Following the storm of rumors that Oscar winner Nicole Kidman and her country star husband Keith Urban were set to settle on an over-the-top NYC mansion just last week, the duo has officially put one of their two Tennessee homes on the market. Per Variety, the pair has listed their rustic Franklin, Tennessee abode for $3.45 million—a modest price tag compared to the $39 million Upper East Side residence they were allegedly eyeing. And while the Aussie couple sadly didn't end up snagging the extravagant estate, their latest listing only serves as further proof that the duo is getting ready for a major move to Manhattan.
Situated on 36 acres of rolling hills and untouched woods in Franklin—a charming town just south of Nashville—the A-listers’ farmhouse retreat puts outdoor living first. With no shortage of acreage and room to move about outdoors—cue the private walking trails and volleyball court—we’re assuming an abundance of land was high on the couple’s checklist when they first purchased the property back in 2007 for $2.4 million.
Kidman and her hubby’s countryside spread encompasses the primary four-bedroom residence, a sweet guest cottage, and a barn. Proving itself as an idyllic rural retreat, the pair’s gated red brick oasis has all the makings of a celeb-worthy escape from the city. Just see for yourself.
A decidedly bright and sunny space for the Kidman-Urban crew to hang—and, of course, binge watch Big Little Lies—the home’s airy living room welcomes a flood of natural sunlight.
While the neutral space doesn’t bear the traditional markings of a chic farmhouse—like reclaimed wood shelves or shiplap walls—the room’s simple facade and modern fixtures will surely attract buyers in search of a move-in ready residence.
A galley-style kitchen sits adjacent to the light-filled family room. While still a warm and inviting spot to feast, the couple’s modest cookhouse features a rich array of grays, from the saturated cabinets to the speckled granite counters. A quaint breakfast nook nearby offers dreamy views of the home’s private gardens and surrounding foliage.
Several clean-lined guest rooms, a cozy den, and a bright office space also occupy the main floor. Oh, and did we forget to mention there’s also a fully-equipped gym on this level?
Around every corner, mammoth-sized windows call immediate attention to the property’s lush landscape.
Upstairs, an entire wing dedicated to the sprawling master suite awaits. Featuring a spacious sitting room, separate bedroom, enormous bathroom, and walk-in closet, Kidman and Urban’s countryside dwelling is (unsurprisingly) fit for the stars.
In the master bathroom, his and hers sides are divided by a large soaking tub that overlooks the backyard. With nearly 5,100 square feet to work with, we can’t blame the twosome for going all in on a colossal ensuite.
While Kidman and Urban own a number of homes across the country—including a palatial estate in Nashville—we can’t help but love this rural abode for placing nature at its core. We just hope the A-listers won’t miss their lush acres too much once they make their expected move up north.
