Franklin, Tennessee, the part of town classified as Leipers Fork, has really become the Hollywood Hills of the South.
Not with mega-mansions, though, but mega-farms.
As a born and raised Nashvillian, the rolling countryside filled with horses and cows are some of the most beautiful parts of the Nashville Metropolitan area, just a short 30-45 minute drive outside the city…it is a hidden gem.
Justin Timberlake is one celebrity among many who have land in this treasured part of Middle Tennessee…well, not for long, Mr. Timberlake hopes.
Justin Timberlake recently listed his 126-acre lot for sale for a cool $10 million. The undeveloped piece of land looks more than stunning.
“FEATURED LISTING – 126 acres in Franklin, TN that is less than a half mile from Leipers Fork Village.
Rare large tract offering in the most desirable area of Middle Tennessee. Three different ridgetops provide views of Leipers Creek Valley and the owner’s fifty acres of pasture and wildlife food plots.
Dobyns Branch Creek greets you at two entrances. Miles of new trails cut with strategic sundowner locations in the woods. Large acreage neighbors provide privacy and peacefulness.
Fishing pond, creeks, pastures and location make this an investment quality property.”
With a single airstream camper shown on the lot, the opportunities of what to do with this place are endless. One of the neat features about Leipers Fork is that folk in that area really treasure the landscape, and many lots are listed in Land Trusts so that it cannot be commercially developed.
Even if this piece of land could be, good luck getting death threats from your neighbors, the new owner would be instantly shunned from the community.
Other names found with properties in this area include Garth Brooks, Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, and more non-country music folks.
Timberlake has not developed the property since he bought it back in 2015 at $4 million. The pop singer will make a gross of $6 million for just upkeep on the land, assuming a bidder doesn’t come in with a higher offer.
That’s a nice chunk of change…and if that doesn’t show you how crazy the real estate market in Middle Tennessee is right now, I’m not sure what will.
