Property Overview

LARGE PRICE REDUCTION! Please finish our dream.... My wife and I purchased this historic property to refurbish it back to its original character and then possibly run it as a bed and breakfast. My wife got ill and we are now in a position to have to sell the house and move elsewhere, but hope that someone will share and complete our vision. This is your chance to own a part of rich Tennessee history in one of the most thriving and prospering areas in the country with history based in music, horse racing, civil war and many other interests. The house was originally built in 1893 by the O'bryan family who were the original developers of the duckhead clothing brand and contributed greatly to the growth and charity of Nashville Tennessee. On top of the amazing mix of cottage and antebellum design there is even the traveling circuit preachers house from the years of the traveling preacher, that sits about 80 feet from the back patio and back patio door. I have even designed and built a matching carriage house that is capable of having 2 additional rooms, shop and amazing office overlooking the property. This amazing property is Positioned 30 minutes North of Nash-Vegas, and the booming excitement of all the honky tonks and nightlife down on Broadway in Nashville and 20 minutes South of the Kentucky Line, this house sits at the highest point between Atlanta and St. Louis in the little town of Ridgetop Tennessee and is also listed on the Tennessee Historic Registry. Your customers would have access to everything the area has to offer from the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, Nashville Antique Shopping, Bridal Trips, Hiking, Historic Home Tours, The Corvette Museum and so much more.

Owners Quarters

A very unusual and creative mix of cottage architecture with antebellum flare which has been completely refurbished with a amazing master suite commercial kitchen, 2 historic bedrooms, den or family room, parlor, formal dining, screened and wrap around porch leading to a garden patio with outdoor fireplace. The preachers house sits 80 feet off of the patio with its original historic design, full private bathroom and everything you need to explain the traveling circuit preacher from the turn of the century. The new Amish built carriage house which was designed to complete the full picture of the original property, has a 3/4 bath private, office space, shop and 2 private rooms to be used as additional guest rooms or meeting space. Almost 3 acres of 150 year old trees and landscaping with circle drive in front and private parking in the rear of the house. House has all new plumbing, heat and air, electrical, new roof and tons of upgrades, including a private dog run with dog wash and plenty of room for pet guests as well. Over the last 10 years the house has been used as a venue for many parties, weddings and gatherings, with more than enough space inside and out for anything that might be of interest to the new innkeepers. The property sits 500 feet above the nations longest freestanding in use Train Tunnel which causes no unnecessary vibrations or sounds due to it historically being hand dug through solid slate and limestone between the years of 1898 and 1902. Amazing history is all documented with ties to the civil war, Abraham Lincoln, Duckhead Clothing, The Nashville O'bryan Center (Charity Organization) and even has a full room designated about the house in the Local Ridgetop Museum. House is full of collectable period antiques, which are all negotiable with the sale.

Business Summary

My wife and I have spent the last 10 years refurbishing this house to its original decor and glory, but have yet to actually open it up as a running bed and breakfast. The last several years have been riddled with health issues and a slower process to the remodeling vision, but now is pretty much ready for customers of all kinds.

Reason for Selling

Health issues and having to relocate.
