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 Tennessee

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 party house!

  • 5 of 5

I celebrated a big Birthday this past weekend and found the PERFECT party house in this VRBO property! So easy to get to, the home had all I was looking for and more and with 28 guests, it never felt crowded! I had out of town company who stayed at the home for 2 nights and everyone loved it! If you do have a group at this home, be sure to also enjoy the wonderful catering by Chef Mary! She was a delight! Thank you for a wonderful weekend of celebrations.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Villa Toscana was even better than the pictures !! Our family stayed there to attend our daughters wedding Nov.12- the Villa was perfect for us to relax during the down times, many good conversations and laughs were had around the kitchen counter and bedrooms and bathrooms wonderful to rest and dress.

The Villa and grounds are beautiful. Would and have recommended to anyone.Thank you for sharing this beautiful home.

Excellent for Small Groups!

  • 4 of 5

Everything we needed was available; we felt very well cared for. The home was clean, beautifully appointed and even provided toiletries like a hotel would. It would have been helpful to know ahead of time that hair dryers were available, games were on hand and a DVR was an option (they were)! Don't plan to read; light is dim expect for the kitchen where the switches are on rheostat. We recommend it heartily to others who don't mind a relatively remote location. The listing should emphasize its sunken living room as it is dangerous for 'mature' folks (we don't want to say we were celebrating our 70th birthdays!).

Owner's Response: Lynn, thanks for staying at Villa Toscana and for your feedback. I noticed your reservation was booked on TripAdvisor and they don't really provide owners with great tools for showing what's provided with the rental. I have since updated our email check-in documents to better outline what we provide, which as you say is significant. We've also updated the Hospitality App on VRBO/HomeAway. The reading lights are adequate except for the media room and we have added a floor lamp to that area for future guests per your suggestion. The sunken living room is pictured in all of the advertising and is only 1 step down but your point is well taken and we'll examine our listing to determine if there's a way we can hi-light this. Again, thanks for staying with us and we look forward to your return.

Dream Home

  • 5 of 5

This is the most beautiful home I've ever stayed in! Great location and a huge front and back yard. The master suite is on one side of the house and the guest rooms are on the other which made for peace and quiet even though there were a few people in the house! The owner, Bill, was soooo accommodating and made sure that we felt right at home! We stayed for our wedding weekend with half of our wedding party. Such an incredible experience. It was so hard to leave this beautiful home! Our stay here inspired us to make our 5 year plan to move into more of a 2 year plan. The city of Franklin is incredible. Everything about our stay at this home was top notch! There's nothing like this place for rent anywhere else!

Fantastic Home

  • 5 of 5

We had 5 of us staying at this wonderful, spacious home. The place was very clean and very comfy. The yard is huge, enough room to play ball. We saw deer every morning from the closed in back porch. We drove to downtown Franklin-very quick, easy drive. Franklin is worth visiting-shops and sights. We also drove into Nashville-again quick, easy drive-20-25 minutes. We all hope to stay here again next year.
