Hillside Clarksville classic with historic features asks $1.5M

Baylor Street home overlooks downtown

This home on one of the neighborhood's most notable streets is classically Clarksville in every way: Shambling but solid, perched on a hill that overlooks North Lamar and lovely in a quirky, unpretentious manner that seems to elude some of its neighboring downtown buildings.

Built in 1925, it still has many of its original features, including heart of pine floors and historic windows and doors. At 2,568 square feet, it has a total of five bedrooms and four bathrooms, configured with two additional living spaces below the main house— one-bedroom suites with their own kitchens—below the main house and is currently being leased as a duplex.

The upstairs deck in back of the main house offers great views of downtown and the neighborhood and has a charmingly disheveled backyard and partial rock wall below. We haven't looked it up, but we're sure its walkability score is a bazillion, seeing as it's a couple of blocks from West Sixth, West Fifth, and Lamar, the locus of great fun, food, stores, and the Whole Foods mothership.
