Mulberry Hill

The Ellis House At Mulberry Hill Historic Home of Williamson County 9170 Concord Road Brentwood, TN 37027 For Sale

Part 1 – The Kitchen House Restoration

The concept of preservationist Debbie Laster was to maintain as much original intent usage as possible and when she began the demolition of some of the kitchen structure to make the many upgrades including all new plumbing and gas lines she found a treasure in the attic above the kitchen.   A friend of Debbie’s noticed that the original ca 1830 hand hewn beams were still supporting the roof and then it was decided that the wall between the dining area and the kitchen house should be removed and the ceiling raised to 12 feet to showcase these fantastic beams and create the original style open kitchen as it would have been constructed many years ago in one of the early additions to the property.  I think that you will agree from the photo below that this was the first of many great decisions.

During the restoration many quality upgrades were included as well as commercial level updates like 12 gauge wiring throughout and a new buried electrical service installation from the new pole at the street all the way to the house.  The kitchen has a fire wall installed to ensure safety to the rest of the property and then Debbie moved on to the kitchen restoration that you can still see today.

The first item was to preserve some of the history of the old removed ceiling which was done by constructing a large center island that would bear the ca 1830 2 inch poplar boards from original kitchen house ceiling.  The island includes a triple copper sink and copper faucets with ornate design on the face.

The island needed to have the conveniences that today’s chefs would expect and to make life living in the Ellis House a pleasure so the island was constructed to include a Sharp microwave warming drawer,  Miele dishwasher with on
demand water heater, double garbage pullout, and garbage disposal.
Keeping with the concept of original use rooms the Miele stainless washer dryer have been relocated under the counter in the kitchen with Bronze knobs ca 1890.
