We Can Dream: An Expansive Tennessee Farmhouse on 750 Acres

There’s not much to Williamsport, Tennessee, in terms of restaurants, live music or storefronts. That’s all in Nashville, about an hour’s drive away. But what Williamsport lacks in nightlife, it more than makes up for in sheer beauty. Rolling hills, grassy farmlands and 19th-century houses dot the sweeping landscape.

It’s here that a homemaker and a top music business executive chose to grab a scenic piece of countryside as a weekend getaway. They found a farmhouse from the late 1800s on about 750 acres that were strewn with several dilapidated barns and outbuildings, and fell in love with the idea of restoring the farmhouse to its original state.

With the help of HS2 Architecture, they spent more than two years painstakingly tearing down the old poplar barns and reclaiming every piece of wood to return the house to what it once was. Meanwhile, a new addition supports the crowds: three kids, grandchildren and friends and colleagues in the music business who come for weekend parties.
