the speculation has been circling since last fall that johnny depp was interested in property here in music city. although the reasons why are still unclear, word online today (thanks to the real estalker) is that he purchased a 19,042 square foot mansion in the burbs which was listed at a cool $17.5 million. the gated 48-acre estate with a seven car garage and heated pool is actually the second big real estate transaction for depp this fall. in september, he purchased a $4.4 million la mansion for his ex and two children.
johnny depp was born in owensboro, kentucky just two hours north of nashville and made his film debut in a nightmare on elm street in 1984. he has since gone on to be in such blockbusters as edward scissorhands in the 90s and most recently in the pirates of the caribbean.
nothing was confirmed in the tax records and the house is technically still shown as active on the market but if the reports are true, he’s another one in a long line who have discovered the allure and charm of our little city.
