Carrie Underwood Selling Home Where She Had 'Freak Accident' that Resulted in Over 40 Stitches
The country singer says she tripped and fell on the exterior steps of the home while walking her dogs
Carrie Underwood is letting go of the home where she suffered a fall that resulted in her receiving over 40 stitches in her face, a source confirms to PEOPLE.
“That’s where she fell,” the Nashville source says of Underwood’s Brentwood, Tennessee, estate that is now listed for $1.45 million with Torry Hudson of Southern Life Real Estate.
“They are completely done with the neighborhood. The decision came after her fall,” the insider said, adding that security issues also contributed to the couple’s decision to house hunt.
“They’ve been having a lot of issues with neighbors letting people in the community to look around and it all escalated after the fall,” the source explains.
After Underwood and Fisher wed in 2010, they purchased 400 acres of land in Franklin — a neighborhood located about 30 minutes away from Nashville’s city center — where they built a custom estate, according to multiple reports.
Situated on the first hole of a golf course about 20 minutes away from downtown Nashville, the four-bedroom Italian-style villa they’re saying goodbye to features a covered back porch with rocking chairs, a sprawling open-concept kitchen, a massive master suite with a walk-through shower and en suite bathroom, as well as wet bars in the den, bonus area and home gym.
The Nashville source tells PEOPLE that the couple, who welcomed their second son, Jacob Bryan, on Jan. 23, are not currently living in the home that is listed for sale.
“They’re fully moved into their new place and are finally putting this one on the market,” the source says.
“Plain and simple, it was just kind of a freak accident,” Underwood told Today‘s Hoda Kotb in an interview. “I just fell. I just tripped taking my dogs out to do their business. It could happen to anybody.”
Adding, “I say if I would have fallen anywhere else, it wouldn’t have been a problem. There was one little step that I went to catch myself on and I missed.”
