Have you seen Martina McBride’s show on the Food Network called “Martina’s Table”? In the episodes you’ll often see celebrity guests like Sheryl Crow and Faith Hill walking up to this farmhouse’s big front porch and knocking on the gorgeous old door.
The house is on the market in Franklin, Tennessee, so now we can see more of it than just the front porch and the kitchen where her show was filmed. The exterior has old farmhouse style, but it’s actually fairly new, with a more modern farmhouse look inside. Check it out!
The Franklin Farmhouse from “Martina’s Table”
File this under: New Houses that only look old. It was built in 2017.
That gorgeous antique door would lead me to guess otherwise!
Everything looks a lot newer and more “modern farmhouse” once you get inside.
The listing says:
Modern Farmhouse nestled in the Heart of Downtown Franklin. Historic character with all the amenities. Open floor plan with spacious rooms, antique doors, stone fireplaces and classic finishes. Featured on Food Network’s newest show with Martina McBride, Martina’s Table!
“Zoned Office/Residential and includes a 676 square-foot apartment perfect for guests, office space or AirBNB.”
This is a big place! It’s got 6 bedrooms, 6.5 baths, and 7,527 square feet.
This long hallway by the back door acts as a mudroom:

What would a modern farmhouse be without sliding barn doors, shiplap and subway tile?
I found some behind-the-scenes photos on Food Network’s website showing Martina in the farmhouse:
Here’s the dining table she was working at:
A promo for “Martina’s Table” showed her in the dining area with some of her friends:
I love Faith Hill. Have you seen her farmhouse in Franklin? Unlike this one, it’s an old one:

According to the Food Network website:
You likely know Martina McBride as a longtime country music sensation. She’s a Grammy-nominated artist with a seemingly never-ending list of smash hits to her name, and she’s a force to be reckoned with when performing on stage. This fall (of 2018), though, she’s gearing up for the performance of a lifetime — right here in the kitchen.
“On Martina’s Table, Martina will open up her doors to friends, family and fellow musicians to showcase her menu of party-ready recipes. The thing is, she’s not just a top-notch singer-songwriter. She’s a fierce cook too, with a passion for entertaining.
“Her dishes are approachable, doable and totally, completely her. She’ll be cooking for guests each week, but there’s no doubt that you too will feel like you’re in Martina’s kitchen as she shows you the step-by-step tricks for bringing her signature recipes to life. Look out for tried-and-true Midwestern favorites, all-new takes on some of your favorite snacks, plus go-to Mexican dishes and even a Thanksgiving feast that’s easy enough for first-time hosts to tackle.”
The back of the house opens to a private courtyard. It also has a covered porch and outdoor fireplace:
Here’s an aerial view of downtown Franklin so you can see where the farmhouse is (front center):
It’s a short walk to Main Street where I had a chance to walk around when I was staying in Franklin last year.
The garage was built to look like an old attached stone barn and has an apartment over it:
There’s not much of a yard since the house sits on a corner lot near downtown,
but it’s pretty private with that fence and gate:
Want it? What would you do with a house this big that’s zoned for residential and commercial? I could see it working as a kind of B&B or place for retreats. Or maybe you could rent it out to other country music stars who have cooking shows on the Food Network? 🙂
They’re asking $2.762 million for the modern farmhouse at 611 Fair Street. Check Parks Real Estate to see the listing held by Danny Anderson for more photos and information. And go to the Food Network website to learn more about Martina’s Table.
