Price: $20 million
The Skinny: The country star Kenny Rogers lived on this 973-acre property until 2003 and had a hand in just about every facet of its design. From the 18-hole championship golf course modeled after PGA tour stops to the 12,000-square-foot main house, Rogers designed every inch of his domain.
The sprawling plantation seems to have enough amenities and space to qualify as a private resort, with a 90,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art equestrian facility, two barns, two swimming pools, clay tennis courts, a spa, a conference center, three fish-stocked lakes, and a lake house.
Plus, to house all the guests who would flock to such an entertaining paradise, there is a six-bedroom guest house, a four-bedroom guest house, and four one-bedroom villas. Of course, a country estate of this caliber costs big money: $20 million.
