It’s hard to tell through all the sale’s layers, but it looks as though Tennessee Titans co-owner and board of directors member Kenneth S. Adams IV (Bud Adams’ grandson) may have bought a $5.5 million Forest Hills home this month. We can’t be sure, but the home was purchased by a newly created LLC out of San Antonio, Texas, where Adams hails from. The company, Lennochmore LLC, did not respond to questions about whether Adams was the person behind the purchase, but a search of Adams’ name and the company shows they have ties. May was also a big month for folks in the health care industry to purchase homes.
Below are May’s top 10 home sales in Nashville and the surrounding counties, ranked by sale price.
