This awesome home has been in the same family for over a century! Cross Plains, Tennessee, founded in 1787, is Robertson County’s oldest settlement and this home was built when it was a bustling marketplace before the Civil War. The front features unique hand-carved fretwork created by a former ship’s carpenter, William Spain, along with a tiled front porch. Inside you will find immense rooms with 12-foot ceilings and four fireplaces. Don’t overlook the carpet in the front rooms, it is actually 100% wool that is close to 50 years old!
In the rear is a large workshop with four carports and a garage. There is plenty of room for parking and entertaining in the rear with a covered carport/patio just outside the back door.
This home is right in the center of Cross Plains which has a variety of shops and services. Thomas Drugs is Tennessee’s longest continually-operated pharmacy and features an old-fashioned soda fountain. You are steps away from the post office, barber, hair salon, gift shop, restaurants, grocery, doctor’s office, and more. Conley Tate opened Tate Automotive in 1926 just a block away which still remains in business. The local fire department, East Robertson High School, and Kilgore Park, named for the city’s founder, are all within walking distance. The Tate House has been home to several businesses over the years but remains zoned residential.
