Here’s a chance to live in “My Tennessee Mountain Home.”
A home set in the verdant farmland of Sevierville, TN, and once owned by country superstar Dolly Parton, as well as her parents before her, has become available for $3.5 million.
Word of the beloved musician’s former home on the market spread quickly on social media, making this one of the most viewed listings on Realtor.com®.
The property is close to Douglas Lake and its 550 miles of shoreline.
Dolly Parton’s former home is more than a century old.
Parton’s parents, Lee and Avie Lee Parton, bought the 1,548-square-foot home in 1984. The three-bedroom, 2.5-bath home was built in 1917 and comes with 62 acres. Parton took ownership after her parents died in 2003, and the home was later sold to a family friend.
Known as Red Top, the property presently serves as an event venue.
In a nod to Parton’s long history of philanthropy and their own desire to support the local community, the homeowners earlier this year offered the event venue for free to brides and grooms who were displaced by the wildfires that raged near the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
The space features a large dining room, porches, and outbuildings such as a barn with a restroom. The lawns are expansive lawns, and visitors are treated to views of the beautiful countryside.
Parton’s presence is still prominent here in the home’s decor and objects.
Parton was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1999. She plays multiple instruments proficiently — fiddle, banjo, saxophone, piano, harmonica, and guitar. She has written thousands of songs and garnered more than 50 Grammy nominations, winning 10 times.
What’s more, Parton at 76 is still going strong as the only country artist to have a top 20 hit on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart for six consecutive decades.
