Using historical inspiration with a fresh modern day approach, Southern Living custom builder Castle Homes has created a Contemporary English Country house for the Nashville Parade of Homes open daily for tour through October 22.
Southern Living Idea House
You’ll remember Castle Home’s work from the 2013 Southern Living Idea House at Fontanel with interiors by Phoebe Howard and Forest Home Media serving as a member of the PR team headed up by PR pro Jennifer Zawadzinski.
Castle Homes was selected for the national build after earning Southern Living magazine’s 2012 Custom Builder of the Year.
Inspired By 20th Century British Architect
Castle Homes is participating in the premier Nashville home tour unveiling a home inspired by noted 1900s British architect Sir Edwin Lutyens, designed in collaboration with local architect C. Kevin Coffey, with interior design by Castle’s in-house designers and interior styling by Rozanne Jackson Interiors with The Iron Gate furnishings and decor.
“Castle Homes creates houses of architectural integrity by taking historic inspiration with a fresh perspective which you see when you step into the open floor plan home with incredible custom finishes,” Castle Homes President Alan Looney said. “We take very seriously our goal of contributing to the architecture of Middle Tennessee.”
Clever Home Ideas

Castle took the craftsmanship of the home to the next level with a delicate tracery ceiling in the study, custom powder bath vanity and a scalloped hood for a Wolf range which showcases new gold and silver knobs – a departure from the traditional Wolf red.
Don’t Miss Elements
The home has several don’t miss elements including Bunkara day beds in a casual den, a golf simulator where you can play courses around the world and Rasmussen FireBalls, an alternative to traditional gas fireplace logs. The stunning home is complete with a beautiful array of succulents and floral décor created by Nashville designer Tim Riffle, previously featured in Nancy McNulty’s column on The Southern C.
