Wow! Dolly Parton‘s home is just what you’d expect. She lives just outside of Nashville, Tennessee, with her longtime husband, Carl Dean, in a 3,324 square feet mansion. The couple reportedly bought their Brentwood home for $400,000 in 1999 and they loved it so much that they never lived permanently in any other U.S. state since.
But with over 10 structures built around the home, we can see why they adore their villa so much. According to the Kiwi Report, Dolly and Carl have a tennis court on their property along with a swimming pool, chapel and tons of gazebos. In fact, the “Dumb Blonde” singer has so much land around her residence that she built a couple of barns, too.
“We have a farm and [Carl is] more than happy keeping the fields mowed, the barns painted and working away on his farm equipment,” she previously told The Mirror about her humble abode. Since Carl doesn’t like the spotlight as much as his wife, he normally tends to stay inside on the property.
“Listen, he’s a homebody and doesn’t like to go out in public,” she said. “He doesn’t particularly care about being around anybody but me. He’s just always asked me to leave him out of all this. He does not like all the hullabaloo.”
If Carl does decide to leave his house though, he’ll have to pass by the big iron gates, which sits at the end of his driveway. From there, you see a large American Flag waving in front of their home. Although Dolly and her hubby love their home, they have also lived in some fabulous places before.
In 2017, they listed their Glencliff home in Nashville for $1.2 million. The place was so luxurious that it came with four bedrooms, three bathrooms, an eat-in kitchen, walk-in closets, four-car garages, a possible AirBnB unit and more.
The couple’s Glencliff and Brentwood properties were very different from the home Dolly grew up in as a little girl. Born in Locust Ridge, Sevier County, Tennessee, the “Jolene” singer and her 11 siblings all lived in a one-room cabin. “These mountains and my childhood home have a special place in my heart,” she wrote outside a replica of her old house in Dollywood. “They inspire my music and my life.”
