Located next to the Tennessee Governor's Mansion in Nashville, this former residence of country comedienne Minnie Pearl features a swimming pool and Pool House, beautiful gardens and a Guest Cottage. The current owners finished renovations in 2000 and the home now encompasses over 10,000 square feet of construction in the main house (with 7,700 square feet of heated and cooled space). The 5 acre Oak Hill property offers the convenience of both Green Hills and Brentwood, but is a comfortable distance from major commercial corridors and thoroughfares. The neighborhoods privacy and lovely ambiance has drawn many past and current country musicians.

William Ridley Wills, Sr. built the house in 1935 for his daughter, Mamie Craig Clark and her husband, Ted. Mr. Wills, Sr. lived in the home next door, which is now the current Governor's Residence.

Sarah Ophelia Colley Cannon, known to country music fans as Minnie Pearl, and husband Henry lived at the home from 1969 until their deaths. Burt Reynolds, Jim Nabors, and Kay Star were among the many guests to the home.

The home was selected as the Junior League of Nashville's 15th Annual Decorators' Show House in 2000. Local decorators, designers and gardeners transformed the home, showcasing the latest in furnishings, interior design and garden planning. Amy Grant and Martha Sundquist were the Honorary Co-Chairs of the event, which raised more than $550,000.
