Elvis has Graceland, Loretta has her haunted plantation in Hurricane Mills, and Alan has his lavish lake house. Country legend Alan Jackson listed his lakefront residence in Clarksville, Georgia, in 2017 for $6.4 million. While the price is nothing short of staggering, it actually didn’t come close to their former home in Nashville. Jackson and his wife purchased the Music City mansion for a cool $28 million— which they later sold in 2010.
According to Zillow, the family’s former waterfront home sold for $6,025,000. The house, which was constructed in 2008, consists of 7,687 square-foot and sits on just over an acre of perfectly manicured lawns. A stone exterior makes the house perfectly blend in with nature. The Jacksons bought the property in 2014 for an undisclosed amount.
Inside, the owner has five bedrooms and six full bathrooms, with three half baths. Other features include a main floor master suite, splendid lake views from all bedrooms, a terrace level family room with a bar, and a game area.
The open floor plan gives you plenty of space for social gatherings, with a family room, dining area, and a lakeside screened porch. Beautiful craftsman-style cabinetry and wood finishes also add to the rustic feel of the house.
Alan Jackson’s Luxurious Lakeside Home
When you dock your boat, you’ve also got a complete outdoor bathroom. The house is perfect for outside entertainment, complete with a covered porch, a flagstone patio with a fire pit, and a multi-level boathouse with a dock. You know Jackson must’ve put on some fantastic impromptu outdoor concerts for his lucky guests.
For those hoping to track down the property, there’s some bad news. The home sits in a very exclusive lakeside community and is also only accessible only with gate access to the stone driveway.
If you’re scratching your head, wondering why the star sold the pad, you’re not alone. According to Taste of Country, the family has sold a few of their residences in the last few years. Their previous listings included their Florida estate, which sold for $15 million. They also had another lake house in Tennessee, which they sold for nearly $5 million.
“Mr. Jackson did major renovations to the house, including opening up the great room, updating the kitchen, putting in a fireplace on the porch, and redesigning the landscape,” agent Julie Barnett told Mansion Global. “The floor-to-ceiling windows offer spectacular views of sunsets, boats on Lake Burton, and Appalachian mountains.”
