else you've ever seen.
Built by renowned designer/builder, Bill Powell, the house enhances the beauty of the surrounding woods. Located on seven acres, the size of the home is deceiving at first glance. It appears to be a little cottage in the woods. Instead the home is 5,062 square feet with a living room, dining room, eat-in kitchen, three bedrooms and 3.5 baths in the main house and an additional guest suite above the two-car detached garage with a complete bath.
As you walk down the brick walkway toward the house and you hear the sounds of the bubbling brook, you are immediately comforted. Entering antique double doors, you are enveloped in warmth. The large windows let light flood into the house from the woods behind. This is the heart of the home.
Right away your eyes are drawn to the the large built-in entertainment center crafted from antique furniture. This is just one of the many unique features that will make you fall in love with this home. The wood burning fireplace provides warmth and beauty on cool fall evenings.
The dining room is flanked by columns and has crown moulding, wainscoting and a plate rack to display your collectibles. But the hand-painted rug on the wide planked floors is like nothing you've ever seen.
As you enter the gourmet kitchen, you fall in love with the custom cabinetry and hutch. Antique doors lead to the pantry, exterior screened porch and the laundry room right off the kitchen. The built-in nook is ideal for cozy family meals in the kitchen. From the hand-crafted pot rack to the antique headboard back splash, you know that each detail was meticulously planned.
The main floor includes a library with a hidden room. An ideal place to keep your work hidden from the eyes of your guests. The main floor master suite also has large windows allowing light to flood into the room. The master bath has a separate tub and shower, sitting area and two walk-in closets. It also provides access to the side deck made from cedars found right on the property. The wisteria in the spring provides a wonderful fragrance. The covered deck is large and is complete with a hot tub for complete relaxation.
The second floor has two large rooms currently decorated for a boy and a girl with private full baths in each. The boys room has a tower hide away high above with stunning views of the surrounding area. There is a bonus room between the two bedrooms, ideal for game night or a hide away for guests. The old-fashioned phone booth is another unique feature that children and visitors will love. The girls bedroom on the second floor has a built-in nook for overnight guests. The use of space and decorating are all part of the charm of this home.
The finished basement is a large space and is ideal for a recording or art studio. The hobby room on the lower level is currently being used as an exercise space but would be ideal for arts and crafts or as a sewing room. The basement also has a garage access making it perfect for a work shop.
The detached two-car garage has a guest suite above complete with its own full bath. The space is heated and cooled on a different system allowing you to turn that off when not in use. Keeping your utility costs down. But there are many uses for the space--from an office to an art studio.
This country home is located in historic Leipers Fork just minutes from the infamous Puckett's Grocery. Home to many country music stars, it's not uncommon to see Naomi or Wynonna Judd, Keith Urban and wife, Nicole Kidman or Vince Gill singing for one of the many events that take place in the Fork.
