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.

Beautiful Oasis:Enjoy the best of country & city!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the lovely Villa Toscana home in mid-August for our annual ladies’ college roommate trip. This year the six of us (from Chicago, NYC and Columbus, OH) chose the Franklin/Nashville area! We were so thrilled that we did! This home was the perfect oasis for us to relax and take in the beautiful countryside, sit by the bonfire, enjoy the large kitchen for breakfasts and screened-in patio in the evenings for catching up! We were very close to Nashville to listen to great live music, shop and have some excellent BBQ. We also enjoyed our afternoon touring around Franklin, eating at local restaurants and shopping. This home has comfortable/roomy bedrooms, nice bathrooms, lovely décor and many amenities. Bill was an excellent host and provided numerous recommendations for activities and restaurants in the area. We plan to stay here again and have already recommended this home to others!

Great location for a group!

  • 5 of 5

Great property with a great location making it feel like you're out in the countryside. The house is well equipped for our crew--3 married children with 3 and 4 year old boys. We ordered from town on a couple of occasions, the kids went into Nashville one night, and we cooked on the grill on our final night! Lots of room to play outside for both young and old. But the best part of the house was certainly the screened porch! We thoroughly enjoyed our time there, chatting on and on, sitting on a large, comfy couch. It couldn't have been any nicer! ! ! I would highly recommend it for your next group! ! ! Thanks so much!

Beautiful hideaway! No need to leave the house!

  • 5 of 5

This place is simply gorgeous! We stayed here for a weekend with a couple of other couples. Bill was very attentive, personal and accommodating by calling ahead of my trip to ensure everything would go according to plan. This place is immaculate! I could've slept overnight in the screened porch and been just fine...I almost did if someone didn't wake me! Games were provided which was great for the kids that came to visit while in town. The grill didn't work, but Bill's dad stopped by to repair or replace it before we even knew it was inoperable. I love the layout of the home! We will definitely return here whenever we're visiting Nashville. It's close enough to enjoy the city, yet comfy and well-equipped enough to enjoy a night in.

Nashville excellence

  • 5 of 5

This place is a gem. We were disappointed that the rules have changed in the county and your restricted to 10 people at the house. We were on a family reunion and would have loved to have hosted a lunch or dinner but were unable. Other than that the owner Bill was great,. We left the place hoping to come back some day. The property has manicured grounds surrounded by trees and expansive areas of lawn. It's about 15 to 20 minutes from down town Nashville. The home itself is beautiful. It is very clean, there is a washer and dryer if you needed to do a load of laundry.

Owner's Response: Wendy, I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay at Villa Toscana and we look forward to your return. While the county doesn't set a limit of 10 guests at the property, they don't permit events with large gatherings and we evaluate each request on it's own merits. Thanks again for staying with us !

Relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a place to stay just outside of Nashville, this is THE place! It was exactly as described and the house & property is just beautiful! My family & I stayed for a week and we all were so impressed. The layout was exactly what we needed with my family (hubby & 3 kids under 3) on the master suite side & my parents & sister & her family on the other. The most popular spot was the screened in porch. It was a little warm the last 2 days we were there, but we still sat out there in the morning because it was just so peaceful. Bill was very responsive as well. When we come back to Nashville we definitely know where we'll be staying! Thank you so much :)
