Taylor Swifts historic Nashville mansion


American country singer Taylor Swift paid $2,5 million for this wonderful historic Southern Belle. A bargain, insult almost, compared to the prices in the greater Los Angeles area! The home, known as Northumberland Estate  was built in the 1930s for  Guilford Dudley, Jr, who was an ambassador for the USA in Denmark. The house is a perfect example of 20th-century Southern architecture. It used to sit on hundreds of acres but the land has been subdivided since.

The sellers are Universal Music Group chairman Luke Lewis and his wife, Lauren. The couple hired renowned architect Manuel Zeitlin when they bought the home to turn it into their dream home. They sure managed to maintain its historic integrity. I truly hope Taylor Swift has the same eye for historic value and will treat this wonderful home with the respect it deserves.

The lounge. The black (or is it dark blue?) walls are a magnificent touch. I love how it gives it a very classical and dramatic feel.

Now there's a library! Love the chairs!
