When the original homestead of the Oman neighborhood at 7004 Crews Lane in Brentwood came onto the real estate market, everyone realized available, coveted land tracts in that private location are rare. Oman encompasses 34 acres with 21 lots off Franklin Road, and this manor spot is extra special. 

The professional team of Nashville builder HV Urban, a subsidiary of luxury builder Hidden Valley Homes, state they relished fully remodeling the residence down to the studs. 

Lauren Spangler, HV Urban sales/marketing director, confirms they all expected the home to reveal a certain charm, but that its true character was spectacular. "We wanted to keep some of the unique characteristics of the estate home, and were able to with the entry's curved banister staircase, interior cobblestone pavers in hallway, and the original fireplaces. Our vision was to take it from traditional to transition," she says. "It was a good challenge for us as a company to take on a different project from new construction luxury homes. Our owners, John MacCauley and Jim Spangler, had fun transitioning this and it has become one the finer estate homes in Brentwood."

The architect for the renovation is Andrew Scott, founder and design director at August House Co.

The real estate agent who listed and sold the home, LCT Team–Parks Realtor Lisa Culp Taylor, says this stately, spacious home combines the best of both worlds. 

With an incredible location in Brentwood, Lisa shares the home is surrounded by gorgeous landscaping. She says many people enjoyed the house's open floor plan and finishing touches, such as six fireplaces. Its pool with a 1,243 square-foot pool house is coming in handy this summer.

Located on 2.58 acres, the five-bedroom home also has five garages.

"I was honored to participate in the process of its reimaging with the smart and talented builder, HV Urban, and the architect, Andrew Scott," says Lisa. 

This was a unique project for many reasons, she adds, beginning with the redesign being done around the home’s mature landscape and existing magnolia trees, which are actually protected by the City of Brentwood. 

"Taken down to the studs, we were all impressed by the original craftsmanship. There's a brick loggia kept in the house's main part, and has become a focal point of the home. The reclaimed brick floor is now surrounded by beautiful windows. In the study, the brick was also revealed during construction and the exposed brick was kept," Lisa explains. 

The pool was also original and was restyled and rebuilt. She says she really loves seeing original elements of this home become an interesting part of its future.  

"Today, the Oman homestead has new chapters ahead and blends beautifully with the architecture of its namesake neighborhood. A sweet conclusion to the project for me was the sale of the renovated home for just over $6 million to the clients of fellow team Realtor, Amy Pappas,” concludes Lisa. 

The home sale closed this year on March 11.
