"Meeting of the Waters"
|Heated Sq. Ft.||5,577|
History ofThe two story brick home was originally built by Thomas Hardin Perkins, who settled in Williamson County in 1800. It was completed in 1810 and "was one of the finest homes built in the county before 1830. It included Federal style detailing and is one of the oldest brick residences surviving in the county." The home is situated at the joining of the Big Harpeth River and the West Harpeth River hence the meaning of the name "Meeting of the Waters." The home is ideally set back on 18 private acres in Franklin, TN just minutes from downtown. It has been completely renovated with an updated kitchen and state of the art amenities all while remaining true to its historic ties. The wallpaper and carpets have been carefully replicated to represent furnishings of the early 19th century, along with the breathtaking gardens that have been reconstructed on a different side of the lot. The property also includes a charming log cabin guest house, vegetable garden, outdoor kitchen & a private gazebo overlooking the rivers.
Come take a step back in time and enjoy this wonderful piece of Tennessee history!
