Country Inn For Sale: Leipers Fork

Own a property in the celebrity filled neighborhood of Kenny Loggins;Naomi,Wynonna and Ashley Judd; Michael McDonald Kim Carnes and more.

During an auction in a driving rainstorm 10 years ago, Ann Johnson bought the Leiper's Fork property that now is the home of Moonshine Hill Inn.

Johnson said that the driving rains in early May that caused flooding and suffering throughout Middle Tennessee made her re-evaluate her priorities. She has decided to put Moonshine Hill up for sale.

She is asking $1,050,000 for this distinctive property, which can be a residence or a business.

At 5456 Old Highway 96, Moonshine Hill has a 1,461-square-foot cottage on 21.36 acres of land that includes another building site suitable for a second house.

In addition to the cottage, there is a barn, a cedar log cabin and a pavilion that is used for parties and weddings. There's also a vintage outhouse. It's made of chestnut wood and Johnson hasn't had the heart to tear it down.

But it is the cottage that is the centerpiece of Moonshine Hill, and it is the structure that either can be somebody's home or an inn for someone away from home.

At one time, it was Johnson's home; it did not become a business until after 2006, when she moved into a house in Franklin and converted the cottage into a quaint inn with a country-cool vibe that is completely in sync with Leiper's Fork.

Built of wood, bricks and stones that were mostly reclaimed from other structures, the cottage has a big bedroom with a private bathroom along with a home office on its second floor. A sleeping area with another full bathroom is downstairs.

The main floor also has a full kitchen, a living room with a huge stone fireplace, a dining area and a reading nook.
