Beautiful Southern Homes: Green-Moore House

It is easy to see why this stunning Queen Anne style home was originally called the Turret Mansion when it was built in 1896.  Sitting at the corner of 10th Avenue and West Main Street in Franklin, Tennessee’s oldest neighborhood of Hincheyville, the five bedroom, four bath manor was the prize of affluent local banker Ed Green, who built the home to flaunt his success. In 1979 it was purchased by retired four-star General William Moore and his wife Marge.  General Moore served as the President of the Nashville Airport Authority.  Marge Moore passed away in 2011.  General Moore followed her six months later.  The couples only child inherited the home.

This home boasts a total of nine fireplaces and an original front door featuring leaded glass and many of the original intricate woodwork.  The home and its 0.4 acre lot can be yours for a cool $1,499,000.  While the it has undergone upgrades over the years, its kitchen and the master bathroom could still use a facelift.  The owner is willing to redo both spaces to the buyers taste or adjust the price accordingly.

Located just a few miles south of Nashville, Franklin boasts a  little more than 62,000 residents and a reputation as one of the most affluent communities in the state of Tennessee.  Franklin was founded in 1799 and still maintains its Southern Charm.  The historic downtown area, where this home is located, offers a diverse mix of shops, historic homes and restaurants.   The downtown historic district puts on numerous festivals and events through the year.

Not only is this this home on the National Register of Historic Places, but the entire neighborhood of Hincheyville is as well.
