Joe Don Rooney, lead guitarist and singer of the country pop trio Rascal Flatts, has listed his marvelous home in Brentwood, the affluent suburb of Nashville, Tennessee for $1.679M. He and his wife Tiffany, former Playboy Playmate, bought the mansion in October 2007 for 1.5 million. The estate is situated 18 miles south of Nashville and is set on 0.75 acres/almost 8,000 square feet in an exclusive gated golf community.
The famed firm McAlpine, Booth & Ferrier Interiors decorated the three-story luxury home which features four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. The “very un-Nashville” and “classy casual” abode, as Rooney himself called it, also boasts grand double front doors, a grand foyer, formal dining room, chef eat-in kitchen, wood flooring, very high ceilings and built-in fireplaces, walk-in closets, an easy access elevator. The outside area includes a swimming pool and an entertainment terrace. At the basement there is a custom designed state-of-the-art recording studio which he calls his “Man Land,” complete with a pool table and bar.
Among the high-profile residents there are Jay DeMarcus, his bandmate and fellow country musician, Keith Urban with his wife, Nicole Kidman.
