The home for sale at 1261 Lewisburg Pike sits just five miles from downtown Franklin and less than a mile from Berry Farms and I-65, but it feels more rural than the address might lead you to believe.
While it's a beautiful, custom-built home by Stone Ridge Custom Homes, it’s the property and outdoor amenities that make this a rare and unique home. Situated on just over 10 acres, the property features a 3.75-acre spring-fed pond with two fountains, a waterfall and is full of fish.

The couple who purchased the property in 2017 demolished the home that originally sat at the edge of this beautiful pond and worked with 906 Studio Architects to design a home that would fully maximize the views of the water. Construction began in September 2019 and is wrapping up now, with only a few exterior touches such as landscaping remaining to be completed.
Originally planning to live in the home, the couple instead decided to list the 7,278-square-foot home earlier this month for $6.8 million.
The five-bedroom home features two main floor master bedrooms both fronting the pond as well as three additional bedrooms upstairs. The home also features a large, screened-in porch facing the water with an outdoor kitchen and fireplace.
Above the three-car garage is an 800-square-foot space that can be finished out for an office, apartment or additional living space with its own entrance from the back of the house. The home’s kitchen is large with an oversized island with bar seating, a handmade tile backsplash Wolf appliances and a pantry that is TikTok worthy with its abundance of drawers and cabinetry with a rolling ladder to access it all.
The home is listed by Alice Charron with Keller Williams Realty. She can be reached by calling 615-714-6121.
