The country music legend Alan Jackson is strumming a farewell tune to his massive mansion in Franklin, TN. The chart-topping singer has put the home on the market for $23 million, which makes it the most expensive home on the market in Williamson County.
Jackson’s single-family home can’t really be described as a place for a single family. Completed in 2011 by the architect Ron Farris, the vast residence features five bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms, spread over a whopping 22,000 square feet.
Just outside Nashville, the mansion sits on a hilltop with over 4 acres of property. The surroundings are heavily wooded, and the property is shielded by an additional 120 acres of green space, which provides plenty of privacy and gorgeous views.
Jackson’s lair is in a gated community with a constantly manned gate. Once you get past the community gate and approach the cul-de-sac stone driveway, you’ll find Jackson’s second gate, which leads up the long driveway to his “monumental stone residence.”
The grand foyer features beautiful hardwood floors and an elegant chandelier. It opens onto a dramatic staircase that leads to the upper and lower levels.
A large chef’s kitchen offers an abundance of counter space, as well as double ovens, a gas stove, and custom cabinetry.
On the upper level, you’ll find the master suite, with a large sitting area. The suite has French doors that lead out to a balcony to soak in the fresh country air.
The master bathroom features a spacious walk-in shower and a separate tub with double doors that open out to lovely vistas of the well-manicured yard below.
And as you might imagine with an estate of this kind, the living and family rooms are built on a grand scale. Outside, there’s a pool with a poolhouse, an outdoor kitchen, and lush green lawns.
The garages, which can be both heated and cooled, are capable of housing up to 15 cars.
Jackson originally purchased the property in March 2009 for $795,000, and then proceeded to construct the mansion, which was completed in 2011.
The singer still owns over 84 acres in the area, which he purchased in April 2017 for $3.6 million. It’s not clear whether he’s built a new residence on that property or whether he’s decided to relocate elsewhere.
In 2010, Jackson sold a different mansion in Franklin for $28 million, after initially listing it for $38 million.
Jackson, 61, has won two Grammy Awards, 16 Country Music Awards, and 17 Academy of Country Music Awards. He’s sold more than 75 million records worldwide and is one of the best-selling music artists of all time.
Rick French with French King Fine Properties has the listing.
