Completed in 2009 by Norris Architecture, this sprawling Tuscan-style villa with rustic elements sits high on a hill enveloped by 30 wooded acres with views of the Williamson County countryside. Variety reported in January 2010 that American country music superstar Kenny Chesney purchased the sprawling mansion for $9.25 million with an adjoining seven acre property for an additional $755,000. The 11,143 square foot villa, called Belle Luce, was constructed with hand-sculpted limestone, 150-year-old vintage brick and Santa Fe clay tiles, reclaimed walnut floors, limestone fireplaces and three travertine, mahogany and hand-forged iron staircases. The residence also includes cedar and douglas fir beams, marble countertops, a home theatre, six-car garage, swimming pool and nearly 6,000 square feet of covered outdoor living space. Additional features include 5 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, an elevator, two 25-foot high limestone fireplaces, a private pond and helipad. A lookout tower with 360-degree panoramic views overlooks the property and beyond. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Kenny Chesney has a net worth of $190 million.
