Jared Followill Lists Nashville Bachelor Pad
LOCATION: Nashville, TN
SIZE: 8,050 square feet, 5 bedrooms, 5 full and 2 half bathrooms
YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Back in late 2009 Your Mama discussed with the children Grammy-winning Kings of Leon bassist Jared Followill's $1,825,000 purchase of a modern-minded and newly constructed bachelor pad mansion in the leafy and prosperous Green Hills area of Nashville, TN.
Fast forward to last fall (2012) and the 25-year old platinum selling rock star hitched his love wagon to a slightly younger brown haired gal named Martha Patterson and, as rich and/or famous folk often do in the wake of marriage, divorce and/or a new baby, the newly-wedded couple hoisted Mister Followill's former bachelor pad on the market with an asking price of $3,500,000.*
The sizable center island kitchen, outfitted with top-quality finishes and equipped with high-grade appliances, adjoins a family room where a group of caramel-colored tufted leather seating is arranged for optimal viewing of the flat-screen television that's mounted over another raised fireplace with another one of those chatoyant (and ever-so-contemporary) stainless steel surrounds.
The formal living/dining room and the family room both have long banks of glass doors that slide open to a kind of indoor porch with grey tile floors, high ceilings, and an entire wall of wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling windows. French doors on either side of a stone fireplace—one not surprisingly surmounted by a flat-screen boob-toob—open to a small, trellised terrace with a big view.
We confess that we (currently) have no inside intel about where Mister and Missus Followill plan to move but iffen we had to guess—and we don't have to guess, of course—we'd predict they're headed towards and similarly large and (arguably) more family friendly mansion in one of Nashville's more exclusive and expensive zip codes.
*Actually Mister (and Missus) Followill listed the Green Hills property back in April (2013) at the same $3.5 million price but it's now, after several prompts by a couple of in-the-know Nashvillians, that Your Mama is getting around to it. Don't hate. Sometimes, children, it just goes down like that. Anyways...
**Listing details from the time of Mister Followill's purchase put the house at 7,441 square feet. Make of the discrepancy what you will.
