Won’t You Be My Neighbor – Nashville, TN


By Eartha Kitsch

This week’s home is in my own town of Nashville, Tennessee and is a bit of a “I wish I could” post. I love the area where this house is and the style of this property is so great.



This property is located at 152 Carnavon Parkway. It has 4 bedrooms, 3 baths and is approximately 3,093 square feet. The home was built in 1964 and is listed at $379,900. It is being offered by Steve Manley of Exit Realty Music City.


Let’s take a look!

Okay…so this bathroom. Let’s talk about it because you might be gasping. Let’s study it. If the wallpaper were to be removed and replaced with a nice paint color, you’d be left with some great vintage fixtures. I think this bathroom could really be beautiful. Just picture the black wallpaper gone and replaced with color. Like I how I talked you out of that tailspin? My dedication to this house knows no bounds!


The Patio and Yard of my Dreams

Okay, so in the real estate listings for this house, there is unfortunately a lot of talk about “renovating” and “starting over” but in my opinion, you could remove the carpet and wallpaper and replace the updated ceiling fans and light fixtures with period fixtures – and have a serious 1960’s dream house! What do you think, readers? Maybe some great vintage colored appliances in the Kitchen to make those original cabinets shine? Did you see all of those built-ins? Can you imagine the fun stuff that could be showcased up there?

Dream on, Eartha, hon.

Oh well…. Join me again next week when we’ll tour another great time capsule home. Hopefully it will be one many states away so I won’t picture myself living there quite so much!

    That room that’s labeled a great room? I believe that’s a formal living room with dining on the side nearest the kitchen. The room that’s labeled living room is what we would call a family room from the 60s/70s. Guess the terminology changes with the centuries. They used to be called parlors.

    I could totally picture myself living here too! With just a few minor adjustments this place would be REALLY spectacular…and wow – that yard!

    Is that a sunken tub in the yellow bathroom?

    Can’t help but think about how much time would be required to maintain this very large house! Otherwise, it is a stunner.

    *pssst* … I kinda like the black wallpaper in that bathroom … just sayin’ …

    In other news, that starburst railing is totally to die for!

    The bathrooms are great, sans the black wallpaper. You’re right Eartha, it should be replaced with paint. Go wild with turquoise or pink? Or brighter wallpaper. The public rooms might look good with terrazzo floors. Nice house with lots of windows. Thanks for sharing.
