Alan Jackson Puts Florida Guest House on the Market
Earlier this month, superstar Alan Jackson and his wife, Denise, sold their 135-acre Nashville property for $28 million. Now the singer is putting another of his properties up for sale -- his guest house in Tequesta, Fla.
The TCPalm reports that the four-bedroom Key West-style cottage with a dock on the Intracoastal Waterway is listed at $1.275 million, which is what Alan paid for it in 2004. Alan and Denise still have the 8,000-square-foot mansion they built on the southern tip of Florida's Jupiter Island. The Tequesta home, built in 1966, has 2,200 square feet inside plus two wraparound balconies totaling more than 1,000 square feet.
"They've done a lot of work to it," says Rob Thomson, with Waterfront Properties, the company selling the home. "With the white sandy beach and coconut palms, it's feels like Margaritaville. It's very charming. They'd have a margarita or a beer, go out to look at the two MacGregors yachts, then come back in and eat and drink some more, all the while Alan Jackson hits kept the party going. It's a great party house."
Thomson also reveals that a recent open house drew about 100 people and caused a "surge of phone calls and hits on our website."
In an exclusive interview with The Boot, Alan talked about the couple's reasons for selling their Franklin, Tenn., home. "We're looking into the future. Once the girls are gone, we're going to probably end up wanting to live in Florida at least part of the year. If our children end up staying around here, we'll probably spend more time here, but we just want to live down there most of the time. This is 140 acres here. We don't really need this much. Once the girls got to be teenagers, we don't really use the property anymore."
Alan's latest single and video is 'Hard Hat and a Hammer.'
