Not only is the house beautiful, but its setting is the star of the show. Sited on the banks of Old Hickory Lake, 25 miles up the Cumberland River from Nashville, the water views beyond the four acres of lawn are exceptional. There is a long gated driveway to the entrance motor court with center fountain. Grounds are dotted with mature trees, lots of emerald lawn, a sand volleyball court, English-style gardens, a conservatory/greenhouse, and a large pool terrace with pavilion for outdoor dining with a fireplace, all accessed via a double-sided curved staircase descending from the upper terrace. There is also a two-boat-covered boathouse.
The neighborhoods surrounding Old Hickory Lake have drawn many Nashville stars over the years such as Taylor Swift, Johnny and June Carter Cash, Conway Twitty, Ricky Skaggs and Loretta Lynn. It has long been a recreational spot for the country performers where tour schedules and other pressures evaporate with fishing, boating, and dining at the marina restaurant.
The 20,121-square-foot house has plenty of space for family, friends and overnight guests. The home’s entrance opens to a grand foyer with soaring double staircases, the heart of the home is filled with family warmth and fun for casual entertaining, particularly the cowboy bar with its saddle bar stools. Included are seven bedrooms, one of which is a large master suite with seating area in front of a fireplace and stunning master bath, eleven baths, family room, movie theater and a children’s room with four built-in bunk beds and good-sized play area. There is a billiard/game room, additional living/family rooms, large gym, a two-level office and an elevator.
Over the last year, Clarkson has experienced both highs and lows: the low being her ongoing divorce, now a year old, which details still aren’t complete. The high is over the top with her Emmy-winning TV talk show, The Kelly Clarkson Show, which will be taking over The Ellen DeGeneres Show time slot when it stops production in 2022. Kelly recently purchased a $5.4 million home in the Toluca Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles, just 12 miles from the studios.
