YOUR MAMAS NOTES: It’s been widely reported by real estate gossips that in November 2007 singer/songwriter Michelle Branch sold off her big suburban house in Calabasas, CA, packed her gee-tars and headed to Nashville, the center of the country music universe. Property records reveal that back in June of 2006, Miz Branch and her much older bass playing beau Teddy Landau purchased a $290,000 condo at the Lofts at Werthan Mills in Nashville’s Germantown, where Your Mama presumes that there were once a lot of German people living.
Loft living must not agree with Miz Branch and Mister Landau because a recent report in the Nashville Post reveals that the strummin’ and pickin’ couple scooped up a single family house in the tony and old money section of Nashville called Belle Meade. According to the Nashville Post and listing information kindly provided to Your Mama by the Tennessee Talker, Miz Branch’s new corner lot digs measure 3,706 square feet and feature 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms.
Unfortunately for the children, Your Mama was unable to locate any interior photos of the recently built stone faced cottage that includes an attached two car garage, an eat in kitchen and a first floor master bedroom. And it’s thanks to the above mentioned Tennessee Talker that we have the lovely exterior photo of Miz Branch’s new Nashville nest.
We don’t mean to minimize her considerable success, but to be honest children, Your Mama doesn’t know the first thing about Miz Branch, her music or why she and Mister Landau would find it advantageous to relocate to Nashville. Is she a country songstress? Is he a country crooneer? Whatever the case we wish the two of them a happy home in horsey and hoity toity Belle Meade.
