Nashville is growing quickly. Everywhere you look, old houses are going down and new builds are sprouting up. And while I'm certainly a lover of the contemporary, I so appreciate people who choose to renovate — who take the time and the care to transform these old storied spaces and give them that meticulous soul and warmth they're so deserving of. These are the homes that are truly original — they feel welcoming and distinct, and help keep our community mindful of its very endearing roots. 

The Russell property is a dream space. It's an 1876 Dutch Renaissance home, packed with 5,500+ square feet of stories and thoughtfulness. Curved-glass bay windows. Marble counters. A 3-story open staircase that feels timeless and romantic. Allard Ward Architects and Dave Haverkamp — the home's shepherd and visionary — really outdid themselves on this one.

Take a peek below at the final product, staging care of our sister company The Conley House. All art care of (and available for purchase through) our favorite gallery, Red Arrow Gallery.

And if you're interested in the space, contact Keith Merrill or Jonny Gleaton. Then promptly invite me over. Wine's on me.
