Kelly Clarkson has been based in Los Angeles since she took up hosting duties for her Emmy-winning daytime talk show in 2019 and the singer is now dropping the price of her Tennessee lake house – originally US$8.75 million – to $6.95 million ($8.9 million).
According to Top Ten Real Estate Deals, Clarkson has owned the Nashville-area home – which boasts a full view of Old Hickory Lake and a lawn that extends to the water’s edge – for almost a decade.
But since she’s been gone for a couple of years, the American has clearly opted to drop the price to ensure a sale, rather than let it sit idle.
The seven-bedroom family friendly home occupies a 1.6-hectare plot and includes a two-boat boathouse with lift, a beach volleyball court, outdoor children’s play area and a pool-spa terrace with a covered pavilion for outdoor dining by a fireplace.
The home, decorated by Clarkson, is accessible via a long-gated driveway to the entrance car park, which features a centre fountain.
Its entrance has an impressive foyer with soaring double staircases. The home has 1870 sq m of living space, and has 11 bathrooms.
The master suite has its own seating area in front of a fireplace and an opulent master bath. In addition to the more formal rooms, theatre, game room, gym and two-story office, there is also a cowboy bar with saddle-bar stools.
Clarkson is living on the West Coast while filming her weekly talk show, The Kelly Clarkson Show and will continue as a judge on The Voice in 2021.
The Miss Independent singer is due to release a new album soon, which is rumoured to cover themes including her marriage and impending divorce from husband, Brandon Blackstock.
Clarkson looks set to have a busy year ahead of her, having already been named as a forthcoming recipient of a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and she also hopes to start her Las Vegas residency, which was postponed from 2020 due to coronavirus concerns.
The lake house, in Hendersonville, is less than 30 minutes’ drive from downtown Nashville.
Jack Miller of Bob Parks Realty in Brentwood, Tennessee holds the listing.
