Beautiful historic home with so much to offer in the home and the setting

This beautiful Greek revival home built in 1870 and on the National Historic Register is located 2 blocks from the square in Sparta TN. Every historic detail possible was preserved including gorgeous hardwood floors, artisan millwork, stone fireplaces and more. The home was updated totally in 2011 with new electric, plumbing, granite kitchen, etc. And renovated again in 2020 and will be available for showing by June 12.

Over 5700 SF of living space in this home including the separate annex built in 2000. There are 4 and possibly 5 bedrooms in the main house with potential for more in the annex. There is additional square footage in a 500 SF detached cottage on the grounds. Three bathrooms in the main house and a 4thin the annex.

There is an attached 4 plus car garage and 6 or more parking spaces on the beautifully landscaped 0.8 acre grounds. There is a large back deck and upstairs balcony to enjoy.

The annex offers great opportunities for a home business, a mother-in-law suite, a recreation room or whatever you imagine. Previously in 2016, the home was used for a successful bed and breakfast and was a great venue for events. YOUR imagination is the limit to the possibilities for this lovely home.

The 500 SF detached cottage has been pre-renovated. It had a bathroom and kitchenette when purchased in 2011 and those could be added back. Currently, it is wired for electricity with lighting and a ceiling fan so could be used for outdoor entertaining, a kid’s playroom, a hobby shop or ?.

History, charm, uniqueness, versatility and space galore are the hallmarks of this home. You just might fall in love with the home and with Sparta, a quiet and welcoming small town. Cookeville, TN, with a population of over 40,000 and a state university, TN Tech (which Money Magazine has declared the number one public university in the state), is about 20 miles from Sparta. Nashville, Knoxville, and Chattanooga, major cities in TN with international airports are about an hour from Sparta. So if living in a small town with progressive folks and just near enough but just far enough from large cities appeals to you, comes check this beautiful property out.

We would welcome you to Sparta, and to the beautiful Upper Cumberland with its four massive lakes within an hour of the home, outdoor activities galore, and celebrations of history, art, music and community which abound in the area.

Owner financing is available to deserving buyers with a large down payment.

Buyer’s agents are welcome and the standard buyer’s agent commission applies.

We are completing more renovations now and would love to welcome you to see the home after June 12. Our photos do not do justice to the charm and amenities of this home.

Oh by the way, there is no state income tax in TN which is just the icing on the cake in this beautiful area!
