Boasting one of the hottest residential markets in the country with Nashville, Tennessee’s real estate market is on an upwards swing. Named the strongest housing market in the country twice in 2016 by Freddie Mac, Nashville outranked similar-sized cities such as Austin and Charlotte. Northeast Tennessee has been generating some pretty impressive stats as well, with inventory hitting a 13-month low and prices hitting a 6-month high in the first quarter of 2017.
As Nashville continues to be the state’s hottest housing market, it’s no surprise that Tennessee’s most expensive homes for sale right now are clustered around the city on the Cumberland. Ranging in price from $8.9 million to $18.5 million, these luxurious homes are all about high-end country living with vast estates featuring rolling pastures, equestrian facilities, party barns, antebellum homes and recording studios – they don’t call it Music City for nothing!
Located in affluent Nashville neighborhoods such as Green Hills and in well-to-do metro communities such as Franklin and Murfreesboro, these homes redefine what life and your home can offer when you live in Tennessee’s #1 wealthiest county – Williamson, incidentally also the 7th wealthiest county in the country. With thousands of square feet of starchitect-designed living space and manicured sprawling acreages, these pricey homes abound with luxurious finishes such as professional grade appliances, rare woods, imported marbles, swanky security features and state-of-the-art recording studios.
