Natchez Springs Farm
become more fertile you will find Natchez Springs Farm. Featuring 559 acres of
Middle Tennessee's most historic and finest land spreading across a pristine
valley bounded by Leipers Creek on one side and the Natchez Trace Parkway on
the other. Entering the
gates of Natchez Springs, the setting itself reveals the thoughtfulness of a
landowner who knows the value of a place for himself and for the life that
Within this 560-acre property, the placement of
ponds, maintenance of trails and management for wildlife create more of a
park-like setting than that of a working facility.
Natchez Springs was once a farm with horses. It
is said that the barn was the first in the area made of block and stands ready
with well-kept stalls and a full apartment. There are several miles of
on-property trails covered in hardwoods that lead past a pond, waterfall and
several cascading springs, which flow year-long.
The 6,058-square-foot home features spacious
rooms creating an easy transition throughout. On the main floor, an office den
with a fireplace leads to the master suite with fireplace, spacious bath and
walk-in closet. Opposite is a billiard room and formal dining room. At the
center of the home is a large kitchen with ample island seating and a table
leading to the expansive living room with a fireplace. There is a screened-in
porch with a fireplace and additional bedrooms and baths on the second floor.
Beyond the back porch, a large dock leads to a fully
stocked, spring fed swimming pond. An engineered waterfall flows in front of a
small cave and spring house and a walking fishing bridge lead back to the barn
Another pond which has a liner sits in the middle
of beautifully maintained pasture bordered by cattails and a grove of pines.
Above it, Firecracker Hill provides a place to
sit and view the valley below. At sunrise, low fog gathers around the road and
bottom land from the clear waters of Leiper's Creek. The commute of deer
retreating to the forest while turkey descend from their roosts sets the pace
for mornings here.
Natchez Springs Farm is a quiet place, set far
enough from the main road to lose the sounds of traffic - a welcome stillness
for those seeking a retreat from the steady tempo of city life. But it is only
a 35-minute drive to Franklin and an hour to downtown Nashville. It is a 20-minute
drive to the charming town of Leiper's Fork, which offers dining, notable
galleries and shops. Closer still is the scenic Natchez Trace Parkway- a
well-known thoroughfare to cyclists, equestrians and Sunday drivers.
