About Bill Carman

My passion for traveling to Italy led me to transform this home into a beautiful country retreat in 1999. Every architectural element and the peaceful, secluded setting reminds me of Tuscan villas I've stayed in over the years, the simple life and a very sought-after living environment.

Bill Carman purchased this house in 1999

Why Bill Carman chose Franklin

I chose to purchase this home because it has a secluded, country retreat setting and atmosphere yet extremely close to Franklin and Nashville. With 11 acres the property is ideal for privacy & seclusion yet within minutes of Nashville & Franklin. The architectural design elements inside and out remind me of coming home to a country retreat for some rest & relaxation

What makes this house unique

Situated on 11 acres, this home is ideal for entertaining. A stone exterior, castle like entry doors, gas lanterns, wood burning fireplace, Italian tile & furnishings, hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, outdoors decks, gardens and a park like setting make this property unique.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Keirstin and Ryan were so thrilled with the house. Thank you and Tammy for all you did to make it such a wonderful place. They told me about the flowers and chocolates and sparkling cider and how lovely it was with all the special touches. It will definitely be a weekend they will remember for the rest of their lives! We may rent it with some friends one of these days.

The Perfect Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

(I realized I neglected to send in this review from our stay in June 2017). For the first time, my siblings and I decided to take a vacation together. We found the Villa Toscana online and decided it fit our needs. However, the online photos just don't do this place justice - it was stunning! Bill couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating, everything was exactly as promised, and we had a wonderful time. If you have a large group and are looking for a place near Nashville, this is the place to stay!!

Amazing house!

Our family had a great time at this location! The house had plenty of space for all of us and was the perfect distance from Franklin and Nashville. Would definitely recommend for a large group!

Every aspect was perfection!

  • 5 of 5

We rent a house for every vacation we go on. By far, this has been the best rental property we have stayed in! It was immaculate. The acreage was perfect for sending lots of kids outside to play football/soccer/basketball. The neighbors horses were always at the fence begging for our attention and 20 or so deer would come out to graze at dusk every evening. We had one issue with a bathtub but as soon as i let Bill know, he had a plumber scheduled to come out. Shoot, Bill even offered to open up his personal home to my family when the threat of tornados was looming over us. The open floor plan provided a perfect location for family gatherings. Loved it! Loved it! Loved it!

Just like the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

The place was very nice, neat and comfortable. The owners have great communication prior to arrival as well as labels and binders for information while you're at the house.Added bonus was a family of deer strolling across the lawn at dusk and gaggle of Canadian geese arriving the following morning to land in the little pond on the side yard.
