Billionaire Tommy Frist Jr. Offering Nashville Compound for Reduced $40M

Belle Meade, The Nashville estate of HCA Healthcare co-founder Tommy Frist, Jr. is back up for sale this spring. Frist initially listed the bucolic property at $50 million about a year ago; a recent price snip drops the ask down to $40 million.

The house dates to 2001, but its spirit is rooted in a particularly staunch order of traditionalism. Its façade is dominated by a roof extension portico that derives from Greek revival architecture; it has a sibling in back, where it shelters a terrace that surveys the green gradient of the backyard, a groomed progression opening into a breathtakingly open and fertile landscape. The effect is enhanced by a ha-ha or two.

The home’s interiors are sophisticated and varied. The great room features a cathedral ceiling that recalls post and beam designs; other highlights include the tea room, where lattice, a recessed arched window and French doors leading to the loggia coalesce into a refinement that’s disarming in its subtlety, and the kitchen, a textbook case of French country house style.

The grounds measure in at about fifty acres. A pool, pool house, and tennis court paired with a gazebo sporting a copper mansard roof provide extraneous fair weather fundamentals.
