Description

Travel back in time to bygone days. Belle Meade Farms restored Victorian home and 130 acres of rolling pasture and forest will take you far away from the bustle of the everyday to a more gentle, bucolic existence. Originally built in 1890, a Victorian-style addition expanded the home in about 1909. Lovingly restored and expanded again in the 1990s by the current owners, Belle Meades Victorian farmhouse is a historical gem. The owners have shared this remarkable home as a popular bed and breakfast since the restoration. With seven roof gables and many bay windows, the home in its current incarnation blends the newer owners quarters seamlessly with the original structure. The front portion of the home consists of a sitting room, formal dining room, and a main floor bedroom, with three additional bedrooms upstairs. The owners quarters, added to the back of the home, features a great room with kitchen and dining area, a separate commercial kitchen for the bed and breakfast, and an expansive owners suite upstairs. Come sit a spell on the covered front porch, perhaps with a cold glass of lemonade, and feel the slower pace of country living. Heading indoors from the cozy porch, you will find a surprisingly capacious two-story entrance hall with a grand staircase. The staircase is painted with a stunning, original faux bois finish and gracefully wends its way to the upper floor. Delightful details will meet your eye throughout the home, including original faux bois-painted doors and original moldings, mantles, and oak and heart pine floors. The high ceilings and ample windows give a light and airy feel. Each guest room has mountain views and an ensuite bath. The owners quarters encompass the back half of the home with convenient access to the guest areas both upstairs and down. The main floor great room enjoys two of the glorious bay windows and has a back deck that steps down to the pool area. This open-floorplan room has a kitchen at one end with locally made, custom cabinets and beautiful hardwood counters. One of the bay windows creates the dining area and the other is the sitting area. Between the two there is a stunning soapstone tulikivi wood stove, complete with wood-fired baking oven. Around the corner from the great room is a tiled garden room with a sliding door. This door leads to a small side porch under stately shade trees. On the upper floor, the owners suite mirrors the two bay windows of the great room. This abundance of windows, along with the high ceilings, creates a light and airy space. The suite looks out over the pool, pastures, and Old Rag Mountain beyond and includes a sitting area and a separate office/library. The owners bath features an extra-long walk-in shower and a clawfoot tub with a view of Old Rag Mountain. The convenient upper floor laundry sits between the owners quarters and the guest area of the bed and breakfast. The grounds present wonderful options for pleasant diversion, from a 60-foot swimming pool, a hot tub, and a sport court, to flower gardens, several pastures, and a riding ring. Up the hill there is a secret swimming pond complete with dock and ladder. The 130-acre parcel is approximately half open pastures and half forested. Continuing your exploration beyond the swimming pond will reveal a wooded trail leading up the mountain to a hidden spring bubbling out from between boulders. Heading back down, enjoy the expansive view from the upper pasture across Kilbys Creek and over Belle Meade Farms home, grounds, and stately old barns. This beautiful property is protected by a conservation easement, conferring peace of mind and a property tax break to its owner. The adjoining parcel - Belle Meade Schoolhouse and Cottage - is also available. Please see VARP2001452
