Jo Dee Messina Puts Charming Franklin, TN Country Style House On the Market

Is Franklin, Tennessee your dream town? It was for New Englander Jo Dee Messina before she moved to the area to make her musical dreams come true.

If you know anything about Messina, it’s that you can take her out of Boston, but you will never take the Boston out of her. That is why when she found a home for sale in Montpier Farms that exuded Northeastern living in the South, she couldn’t resist making it her own.

Messina recently placed the home, which sits on 1.4 acres of property, filled with beautiful trees and rolling hills, on the market. The house which she describes as “charming,” “warm,” and “quaint,” is ideal for a family with children, as it sits on a cul-de-sac on a quiet street and boasts the scenery and sounds of the country. The main difference between this gorgeous farm-style house in Franklin and a home in the woods is the opportunity to meet, greet, and get to know your neighbors.

The home, which is located at 1207 Perkins Lane, consists of four bedrooms, three bathrooms, peaceful front and back porches, a two-car attached garage, and a separate structure that could be used as a garage, workshop, office, music studio, etc. Aside from its charm on the interior, the house has spectacular curb appeal and is far enough away from the street to encourage privacy, but close enough that it is abundantly welcoming.
