Whether or not you’re a captain of industry, few pleasures in life are as uncomplicated as clicking through impossibly luxe (and ridiculously expensive) real estate listings.
This week, we’re dusting off our ten gallon hat for a look-see at the fabulous Nashville farm belonging to country’s first couple, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill.
Are those crescent rolls we smell? This massive, 32,000 square foot mansion on Lake Minnetonka—which features a private beach cottage—was once the summer retreat for the Pillsbury family. Not bad, doughboy. Not bad at all.
Which listings have you drooling this week? Tell us in the comments below!
