About the property

I designed & rebuilt this house to be my finest work of livable art (to date). The working fireplace in the Living room is constructed of polished river stone. The ceiling beams & cabinets are of Wormy White Oak, finished in a custom 2 part stain, The Cherry Colonnade & Quilted Maple bean are an homage to the Arts & Crafts style of the early 20th century. The Kitchen is of Rustic Hickory.

The screened back porch(off the kitchen) is there to accommodate smokers, all else is non smoking. The front Porch looks out on hole number 7 of the Shelby golf course.

About A. Chris Keenan

Hi. I'm a former traveling music business sound engineer. I've been restoring old houses & historic buildings for a while now.

This is my personal house & I hope others can appreciate the time & effort I have dedicated to making this home a livable work of art.

I live in the neighborhood with my girlfriend & would be happy to answer, by text, any questions you have about the property & neighborhood.

A. Chris Keenan purchased this bungalow in 2007

Why A. Chris Keenan chose Nashville

Quiet, Very comfortable, yet close to the middle of everything East Nashville has to offer. Music, Fine Dining, Highbrow & Lowbrow fun. Five minutes from downtown.

What makes this bungalow unique

Walk to several nice restaurants, sit on either porch & relax.


Car: not necessary

This house was constructed in 1932 in the quiet little area of East Nashville currently know as 'Little Hollywood'.It's in a great neighborhood, close to downtown, and within walking distance to some great local restaurants and coffee houses.

Recommended - Very Nice

  • 4 of 5

The inside was very nice, very clean and comfortable. We were pleasantly surprised how nice the house was on the inside. The outside needs attention to the overgrowth of weeds/ landscaping. The house is in a very nice neighborhood and it is very easy to get to downtown Nashville. We loved it and would definitely stay here again.

Would stay here again!

  • 4 of 5

Great area to stay in. Safe neighborhood with some great places to eat. Easy to get an uber, and not too pricey, around $17. The house fit our needs. Loved being near the golf course.

May be helpful to install a fan in the bathroom. The one bedroom and the bathroom were a bit dusty, but the house was generally clean and cozy. Price of the stay was great!!

Inside was cute; outside was in desperate need of yard work and paint/repair/update of deck

  • 4 of 5

Pros: inside was tidy and clean (could use a deep dusting-blinds and ledges). Would help if there was a towel rack under cabinet over toilet.

Location to downtown was great.

Owner was great to work with and replied promptly.

Nice neighborhood with plenty of nice restaurants to choose from. Pomadoros was good!

Grocery stores were close.

Cons: get a hedge trimmer and have at it. You literally cannot see the house!! It would give the house curb appeal and bring more light into the house. Also if hedges were trimmed could use steps to side porch easier.

Didn't use screened in deck as it wasn't inviting.

Not sure how old the pictures were on VRBO.

Thanks Chris!

Powder Springs, GA

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Easy access to downtown and the East Nashville area appears to be a great up and coming neighborhood. Lot's to do and see within walking distance. Only issue we had was trying to figure out the shower head configuration. Other than that, a fantastic place to stay. Highly recommend.
