Country King Alan Jackson Flips Out in Franklin

SELLER: Alan and Denise Jackson
Location: Franklin, TN
Price: $ 3,995,000
SIZE: 14,040 square feet, eight bedrooms, eight full and two half bathrooms

The Nashville, TN real estate community was electrified last year with mustachioed nation music king Alan Jackson and his Christian book-writing wife Denise sold Sweetbriar, their super-luxe 135-acre estate with its 19,000 square foot mansion in rural Franklin, TN, to Willis and Reba Johnson for a teeth-chattering and record-busting $ 28,000,000. Mister Willis might not be a household name for most folks but he’s a wildly wealthy man who manufactured his three and some hundred million dollar fortune thanks to a publicly traded business referred to as Copart that auctions wrecked automobiles for insurance businesses.

According to Your Mama’s southern genuine estate sources, specifically a gal we’ll call Frankie N. Franklin, we’ve discovered that when Mister and Missus Jackson decamped Sweetbriar they settled into one more big but slightly smaller mansion in Franklin that property records reveal was acquired in June 2010 for $ 3,675,000. The towering three-story faux-Tuscan mansion was purchased by way of a business entity that hyperlinks back to the identical Brentwood, TN address where Mister Jackson’s production organization Actual World Tours is located. Mister and Missus Jackson recently flipped their mansion back on the market place less than one particular year after buying the damn point with an asking value of $ three,995,000.

Mister and Missus Jackson’s new digs sit high on a rise in the 600-ish acre guard-gated community of LaurelBrooke about 12 miles south of downtown Nashville. The upscale enclave offers rich residents a four,000 square foot clubhouse with fitness center and media space, a swimming pavilion with two heated pools (one for adults, one particular for toddlers), tennis facilities, basketball court, multi-objective play field, miles of hiking and biking trails and several ponds stocked with fish.

Listing data exhibits Mister and Missus Jackson’s mini-estate spans 2.05 rolling acres and includes a 14,040 square foot “villa” with eight bedrooms, 8 full and two half bathrooms and garaging for six cars plus an connected workshop. According to Miz Franklin, the home was built on spec just prior to the latest financial slump in 2007 by a nicely-acknowledged nearby builder and sat vacant right up until Mister and Missus Jackson came along and snatched it up as a very temporary crib.

Electronic gates open to a stone-paved driveway that curves and climbs up the gentle slope to the front of the imposing stone-built property that rises 3 daunting stories with staircases and terraces lined with tightly-set stone balustrades. The front door is, technically, on the second level but a ground floor entrance tends to make it simple for the lazy to enter the property on the lowest level exactly where they can ascend to the upper levels by way of an elevator.

The voluminous piazza-esque entry has stone floors, double-height ceiling, a dramatic curved floating staircase that any diva or divo would really like to glide down. A glittery chandelier offers the grand but all-beige space a smidgen of necessary sparkle. The primary public spaces incorporate a formal dining space and formal living space with huge carved stone fireplace, double-height ceiling and a second floor gallery that wraps all around the earth tone bathed space.

Much more household friendly areas of the mansion include a colossal chef-equipped kitchen with wood-beamed ceiling and a lot of carved detailing on the cabinets. An adjacent breakfast space opens to a household room with fireplace. A series of tall windows and French doors open out to a loggia that stretches along the back of the home and a heated and cooled veranda with fireplace, outside kitchen and swimming pool facilities. The loggia and veranda both connect the home to the wide flagstone terrace that surrounds the salt water swimming pool and spa. The tree-ringed back yard also has a great patch of perfectly-groomed lawn that Your Mama and the Dr. Cooter’s prolonged-bodied bitches Linda and Beverly would love to get their paws on.

The humongous house also consists of a huge decrease-level games area with constructed-in bar, a fitness area full of state-of-art body torture equipment, a wine cellar and a home theater with leather recliners and tiered seating for optimal viewing.

We’re not really certain where Mister and Missus Jackson will move when they leave their brief-term villa in Franklin but somewhere along the way Your Mama recalls we had been told by someone–we don’t recall who–that the genuine estate size queens only settled her in this tall Tuscan in Franklin although they completed building an additional no doubt gigantic house. Now youngsters, we have no direct understanding of or details about this house the Jacksons are allegedly building so for now that is just a bit of rumor and gossip. Got that?

What is not rumor and gossip is that Mister and Missus Jackson have been on a bit of a true estate roll lately. Not only did they offer Sweetbriar in 2010 and buy the Franklin mansion they now have on the market they also listed their 4 bedroom Essential West-style cottage on the Intracoastal Waterway in Tequesta, FL with an asking price of $ 1,275,000, just five thousand a lot more than property records show they paid for the spot in June of 2004. The property remains on the market without having a reduction in the asking value.

The Jacksons continue to own an ocean front estate at the southern tip of Jupiter Island, FL. The property was initially purchased in 2002 for about $ three,500,000 and several years later the Jacksons razed the current house to make way for an 8,724 square foot Mediterranean mansion with 7 bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms.

Your Mama would like the youngsters to note that while all this celebrity true estate bizness is entertaining and games, devastating floods have ravaged dozens of communities and cities along the Mississippi River and its tributaries, like Nashville and the surrounding suburbs. Your Mama urges concerned citizen-kids to donate a couple of pennies to the Red Cross relief efforts. Visit or call 1-800-RED-CROSS you can also text the word “REDCROSS” to 90999 to make a $ 10 donation. Contributions may possibly also be sent to nearby American Red Cross chapters or to the American Red Cross, P.O. Box 37243, Washington, D.C. 20013.
