Olympic figure skater and broadcaster Scott Hamilton is selling his elegant country estate in Franklin, TN, for $3.1 million.
Built in 2010, the stately 10,000-square-foot home has six bedrooms, five bathrooms, and four half-baths, and comes with more than 7 wooded acres, including a private pond.
Located in a gated community just south of Nashville, the area is the perfect spot for walks, horse and bike rides, and long, lazy days spent enjoying time with friends and family.
Entertainment options abound at the mansion. There’s a private theater, game room, and saltwater pool—all designed with fun in mind. Other notable features include a five-car garage, courtyard, smart home system, and elevator.

In addition to having a championship skating career, topped by winning a gold medal in the 1984 Olympics, Hamilton is an outspoken cancer survivor and longtime ice skating commentator for NBC’s Olympics coverage. Hamilton’s famous grit is best summed up by his most well-known quote, "The only disability in life is a bad attitude."
Hamilton has lent his name and celebrity to several cancer charities, including his own, the Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation. He also owns the Scott Hamilton Skating Academy at Ford Ice Center in Antioch, TN.
Which all means that though the Hamilton family, including wife Tracie and their four children, are parting with this incredible home, they’re likely to maintain roots in the area near the skate school.
It’s a world-class property owned by a world-class athlete, and now it’s ready for new owners to come in and make memories of their very own. For the medal-winning buyer, Hamilton might even throw in a little ice time with the deal.
