Sheryl Crow auctioning off her home online

If you’ve got the dough to bid on Sheryl Crow’s 10,264 square feet College Grove, Tennessee, home, there’s only a few hours left to name your price.

The singer is selling her home, dubbed Cross Creek Farm, via an online auction that also features numerous photos and videos of Crow’s five bedroom, seven and a half bath house, which is set on a 150 acre estate.

The property, which is “a fully functional ‘Solar Farm,’” according to the website, also features a six-car garage, a 14 stall barn, indoor riding arena, private nanny quarters and a three bedroom, two bath guest house.

The current bid is close to $1.2 million, and the auction will close at 6 p.m. CST today.

    So far that comes to 7833.33 an acre, not including the house, barn, etc. We have farm ground selling for approx. 7,000 an acre where I live and that is just the house, barn, etc. I don't think she will sell at that price and if it does...take it and run.

    My uncle owns a 8000 acre farm and let me tell u he is FAR from poor. I own a 85 acre from and are far from poor. Granted farming is hard work and farmers normally don't make what they desevre but most farmers its not all about the money. Its something you grew up doing and its something you love. To that person who said farmers are poor I would like to know what you do? So don't talk about things u obviously know nothing about

    I'm just wondering what on earth the real estate agents are doing for a 10% commission!!! I don't see them in any of the photographs or videos. I can't imagine that they provided the background music...they certainly aren't taking us a personal tour of the home or the grounds...and I really don't remember any refreshments!

    There is an estate in Ashe Co., NC that is on top of a mountain that the asking price is over $9 mil that has a view to die for and it has over 400 acres...the main house it is right on top of the mtn and it has a 360 degree view, I think you can also see Alaska from there or maybe even Russia. Sheryl's home is worth at least 20 mil or more and the estate in Ashe is worth lots more than 9 mil. Goes to show money is not eveything to some people.

    Why must people misplace the word "FARM". This property is NOT a farm. A "FARM" does not have an in ground pool, nanny quarters, 4 car garage, recording studio, 10,000 sq/ft. A "FARM" is where hard working people work from before the sun comes up till after it goes down for barely enough money to pay the bills. Sorry to tell everyone, but this is NOT a FARM because it has a few horses.

    • Jean

      Where do you get your ideas. All farms are not poor, where you work from sun up till sun down and have no money. A farm can have a swimming pool, and a guest house. Although this is a bit like a ranch for horses. Could also be call a "gentleman Farm". This one is in a gated community and sure it doesn't compare to a real farm where there are hundreds or thousands of acres. Farms grow crops and ranches out here in western SD raise cows, horses and sheep. Don't label everyone by what you think you know.

    In case most of you didn't notice, there was a "reserve" which wasn't met. Therefore, the home will NOT be sold for $1.2 mil. You'll notice this often if you watch 'eBay' auctions. Until the minimum is met, they don't have to sell when there's a 'reserve'.

    • .

      That's what got us into the mess to begin with - banks allowed people to think they could afford houses that they really couldn't afford, and they set them up wtih variable interest rates. As property taxes continued to increase (regardless of the actual value of the homes in a given area), and once the monthly payments shot up with the changing interest rates, people lost their homes. If a celebrity gave away a home, the recipient would HAVE to immediately sell it and buy something they could afford. The initial tax would be pretty hefty (somewhere around 50% of the home's value), then add property tax and maintenance and utilities on top of that. Unless that person was able to sell the house right away, this would not be a good thing for a celebrity to do to someone.

    I agree if it goes for 1.2 mil that is an incredible deal. Also in response to Chris' comment... the south is not as racists as it has been made out to be. I'm from Virginia and it seems like 50% or more of the population in middle Tennessee has moved here from all over the U.S. Nisan moved its North American Headquarters to Franklin TN just a short drive from College Grove. The south is much more integrated and progressive than we get credit for.

Ignore people who say the South is racist. There are plenty of "silent" racists in the North, too. What people lose sight of is that we're all Americans, and we need to start taking better care of one another because there are too many nations just drooling out there- hoping we'll fail.

    As an expert on real estate and law I would have to elaborate on the auction by advising my clients that this is a deal that needs to be legally addressed. If it is not a FHA loan then I would suspect that the financing will be difficult to obtain in this market given the superior condition. So in effect you are 100 percent correct in your position.

      Nashville is actually home to more accessible live music than any city in the country. It also boasts the Frist Center for the Visual Arts which plays home to exclusive exhibits that the Louvre wouldn't dare let be shown anywhere else in the US. As far as theatre goes, we have tons of aggressive young theatre troupes and excellent shows at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center and Jackson Hall. I would go on about the beautiful Schermerhorn Symphony Center, but its brand new multi-million dollar pipe organ was damaged in the flood along with all of the underground portions of the venue. Nashville is a beautiful cultured city, and that's how it got its name as the Athens of the South. Oh, yeah, speaking of culture, we also have the only scale replica of the Parthenon along with the tallest indoor statue in North America, which is also adorned in gold...should we get into scholastic matters, or do you get my point?

      You can live in a city with culture and not pay a million dollars for a 2 bedroom POS condo. It's up to the people who live there. If they are stupid enough to pay those prices, they essentially set the standards for everyone else to deal with. I'd gladly give up living next door to a culture-inducing broadway play to be able to pay a reasonable price for a home. You can drive in to soak up "culture," but your home is one of the biggest life investments you'll make.
