Country singer Trisha Yearwood is saying goodbye to her Southern manor home in Nashville.
Listed for $4.5 million, the home is located in Nashville’s upscale Brentwood neighborhood—just 10 minutes from the city’s iconic Music Row. Yearwood fans might recognize parts of the home, namely the kitchen, from her Food Network cooking show, “Trisha’s Southern Kitchen.” It was in this kitchen she filmed 11 of 17 seasons of the Emmy-winning culinary series—a total of 149 episodes—with famous guests like Reba McEntire, Kelsea Ballerini, Ashley McBryde, Kristin Chenoweth, Danica Patrick, and many others.
Yearwood purchased the home in 2000 and lived there for several years before moving to Oklahoma with her husband, country singer Garth Brooks.
“The house had been built in the 1920s and had all the charm of an older home with the bells and whistles of a new house, because the previous owners had added on,” Yearwood exclusively tells Forbes. “I really just moved in, painted a couple of rooms and was good to go. The house is warm and welcoming. When we moved back to Nashville in 2014, we started shooting the cooking show here, and it was wonderful.”
The Grammy award-winning artist, who currently resides with her husband in another part of Nashville, says that the home feels world’s away but is close enough to entertainment and shopping, both in Nashville and the suburb of Franklin, that it feels like its own little world.
“There’s a fence and trees and a little enchanted forest,” she says. “To have this acreage that close to town is pretty great. If I’m working on an album I could get to the studio in 10 or 15 minutes, but still feel like I had my own kind of respite.”
Set on 4.42 acres, the home has 6,553 square feet of interior living space with five bedrooms and seven full bathrooms. There are two gated entrances, a pool, and a pool house with a bathroom and kitchenette, as well as covered outdoor dining. The traditional Southern manor house is fitted for modern living with all the charms of Southern homes, like multiple porches, a sunroom, three fireplaces, a formal sitting room, gathering room, formal dining room, and an extended kitchen area that she redid when she was shooting her cooking series.
“The kitchen was nice, but we wanted to open it up for shooting and lightings we took a wall out and made a beautiful breakfast nook area to put cameras in,” she says. “The kitchen is the heart of every home for me and where we spend most of our time, so I really love how that turned out.”
The kitchen features Wolf appliances including a six-burner cooktop, double ovens, a warming drawer, 30-inch gourmet microwave, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, and Asko dishwasher. The spacious owner’s suite is located on the main floor and has two separate bathrooms and a porch. There’s another guest room on the main floor and more bedrooms upstairs, which can be used as a storage space, studio, or flex space. There’s also a wood-paneled elevator that accesses the second floor and a detached two-car garage.
Yearwood has years of memories with her family here, whether it was her nieces and nephews playing in the ‘secret’ rooms or her dad watching westerns in the living room.
