Alan Jackson: See Inside the Country Icon’s Old Lakeside Mansion

by Halle Ames

Just outside Nashville, Alan Jackson built his dream home, and let us tell you, it is beautiful. Take a tour inside the luxurious lakeside mansion here.

After putting his name on the map, Alan Jackson decided to put his money to good use. He built a massive mansion that sits on a 135 acres lot named Sweetbriar Estate. Jackson designed the sprawling estate for him and his three daughters after the large home in the movie Gone With the Wind and the plantation-style houses he grew up around in Georgia.

The country legend needed to downsize after his children had grown up, so Alan Jackson sold the beautiful property for a cool $28 million in 2010.

The mansion’s highlight reel is nothing to skip over. The features are endless, and it’s more like a paradise than a residence. Honestly, we are not sure why Jackson ever left.

Alan Jackson’s Humble Amenities

The white-columned mansion is nothing short of breathtaking as you enter the property. With a fountain enclosed with a circle driveway, large windows, and lush greenery, you would think you stumbled upon the Ritz Carlton.

Some amenities that the home features include a home theatre, a custom made pub, an indoor basketball court with barn doors for the summer, a guest house or two, a stable, and a boast house, just to name a few.

The living room boasted 22-foot ceilings to make you feel even smaller in the massive mansion, with a stone fireplace that reached up the wall. Windows also surround you with beautiful natural light.

Outside has a spacious porch with fire pits overlooking the sprawling acres and lake nearby. It’s like the White House of the south.

Alan Jackson must have needed to get away from all the women in his life every now and then. His man cave is an outdoorsman and car lover’s dream. There are fish on the wall and classic cars littered around the space with neon lights to really set the mood.

The Sweetbriar Estate also has a large fireplace outback for more areas of entertainment. The wooden rocking chairs and oversized picnic tables sit beneath string lights and sit lakeside—the perfect spot.

As we said, we are not sure why anyone would ever leave. If we had an extra $28 million just sitting around, we would happily take the mansion off Alan Jackson’s hands. He could come in for a drink first, though.
