Every pop icon’s path to stardom has to start somewhere. For country music singer Taylor Swift, that start was in Wyomissing, PA. Swift’s childhood home recently hit the market with an asking price of $799,500, offering a rare look into the beginnings of the blossoming music star.
Sited on a three-quarter-acre lot, Swift’s childhood home has been restored to offer 5,050 square feet. The interior features detailed molding, hardwood and marble flooring, and custom finishes. Located on the second floor is a grand master bath that boasts a glass-lined shower, a soaking tub and granite counter tops. The third floor has a bonus room and a study area.

The listing for the six-bedroom, five-bathroom home is careful to detail intimate areas of the home, noting a study where a young Swift practiced guitar. Swift lived in the three-story Classical revival home during her early teenage years. At the age of 14, Swift and her family relocated to a Tudor-style home in Nashville, TN, after being offered an artist development contract from RCA Records.
Besides being a hot topic in the music and teen dating scene, Swift has made real estate news with a bevy of purchases over the past two years. In 2011, Swift posted her 4,929-square-foot home in Nashville for $1.45 million. The following year, she splurged on a Cape Cod love nest for $4.9 million to be closer to then beau Conor Kennedy. Swift moved up the Eastern seaboard in April of this year, buying (allegedly) a posh seaside estate in Watch Hill, RI, for $17.75 million.
