Just because a home has star power, that doesn’t mean it’s guaranteed to sell like lightning. Take it from Oscar winner Nicole Kidman and her country star husband Keith Urban: It’s been six months since the duo put their Franklin, Tennessee abode on the market—and yet, there seems to be no buyer in sight. Though the couple had originally listed the home for $3.45 million back in December—a modest price tag compared to the $39 million NYC residence they were allegedly eyeing—the pair has since slashed a cool $500,000 off their asking price.
Situated on 36 acres of rolling hills and untouched woods in Franklin—a charming town just south of Nashville—the A-listers’ farmhouse retreat puts outdoor living first. With no shortage of acreage and room to move about outdoors—cue the private walking trails and volleyball court—we’re assuming an abundance of land was high on the couple’s checklist when they first purchased the property back in 2007 for $2.4 million.
Kidman and her hubby’s countryside spread is now listed for a reduced price of $2.99 million, and encompasses the primary four-bedroom residence, a sweet guest cottage, and a barn. Proving itself an idyllic rural retreat, the pair’s gated red brick oasis has all the makings of a celeb-worthy escape from the city. Just see for yourself.
A decidedly bright and sunny space for the Kidman-Urban crew to hang—and, of course, binge watch Big Little Lies—the home’s airy living room welcomes a flood of natural sunlight.
While the neutral space doesn’t bear the traditional markings of a chic farmhouse—like reclaimed wood shelves or shiplap walls—the room’s simple facade and modern fixtures will surely attract buyers in search of a move-in ready residence.
A galley-style kitchen sits adjacent to the light-filled family room. While still a warm and inviting spot to feast, the couple’s modest cookhouse features a rich array of grays, from the saturated cabinets to the speckled granite counters. A quaint breakfast nook nearby offers dreamy views of the home’s private gardens and surrounding foliage.
Several clean-lined guest rooms, a cozy den, and a bright office space also occupy the main floor. Oh, and did we forget to mention that there’s also a fully-equipped gym on this level?
Around every corner, mammoth-sized windows call immediate attention to the property’s lush landscape.
Upstairs, an entire wing dedicated to the sprawling master suite awaits. Featuring a spacious sitting room, separate bedroom, enormous bathroom, and walk-in closet, Kidman and Urban’s countryside dwelling is (unsurprisingly) fit for the stars.
In the master bathroom, his and hers sides are divided by a large soaking tub that overlooks the backyard. With nearly 5,100 square feet to work with, we can’t blame the twosome for going all in on a colossal ensuite.
While Kidman and Urban own a number of homes across the country—including a palatial estate in Nashville—we can’t help but love this rural abode for placing nature at its core. We just hope the A-listers won’t miss their lush acres too much once they make their expected move up north.
