Rustic home Johnny Cash built for his son hits the market

In the 1980s, renowned country music figures Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash enlisted the expertise of esteemed builder Braxton Dixon to craft a residence for their son, Johnny Carter Cash.

Situated on a sprawling 21-acre plot in Hendersonville, Tennessee, the property, known as Dogwood Estate, boasts a rich history and impressive features.

Now available for purchase, Dogwood Estate is listed at US$6.25 million by Erin Krueger and Mary Spotts of Compass, according to the Robb Report.

This estate holds significance as the former abode of the younger Cash, who later carved his own path as a Grammy-winning singer-songwriter, musician, and producer.

The main residence, nestled amidst lush woodlands, exudes rustic elegance with its two bedrooms, three bathrooms, and expansive living spaces spanning nearly 399sq m.

Crafted by Dixon, the home showcases exposed wood walls, yellow heart pine flooring, and stained glass windows sourced from Europe.

Amish-built stone fireplaces add warmth and character to the interior.

A highlight of the property is the great room, featuring an open kitchen with custom oak cabinetry and a charming built-in dining booth.

Additionally, two spacious porches offer enchanting views of the surrounding trees, resembling serene treehouses.

The primary suite serves as a luxurious retreat, boasting a thirty-foot cathedral ceiling, a fireplace, and a generous dressing area.

Adjacent to the main house stands a historic cabin dating back to 1789.

This separate structure features a large room, lofted area, and inviting porch, offering versatile possibilities as a creative space or tranquil retreat.

Steeped in musical history, Dogwood Estate once belonged to the Cash family before being sold in 1993.

Nearby Sycamore Homestead, another Dixon-built compound, is also available for US$3.3 million, having been acquired by a new owner in 1992.

With its storied past and exceptional features, Dogwood Estate presents a unique opportunity to own a piece of music history in the heart of Tennessee’s countryside.
