Having abandoned Vanderbilt and the Southeastern Conference for Penn State and the Big 10 earlier this month, former Commodores’ head football coach James Franklin won’t be needing his home in Nashville anymore.
Now that Franklin will call the State College, Pa. area home – at least until the school’s politics or the rabid fans drive him out — he’s ditching his large, dull home in the Green Hills neighborhood of Nashville for $1.325 million, a slight bump from the $1.162 million he paid in 2011.
Franklin’s McMansion-y Tennessee home has an open floor plan, gourmet kitchen and a private terrace. It would fit in perfectly at any Toll Brothers development near Franklin’s Bucks County, Pa. roots.
Franklin’s old Nashville digs are also just a few minutes away from Vanderbilt Stadium, whose seating capacity is roughly the size of Penn State’s Beaver Stadium…in 1969.
Highlights of James Franklin’s Nashville House:
• 5 bedrooms, 3 baths and 2 half-baths
• 4.3 miles to Deja Vu Nashville gentlemen’s club
• 0.7 miles to Whole Foods
