Escape to the woods at $2.85 million west Nashville home
Are you 10 minutes from the shopping and dining hubs of west Nashville or in a dreamscape of Norwegian hinterland? It may be tough to tell at 8548 Cub Creek Road, where an updated contemporary home awaits on 18 forested acres of property.
Built in 2000, the home is minutes from the amenities of town and the public boat ramps into the Cumberland, yet feels miles away, surrounded by a private wooded landscape. The 4,507-square-foot home is being listed for $2,850,000 by Chris Grimes, realtor at Corcoran Reverie, who loves the home’s special details, both aesthetic and technological.

“It’s a treat to have a home with such scrupulous attention to the details that differentiate a good home from a great home, and this home has special features not seen elsewhere,” said Grimes. “There is a Pelican water filtration system coupled with ultraviolet water disinfection and an HVAC system that conditions air with HEPA filtration, UV purification, and humidification. But the home also has the owners’ curated finishes from artisan tile makers, boutique lighting companies, and handmade shelving.”
Double front doors open into a foyer leading to a spacious vaulted great room on the main floor. The great room’s ceilings soar to 25 feet and 18 picture windows provide 500 square feet of light and woodland views. The room is anchored by a restored 1970s Majestic gas fireplace that gives off apres-ski vibes. Above, several Herman Miller Nelson pendants hang from the ceiling to illuminate the space after dark. The great room is the access point to the upper and lower levels of the home with two adjacent staircases.
Between the great room and the kitchen, the dining space features intricate and colorful handmade string chandeliers from France. A door offers outdoor deck access and faces the fully loaded kitchen. There are also double doors to the adjacent screened-in patio. The kitchen is brimming with elegant details such as Pushka luxury cabinet hardware, artisan Fireclay tile, and Rohl faucets, giving it a sleek and modern, yet welcoming look. Its Wolf Dual Fuel Range has been used less than a dozen times and there are two additional Bosch ovens. There are two Bosch dishwashers and a Sub Zero Refrigerator, while the kitchen island holds a thin wine fridge. A pass-through window to the screened-in porch makes entertaining easy. The kitchen also features a butler pantry with custom shelving by Adam Keefer, who did custom shelf work throughout the house, a Clé Tile backsplash, and a Manitowoc craft ice maker. Across from the butler pantry, a powder room is available for guests.
Each of the four bedrooms in the house are spacious and could serve as primary suites. One of them is located on the main floor, making the home ideal for multi-generational families. The main floor primary suite offers a door to an outdoor deck space and numerous windows for natural light and forest views. It has a walk-in closet and an en suite bath with dual vanities, a soaking tub by a frosted window, and a separate standup shower with contrasting black tilework.
Downstairs, a living space is ideal for teenage kids, long-term visitors, or has rental potential; it features a media room, access to a lower-level back patio connected to the recreation or game room, a separate laundry room with washer dryer and a kitchenette. The kitchenette features two wine fridges, a sink, ample counter space with geometric tilework backsplash, and custom shelving. A separate room can function as a bedroom or music room. The lower level bathroom features a single vanity sink and standing shower.
On the upper level, a bonus room at the top of the stairs is ideal for a reading nook, study space, or home office. Two spacious bedrooms – either of which could be a primary suite – feature en suite bathrooms and walk-in closets. In one of the bathrooms, you’ll find a front-loading washer and dryer, standing shower, and single vanity. The other bathroom features a dual vanity and a soaking tub with wooded views, in addition to a standing shower, and an original Carl Thore Le Monde hanging pendant lamp dating from the pre-Cold War era.
Outside, the upper and lower decks offer ample seating and dining configurations, with the main level featuring the screened-in portion of the deck and the lower level featuring hanging bucket chairs. Not far from the house, a large freestanding shed can house all the ATVs, watercraft, and other toys needed to enjoy the surrounding acreage and nearby water access. It could also act as an art studio.
No detail has been overlooked in the modernization and renovation of this home, designed as a wooded retreat with all the amenities.
