The Turner home combines touches of modern and vintage elements to create a comfortable and relaxed family retreat.
Driving up to Greg and Celia Turner’s charming Tennessee cottage-style farmhouse you’ll notice the street’s large arching trees, wide inviting spaces of green, and general lack of traffic making it all too easy to feel like you’re deep in the country. But the Turner’s street is something of a treasure because while it feels country, it’s no more than a stone’s throw away from major shopping retailers—a perfect combination for a modern family on the go. “It feels like the country, but it’s not,” Celia says. “As Nashville’s getting busier and busier, it’s nice to be able to come here and sort of retreat and feel like we’re in the country.”
