Inspired by the “dream house”, the Lebanese house offers luxury and event space
An HGTV dream home is, quite literally, what dreams are made of – created with not only all the amenities in mind, but also filled with luxurious custom touches. The owner of the one-of-a-kind property at 4032 Coles Ferry Pike in Lebanon fell in love when he visited the 2006 HGTV dream home. Owner Mark Tomlinson happens to be a home builder by profession, so he designed the floor plans from memory and builds her own version of the house, adding personal touches along the way. (He also happens to be the listing agent’s father, who grew up there).
The main floor has an open plan that flows from room to room, including a kitchen with custom fitted cabinets and granite countertops, a dining room and a living room with a stone fireplace (one of three on the property), vaulted ceilings using Beams dating from the 1800s and panoramic views of part of the property. The flooring, featuring several exquisite inlays in intricate geometric patterns, was crafted from trees cleared from the property itself. The master suite, which includes custom bedside tables and a whirlpool tub, is on the main level.

Blaike Tomlinson White, the house’s agent and former resident, has the property listed for $3.8 million and says that aside from being the perfect home for a new family to create memories, no details are available. has been forgotten and the handwork is outstanding.
“My father is a true craftsman, like his father before him and my brother who follows in his footsteps. He can build anything and has a good sense of design,” says Tomlinson White. “Everything in the house is made with attention to detail – the boards were created from trees on the property, and the historic log cabin was dismantled from another homestead and reassembled here.”
The 5,790 square foot home features five bedrooms, each with an attached bathroom. There are two additional half baths in the house. Among the unique features, one bedroom includes a bed frame that suspends the mattress from the ceiling using a chain link, and another includes twin beds with a ladder leading to a loft play area.
On the lower level there is ample space for recreation including a music room, den, bookshelves, exercise room and craft room. The den also includes a kitchenette with a mini fridge, sink and microwave.
The house is also designed to take advantage of all that outdoor living has to offer. There is an upstairs terrace with stunning views. The patio under the breezeway includes another stone fireplace and a seating area. Yet another area includes a built-in gas fireplace surrounded by lounge chairs, BBQ area, in-ground pool and hot tub. There are also two ponds on the property.
Set on 20.35 acres, in addition to the main house, the property includes a barn built for use as a wedding and event venue and a historic cabin that includes a central living space flanked by guest suites, each with a full bathroom, on either side. The owners have used these features to host weddings, but the house also has potential as an income property. Offering a private and peaceful country getaway, it’s not far from Nashville. Despite its rural setting, it’s only 30 minutes from the Nashville airport and 36 minutes from downtown – with this property, you really can have it all.
