Country singer-songwriter Sara Evans, who lives with husband Jay Barker and their kids in Mountain Brook, Alabama, gave HGTV a tour of their family home last year. Now she’s selling it, so let’s take a look…
Here’s a screenshot of Sara on her front porch while HGTV was filming there:
The house sits on a double lot and is bigger than it looks from the outside at 3,500 sq ft.
Anyone remember when she was on an episode of HGTV Design Star? The contestants went to her house to ask about her decorating style and she told them “Shabby Chic” and “Southern Elegance.” (You can revisit my recap of that episode from 2008 here.)
She seems like a really down-to-earth and fun person who is devoted to her family.
She talked about her daughters’ bedroom on her blog A Real Fine Place:
“All three of our girls share a bedroom. It is a big room by normal standards, but with three girls it can get crowded really quickly. We have a beautiful king bed that all three girls share, (sweet huh?) and also a built-in double bed that is off the floor with a big play space underneath. Actually, it’s a storage place for our youngest girl to put her massive collection of stuffed animals (‘stuffies’).”
They moved into this house after their 2008 wedding with seven kids between them, and People magazine reported: “With just four bedrooms, they knew the house would be a tight squeeze, but Evans didn’t consider that a drawback. ‘The point was to bring the families together, and it’s a lot easier to do that in a smaller house,’ the singer says.”
Check out the message left on the blackboard-painted walls in the playroom — cute:
In an interview she gave about her new album, she says, “My life is Hannah Montana,” referring to the former Disney Channel sitcom about a singer who leads a double life as a glamorous star one day and a normal kid the next, “because I have the best of both worlds.”
Sara gave HGTV a tour of her home last fall. I totally missed it, but she posted a behind-the-scenes video that shows outtakes from their day of shooting. In it, she laughs and says, “This room is all about me. Me, me, me!” And plays the drums for the cameras:
