1070 Meeks Cemetery Road in Burns, TN – Just WOW!

Every time I have the good fortune of offering a house for sale, I give the owner a homework assignment.

I ask them to tell me EVERYTHING:

  • Why did THEY buy THAT house years ago?
  • What features do they like/enjoy the MOST about the house?
  • What improvements have they made to the house since buying it?
  • What special features are in the house that the average Buyer can’t see?
  • Why are they moving?
  • Who are the neighbors and what goes on in the neighborhood?
  • Tell me your story about living in this house

Every Seller does this for me, and some are more comprehensive than others.

 The Owners of 1070 Meeks Cemetery Road have done such a magnificent job with their homework (and telling their story), I can’t help but present this house (mostly) in THEIR words.

Think of ANY in-home activity you can imagine, and this house a space for that . .  all masterfully designed into a very efficient 3400 Square Feet.

  • Low Res LotLot description: The home sits high on a sloping acre lot with a wooded dry creek through the lower rear portion of the property (the creek does run during downpours / when the upstream pond overflows). The property adjoins an undeveloped wooded acre lot on the lower side and another but smaller home built by the same builder on the upper side. The rear of the property, beyond the creek, slopes upward and connects to an undeveloped wooded pasture. The front of the property faces a wooded area which has a smaller home snuggle behind. Thus, the home has a high serenity setting and the flat ground near the dry creek invites lounging in a hammock or cozying up to an outdoor fire. Deer, wild turkey, and birds of all kinds frequent this area. The scenic and serenity address provides reasonable access to West Nashville via I-40, Franklin via Hwy 96 & I-840, Fairview via Hwy 96, Dickson (5 miles), and Burns (3-4 miles).
