In the Nashville Business Journal this week: news about country megastar Reba McEntire’s lakefront Lebanon estate, which just sold for $5 million.
It’s an impressive property, as you might assume, with 83 acres jutting up to Old Hickory lake, and a nearly 13,000-square-foot home that’s all traditional elegance, plus some exterior bonuses, like a tennis court and pool.
No, it can’t be yours anymore, but the video tour above does offer a full walk-through, in case you’ve ever wondered what it might be like to walk in Reba’s shoes.
As remarkable as McEntire’s estate is, the Middle Tennessee area has a pretty healthy collection of upscale waterfront estates, from homes along Duck River in Centerville to Tims Ford Lake serenity in Winchester.
If you missed out on McEntire’s mansion, but still have Nashville-area waterfront living on your must-have list, here are a few properties on the market now that offer similarly lovely lakeside or riverside amenities.
Sitting in an infinity pool that looks out onto miles of Duck River frontage: not the worst way to live. And it’s just a little sliver of what’s being offered at this absolutely massive property in Centerville, which’ll make a perfect home base for a buyer who’s as outdoorsy as she/he is drawn to luxury. Added bonus: One of the closest neighbors is Grinder’s Switch Winery, whose hand-built log cabin is open for tastings.
It’s a little like your own private island here on this 12-acre Winchester estate, on a peninsula that juts out into Tims Ford Lake, a canopy of mature trees all around. The home itself leaves little to be desired, with almost 6,000 square feet of upscale but unstuffy space. But it’s the surroundings that really make it — the outdoor living spaces looking out onto the lake are absolutely breathtaking.
Some of us want expansive acreage; some of us want just enough waterside property to enjoy. This Buchanan estate is for the latter — just under two acres, all along Kentucky Lake, about two hours from Nashville. The spacious home has cabin coziness with high-end finishes, and the two-slip dock’s all set for your boats.
This elegant Brandywine Farms home takes full advantage of its gorgeous Old Hickory lakefront lot, with wide expanses of windows looking out onto the water throughout, from the living room to the home gym, plus three covered patios and a huge Florida room. And what a view — 300 feet of placid-water shoreline, perfect for homeowners who love to sit and watch the sunset.
This Gallatin home (proudly, an ACRE listing) has some music royalty in its history, too: Its name, Frog Hollow Farm, came in part from legendary songwriter John Prine. And there’s more poetry all around its 32 acres, from the peaceful pond to the tranquil meditation waterfall. Inside, it’s warm and welcoming, with more than 4500 square feet of living space and some don’t-miss details, like chef-grade appliances. With this one, we can say from experience: You have to see this estate in person to fully grasp how extraordinary the property is. And if you’d like to stop by, we’d love to show it to you. Just reach out.
