Here is a chance to live in “My Tennessee Mountain Home”.


A home in the verdant farmlands of Sevierville, TN that once belonged to the country superstar Dolly Partonalong with her parents before her, became available for $3.5 million.

Dolly Parton’s former home is over a century old.


Location of the event

Parton’s parents, Lee and Avie Lee Parton, purchased the 1,548-square-foot home in 1984. The three-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom home was built in 1917 and encompasses 62 acres. Parton took possession after the death of his parents in 2003, and the house was later sold to a family friend.

Known as Red Top, the property currently serves as an event venue.

In a nod to Parton’s long history of philanthropy and their own desire to support the local community, the owners earlier this year offered the event venue free of charge to the bride and groom who were displaced by the wildfires. that raged near Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Ideal place

The space includes a large dining room, porches and outbuildings such as a barn with a toilet. The lawns are expansive lawns and visitors are treated to views of the beautiful countryside.

Parton’s presence is still present here in the decor and objects of the house.
