One year before Tammy Wynette and George Jones divorced and went their seperate ways, Jones purchased an elegant estate for them in Nashville, Tennessee. Wynette held on to the home after the couple divorced, and used it as her primary residence until 1992. Other former owners were legendary banjo player Earl Scruggs and drummer Scott Underwood, known for his work in the band Train.
Now, someone else can have the chance to live in Wynette’s former home, which is called First Lady Acres. The nine-bedroom, nine-bathroom house recently went on the market with a listing price of $5.5 million.
First Lady Acres was constructed in 1970, and features a 10,000-square-foot home and over eight acres of land. Outside, residents can soak up the Tennessee sun while relaxing at the pool or cabana. While you’re at it, you could fix yourself a tasty meal at the convenient outdoor kitchen.
Avid golf players can practice their favorite sport without ever leaving the comfort of their own home. That’s right, First Lady Acres comes along with a putting green.
The property is also ideal for those who travel or would like to welcome guests from out of state. There’s a helicopter landing pad located at the estate, a feature that you won’t find at many homes!
Inside, the home features an open floor plan throughout. Some of the special rooms include a home gym, a complete chef’s kitchen, a butler’s pantry, and a steam room.
Whoever ends up purchasing First Lady Acres should consider themselves lucky. It’s a lovely home with so much history behind it!
Although Jones and Wynette divorced after they bought they home, they remained friends until Wynette’s death in 1998. The two collaborated many times over the years, and actually released a single with the word “house” in it. That single was “Two Story House,” which was released in 1980. You can tune in below to watch them perform the song together.
