Alan Jackson sold his massive estate in Williamson County, TN last year, and now his lakeside retreat on Center Hill Lake near Nashville is on the market too. It’ll only set you back a little more than $4.9 million bucks and comes with a 6,100 square foot main house, a guest house, a cabin and a houseboat designed to resemble a riverboat.
“Center Hill has always been a retreat and a sanctuary, especially during the week,” Alan tells The Tennessean. “It’s so quiet and peaceful. I’ve started and finished many songs there. And I’ve come up with several ideas for songs while I was behind the wheel of my boat.”
The home has seen its share of celebrity guests over the years too. Shania Twain came up and performed an acoustic show for fans during one of Alan’s shows on the lake.
“She’d hit it big already. She was on her way to being a huge star, but she hadn’t really toured yet, and she came out there,” Alan says. “That was really an event.”
Carrie Underwood and her husband Mike Fisher visited Alan and his wife Denise at the lake house last summer.
As for their new place near Nashville, Alan and Denise traded their 135-acre spread for a seven or eight acre plot of land. Their new house is just as big as the old one though, coming in at about 17,000 square feet.
