Taylor Swift Flips Out in Nashville
SELLER: Taylor Swift
LOCATION: Nashville, TN
SIZE: 4,929 square feet, 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms
YOUR MAMAS NOTES: She may be only barely old enough to legally imbibe a boozy beverage but 21 year old country queen Taylor Swift has already won four Grammys, five Academy of Country Music awards, six Country Music Association awards and a staggering 12 Billboard Music Awards. The screamingly successful youngster with the long curly locks has also, already, become a bit of a regular in all the naughty celebrity real estate gossip columns.
In late 2009 young Miss Swift–then just barely old enough to vote–shelled out around two million bucks for an airy duplex penthouse pad at The Adelicia building in downtown Nashville, TN. Her 4,062 square foot crib features a double height living room, four bedrooms each with private pooper, a second level media room, an open plan kitchen and a narrow balcony with city lights view that wraps around two sides of the penthouse's lower level.
In mid-April 2011 word slipped down the celebrity real estate gossip highway that Miss Swift had purchased a 1925 red-brick mini-mansion in Nashville, TN way back in September of 2010. Property records show the 4,929 square foot residence was purchased through a blind trust for $1,400,000. Most reports from the time suggested that the house was actually purchased for (or even by) Miss Swift's wealthy parents.
Just a week or so after her Nashville real estate news hit the blogs and tabs it came to light on this here very blog of Your Mama's that Nashville-based Miss Swift had done snatched up a bucolic and secluded mini-compound tucked into the hillside in one of the many valleys and ravines that stretch back into the mountains behind Beverly Hills, CA. Property records show the country cute cottage cost Miss Swift a very grown up for $3,550,000.
Today, thanks to a friendly tattletale down in Nashville whom we'll call Wanda Letyouknow, we've just learned that Miss Swift–and/or her parents–have flipped the recently acquired Nashville residence back on the market with an asking price of $1,450,000. It doesn't take any manipulating of the well-worn beads on Your Mama's bejeweled abacus to see that the current asking price is just fifty grand more than Miss Swift paid for the property less than a year ago.
Current listing information shows the 4,929 square foot traditional includes 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms while online resources we have on file from 2010 state the house contains either 4 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms or 3 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms depending on where you look.
Rather than try to reinvent the snark-wheel with new pithy remarks we're just going to send anyone interested back to our previous discussion about the property from mid-April.
Sober and eagle-eyed children may have already noted that listing photos do not, as per current listing information, "reflect the latest renovations of this completely walled estate." What that means is that before any of you kids put on your decorative criticism caps you need to keep in mind that the day-core shown in the listing images is not the day-core of Miss Swift and/or her parents but rather that of the previous owner. Got that?
The Nashville property that the Swift clan just flipped back on the market is not the only Tennessee spread they own. In March 2004 according to prop records, Mom and Pop Swift coughed up $790,000 for an 8,396 square foot lake front mansion in historic Hendersonville, about 20 miles northeast of downtown Nashville.
