The sprawling Williamson County estate of country music legend George Jones is for sale.
It will take some money to burn to buy the 18-year-old, 9,700-square-foot home which sits on 78 acres with plenty of tall, tall trees: It's listed at $15 million.
The two story house includes four bedrooms, six full bathrooms and a half-bath. In addition, the property sports two lakes, a swimming pool, five outbuildings (including two caretaker houses), stables, an outdoor entertainment area with kitchen and a nine-stall barn, according to its listing and a website set up by Bailey & Ivy Realtors.
Described as an "equestrian dream," this is definitely not a place where the grass won't grow. From a window up above, the former home of disgraced Tennessee Titan Pac-Man Jones can be seen — the Joneses were once neighbors — before the NFL team decided sometimes you just can't win with the trouble defensive back.
Should Jones and wife Nancy sell the estate for close to the list price, it would be the second-biggest residential sale in at least a decade, bested only by Copart founder Willis Johnson's May 2010 $28 million buy of Alan Jackson's former home. A sale by Tanya Tucker to developers in 2007 came in around $11.5 million and a buy, potentially by Kenny Chesney, in 2009 was $10 million.
Who's going to fill the Jones' shoes? It remains to be seen. The property has officially been listed since late March with little movement thus far — the $15 million original list still stands.
