Christian personal finance guru Dave Ramsey just listed his mountain mansion near Nashville for $15.45 million.
The six-bedroom mountain view estate commands 14.38 fenced-in acres with vacant lots on all sides, according to the Redfin property listing. Ramsey is selling the home with 14,000 square feet of living space, fully furnished.
The home’s luxury features include three staircases, five fireplaces, an elevator, its own private water source, and an advanced air filtration system. The property has nine bathrooms, including one with a reported 18 shower heads.
The outside of the house is as palatial as the inside, with 6,000 square feet of covered outdoor space. Its features include patios, porches, and terraces. Its driveway encircles a fountain and connects to three garages with space for eight cars. For entertainment, it has an infinity-edge pool and spa, as well as several other entertaining spaces. The house is strategically placed so its residents can watch the sunset from the pool in the back.
Brentwood-based Capital Realty Group, led by Ramsey’s son-in-law Winston Cruze, has the listing, according to the Nashville Business Journal.

Ramsey Solutions spokeswoman Megan McConnell told the Business Journal that Ramsey and his wife Sharon plan to build on land they own south of the city.
The Ramseys paid nearly $1.6 million in cash for the property in 2008, Realtor.com reported, following the debt-avoidance philosophy of Ramsey-owned financial counseling firm Ramsey Solutions and Financial Peace University.
Ramsey Solutions, one of the largest employers in Williamson County, Tennessee, employs over 800 people. Dave Ramsey hosts the third-largest radio talk show in America, The Ramsey Show, heard by more than 14 million listeners each week on more than 600 radio stations.
Lately, Ramsey has been the focus of controversy for allegedly bullying employees, exerting a “cultlike” control over them, and flagrantly violating COVID-19 precautions.
Ramsey also made controversial comments on-air about stimulus checks. If $600 or $1,400 changes someone’s life, they are “screwed already,” Ramsey said to Fox News.
