Barry Gibb of the 1970s pop group the Bee Gees and his wife, Linda, have sold the Hendersonville property June Carter and Johnny Cash called home for over 40 years.
Lakehouse Holdings, a Tennessee limited liability company, purchased the property at 200 Caudill Drive for $2 million, according to a warranty deed filed March 18 with the Sumner County Register of Deeds office.
Rachelle Caudill of Realty Title & Escrow Company in Hendersonville confirmed the sale to a reporter Tuesday, but declined to disclose further information citing privacy laws.
The property consists of four lots along Old Hickory Lake, and is the same property conveyed to Caudill 200, a Florida limited liability company, by deed from Robert Sullivan and Catherine Sullivan, co-trustees of the John R. Cash Revocable Trust on Dec. 30, 2005.
Robert Sullivan announced in a press release in January 2006 that the Gibbs purchased the home and planned to write songs in the house. The couple paid $2.3 million for the seven-bedroom home built in 1968.
The couple's plans to renovate and restore the home to its original grandeur were almost complete in April 2007 when a spark from a preservative caught fire and destroyed the mostly wooden structure. Shortly after the blaze, the Gibbs announced plans to build a new house and preserve the original foundations of the home next-door neighbor Marty Stuart once called the Graceland of country music.
Both John and June Carter Cash died in 2003.
