An adorable bungalow in Nashville, TN, was worth only $350,000 when the Scott brothers rehabbed it on their popular HGTV show. That two-bedroom, two-bath home landed on the market in mid-May for $520,000 and is now pending sale after a fierce bidding war.
The listing agent, Laura Boldt with the Wilson Group Real Estate Services, says it was fun observing the brothers’ process. Boldt represented country music artist Nicole Frechette when she bought the home in 2016 and more recently, when she sold it.
Three years ago, the Scott brothers did an awesome job renovating the cottage in the trendy Lockeland Springs neighborhood. They even added a bathroom without increasing the 1,500-square-foot footprint! Equally impressive was their bringing the bungalow up to code.
Built in 1920, the home was riddled with termites and had major structural issues, including crumbling chimneys, when they first laid eyes on it. These issues enabled Drew to negotiate the price down from $379,000 to $350,000.
The price reduction was important, because Jonathan estimated it would take at least $125,000 to make the cottage habitable again.
Their magic touch worked, as evidenced by the home’s recent sale.
Boldt was overwhelmed by the large attendance at the first open house last month. Many who toured the home were especially impressed by the kitchen.
“It’s top-notch,” she says of the popular room. “It’s so on-trend and current, but still has historic charm. It’s one of the best in East Nashville.”
And the kitchen has legs—gorgeous legs. Among the kitchen features that enchanted the open house crowd were the legs supporting the new quartz-topped peninsula. They’re actually wood posts that were found in a reclaimed architectural accessories store.
The home is full of reclaimed, reused, and spiffed-up items. There’s an old hutch included in the sale that was originally in the butler’s pantry. That pantry space made way for the aforementioned extra bath. Repurposed French doors now close off the dining room, if dinner is an intimate affair.
They also saved the fireplaces, all four of them! Two were restored to working condition, and the other two were used for charming wall accents.
The landscaped backyard was also a selling point. According to Boldt, the home’s oversize lot is rare for the area, and the lush lawn, new fence, and patio helped stir interest from buyers.
So why is Frechette selling the place a mere three years after the “Property Brothers” crew offered their golden touch?
“She got an opportunity she couldn’t pass up in France,” says Boldt.
