PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. - A South Florida home once belonging to the late country music star Tammy Wynette is for sale.

Originally built in 1972, the six-bedroom, six-and-a-half-bathroom oceanfront property is located at 241 Ocean Drive in Jupiter Inlet Colony on the northern edge of Palm Beach County.

Wynette owned the home from 1976 to 1981, when she sold it for $625,000. The property is now listed for $7 million.

Platinum Properties CEO and broker Jim Kirvin, who is the listing agent, said the house has been extensively renovated since Wynette owned the property, but it still maintains its unique floorplan.

Kirvin said prospective buyers are more enamored by the sprawling 6,400-square-foot property than they are by its previous tenant.

"I think it's more of a curiosity," Kirvin told Local10.com. "I don't think somebody's going to buy it just because it was Tammy Wynette's house."

The courtyard house is nestled away in a small municipality on the southern tip of Jupiter Island, which is a familiar retreat for celebrities.

"Kid Rock lives down the street," Kirvin said, noting that other former residents include singers Olivia Newton-John and Perry Como.

Kirvin said every room in the house except for the master bedroom can only be accessed from the outside.

"So it's very much like a house that is down at the Caribbean," he said.

Kirvin said the spacious estate has had plenty of interest, but, as of yet, no offers.

"Homes at that price point don't sell quickly," he said.

Wynette moved to South Florida shortly after divorcing fellow County Music Hall of Fame inductee George Jones in 1975. The "Stand by Your Man" singer died in Nashville in 1998.
