As published on May 4, 2021, by JENNA BRATCHER

From the Love Circle vista point and the pedestrian bridge overlook to the lush landscape and equestrian barns of Harlinsdale Farm in Franklin, Middle Tennessee offers its share of stunning scenery to admire. We may not always have an opportunity to enjoy them, but there are plenty of local homes that boast beautiful panoramas, too. Here’s a sneak peek of the view from four of the most picturesque abodes in and around Music City.

Stunning Homes with Stunning Views

An Oak Hill Escape by Page | Duke

There aren’t too many Nashville homes that can call an entire hilltop their own! South of Downtown, this stunning residence is nestled in the woods of Oak Hill with a view that will make your jaw drop. The tranquil property has a rear yard with a grass-covered hill that provides built-in privacy, and there’s even a trail from the home to the hilltop, offering the perfect spot to relax and feel inspired by the city views and surrounding foothills. Brittany Dingler, Project Manager for Page | Duke Landscape Architects, says it was a treat to enjoy the serenity of nature while looking out at the cityscape as she and Lead Landscape Architect Gavin Duke worked at the residence. “For this project, you couldn’t help but be inspired by its setting and panoramic views of the Nashville skyline,” she says. “The view and surrounding hills were the driving factors in everything we designed and planted.”

In the project’s beginning stages, Gavin and Brittany sketched the clients’ vision to assess function as well as aesthetic impact, then fine-tuned the design on the computer. “It’s always a joy to be wholistically involved in the design of a project, from the larger birds-eye view down to the profile of a custom rail,” Brittany says. “It makes for an extra special project.” With a combination of both cozy and vast rooms from which to enjoy the landscape, the home offers a space to accommodate every mood and moment, including outdoor areas perfect for entertaining. “When you have such a spectacular view of the skyline and foothills of Middle Tennessee,” says Brittany, “it’s very important to have contrasting outdoor ‘rooms’ that are inwardly focused — like the family fire-pit area or the semi-private front lawn — for visual relief and escape.” And a gorgeous escape it is!
