Johnny Cash & June Carter Cash’s Former Hendersonville Home Sells
Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash’s former Hendersonville home is no longer for sale. The property has again been sold, this time to a local couple. According to the Hendersonville Standard, the Man in Black’s property sold for $3.2 million.
The property, which sits on 4.5 acres, was purchased on Jan. 7 by Cristan and Tina Blackman. Apparently, the couple plans to build a house and live on the property. They want to create a home that will make memories for their children and grandchildren, who live nearby.
Cristian told the Hendersonville Standard, “It’s such a majestic piece of property. My wife and I are honored to own it.”
In case you’re not familiar with the property, it’s had an impressive history which adds to its “majesty.” Johnny and June owned the lakefront space for over 30 years. They lived there in a spacious 14,000 square foot home until 2003. In 2005, the Bee Gees’ Barry Gibb bought the home but, in 2007, it caught fire. The fire started while the home was being renovated and it was completely destroyed.
James Gresham, a Texas businessman, was the next one to purchase the property. He bought it in 2014 but then listed it for sale two years later. His plans to recreate the property fell through, due to zoning issues.
