A little over two decades ago, Trisha Yearwood acquired a historic estate on the outskirts of Nashville. There, in what she has referred to as her “sanctuary,” the Grammy-winning country music star filmed 11 seasons of her popular Food Network cooking show “Trisha’s Southern Kitchen.” She also whipped up her very first home-cooked meal of fettuccine alfredo for fellow country musician Garth Brooks, who would go on to become her husband in 2005.
Yearwood told People Magazine in an exclusive interview that the minute she stepped foot inside, she knew this was the place. “Even when I moved to Oklahoma,” she said, “I just couldn’t part with this house. Garth and I would make the house home base when we were in Nashville working on music or visiting friends.”
Now, 23 years later, the singer, cookbook author, TV personality and entrepreneur is finally ready to part with her longtime home and is putting the property up for sale, asking $4.5 million — or $2.7 million more than she paid for the place back in summer 2000. But the premises have been extensively remodeled and modernized during the couple’s tenure, most notably with an updated gourmet kitchen outfitted with top-tier Asko, Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances.
Built way back in 1920, the classic white wood-sided and stone-accented structure is tucked securely behind two gated entrances, on a park-like parcel of land spanning over 4 acres within the exclusive Brentwood neighborhood pocket. Inside, five bedrooms and seven baths are spread across a little more than 6,500 square feet of two-level living space, which is adorned throughout with a mix of brick and hardwood floors, freshly painted interiors and an elevator. There’s also a nine-camera surveillance system, plus numerous outdoor spaces ideal for enjoying morning coffee, afternoon tea and cocktails, per the listing held by Lorie Lytle of Fridrich & Clark Realty.
Especially standing out on the main floor is a chandelier-topped foyer displaying a traditional staircase, which flows to a fireside living room on one side and library boasting a bookcase-flanked fireplace on the other. Other highlights include a family room sporting a fireplace and French doors opening to the grounds, along with a light-filled sunroom and formal dining room with built-in hutches. The aforementioned culinary center also hosts an expansive eat-in island and accompanying breakfast nook.
Elsewhere on the bottom floor is an en-suite guest bedroom, and a master retreat flaunting a private porch, as well as dual walk-in closets and baths. Three additional bedrooms with their own baths can be found upstairs; and outdoors, the grassy and tree-laced backyard is spotlighted by a freeform pool. An adjacent pool house with a kitchenette and bath is attached to a two-car garage.
