Atticus Real Estate CEO and One Humphreys chairman, Mark Humphreys, is excited to announce the purchase and restoration of The Old Oaks Farm – a post-civil war era estate currently on 4.5 acres located approximately 50 miles north of Nashville, Tenn. on the border of Kentucky and Tennessee in Guthrie, Kentucky.

The renovation will bring the historic 1867 Greek revival mansion to its former glory with plans to turn the property into a modern rustic venue for hosting weddings, corporate events, retreats and more. Humphreys’ future plans incorporate his wife’s nearby family farmland to bring the property total to 755 acres.

The property caught the attention of Humphreys as it was the central location for country music star Deana Carter’s video and 1997 hit, Strawberry Wine, which won numerous awards and nominations. The estate was also the site where American writer Robert Penn Warren documented his personal experience with the home in the poem titled “True Love.”

Proposed on-site amenities include a modern wedding barn, outdoor entertainment areas with fire pits, skeet shooting range and white fenced horse stables. Inside the 7-bedroom, 6,776 square foot home, guests will enjoy a demonstration kitchen and updated accommodations with interiors provided by Restoration Hardware. Plans for outdoor activities consist of skeet shooting, bird hunting, river rafting, and horseback riding. The venue is anticipated to open by May 2020.
