The listing describes this adorable 1886 home in Nashville as "fully renovated historic Timothy Demonbreun house," but nothing out there links it to Demonbreun, the French-Canadian fur trader and Revolutionary War spy who later became the Lieutenant-Governor of the Illinois Territory. What the framed gold and silver records, assorted instruments, and various sound-amplifying devices in the living room point to is a different kind of American hero; the rock-and-roller with a cute purple house. The sleuths over at Estately have done some digging, and found that a company associated with the address, "Pucker Productions," also has ties to the Matthew and Gunnar Nelson, the golden-haired twins of the band Nelson, whose debut album After the Rain went multi-platinum in 1990, and featured the No. 1 hit "(Can't Live Without Your) Love and Affection." Whichever Nelson brother the place (probably) belongs to looks to have bought it in 2003 for $215K, and has cut the price down from the $924K it listed for back in march to $899K. Check out the stained glass windows, "custom millwork," "original floors,"and the second-floor gym, this way.
