About Bill Carman

My passion for traveling to Italy led me to transform this home into a beautiful country retreat in 1999. Every architectural element and the peaceful, secluded setting reminds me of Tuscan villas I've stayed in over the years, the simple life and a very sought-after living environment.

Bill Carman purchased this house in 1999

Why Bill Carman chose Franklin

I chose to purchase this home because it has a secluded, country retreat setting and atmosphere yet extremely close to Franklin and Nashville. With 11 acres the property is ideal for privacy & seclusion yet within minutes of Nashville & Franklin. The architectural design elements inside and out remind me of coming home to a country retreat for some rest & relaxation

What makes this house unique

Situated on 11 acres, this home is ideal for entertaining. A stone exterior, castle like entry doors, gas lanterns, wood burning fireplace, Italian tile & furnishings, hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, outdoors decks, gardens and a park like setting make this property unique.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Keirstin and Ryan were so thrilled with the house. Thank you and Tammy for all you did to make it such a wonderful place. They told me about the flowers and chocolates and sparkling cider and how lovely it was with all the special touches. It will definitely be a weekend they will remember for the rest of their lives! We may rent it with some friends one of these days.

Just like the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

The place was very nice, neat and comfortable. The owners have great communication prior to arrival as well as labels and binders for information while you're at the house.Added bonus was a family of deer strolling across the lawn at dusk and gaggle of Canadian geese arriving the following morning to land in the little pond on the side yard.

Nice home with great potential but needs some TLC and better kitchen accessories.

  • 3 of 5

The AC vents were quite dirty especially the one in the master bathroom, which was totally clogged with lint and dust. The fireplaces did not work. There was not a decent knife in the drawer, we had to buy a couple at a local store in order to use the kitchen. For this price, this should not be the case. The pans were quite old, dirty and not in good shape. Lighting was poor with the lights above the cooktop did not work. Other bulbs over the dining table need to be brighter since we like to play cards at the table in the evenings.

We were disappointed, and would not stay here again.

Owner's Response: Jan, while we strive to offer every guest a 5 star experience and achieve that almost 100%, it appears that we could have made your experience more enjoyable. Your comments are appreciated and we will review the items and make adjustments where necessary. As for the fireplaces, we spoke about those the evening prior to your departure when you called and confirmed that the living room fireplace was fully functional including kindling, paper starter, and a full rack of firewood. While you reported having issues with the gas starter, which we agreed to investigate, we also agreed that was optional and wouldn't prevent you from starting a fire. With the unseasonably high temps we hadn't turned on the pilot light for the master bedroom gas logs for the season and I apologize for that. Thanks again for staying with us and we would welcome the opportunity to make things right during a future stay.
