When the dust settled, Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman accepted an offer of $2.7 million for their retreat in rural Tennessee.
The couple had been wrestling with marketing the greater Nashville-area property for about two years; the first time around they hitched it to a $3.5 million ask which well and truly stalled it out, warranting a series of cuts that eventually whittled down the price to $2.75 million.
What the buyer opted for was a little escapist compound with 36 acres of breathing room, two houses—one of which was purposed as a guesthouse during the power couple’s tenure of ownership—and a barn, for a little Nashville cred.
The main house was built in the late 1980’s, and is a two-story brick Colonial that has been heavily renovated with skylights, open-concept living spaces, cathedral ceilings, and plentiful glass. Floors are dark-finished plank, which gives stability to a renovation style that favors the light and airy. In-wall shelving, tray ceilings, and a few architectural surprises emerge from the revision; the window-bordered second-floor hallway that leads to the master suite is a lovely design flourish.
The 5,100 square-footer contains four bedrooms and six baths altogether. An office, a creative workspace, and a home fitness room keep the R&R from becoming a default, and the smaller home appears to have been used as a music studio.
Kidman and Urban may have moved away from this property, but they own another, larger property in the Nashville area. The couple wed in 2006; they have two children.
