How would you like to get married or sleep in the same mansion that once belonged to the country music legend Reba McEntire? Now that is an option!
The 83-acre estate, called “Starstruck Farm”, was sold for $5 million to Paul H. Burch back in July of this year and now the portion of the property that holds the 12,816 square foot mansion has been put up for sale for a cool $2.95 million and already has a potential buyer.
The unnamed buyer was seeking approval to use house, that resides in Wilson County, Tennessee, as an events venue for weddings, corporate retreats, and charitable gatherings. The proposal, which was scheduled to go before the Wilson County board of zoning appeals meeting on Friday (10/20), was voted in!
Wilson County’s board of zoning appeals approved a request to allow the former home of country music artist and Reba McEntire to be used as an event venue that can also have a bed and breakfast component. That’s right, you can possibly stay in the former home of the “Fancy” singer!
“We think it’s a nice facility and will be an asset to Wilson County,” surveyor Paul Crockett said.
McEntire used to live on the estate when she was with her now ex-husband, TV producer Narvel Blackstock. After the couple split in 2015 the estate was put on the real estate market and McEntire moved into an unknown location. At first the asking price was almost $3 million higher, but eventually sold for $5 million.
The board did approve several stipulations for the home that include:
No more than 500 people on the grounds for an event at one time.
A maximum of 15 overnight guests.
Events to end no later than 11 p.m.
Noise may not exceed 90 decibels.
Surveyor Paul Crockett spoke on behalf of the still unnamed buyer. The contract was subject to approval, according to Crockett.
“It’s a great use for what’s out there,” Crockett said.
Because of the noise and people capacity, it is unlikely that the space will hold any concerts or live performances. Being a concert venue was one thing that some residents guessed at.
Now we just have to stay tuned to see when the gorgeous Bed and Breakfast will open up.
