Loretta Lynn’s Historic Nashville House Is for Sale — See Inside! [Pictures]
Loretta Lynn's first Nashville home has gone on the market, offering country music fans a glimpse into a piece of country music history.
Lynn's former residence in Madison, Tenn., a Nashville suburb, is listed at $349,900. The three-bedroom, two-bathroom ranch-style home encompasses 1,820 square feet, and it featured some classic original touches, including knotty pine paneling, cabinets and doors. One of the bathrooms is fully updated, and a room addition on the right side of the house offers plenty of natural sunlight.
Lynn and her husband, Oliver "Doolittle " Lynn, "sold everything to get to Nashville from Washington state" when they bought the house in 1961 with assistance from the Wilburn Brothers and Decca Records.
"It is said they hosted a house warming party and got their Opry friends to chip in to donate household items and appliances. Patsy Cline ordered curtains and ordered furniture to be made," according to the listing.
Lynn and her family lived in the house on Barbara Drive until 1963, when they purchased a 1910-era farmhouse in Goodlettsville. The country icon would ultimately buy a large ranch in Hurricane Mills, about an hour west of Nashville, where she would reside for many years. That ranch is also home to a massive museum that showcases items from Lynn's career. She has also owned several other properties over the years, including a mansion in Kingston Springs, Tenn., that she sold to Jake Owen. In more recent years Lynn has moved from her ranch in Hurricane Mills to a house closer to Nashville so she can be closer to her doctors, as well as family in the area.
