Dixie Chicks’ Natalie Maines Sells Austin Home
According to Variety, Maines and her husband, Agents of SHIELD star Adrian Pasdar, purchased the Colonial-style farmhouse in the affluent Pemberton Heights neighborhood in 2000 for an undisclosed amount. The house was built in 1938, but has been updated and expanded since. The 4,891 square-foot home includes four bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms, oversized living spaces, a cook’s kitchen, hardwood floors throughout and an original brick fireplace in the family room. The grounds include gardens, lawns and a grotto-style swimming pool with spa, waterfall and integrated slide.
The Houston Chronicle reports the property was last valued at $1.5 million. The couple sold the house for $1.82 million on Jan. 6. Martha Small, a real estate agent with Austin Portflio Real Estate, was the listing agent.
Variety writes that the couple also sold a 3,700-square-foot condo in New York’s West Chelsea Gallery District four years ago for $4.34 million, but still own a six-bedroom, six-bathroom home in L.A.'s Brentwood area, which they purchased in July 2007 for $5.6 million.
Maines has been mostly out of the spotlight since the Dixie Chicks released their most recent album, Taking the Long Way, in 2006. The group have toured sporadically since then, and in 2013 Maines released a solo album titled Mother. She says although the trio have not broken up, their future is uncertain, citing the massive fallout they experienced after she made her now-infamous comments about then-President George W. Bush in 2003.
“I feel like things were tainted permanently," she told Howard Stern in 2013.
