Cannongate Farm

Originally owned by the Gillespie family, this Revolutionary War Land Grant farm dates to 1778. Among its notable owners is Henry Cannon, husband of beloved country music matriarch, Minnie Pearl. They used it as a farm and hunting retreat (with numerous celebrity visitors) for decades. The land was then kept intact by other owners until 2013, when it was purchased by the current owners.

Nashville-based architect Van Pond led the team that transformed Cannongate Farm into a luxurious retreat. Bending Chestnut Construction made real the family’s vision to enhance the original, two-story log cabin into a new version with the best of everything. In almost all cases, each design feature has been created by using materials already at the estate, the fixture has been special ordered, or it is one-of-a-kind.

The nearly 11,000 square foot main house is filled with beautiful details such as historically correct paint colors, 1900s chandelier, original flooring, beautiful fireplaces, custom-made features, and much more. Special features of the property include a stunning sunroom, two kitchens (one part of the original log home), library, covered porches, entertainment wing, guest house, three barns, orchard, and historic smokehouse.

The views at the property are truly magnificent. On a clear day, head to the ridge behind the main house and you can see Alabama.

While the property is secluded and private, essential shopping is less than 10 miles away in nearby Chapel Hill, or you can easily get to Franklin.
