A Cozy Home in a Quiet Neighborhood, suburb of Nashville
About Lauren Curtis
I am from New Orleans, Louisiana where I have spent most of my life. I very much love and miss that cajun/creole cuisine, and have never missed a Mardi Gras. I love the culture and Heritage of my native City, but have made myself right at home in Nashville as a singer/songwriter and love the culture here as well especially since the huge growth of Nashville in the past 5 years. Nashville is my home away from home, just as I hope my home here makes you feel like you are in your home away from home. I am a very creative person, gifted with a knack for design and color of which I love to incorporate into my home and business. I am a trendy, hip middle aged gal who loves playing guitar, singing, performing, and just creating in general. I am passionate about wildlife and nature, and love living near the lakes where I spend much of my time on the water.
Lauren Curtis purchased this House in 2000
Why Lauren Curtis chose Old Hickory
If you are looking for a very homey place that you can feel comfortable in like your own home that's in a quiet rooted neighborhood but still centrally located to all that Nashville has to offer. .. look no further. Most guests love the big fenced in back yard with flower garden and a bird sanctuary where they can enjoy nature from a screened in patio relaxing over morning coffee. It's in the suburbs of Nashville, 20 mins from the honky tonks downtown and 12 mins from the Airport. So you get the best of both worlds.
What makes this House unique
