Lady Antebellum Lead Singer Double Whammy: Buy
LOCATION: Brentwood, TN
SIZE: 7,604 square feet, 6 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms
YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Earlier today Your Mama discussed the modern-minded Nashville, TN bungalow recently put on the (open) market by Lady Antebellum lead singer and award-winning songwriter Hillary Scott. This afternoon, country music fans, we take a wee look-see at the proto-typically southern, neo-Colonial Revival(ish) style residence on 3.38 landscaped acres in the semi-rural and decidedly upscale Brentwood area Miz Scott and her new husband—and current Lady A drummer—Chris Tyrrell purchased with a generically- but none-the-less vexatiously-named blind trust, according to The Bizzy Boys at Celebrity Address Aerial, in June (2012) for $1,940,000.
Property records and listing information Your Mama managed to coax out of the interweb indicate custom-built residence recently procured by the Scott-Tyrrells—situated at the tail end of a quiet cul-de-sac about 15 (or so) miles due south of downtown Nashville—was built in 2006 by a prominent local property developer, stands two stories at the front and drops like a real estate mullet to three in the back, measures in at a roomy 7,604 square feet, and contains a total of six bedrooms and eight bathrooms.
A long driveway snakes across rolling lawns and completely landscaped grounds at the front of the stately but inviting mansion where a circular drive arches up to the covered front porch and curls back around and down to a small motor court and attached three-car garage with convenient, direct access to the house.
Interior spaces include (but are not limited to) a narrow but voluminous foyer and stair hall; double-height formal living room with fireplace flanked by built in display cabinets; formal dining room sheathed in a vertical-striped wall covering the Scott-Tyrrells may or may not have chosen to keep; a small study/den/office; a generous, open-plan great room and colossal center-island kitchen; and expansive, lower level entertainment areas in the finished daylight basement that include a family room with brick fireplace, built-in bar area and state-of-the-art home theater lined with gilded pilasters.
Many rooms have direct access to a variety of deep, brick-paved verandas, a screened porch (with brick fireplace for chilly fall evenings) and at least one broad deck that connects via an exterior stairway to the backyard tree-ringed and thickly landscaped backyard complete with dozens of sculpted shrubs, long, flowering beds, and a wide brick accented sunbathing and entertaining terrance around a swimming pool.
As it turns out, Miz Scott isn't the only member of Lady Antebellum to become the new owner of a mutli-million dollar mansion in the Nashville area. Multi-instrument player and singer Dave Haywood—also newly married this year—spent $2,100,000 a few months ago on a 6,750 square foot faux-French Tudor(ish) mansion with 4-5 bedrooms and 6 full and two half bathrooms in Nashville's affluent (and star-stocked) Belle Meade neighborhood. A few months before than lead singer Charles Kelley splashed out $1,600,000 to acquire a 6,682 square foot red brick traditional, also in the Belle Meade nabe, with 4 bedrooms and 4 full and 2 half bathrooms plus a substantial, detached pool/guest house.
*Now children, keep in mind that while property records do reflect a transfer of ownership in the amount of $1,940,000, the property in question was purchased through a blind trust as such we can't say with 100% certainly this house belongs to Miz Scott and Mister Tyrrell. Okay?
