If you lived in the house at 6418 Lickton Pike in Goodlettsville, you could quickly travel to an office or dining, shopping and entertainment in downtown Nashville, Hendersonville or Gallatin.
But you might prefer to build a fire in the outdoor fireplace and listen to the waterfall flowing into the koi pond, surrounded by more than 12 acres of private, wooded hills.
“The privacy of the 12 acres and the character of Lickton Pike are priceless. It has such a rustic modern feel it’s indescribable,” said Lindsey Waibl, affiliate broker for Ann Hoke & Associates Keller Williams.
The 4,300-square-foot house and the surrounding estate are on the market for $1,250,000. The property is not far from Interstate 65, Highway 31W and Vietnam Veterans Parkway.
“It’s close to downtown Nashville, Hendersonville, the Gallatin area, the lake,” said Judi Simms, a professional home stager for Ann Hoke & Associates.
The house, custom built in 1980, has features that are popular in new homes today, said Waibl. It has plenty of room for an office – or two – for a couple who manage businesses remotely. There are private spaces for all the kids to have their own home-school classrooms.
The house has three bedrooms and three baths. It has new flooring and paint on main level as well as new light fixtures. The baths have been remodeled and have quartz countertops. The kitchen has granite countertops.
The fully finished basement has a movie room, a keg bar, flex space and a fireplace. The soaring A-frame great room features exposed beams and a stacked-stone fireplace.
“The interior has endless possibilities for entertaining while being the perfect family home. The kitchen opens to the family room with massive picture windows to soak up the views. Or you can have a more intimate setting in the basement with the second fireplace and bar area. Perfect for family gatherings or a watch party for the Super Bowl,” said Waibl.
Simms staged the home with Kristin McLauchlin, who also is a professional stager for Ann Hoke & Associates.
Simms said she loves the downstairs party room, but her favorite part of the house is outdoors.
“My favorite ‘room’ is the patio,” said Simms. “The bar, outdoor fireplace. Each column around the perimeter has gas fire bowls. The center has a gas fire pit.”
The pool house has a full bath and a flex room. There is an outdoor kitchen with bar seating. The surrounding woods ensure complete privacy, said Waibl.
The house is designed to make the most of its setting, she said.
“Oh, the views. Lickton Pike has no window treatments for a reason. You cannot see another house in sight. All you can see are the breathtaking views of the rolling hills of Tennessee,” said Waibl.
