Welcome Home: True Southern Living in Historic Franklin


The opportunity to own a piece of history, a block from “America’s Favorite Main Street,” is now available in this prestigious showplace located at 214 4th Avenue South. The property originally owned by Mr. and Mrs. Frank Gray, Sr. was subsequently purchased by Ms. Anne Rolff Pinkerton. She is said to have constructed this historical masterpiece in 1915 where the past continues to tell a story within the walls of this completely renovated 4,654 square foot home.

Featuring four spacious bedrooms, three and one-half bathrooms, enclosed sunroom, expansive outdoor living and a detached garage with carriage house; those looking for a blend of antique charm and modern conveniences will find this estate a true downtown gem.

The gorgeous entrance of this home is the perfect location to welcome friends and family, greeting guests with soaring twelve foot ceilings, timeless color scheme and traditional fireplace with mantel. Solid wood pocket doors guide you to the grandeur of a spacious dining room, filled with natural light from the extensive weight and pulley wood windows and elegance of an antique crystal chandelier. Opening into the kitchen, entertainers will appreciate the flexibility to socialize with guests.


The Kitchen
This chef’s dream boasts an eleven-foot granite island complete with dishwasher, porcelain sink, and forty-six bottle wine refrigerator. Functionality and style continue throughout this space with a walk-in pantry, Wolfe range, built-in Subzero refrigerator; further highlighted by the custom white cabinets, delft blue and white hand painted tile backsplash and original exposed brick.

Master Suite
The master suite features top of the line finishes, creating a luxurious sanctuary. One of the two original fireplaces is positioned perfectly as is access to the covered side porch. In addition, the calming Carrara marble bathroom, vintage crystal chandelier, two-tiered vanity and custom gray cabinets complete this stunning space.
