Willie Nelson’s former Tennessee cabin, which he built himself, is on the market for $2.5 million.
The 150-acre estate in the countryside of Goodlettsville, Tenn. has only ever had two owners, Nelson and its current residents. The property includes a three-bedroom cabin along with two ponds, a hay barn, and rolling pasture views, ensuring plenty of peace and tranquility.
“Conveniently located just 30 minutes from downtown Nashville, 3108 Greer Road surrounds you with nature, ridgetop views and serenity,” Ross Welch from Zeitlin Sotheby’s International Realty tells Fox Business.
“As you arrive, the property consists of roughly 40 pasture acres up front,” he shared. “And an almost mile-long driveway meandering its way back across another 110 acres of hardwoods back to a quaint cabin formerly owned by one of country music’s most recognizable outlaws, Willie Nelson,” he adds.
The interior of the country legend’s former home features a spacious living area with a cozy fireplace, offering up the perfect spot to gather with friends. The open floor plan also includes the kitchen that faces the beautiful views just outside the window.
Each bedroom offers something unique in its comforting layout, including the loft-style space, which allows residents to overlook the living area and kitchen while also maintaining their own privacy.
The exterior is submerged in stunning greenery, making it an oasis for anyone looking to establish a better connection with nature.
“Truly, this is a special property offering proximity to a major city, peace of mind engulfed in nature, and provides a history many places cannot match,” Welch shared.
This home holds plenty of history within its walls, including the time it was set on fire back in 1970. While Nelson wasn’t inside during the blaze, he did run back in to rescue his beloved guitar, Trigger, and a pound of marijuana. This event led to the inspiration for his song, “Shotgun Willie,” which served as the title song of his 16th studio album in 1973.
A few years after the fire, Nelson moved back to his home state, Texas where he started a new, authentic chapter of his career by growing out his hair and beard and making music the way he wanted to.
Willie Nelson has accomplished a lot since this chapter of his career and even to this day, he continues to show no signs of slowing down.
Next month, he will appear in Dolly Parton’s new holiday film, Dolly Parton’s Mountain Magic Christmas. This movie is scheduled to air Thursday, Dec. 1 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
In August, Nelson was seen filming with Parton at Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Guests including Jimmy Fallon, Willie Nelson, Miley Cyrus, Jimmie Allen and Billy Ray Cyrus are also set to be included in the new film.
According to an NBC synopsis, “this sentimental holiday movie takes viewers on a journey through time as Parton is visited by the Three Wise Men. The entertainer is taught valuable lessons, ultimately challenging her notions of the real magic of Christmas.”
While Nelson continues to perform in various shows, he currently has no scheduled dates on the books.
