Country music star Kenny Rogers
has been forced to sell his multi-million dollar residence in Georgia after plans to rebuild the property came under fire from neighbors. The singer hoped to transform the $2.3 million property in Sandy Springs into his dream home by demolishing the existing building and clearing areas of woodland.
But the extensive work has angered neighbors, who brand the site an eyesore. Alan Gottlieb, whose house is behind Rogers' property, says, "We all understand people have to develop lots, but to strip the land like this is crazy. He had a landscape plan that if he would've followed, would've been great. But he just decided to abandon it."
Rogers is now selling the land for $3.95 million. He has also planted $60,000 worth of trees on the property and plans to plant grass. He says, "I'm sorry for any inconvenience I might've caused them (neighbors). I tried desperately to be considerate to everyone out there, but you can't live your life for other people."
