Old Hickory Lake
Pre-Auction Offers Considered
Amazing Lakefront Home & Property for those who love elegance, entertaining and the outdoors – and of course water! The home is a unique custom design with almost 3,500 square feet. The location is incredible – a private cove on Old Hickory Lake.
Live your own private “Lake Life” with over 8 acres of abundant landscape (8.91 acres per new survey) to enjoy. This dream property is being made available under rare circumstances. For 20 years, this property has been known as – Blackhaven Wedding Gardens, a performance and event venue on Old Hickory Lake. The owners have retired and are building their “retirement home” on the adjoining property. Dozens of people over the years have commented, “if you EVER decide to sell this awesome property, PLEASE let us know!” If we only had their names today…
Blackhaven Wedding Gardens – famous for its picturesque, scenic French-styled gardens with stone paths among symmetrical plantings, ornate shrubs and trees, picket & wrought iron fences, statues, fountains and the reflecting fountain pool. Thousands of people have enjoyed the serenity and scenic beauty of these gardens. Now these gardens can be privately enjoyed by you, the new owner.
Located at the entrance of the incredible gardens is the 2,400 square foot event center / reception hall. This building actually boasts 2,434 square feet and can easily be converted to living space for a future “in law’s suite”, guest & family cottage or income-producing AirBnB, weekend getaway. Adjoining the building is a large, 20’ x 34’ patio adorned with a variety of pergolas. 
The home has the views you can only find in your dreams – a quiet and almost totally private cove on Old Hickory Lake! Awesome rear yard and water views from most every room in this custom home. The original home was constructed in 2001, but was expanded with a new master designed addition in 2018. This addition could easily be luxurious living quarters in itself boasting gorgeous hardwood floors, a gourmet kitchen w/ coffee, wine, bar, beverage station, JennAir grill, high-end appliances all surrounding a custom island. From the kitchen, step out onto the rear deck to enjoy time sitting, relaxing while enjoying views of the water. The kitchen is open to the dining room, open to the sunroom and open to the living room which is anchored by a stone fireplace all under a soaring beamed vaulted ceiling. I believe you have the idea – open and inviting! The designer definitely captured the property’s best views.
This new addition also includes a new Master Suite, with walk-in closets from both the bedroom as well as the master bathroom. One of these walk-ins can be used as a nursery, office or safe room. This portion of the home is open, airy, comfortable exuding the qualities you expect to find in a lakefront home. Custom finishes include granite tops, travertine tile, beaded board ceilings, wooden beams, hammered copper sink, and reclaimed wall boards from an old family home. The entire fresh, new addition is on one level, with access to the great outdoors at three different locations.
The original portion of the home features 2 bedrooms (either of which could be considered a master suite), each flanking the central living room with vaulted ceilings. Both bedrooms as well as the living room provide access to a balcony overlooking the rear yard and lake. Also on the upper level is an office and large den area with wet bar. There is room to add a 3rd bedroom to the upstairs level, should one be desired.
For those interested in water front properties, but not familiar with Old Hickory Lake, here is some information copied from the Old Hickory Lake website –
Located on the Cumberland River just northeast of Nashville, you will find plenty of Southern hospitality at Old Hickory Lake. With over 22,000 acres of water and 440 miles of shoreline, Old Hickory offers plenty of hiking, fishing, boating, skiing and other lake activities. Old Hickory Lake was named after President Andrew Jackson.
Lakefront property is in great demand. Situated only 15 miles from Nashville, (the Home of Country Music), many country music stars have made Old Hickory Lake their backyard.

The 25 pound world record walleye was caught here in 1960. Largemouth bass are the premier game fish on Old Hickory.
