Billionaire Tommy Frist Jr. Takes $32M for Nashville Estate

An eminent estate fit for healthcare royalty has sold in Nashville, as HCA Healthcare co-founder Dr. Tommy Frist parted with his pedigreed 50-acre compound for $32 million. Situated in exclusive Belle Meade, the 2001 mansion elegantly balances tradition and buoyancy across nearly 20,000 square feet.

Graceful symmetry reigns in the red brick Georgian exterior with its soaring neoclassical portico. Inside, a cavernous great room’s cathedral ceilings and wood-paneled library brim with imposing grandeur. Yet charming spaces like the cottage-style kitchen and latticed tea room inject lightness into the home’s sophisticated breadth.

Sprawling across the grounds, patios, porches, and breezeways further shape a world of refined living. A pool, tennis court, and copper-roofed gazebo provide recreation amid 50 pastoral acres. Brick pathways meander through lawns and gardens, culminating in idyllic vistas courtesy of hidden ha-has.

This harmonious juxtaposition of styles embodies the compound’s spirit—one foot rooted in order and tradition, the other in beauty and tranquility. Much like Frist himself, whose business acumen built a healthcare empire while philanthropy bettered many communities.

After initially listing for $50 million in 2022, the $32 million sale caps the estate’s sojourn on the market. For Frist, reputedly Tennessee’s wealthiest citizen with a net worth around $23 billion, the next chapter begins. But this indelible country manor will continue channeling southern grace and grandeur for its new owners.
