Belle Meade’s Alyne Queener Massey has "withdrawn" her Tyne Boulevard home from the real estate market, according to Fridrich & Clark Realtor Peggy Hutton.

"Alyne just decided she didn’t want to sell," said Hutton, who had been overseeing the potential sale.

On May 17, NashvillePost.com reported that Massey was eyeing the sale of her house, which is located across the street from Belle Meade Country Club. Due to its style and location, the house is indisputably one of the most desirable in all of Nashville.

The process of selling the house was kept very private, which is often the case with homes in its price range. Hutton said the home would have fetched between $7 million and $8 million had it remained on the market.

Ms. Massey, a Columbia, Tenn., native and former society writer in Nashville, also owns homes in Palm Beach, Fla. and The Hamptons. She is the widow of business icon Jack Massey. She was the first woman to serve on the board of Third National Bank and has served numerous local philanthropic causes locally and nationally. She heads The Massey Foundation here in Nashville and has donated funds to Vanderbilt University Law School, whose library is named in her honor.
