Willie Nelson’s former home in Nashville is on the market for $2.5 million, and pictures show a beautiful country retreat that’s a real part of country music history.
Nelson’s 3-bedroom, 1-bath hand-built log cabin that the country music icon built for himself sits on 150 rolling, rural acres in Goodlettsville, Tennessee, just half an hour from Nashville.
The main residence, called “The Hideaway,” centers around a great room that includes a living room and kitchen, while the loft also has a sleeping area and a stone fireplace. Exposed beams and a raised roof give the cabin a sense of spaciousness.
In 1970, the cabin caught fire while Nelson was not inside, sparking a famous story in which the Country Music Hall of Famer rushed to the house to rescue his beloved Trigger guitar and a pound of marijuana. Nelson was also living on this property when the events that inspired his song “Shotgun Willie”, the title track of his 16th studio album in 1973, took place.
The land surrounding the cabin offers a breathtaking slice of unspoiled Tennessee and provides maximum quiet and privacy.
“Conveniently located just 30 minutes from downtown Nashville, 3108 Greer Road surrounds you with nature, ridgetop views and serenity,” Ross Welch of Zeitlin Sotheby’s International Realty told Fox Business.
“When you arrive, the property is about 40 acres of pasture to the front,” he said. “And a nearly mile-long driveway that winds its way back through another 110 acres of hardwoods back to the quaint cabin formerly owned by one of country music’s most recognizable outlaws, Willie Nelson,” he adds.
“Truly, this is a special property that offers proximity to a big city, peace of mind in nature and offers a history that cannot be matched by many places.”
According to real estate websites, the asking price drops to $15,314 per month.
Welch and Matt Lawson have the listing for Sotheby’s. The property has only two owners: Nelson and the people he sold it to.
