Honestly, I don’t know why anyone would find this odd. I mean, I suppose if I were Sheryl Crow and needed to unload a 17-room, 10,264-square feet mansion, then an online auction would be the best way to go about it… right?
Sure! And as such, Sheryl Crow has officially put her Nashville, Tennessee estate, Cross Creek Farm, up for an online auction. According to the rather elaborate website, the estate, which sits on 150 acres of land, is a fully functioning ‘Solar Farm’ that utilizes solar panels to reduce 40% of its electric costs. And if that isn’t cool enough, it also has a gated entry with security system, a six-car garage, nanny quarters, a three-bedroom, two-bath guest house, a 14-stall barn, indoor riding arena, a salt water pool, and a theater. So, essentially, there’s no reason to ever want again!
The 48-year-old crooner – who has adopted sons Wyatt, three, and Levi, seven months – originally listed the estate for $7.5 million, but after no one scooped it up decided to put it up for auction. She purchased the estate in 2006, while being treated for breast cancer and shortly after ending her three-year relationship with cyclist Lance Armstrong.
The bidding will end on the estate at 6pm CST tonight, and the highest bidder must pay cash with the deal being closed no later than January 14, 2011. Currently the bid is up to $1,175,000, so, if you want a piece of Crow and her solar friendly paradise, you better get on it!
