Dolly Parton’s former south Nashville house has been put up for sale for over $1million with the potential to become a museum or wedding venue.

The ‘9 to 5’ singer’s former property at 3146 Glencliff Road has been listed at $1.1million despite being sold in 1997 – a year after Parton moved out – for $140,000.

The four-bedroom property, built in 1941, includes a guest house, 2.4 acres of woodland, a walk-in wardrobe and has much of the same themes as when Parton, 73, lived in it such as a shed built for the star’s nieces and nephews.

The second floor is ‘identical’ to how it was during Parton’s 16 years there, but the current homeowner has developed the main bathroom, kitchen and added a 1,500 square foot guest house which was said to be perfect for a wedding venue. 

It also features a carport, which can house four vehicles, as well as a drive that can fit about eight tour buses.

Legendary country singer Parton is believed to have lived in the house from 1980 to 1996 with her husband Carl Dean.

There is reportedly a stain-glassed window in the house with butterflies on it and the message: ‘Dolly, Happy 44th Birthday!’

The house has been on and off the market since 2010 but has failed to sell each time.

In 2010, it had an asking price of $379,900 which was lowered to $359,900 and $324,900 within seven months.

But it was put back on the market for $949,000 in June 2016 and was re-listed for $1.2million a year later.

It slumped back down from this peak to an asking price of $875,000 last February, and was estimated at $439,400 this year.

During her time in the house, Parton released the hit singles Why’d You Come In Here Lookin’ Like That and Yellow Roses.

She was also in the film version of 9 to 5 in 1980, and she starred in The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas in 1982.    

Stephen Shutts from Rockology LLC, which handling the sale of the house, told the Tennessean: ‘The owners feel like it’s time to let go, they’ve had it for quite a long time.

‘The upstairs is identical to when Dolly was there. There’s a little bar that Dolly used when she was there that remains the same.’

He added: ‘Someone could put up a couple of homes on the back lot If they wanted to expand the guest house for weddings, that could be done.’
