Fairvue Plantation Mansion
Location: Gallatin, Tennessee
Client: Moore & Associates, Inc.
The centerpiece of the five-acre residence at Fairvue Plantation, where world-renowned fox hunts were held in the late 1800s and thoroughbred racehorses were bred through the early 1900s, is the original 1830s mansion. The estate was purchased in the early 21st century by a family who decided to refurbish the residence and make it their home. Lose & Associates was engaged to develop a master plan for all estate grounds and establish a connection to a surrounding new residential development. Project highlights include preservation of the residence’s historic character through utilization of existing elements (such as original brick walls, 150-year-old boxwoods and the old carriage drive) while balancing the family’s desire for modern amenities.
