BUYER: Miley Cyrus
LOCATION: Franklin, TN
SIZE: 6,689 square feet, 5 bedrooms, 4 full and 2 half bathrooms
YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: Miley Cyrus may be just 24 years old but her personal property portfolio is fast approaching bone fide baller status with the $5.8 million purchase of a secluded farm about 20 miles south of Nashville. The mostly wooded 33.5-acre country hideaway, squirreled down a private dirt lane at the end of a discreet rural cul-de-sac just outside the affluent community of Franklin, is anchored by an approximately three-year-old, classic farmhouse-style main residence of 6,689-square-feet with five bedrooms and four full and two half bathrooms.
A zig-zagged, rocking chair lined porch along the front of the house leads to a center hall entry wrapped in rustic, reclaimed wood planks. Unfussy, wide plank wood floors flow throughout the main floor living and entertaining spaces that include a barn-sized living room that stretches more than 30-feet-long with a capacious double-height ceiling lined with exposed wood beams, several four-pane sash windows almost tall enough to step through and a massive stacked stone raised hearth fireplace between built-in bookshelves. The country farmhouse-style kitchen, with reclaimed brick backsplash, double-wide center island with snack bar, high-end finishes, two-toned cabinetry and top grade appliances, opens to a cozy keeping room with antique brick fireplace and a high, wood-clad ceiling. The main floor master suite has a fireplace and wainscoting trimmed bathroom with a claw-footed soaking tub set at an angle into a windowed corner with a leafy view of the surrounding woods and there are four well proportioned and wall-to-wall carpeted family bedrooms on the upper level along with a den/game room with vaulted and wood-beamed ceiling and a large rooftop deck.
Accordion fold French doors open the main living room to a screened porch plenty large enough to accommodate living and dining areas and outfitted with wood-patterned tile floors, a wood-clad ceiling and a chunky, stacked stone fireplace surmounted by a flat-screen television. The screened porch leads out to a swimming pool and spa surrounded by extensive terracing and a small putting green. The property also includes a barn-style building set a good distance from the house that would make an excellent entertainment pavilion, recording studio or housing for guests and/or staff.
Over the last few years the superrich 24-year-old Disney darling turned twerking, tongue-wagging international pop superstar has beefed up her residential holdings in a manner commensurate with someone whose net worth is, by some accounts, estimated to be around $200 million. In June 2011 the then 18-year-old entertainment industry provocateur paid $3.9 million for a modern-minded ranch-style residence in the foothills above Studio City; in April 2015 she shelled out another $5 million for a 5.5-acre equestrian ranch in the guard-gated and celeb-filled Hidden Hills enclave; and in early 2016 she coughed up $2.525 million for a slightly more than two-acre spread in the hills above Malibu’s Point Dume that’s next door to a more substantial, multi-acre estate her longtime boyfriend and fiancée, Australian actor Liam Hemsworth, purchased in July 2014 for just over $6.8 million.
