A hidden piece of Elvis Presley history is up for grabs in Nashville.
The former home of Presley’s manager Colonel Tom Parker is currently on the market for $595,000. Presley would regularly spend the night in the home, located just outside of the Music City in Madison, Tenn., when he was in town to record new music during his illustrious career.
Until 1992, it was also the official headquarters of the Elvis Presley fan club, and was the home to Parker’s extensive collection of Elvis memorabilia. Some of the King’s famous bejeweled jumpsuits, personal photographs and thousands of fan letters were once stored in boxes in the house’s basement before they were moved to Graceland.
Current owner Steve North bought the house in 1996 to house his law practice, and has fond childhood memories of eyeing the property when Elvis was in town.
“I remember it as a teenager,” North told the New York Post. “We would drive by the house, and we would look to see if the pink Cadillac was there. If the pink Cadillac was there, we’d know Elvis was in town.”
Although the upstairs has been remodeled to keep with the times and fit North’s office needs, the downstairs bar and basement looks exactly the same as it does when Presley frequented the house.
Vintage wood paneling covers the entire space, which Elvis used to use as his place to relax between recording sessions.
Although some may find the decor a little dated, it’s an incredible piece of history that many Elvis lovers would love to call their own. If a buyer doesn’t come forward soon, it may be sold to developers and demolished.
“You could tear it down, build a modern office building and make more money,” North says. “I would love to find somebody who would appreciate it and preserve it.”
