Remember that massive, 17-room, 10,264-square foot, 147-acre, larger-than-life horse farm that Sheryl Crow was attempting to sell last year? At first the singer put it on the market in March ’10 for $7.5M, but after a lack of offers, decided that an online auction was the best way to go. Unfortunately, that didn’t work either – with the reserve nowhere close to being met – so down came the listing, leaving the world to wonder what the 49-year-old would do next.

Fast-forward to May 2011 and Crow’s property was once again put up for sale – but with a twist! The main house and 14-stall barn were listed with 51 acres for $4.5M, while the remaining 96 acres and a guest house went up for a separate $2M. Can you guess what the result of that clever division was? Yet again, nothing – and according to Zillow, Crow’s real estate firm removed the listing on August 12th.

But don’t feel too bad for Sheryl – she just purchased another home just over 30 miles away from this one on 50-acres for $5.2M. Was it really that hard living down on the farm?
