Reba Sold Her Nashville Estate- And Now You Can Stay There

Taste of Country

We all have dreams of having the lifestyle of the rich and famous, but now we can actually live like one.

Earlier this year, Reba McEntire sold her lakefront estate in Lebanon, Tennesse, which sits 30 miles easy of Nashville, for $5 million.

This 83-acre property, which is known as Starstruck Farm, features a 12,816 square-foot home.

In it there are seven bedrooms,

five full bathrooms,

a chef's kitchen,

a home theater,

a wine room,

an eight-car garage, and a tennis court,

a pool,

a guest house,

a barn, equestrian center with indoor and outdoor riding areas.

Originally listing the house for August 2016 for $7.9 million, she ended up settling for a $5 million price tag and it looks to be well worth it!

Local businessman Deron Lichte bought 18-acres of the the Starstruck Farm estate earlier this month for $3.1 million.

But what his plans for the property have us all excited!

Whether it's her Christmas album or an eye shadow palette, we have never encountered anything Reba has done, that we haven't love! Now it looks like we can become a house-guest at Reba's former estate and complete our bucket list.

Reba lived in the beautiful home with her husband and manager, Narvel Blackstock until they split in late 2015.

Their divorce, after 26 years of marriage, came as a surprise to the country singer.

"The divorce was not my idea. I didn't want it in any shape, form or fashion," the 60-year-old singer said. "So it was really hard to make the adjustment when someone's not happy. I just want everybody to be happy in their lives, because our lives are too short to be miserable."

Deron plans to use Starstruck Estate as a luxury event venue that will be open for weddings, galas, charity fundraisers, corporate retreats, songwriting retreats, family reunions and more!

The residence can accommodate up to 500 people with up to 15 overnight guests. It has not been revealed when the anticipated opening date of the grand home will be.

Deron is CEO and owner of Food Warming Equipment, a commercial food-service equipment provider that is growing worldwide.

The rest of the property is owned by Paul H. Burch, who is currently developing a 15-home subdivision named Cherokee Meadow.

"It sounds like a great use of the property," says local real estate agent Lisa Peebles of Nashville Luxury Estates.

"People will go and want to stay just because it's Reba's former residence and she's country music royalty," Peebles says. "That will be a big draw."
