Historic Greek Revival with Five (Yes, Five!) Fireplaces

Dandridge is a real treat for old house fans. It was named after First Lady Martha Dandridge Washington and bills itself as the "Second Oldest City in Tennessee." The town was a booming steamboat port in the early 1800s, but the railroad came in the 1850s and shifted the commercial epicenter to nearby Jefferson City. It settled in as a sleepy County Seat after that. So, what do we get? Small-town vibes...

Queen Anne with Residential and Commercial Potential

I'm passionate about preserving old houses because they're the physical remnants of long, complicated stories about who we are. It's easy because they're often gorgeous, but what really gets me is thinking about families, and echoing laughter, and even pain - just that feeling that we get when we're *home* that sets us at special ease and brings out our truest selves (and our comfiest, rattiest...

Let’s all put in $100 and save this thing, shall we?

Don't you hate it when you're looking all over for the perfect 56-room Neoclassical mansion and just can't find exactly what you're after? Found it. Silk-producing business tycoon George Dery built this home (silk was VERY lucrative at the time, if you're wondering) and spared absolutely no expense. Coffered ceilings, marble fireplaces, gorgeous stained glass (Tiffany, naturally!) and an indoor pool are...

Let this Greek Revival with Mid Century Interiors Blow your Mind

The Captain Frederick Grisard Mansion is blowing my mind. It's an 1848 Greek Revival that is deceptively classic on the outside. Wrought-iron fence, wraparound porch...it's been in the same family for four generations and is on the market for the first time in 100 years. Charming, huh? Just wait until you step inside. Time warp! The interior is utterly Mid-Century and, if I may say so, completely unique....

This Painted Lady is a Candy-Colored Dream Come True!

I'm getting major Willy Wonka vibes from this expansive Queen Anne. The massive wraparound porch, color scheme and turret are serving up slam-on-the-breaks curb appeal. The interior is all rich wood detailing, pocket doors, and fabulous wallpaper. The kitchen also delivers big time for all of us "please don't gut the kitchen!" folks with retro tile and classic black and white checkerboard flooring. The...
