Magnificent Lynnville Farm
Lynnville farm is a desirable and
magnificent farm with its gently rolling lush pastures and shaded woods set in
the loveliest part of north Giles County near the charming village of
Lynnville. Secluded yet close to the major throughways, just one hour from
Nashville, it offers a uniquely private and serene country living on an
enchanted landscape of just under 300 acres. A dreamy paradise of teeming wildlife, birds
singing and frog and cicada chants. It has two authentic log and horse barns,
along with sheds and other outer buildings, dating from the time the property was
part of vast working farm two centuries ago.
The beautiful home, well centered on the luxuriant greens, was
originally built circa 1855 and has been lovingly restored by the present
owners twenty years ago. The famed New Orleans's architect, Malcom Beard, when
designing the large addition, tastefully blended Greek Revival with
contemporary styles, maintaining the grace and elegance of the original square
rooms with their moldings, working fireplaces, tall windows, and yellow poplar
flooring. The highest quality materials and fixtures were chosen to compliment
the new part with the old. Walls of French doors and windows bring in the
gorgeous outdoor landscape and fill the house with light and airiness, offering
an incomparable and magical daily experience.
There are paths and trails for longs walks or riding horses in the
dappled shade of the trees of the fragrant woods on the outer hills of the
property. There is a spring fed pond where a Canadian geese couple returns
every year to bring up a new family and where deer bring their fawns.
The children and guest quarters as well as the primary suite are
on separate levels, offering privacy to everyone. All can reunite on the center
level where the public spaces flow freely, from the large open hall with the
open kitchen, to the dining room, to the more formal living room and library.
The inviting large screened porch provides quiet for reading or plenty room for
a celebration party from Spring to Fall.
