Yes, this was recently a “Hobby Farm” and they called it – Dusty Tails Miniature Donkeys! And I must add – Prize-Winning! It was in 2004, the barn was added to support the growing miniature donkey hobby farm and business. But it wasn’t long after, the musician in the family converted the barn into his Recording & Rehearsal Studio where his gang, I mean BAND, spent many hours fine tuning their craft and performance…and having more FUN than they should have! Then 2020 came… and live music performances, along with most other social activities, ceased. SHE took over the awesome space and turned it into her Yoga Studio. The barn, turned studio, measures 30’x30’. Just imagine the many possibilities and uses for this special space on the farm.
The residence is a one-level, 4 bedroom, 2 bath, mid-century classic Ranch style home. Currently, the home has an “apartment”, or in-law / guest suite, that features a one bedroom, one bathroom, den and kitchenette, with access to one of the best features in the home – the screened porch! The screened porch provides one of the most scenic views across the shaded front lawn to the creek.
The home could easily be used as two separate living quarters or altogether – and all on one level. The owners did some extensive remodeling throughout the home approximately ten years ago including: the metal roof, kitchen remodel, flooring, screened porch, new windows, and more.
If you chose to enter the front door (friends use rear door), you will enter the foyer and the living room / den. Your attention cannot avoid the most unusual wall covering – mahogany wood panel squares covering an entire wall. The fireplace is in the center of this wall. The design of the mahogany wood panels is definitely a feature tying this home to mid-century modern. Through the years, no owner could bring themselves to removing or changing this truly unique, and “one-of-a-kind” design element.
History Note: The famous Maxwell House Hotel, built in 1859 in downtown Nashville, TN, suffered its first fire on June 4, 1958. The fire caused extensive damage and required remodeling throughout the historic hotel. During the remodel, mahogany wood paneling was removed from the walls of the hotel. Many of these panels were saved! Some of the mahogany panels were used in a new home being built in Fairview… you guessed it – 7311 Forrest Glenn Road – this very home!
As you leave Forrest Glenn Road and enter the concrete drive of this property, you will stop to view the park-like setting – especially to the right (west) of the drive along the creek. The wooded lawn with its mature hardwoods creates a vista worthy of the pause and admiration. Before you continue, take note of your two new nutty friends welcoming you to their place – the “Twin Walnut Trees” - forming nature’s own entry way. These two walnut trees are mature, but are dwarfed by comparison to their much older and larger relatives scattered around the lawn. There is no doubt the older walnuts were present when the old log home rested on this same location in the late 1800’s.
Pull alongside the detached garage and park. You cannot help but envy the “4-Board Plank Fencing”! My first thought was “I wish I had this exact fencing around my property.”. (Those miniature donkeys got the best surroundings!) Gaze due west to the far end of the property. The tree line you see is the boundary line and the creek. This is one of the rare properties where EVERY SQUARE YARD of acreage is usable. Most of the acreage is fenced. One of the neighbors had used the pasture for his horses for many years.
Can you envision an orchard, grape vines, or fruits and vegetables? The owners have enjoyed many seasons of growing vegetables and flowers from their gardens. An endless supply of fresh spring water for the home, a well to supply water for the gardens, livestock and other animals and a year-round creek that borders the 8.6 acres provides all the water this small farm requires. This property could be a “self-sustaining” farmette with the addition of solar panels for electricity – everything you need to live comfortably “off-the-grid”, if that is what you desired.
For most, this park-like setting is ideal just as it is! The location is highly desirable - conveniently located just outside the corporate city limits of Fairview but well within a short drive of schools, parks, shopping, dining, healthcare, churches and major transportation access – in Williamson County, TN. Fairview boasts of one of the largest city parks in the state of Tennessee – a nature park featuring over 700 acres of forest, lakes, 17 miles of trails. There is something for everyone from bicycling, horseback riding, fishing, running, walking to finding solace within nature.
If working from home is something you desire or require, this location provides high-speed Internet options, and of course one of the most scenic environments for the occasional “get out of the office breaks to walk around the farm.”  You will not have to walk far from the house to enjoy the "LABOR OF LOVE" Ms. Eva has passionately enjoyed for many years - her flower beds!  Bulbs mixed with perennials will present a scenic display of colors only Mother Nature with the owner's caring touch can create.

Everyone absolutely loves the outdoors - the spring, the creek, the yard filled with century old Walnut trees.  But we must return to the home and complete our visit to the Forrest Glenn Farm in Williamson County.

We enter the rear door, from the open sitting deck (and occasional outdoor grilling session) - yes, FRIENDS enter from the back of the home!  It is hard to identify what "feature" catches your eye first (there are several)...original oak floors, the original knotty pine wall paneling, now painted the trendy gray, original wood-burning fireplace, now converted to gas logs, custom draperies, or the truly one-of-a-kind mahogany wood panel wall (remember Historic Maxwell House Hotel salvage!)  I know it is a lot to take rush, take your time.
Step into the recently remodeled kitchen - granite countertops, original cabinet boxes with new custom doors and drawers, built-in pantry with sliding doors, bar-top pass thru, cook top and separate wall oven.  The kitchen appliances do remain.

Why an auction? In today's market, too many buyers are missing out on their dream home because the traditional system is not allowing them to make an offer, and then continuing the process by raising their offer until they "win".  Buyers make an offer - ABOVE LIST PRICE - only to learn their offer has been rejected and outbid by another.  They are provided an opportunity to raise their offer.
With the online auction process, bidders bid until THEY decide they no longer wish to do so!  The entire process is 100% transparent - view the current bid at any time.
Opening Bid: $425,000.00
Bidding Ends Tuesday, April 19th at 6pm
Terms: $10,000 down at the time a contract is established with the balance due in 30 days.

NO CONTINGENCIES in the purchase agreement.

The sellers have already purchased another home and will not accept any contract other than a "no contingencies" purchase agreement.
