The 15 Million Dollar Belle Meade Villa That Will Make Your Jaw Drop
625 Westview Avenue
Nashville, TN 37205
The Tennessean just featured this $14.9 million dollar home for sale in Belle Meade. It's a photo gallery that quickly made the rounds on social media because its opulence is so astounding. In Beverly Hills, sure. But in Nashville? Seeing over-the-top luxury like this just seems especially notable.
We know what you really want to know: Who lives here now?
That would be Keith and Deborah Pitts. Keith Pitts is the vice chairman of Vanguard Health Systems. Mrs. Pitts meanwhile has dubbed herself "domestic diva and muse" on her LinkedIn account. Not a bad gig.
Here are the details on the mansion. According to home's online brochure (which is a must-see if you ask me), 625 Westview's architecture was inspired by Italian classicism. Its architect, Ron D. Farris of Farris Concepts in Architecture, says the mansion:
Yes. Our thoughts exactly.
"Demonstrates the application of Mediterranean style to a well-developed residential scheme. Meeting the pragmatic needs of a modern family and offering unique entertainment experiences, the residence embraces any family or social activity, from the groin vaulted loggia framing the entry garden to the western facade overlooking the terraced rear garden and pool, the design and craftmanship of this exquisite villa is unparalleled in Nashville, Tennessee."
Some other pertinent details:
The home, which sits on two acres, was built in 2008 by Hugh Smalley. Interior design is by Jerry Dawson Begley. There are eight bedroom suites, in addition to in-law quarters, a media room, a gym, a "keeping room," a wine cellar that holds 10,000 bottles, a four-car garage, and literally just about every single luxury you could imagine in life.
What do you think? Ready to move in? Or does this kind of square footage (16,050 to be exact) make you feel overwhelmed just thinking about it?
