Parks in Green Hills agent's Joan Pinkley and Sam Jovanov have closed a $3.5 million sale on a 0.47-acre property that sits on the northeastern fringe of Edgehill at 924 Eighth Avenue South, just a few blocks from downtown Nashville.

The buyer of this property is the singer-guitarist and producer of the blues-based rock band "The Black Keys", Dan Auerbach. Auerbach’s Easy Eye Sound recording studio is located on an adjacent property at 918 Eighth Avenue South. Dan paid $280,000 for that property in September 2010 when his Black Keys bandmate, Patrick Carney, moved to Nashville. This studio is where records like Let's Rock, Yola's Walk Through Fire, Waiting on a Song, and The Pretenders' Alone were produced. The Black Keys founded Easy Eye Sound recording studio in 2011 and boasts a label roster that includes Link Wray, Jimmy "Duck" Holmes, Yola, Shannon Shaw, and more.

The just-sold property is a 4,800 square foot building that was constructed in 1979. The property is currently housing All Seasons Gardening and Brewing Supply Company, which is going out of business. Founded in 1998, All Seasons has operated since 2007 and sold beer, wine, and garden-making supplies. The seller, who was represented by Joan and Sam, originally paid $475,000 for the lot in July 2006, according to Metro records. The property sits near a multi-parcel, 3.1-acre site on which local real estate investors are exploring redevelopment options. That 16-parcel site is envisioned for a mixed-use project that could possibly include offices, hotels, and retail spaces.
