Step back in time as you walk across the threshold of 714 Russell Street and enter the elegant foyer of this gracious historic home that has housed a former Mayor and a Civil War Major.

This classic home boasts original millwork, three coveted pocket doors with authentic detail left untouched. 11.5 foot ceilings downstairs and gorgeous hardwoods add to the old-world charm. You will quickly understand why this home was once repurposed as the temporary Governor’s mansion.

A partially finished basement runs the entire length of the home offering the potential for nearly 1,800 square feet of additional living space. Likewise, in the rear of the home a bricked, three-car garage boasts another 800 approximate square feet on the second story, plumbed and wired, for a multitude of uses.

Past and present collide in the historic Edgefield neighborhood where the architecture evokes memories of Nashville days gone by, while the surrounding streets have evolved into one of the city’s most sought-after communities. Award-winning restaurants, beautiful green parks, a vibrant nightlife and a brand new two-story Turnip Truck grocery store are all within steps of the front door.

As you exit this extraordinary home, stop and listen to the extra large wind chimes tinkling in the breeze, their song adding another note to the home’s lore.
