Country music superstar Taylor Swift has listed her Nashville, Tennessee home for sale just months after she reportedly purchased the property for her parents.
Swift, who in April purchased a home in Beverly Hills for a reported $3.975 million, is named by Forbes as the seventh most powerful celebrity of 2011 with earnings topping $45 million.
At only 21 years of age, the chanteuse has made a name for herself in the music industry with her autobiographical songs about young love and heartbreak. Her deeply personal lyrics have made her a hit with young and old alike, translating into huge revenues for Swift and her family. She may be young, but the songstress is diving head first into the world of luxury real estate.
Listed at $1.45 million, Swift's Music City abode is bursting with character and charm. The Tudor-style home was built in 1925 and features 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths and spans over 4,900 square feet. The property has been renovated and offers a large, white kitchen with stainless steel appliances, vaulted ceilings and a double range/oven with range hood. The master bath is finished in gorgeous white marble and offers a freestanding porcelain tub with views of the yard.
For all the modern updates, the home has lost none of its rugged character. Hardwood floors run through every room and built-ins add extra storage and character. Both the library and dining room have detailed molded ceilings which only add to the vintage appeal. A wood burning fireplace in the cozy living room provides the perfect area for respite after a long month of touring or a hard day at the office.
Swift's is one of many older, historic homes in Nashville's gorgeous Whitland neighborhood which is located only minutes from East Nashville. The area boasts tree lined streets, friendly neighbors and a tight-knit community atmosphere. The active Whitland Area Neighborhood Association puts on an annual tour of the historic homes, and this stunning compound is sure to be a draw.
Nashville has been Swift's home since the age of 14 when her family moved there to give her a shot at musical stardom. And it's no wonder â€" nicknamed "Music City," Nashville is home to the Grand Ole Opry, the Country Music Hall of Fame and the annual CMA Music Festival. With its perfect mix of musical history and architectural embellishments, Swift's country home is sure to be a hit with potential buyers.
