Celebrity Real Estate: Reba McEntire, Michael J. Fox, Brian Wilson
By Laura Vecsey
Reba No Longer ‘Starstruck’
A year after selling her Beverly Hills mansion, country music & entertainment juggernaut Reba McEntire is looking to sell her Nashville spread. The 83-acre property is listed for $7.9 million and is located on a street name perfect for a country tune: Old Hickory Lane.
Reba’s place is called Starstruck Farm and includes a 12,800-square-foot Colonial house that overlooks a lake. Fresh off a divorce from her husband of 26 years, Reba is clearly ready for a new start, so it’s goodbye to the farm and all the amenities – which include a tennis court, swimming pool, guest house, 8-car garage and equestrian center with a 16-stall barn and 12 fenced paddocks.
Michael J. Fox Kissing Connecticut Goodbye
The 72-acre Connecticut spread where Michael J. Fox and his wife, Tracy Pollan, raised their kids is on the market. The list price is $4.25 million for the sprawling estate, which includes a custom-built home where the family had lived since 1997.
The 5,000-square-foot home is noted for a two-story great room that overlooks rolling fields and a pond. The home has 6 bedrooms and 5 baths, but Fox particularly likes the rustic fishing shack on the property. It’s an immensely nice property, without any Hollywood pretension.
Maybe This Time It’s Good Vibrations For a Sale
For a music icon who originated the smooth harmonics of the Malibu beach scene, Brian Wilson picked a lake not the ocean by which to live. Now, with the Beach Boys epic “Pet Sounds” celebrating its 50th anniversary, Wilson is still trying to sell his Arrowhead Lake home. It’s been on the market for a few years and is now listed for $3.299 million.
The 4,500-square-foot home contains 4 bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms and sports teak floors and vaulted, beamed ceilings. A wall of windows lends for epic views of the water. And, if you’re too tired from a night of music making or music listening courtesy of the first-class sound system, there is an elevator.
