Take a peek inside the three-bedroom, two-bathroom Nashville ranch house that Loretta Lynn once called home.
Built in 1955, the house received some upgrades in the early 1980s when the den, laundry, pantry, and additional bathroom were added. The home still has the original wood flooring, panel doors, pinewood cabinets, a vintage wall mural, and other unique features.
The home boasts 1,800+ square feet and looks straight out of the 60s – which is exactly when Loretta Lynn and her family lived there! The amount of country music history behind its walls can’t be measured, but one thing is certain…if those walls could speak they would have plenty of stories to tell.
Loretta Lynn first moved into this Madison, Tennessee, home in 1961 and was assisted by the Wilburn Brothers and her new record label: Decca Records. It was just a year prior that the Wilburn Brothers helped her to get signed to the label. She had also just been named Billboard magazine’s No. 4 “Most Promising Country Female Artist.”
At this point in her life, she was getting ready for the next big chapter and this was a great first step. According to a post about the house and listing by agent Jason Galaz fo Exit Realty Elite, they had a big housewarming party with their Opry friends to signify this great moment in her life.
“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. Loretta and her husband, a mechanic had sold everything to get to Nashville from Washington state.
Her career started to pick up steam in 1962. Loretta was able to earn enough from a Mid-West tour with the Wilburn Brothers to afford a new Oldsmobile. The Lynn’s live here until the spring of 1963, when they purchased a 1910-era farmhouse on Willis Branch Road in nearby Goodlettsville.”
The home was listed for sale in 2020 for just $349,000 and sold for $337,000 a month after it was listed. Take a peek at some of the photos below!
