Buy the Home Where Johnny Cash Spent His Very Last Days

New, 1 comment

While not officially on the market, the Hendersonville, Tenn., home where Johnny Cash lived out his life is quietly available for sale. According to Zillow Blog, the house, built by architect Braxton Dickson, was last listed for $595K and is ripely available to interested buyers. The four-bedroom is located directly across the street from the lake house that's eternalized in the song "House on the Lake," written by Cash's eldest daughter, Rosanne (who, just last year, was petitioning the National Trust For Historic Preservation to save her dad's boyhood home in Arkansas). June and Johnny lived in the lake house, their true spiritual center, for nearly their entire 35-year marriage, but eventually Johnny moved when the lake house proved too difficult to maneuver with a wheelchair. The 3,100-square-foot ranch he retired to was at one point inhabited by his mom. Ready for the next owner: priceless memorabilia, including the Gold Record for “I Walk The Line.”
