According to the Los Angeles Times, MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine has listed his home outside Nashville, Tennessee for $2.498 million.
The 11-acre " equestrian estate" in Franklin includes a nearly 6,842-square-foot home built in 2003. It has fenced pastures and a riding trail that border the home, four stalls, a barn and a large shed with an equipment area. There are three bedrooms, an office/recording studio, gym and library. An elevator navigates the two-story floor plan.
Mustaine purchased the home five years ago for $1.8 million, according to public records.
Dave and his family moved to Nashville in October 2014 after living in Fallbrook, California for a couple of years.
This past May, Mustaine sold his Fallbrook estate for $2,000,000. He initially put the house on the market in October 2015 for $5.375 million — more than five times what he paid for it three years earlier.
Dave told MetalIreland.com about his move to Nashville: "I've lived there four times before, because we did records there. So I've lived there for several months at a time… I want [my daughter] Electra to pursue her [country music] dreams. I can do my job anywhere, really… It's good for me, because my daughter is happy, and I think, if you love your children, you'll always want to protect and provide for them. And, like I said, I can pretty much do my job anywhere."
Last year, Mustaine told Franklin Lifestyle that he felt comfortable in Tennessee.
"It's a phenomenon to me," he said. "It's a very self-sacrificing area for someone like me who comes from a place where it's usually every man for himself. Franklin is my home. I love Nashville, but I love Franklin even more."
This past June, Mustaine revealed that he was diagnosed with throat cancer, forcing the cancelation of most of MEGADETH's tour dates for 2019.
MEGADETH is scheduled to support FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH on a European tour in January and February 2020.
