Folk/Pop singer Sheryl Crow has done gone and snatched herself a new piece of Music City real estate. According to The Real Estalker, Ms. Crow has just purchased a $5,255,000 Nashville, Tennessee mansion. The new abode is nestled in the affluent, semi-rural area of Forest Hills, south of downtown Nashville. While the main home is quite impressive, Sheryl’s total $5M+ purchase is actually three contiguous parcels that total 50.69 acres.
Sheryl is undoubtedly giddy over her new home and all the acreage, but she still has another unwanted Nashville property in her real estate portfolio. She’s been trying to unload the equestrian estate named Cross Creek Farm since early 2010, to no success. She even put the pastoral palace up for auction in November of 2010 with a minimum bid of $1,000,000. The auction was an obvious flop, as the home remains listed with a $4,500,000 price tag – a 40% price cut from its original list price.
While Sheryl may be singing the real estate blues over this property, its no eye-sore. As you’ll see in the photos above, the home is a beautiful 150-acre sprawl that includes a full equestrian facility with a 14 stall barn and indoor riding arena. Aside from all the horsing around that can be done here, the home also has 5 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, 10,283 square feet, a private in-law/teen/nanny quarters, media room and a music studio (necessary in the country music capital of the world). Sheryl also converted the estate into a “Solar Farm,” which results in an approximately 42% reduction in electricity costs. Someone has to manage this spread, so of course there is a farm manager/guest home included on the property.
