Side by side 4 bedroom houses on a peaceful wooded cul-de-sac near Nashville Shores in Hermitage, Tennessee 37076 

Diana and her daughter owned these 2 houses by the lake since 2001, 10 miles east of downtown, and have shared rooms there with guests from all over the world, and hosted house concerts and hundreds of circles.  

The houses are now transitioning ownership to Marquetta Dupree, a daughter of Diana’s beloved friend and mentor, Adora Dupree, and Eric Santagada, creative former resident and gifted musician.

These two talented young people plus Seemi Risvi, warm beloved hostess, and Terrence Brooks, steady friend/great handyman will tend to the houses, build community, and continue to provide safe, peaceful and affordable “home” to many in the coming years, as well as host creative community circles.
