Folk-pop singer Jewel is selling her Texas home at the surprisingly affordable price of $335,000. Located about two hours outside Dallas in Stephenville, the almost 3,000-square-foot property is propped on 4.4 acres of land and features three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Jewel and her ex-husband, Ty Murray, bought the ranch house back in 2007. Although the exterior of the home is a bit drab, the inside was professionally decorated and radiates charming character. It features oak floors, white ceiling beams, and a colorful fireplace. The open floor plan is definitely a highlight of the home, as the dining and living areas connect to the kitchen that has distressed-looking cabinets and green river-rock countertops. The den includes floor-to-ceiling shelves and opens to the spacious yard. According to Variety, the Grammy-nominated singer snagged a $1.3 million home in Nashville last year after her divorce quite an upgrade from this humble abode. Look ahead for more photos of Jewel's now-for-sale property.

Genre-crossing folk-pop-country musician Jewel has her spread in the boonies near Stephenville, Texas, up for grabs at $335,000 after it was first and briefly listed at $350,000. The Alaska-bred multiple Grammy nominee and her ex-husband, rodeo champion Ty Murray, purchased the property in March 2007 for an undisclosed amount. Current listing details show the not-quite-3,000-square-foot ranch house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, and sits on 4.4 rural acres about two hours southwest of downtown Dallas. Professionally decorated and custom-finished open-plan living spaces feature hand-scraped oak floors, whitewashed ceiling beams and a colorfully tiled fireplace with massive, rough-hewn wood mantelpiece. The kitchen, completely open to the dining and living areas, features custom-painted and faux-distressed cabinetry, a combination of gray concrete and mossy green Brazilian river-rock countertops, a bead-board-paneled ceiling treatment, and a full array of up-to-date stainless steel appliances. A spacious, separate den, lined with floor-to-ceiling shelves and media storage cabinets, opens through a wide bank of French doors to an essentially un-landscaped yard that quickly gives way to open ranchlands.

Records show Murray continues to own several nearby properties and, according to the eagle-eyed guys at Celebrity Real Estate Aerial, the then-newly single Jewel decamped to Nashville, where in March 2015 she shelled out a tetch more than $1.3 million for a brand spanking new, 5,000-square-foot home on just over an acre in the upscale Green Hills neighborhood.

Too bad it's in, Texas.

I guess that just makes it, Stephenville.

Hey, chicky!  How hae you been?

I know a bunch of people that are either from, or moved to Texas.  They all LOVE it.  It's not my kind of state.  It's a wee bit backwards thinking (in my head, anyway).

"Housewives told to recapture their youth
By wearing floral print and suede
Fixing their hairdos with PC, chemical-free hairspray
Martha Stewart taught them to make on TV "   I always did think this song was very, tongue-in-cheek.

 Austin, has become very hipster, big on the arts and movie scene.  I have a colleague there.  Then there is the panhandle, which is mega religious - and the rest, is a lot of cowboys.  Big hats, big belt buckles, big egos.  Not for me.  Most people I know that are moving there now, are doing it for the taxes...or lack, there-of.

I was in San Antonio in the fall. It was lovely. Of course it never rains and we were there during two straight days of rain. But it didn't feel back-doorsy at all. My friend moved there about 2 years ago and she loves it.

Hey, chicky!  How hae you been?

I'm awesome.. but busy! I don't get on here enough anymore!  :hug:

This house is lovely, I've always liked the inside. The outside needs some work though... couldn't these two afford a landscaper or something? lol.  :rolleyes:

It says they bought the house together but I thought it was Ty's in the beginning? Case in point:

-Yes you guessed it I moved there cuz I fell in love with a man
-I moved his ex old-lady's things out of the closet, the same closet I had move my things back in

I wanna see pics of Jewel's new 1.3mil digs!

Anyhoo...

Me and the Hubs might be visiting the US in the fall and Texas is one of the places we had on our list!  :)

The fact that it's Bush country is enough to keep me from ever living there :facepalm:

I thought the same thing about it being Ty's house. But that could just be poetic license in the lyrics....

I'd love to see the new digs too!

Texas is lovely to visit. Just not where I would want to live. Enjoy the states!

That's her home studio! I think she recorded the basic tracks for Sweet & Wild there. The ranch house is on the other end of the ranch, and this is the property they bought and added on, isn't it? There's a video- I knew I'd recognized this place from somewhere:

Funk dat place! Do you see the giant wasp nest in the second to last photo? I am not living any where near wasps. Eeeek!!!

If I was Ty I would have been like calling Jewel from a hotel "Honey, gotta get rid of that wasp nest before I can come home. Sorry!"

You're on the money as usual, Randy!

From Alan:

" AKA The Jewel Box. Lots of recording there including a few albums. Lullabye and The Merry Goes Round were essentially recorded there. Much of Let It Snow too."
