Jimmy Fallon’s Home: A $5.7 Million Farmhouse for the Man Who Slow-Jams with the President:Jimmy Fallon was what one might call a “computer geek” in college. He majored in Computer Science, but then switched to Communications at the last minute, and ultimately dropped out. He had always been a “Saturday Night Live” fan, and post-college, he set out on the stand-up comedy circuit, ending up in Los Angeles, where he continued to perform. He began appearing in small roles on film,while studying with the famed improv troupe, The Groundlings. In 1988, he was invited to audition for “Saturday Night Live”, and he joined the program for the 1998-1999 season. He went on to become a popular member of the cast, and remained with the show until 2004. After attempting a moderately successful film career, he returned to television, hosting “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon”. His talk show has become a favorite spot for celebrities, artists, and politicians looking to reach a “hipper” audience, and it has also become a showcase for Mr. Fallon’s musical talent. Most recently, he made headlines when he, The Roots, and President Barack Obama, “slow-jammed” the news. It was a clear sign that he has come a long way from his days of watching “Saturday Night Live” at home with his family. Another indication of his increasing fame is the amount of property he now owns, including a $1.35 million co-op in Manhattan, and his recently purchased farmhouse in the Hamptons. His new 3,500 square foot home cost $5.7 million and sits on 2.2 acres of land. Comprised of six bedrooms, five full bathrooms, and two half-baths, an apple orchard, two barns, and two extra guest cottages, the 1850’s farmhouse is a definite change from his two-bedroom co-op in the city. The property also includes a heated pool, high ceilings, lots of light, easy access to the ocean less than a mile away, multiple fireplaces, a deck, a massive kitchen, and ample lawn space. As his guests get more and more high profile, it only stands to reason that Mr. Fallon’s taste would increase as well.

Kenny Chesney 11,143 square feet Tennessee Home:Country music superstar Kenny Chesney purchased of a 30-acre estate mansion in the Grassland area of Nashville in Franklin with a 14-room mansion that measures a ten-gallon hat sized 11,143 square feet and includes 5 bedrooms, 7 full poopers and two more half-poopers.The recently completed property was dubbed Bella Luce by its developers. A few clicks on the keyboard of our trusty laptop computer reveals Bella Luce is I-talian for, "beautiful light," which means the light up there on that hilltop where the house sits must be awful purdy. The unapologetically lavish property has received heaps and piles of attention in the last several months, both online where it was Luxist's Estate of the Day in early September 2009 and because of an exhibit/sale/event€“also in September of 2009€“of 23 "posthumously cast original bronze sculptures" by Rodin as well as works by a number of other artists. Previous reports on the sale of the property reveal it was purchased for $9,200,000, which happens to be the exact same figure provided to Your Mama by Frannie Franklin who also told us, the children may be amused to know, that in addition to the nine and some million smackers part of Mister Chesney's big real estate deal included transferring the deed to his current Franklin, TN estate over to the seller. We can't confirm that bit o' deed bizness children, but we've got several reasons to believe Frannie Franklin and no reason to doubt her. According to listing information and previous reports, the tile-roofed Tuscan style villa was designed by local architect Brad Norris and was built with 150-year old brick and sculpted stone, reclaimed walnut wood floors, Mesquite hand-carved doors, Sante Fe clay barrel tiles€“whatever those are, hand-crafted iron light fixtures, hand-painted tiles, very expensive and labor intensive Venetian plaster walls, and a Crestron home automation system, which means Mister Chesney can close the curtains in his bedroom and turn on a movie in the media room while he's finishing up dinner in the kitchen. The main rooms of Bella Luce include a leviathan living room/dining room combo with wood floors, a soaring ceiling with exposed Douglas Fir wood beams and trusses, a couple of custom Smart Car sized chandeliers, a wall of windows and French doors that open to the pool terrace, and two 25-foot high limestone fireplaces, one at each end of the room. Other main rooms include a den, billiard room, exercise room, and a colossal kitchen with double glazed cabinetry and not just one but three dishwashers. The kitchen is open to a family room area which has a wood beamed ceiling and a fireplace. Each of the 5 bedrooms includes a private pooper and private porch or balcony. The master suite, according to listing information and previous reports, includes a gigantic boo-dwar with high beamed ceilings, sitting room, private portico, custom coffee bar, a plasma tee-vee that retracts into the ceiling (or the floor or the wall or wherever), dual custom fitted dressing rooms and two palatial marble and tile poopers that include such dee-luxe amenities as a 10-head shower with steam, music and programmable water temperatures. What a single man like Mister Chesney needs with two studio apartment sized poopers in his bedroom is beyond Your Mama's booze compromised capability of comprehension. Some of the additional celebrity style amenities include a driveway nearly a mile long, an elevator that services all 4 floors€“or five depending on where you read, three wood, Travertine, tile and wrought iron spiral staircases, a home theater with stadium seating, a sewing/gift wrapping room, a lookout tower, an infinity edged swimming pool and spa, over 3,000 square feet of covered terraces and walkways, several outdoor entertaining areas including an outdoor catering kitchen, private pond and dock, a 6-car garage equipped with heat and air-conditioning and, according to Frannie Franklin, a helipad, which ought to spare Mister Chesney any inconvenient commutes into downtown Nashville. As far as we know from previous reports and from Frannie Franklin, Mister Chesney has shacked up in a 7,242 square foot house on 48.77 acres with 9 terlits on rural Peytonsville Road in Franklin, TN since records show he purchased it in September of 2003 for $2,500,000. According to Frannie Franklin and confirmed with property records, this property, which Mister Chesney allegedly traded as part of his purchase of Bella Luce, now belongs to the developer of Mister Chesney's new mansion. In addition to his Nashville spread, Mister Chesney has long owned homes on the U.S. Virgin Island of St. John. In early 2008, Mister Chesney listed one of his properties, called Stoneridge House, for $14,000,000. Previous reports reveal the 10,657 square foot mansion on 1.7 acres includes 7 bedrooms, 7.5 poopers, swimming pool, spa, nearly ten thousand square feet of decking and unobstructed views of Caneel Bay and the island's north shore. The current status of the property is unclear to Your Mama. Anyone? Bueller? Bueller? The children may recall that Mister Chesney also owned a house in Malee-boo, CA for a about hot minute after buying a 3,723 square foot ocean view Mediterranean on Carbon Mesa Road in February of 2008 for $7,400,000 that he turned around lickety-split, re-listed at $7,950,000, and sold€“bless his lucky heart€“way over the asking price and at a million dollar plus profit in November of 2008 for $8,500,000. The Malee-boo Mediterranean wasn't the first time Mister Chesney bought a multi-million dollar house and came down with an almost instantaneous case of the Real Estate Fickle. In January of 2009 the country crooner bought the historic W. Hunt Harris House in Old Town Key West, FL for $5,700,000 and before the ink on the deed was even dry, he flipped the 5 bedroom and 7.5 pooper property back on the market with an asking price of $6,495,000. Mister Chesney has not been so lucky real estate-wise down in Key West as he was in Malibu because the pretty and pristine property remains for sale with an asking price of $5,700,000.
