Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood Say Bye-Bye to The Bu (EXCLUSIVE)

SELLERS: Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood
LOCATION: Malibu, CA
PRICE: $7,500,000
SIZE: 4,236 square feet, 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms

YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: Several months ago heavily lauded country music veterans Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood — together they can claim 14 Academy of Country Music Awards, 16 American Music Awards, 11 Country Music Awards and 5 Grammys — announced that they planned to pull up their Oklahoma stakes and decamp to Nashville. We’re not sure if the couple plans to sell their vast, 2,000-plus-acre spread outside of Tulsa but thanks to the eagle eyes of Yolanda Yakketyyak we do know the Nashville-bound empty nesters want to sell their getaway in Malibu (CA) because it’s become available with a hefty $7.5 million price tag.

The couple scooped up the property in June 2008 for $4.95 million and property records show the single-story residence was originally built in the late 1950s on a thickly treed and mostly flat, .56 acre land-locked lot in a discreet but swank gated enclave above Paradise Cove where other rich and high-profile home owners include venture capitalist extraordinaire Aviv “Vivi” Nevo and John McEnroe and Patty Smyth who picked up their property just over a year ago for $3.345 million.

Current listing details we peeped and perused show the Brooks-Yearwood’s 4,236 square foot ranch-style beach house was extensively remodeled in 2007 and is currently configured with four bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. The unconventionally-shaped, open concept living spaces have beige stone tile flooring, pitched and beamed ceilings with clerestory windows, a fireplace in the living room, and long banks of over-sized windows and French doors that overlook a flat, tree and shrub-ringed backyard. The sky-lit center island kitchen veers towards “country” with antiqued eggshell-colored cabinetry, speckled and bull-nosed brownish-gray granite counter tops, and a complete collection of top-grade (mostly) stainless steel appliances.

A second living area, which opens off the first, also has a vaulted and beamed ceiling and a massive brick fireplace painted white. There’s a third (gas) fireplace in the master suite that also includes direct access to the outdoors through (at least) two sets of single-pane French doors and a bedroom-sized bathroom with more beige stone tiles, a free-standing soaking tub and a glass-enclosed double-head shower.

Covered and uncovered concrete patios run along the rear of the residence and extend the living space to the outdoors. There’s a free-standing outdoor fireplace at one end plus good-size patch of lawn and a sad little green concrete sport court with a tree growing out of one corner. There is not, it should be noted, a swimming pool, which Your Mama thinks is a real shame in a $7.5 million house, but listing details make sure to note there’s plenty of room to install one. While the house is not on the beach it’s but a short walk (or golf cart ride) down a shared private lane to one of the more sandy and, hence, coveted beaches in the Bu.

In May 2014 there were reports the Brooks-Yearwoods listed a vaguely French Normandy manse inside the gates of an affluent enclave in Owasso, OK for $3.49 million but, honestly butter cups, Your Mama can’t find any connection between the couple and that house in question. We do know, however, that they do own a vast, 2,000-plus-acre spread less than six miles away by car that Your Mama’s research shows encompasses a dozen (or so) parcels purchased in two simultaneous transactions in July 2000 that totaled $7.55+ million and includes several large ponds and an 18,229-square-foot mock-Med macmansion.

We can’t say if the couple plans to shake up their circumstances in Tennessee but our thorough but entirely unscientific research shows they already own a goodly-sized spread in Goodlettsville (TN) — that’s about a dozen miles north of downtown Nashville — that encompasses (at least) a baker’s dozen parcels that total about 300 (or more) acres with a 5,500+ square foot primary residence and a train station-sized warehouse with a giant “g” on the side of it.
