After 27 years and a brief stint as the Rebel’s Roost Bed & Breakfast, the Clark family is ready to part ways with a piece of Franklin history.

The Miller Beasley house stands prominently on the corner of 3rd Ave South and South Margin Street. Constructed in 1868 and celebrating its 150th year, the home has been meticulously restored to its former glory and is ready for a new set of owners to enjoy this stately residence. Katie Baker of RE/MAX Elite is representing the Sellers and listed the home for sale on January 11, 2018.

The Miller Beasley House was designed and built by John W. Miller, a contractor from Birmingham who is also credited with building the Williamson County Courthouse & the German house. The home’s most unique feature is the fact that it is one story. The background told is Mrs. Miller lived in a two-story home ruined by a tornado which was the reason the Miller Beasley house has only one level.

The Miller Beasley House was purchased by the late Sheffield & Faye Clark in 1991 at auction. From then the home was meticulously restored with period designs and modern conveniences by Mrs. Clark. The home enjoyed a period from 1996 to 2009 as the Rebel’s Roost Bed & Breakfast. From Katie Baker of RE/MAX Elite, “The Miller Beasley House was the host of many entertaining occasions by the Clark family. We hope to locate an owner who appreciates what a grand testament to Tennessee architecture the home represents and has a true love of Franklin history as well.”

The home is over 5,500sqf and has 4 bedrooms & 3.5 baths, a study, great room, dining room, sunroom, mudroom and updated kitchen in the main dwelling. An additional 2 bedroom/1 bath apartment with full kitchen, den and private entrance is connected to the home as well. Additional office space, workshop and garden shed are attached to the garage. The list price is $2,300,000.00.
