Singer Sheryl Crow has become the latest celebrity to get caught in the real estate crash. She can’t sell her sprawling Nashville mansion, so she has gone to the extreme — putting it up for auction at a bargain basement price.
Like so many stars who made it big, Crow splurged on huge house with top of the line features. But since the real estate market crash, they have become white elephants.
Now Crow’s house is bargain priced. The bidding has topped out at $1.1 million with the online auction set to end tomorrow night (Nov. 24).
Crow, 48, likely paid $4 million to $6 million for the house in 2006 after renting it for a few years. Initially. she put it on the market in May for $7.5 million. But no takers stepped up.
The sprawling three-story five bedroom house is nestled on 150 acres and is over 10,000-square-feet in size. That’s about three times the normal suburban house.
It has a fourteen stall barn and indoor riding arena and you’ll never have to want for a bathroom. It has seven full baths and one half-bath, in addition to a nanny’s quarters and six-car garage.
But wait there’s more.
The property comes with a 3 bedroom guest cottage.
Crow, the mother of two has lived in the French-style estate, known as “Cross Creek Farm” for six years with sons Wyatt, 3, and Levi, seven months.
For recreation the house has a theatre room, salt water swimming pool and stellar views of the rolling fields surrounding the property.
Crow has won nine Grammys. She recorded her sixth album Detours and part of her seventh, 100 Miles from Memphis at the farm.
