It’s the most expensive listing Tennessee has ever seen, and it just hit the market.
The Nashville mansion owned by billionaire businessman Tom Frist Jr., who founded HCA Healthcare, is up for sale for $50 million.
Located in the Belle Meade neighborhood, one of Nashville’s most expensive neighborhoods, the property is quintessential southern estate and sits on 59 acres of land. Listing agent Steve Fridrich of Fridrich & Clark Realty says it’s Belle Meade’s largest lot.
“Most of the other homes are on an acre or less,” he said. “It really stands out for the size. It’s half a mile from the main house to the road.
Renowned New York architects Ferguson & Shamamian, who have won numerous awards for their high-end residential projects, designed the large property, which was built in 2021.
It commands a striking presence and bears many references to the region. Examples include exterior columns and front and rear double balcony porches.
In fact, Ferguson & Shamamian featured the mansion in their book “City and Country Residences.”
Part of the description reads: “Centered on colonnaded front and rear porches, the house can have an impressive presence and body language appears to be formal. But the house that is sized for the entertaining and steeped in regional references offers a surprisingly comfortable, even relaxed environmental reality inside.
Spanning 19,811 square feet, the estate has five bedrooms, six full bathrooms, and four half baths.
Renowned New York designer Bunny Williams is the originator of traditional interiors.
In typical southern style, there are plenty of entertaining spaces, both indoors and out, formal and informal. These include a screened gallery, a covered gallery with fireplace, a large living room and a family room, which has vaulted wooden ceilings and two fireplaces.
Other notable features include an elevator, swimming pool, tennis court and a charming guest house.
Fridrich says Dr. Frist is selling his beloved mansion because his wife died last year and he wants to move to a smaller house.
“The Frists have a large family with many grandchildren and have years of fond memories spent with them here,” Fridrich said. “Now new owners have the opportunity to create their own legacy.”
