A Chestnut Hill commercial building near the City of Nashville Cemetery has sold for $2.7million – with 61-year-old musician, spoken word artist and ex-lead singer of SoCal punk band Black Flag Henry Rollins the new owner.
According to a Davidson County Deeds Registry document, the purchaser of the property, whose addresses are 1024-1026 Third Ave. S., is an LLC affiliated with Henry Garfield. The LLC shares an address with the local office of artist/musician-focused business management firm Gelfand, Rennert & Feldman. This entity apparently represents Henry Rollins – who, among other things, led Black Flag from 1981 to 1985 and the more experimental Rollins Band from 1987 to 2006 – whose legal name is Henry Garfield.
The seller was Robert McTyre, who with his wife Wanda McTyre founded the Nashville AirComfort HVAC business in 1982. Now based in Pegram, the business previously operated out of the building that was just sold. The structure apparently offers no tenants and sits midway between downtown to the north and Wedgewood-Houston to the south.
Robert McTyre paid a collective $242,082 for the property in two transactions (one in 1993 and the other in 1999), according to Metro records.
Jennifer Rogers, Senior Advisor at NAI Nashville, represented the seller. Maria Bermudez and Betsy Littrell of Village Real Estate represented Rollins, according to a source.
