Taylor Swift’s Childhood Home Hits the Market
Before she made it big as a country music superstar, Pennsylvania native Taylor Swift spent her childhood in this restored Classical revival residence in the city of Reading. The “22” singer lived in the home for 10 years before moving to Nashville with her family to pursue her music career.

Built in 1929, the three-story home makes a grand first impression with its stucco walls, dentil trim and columned portico. Through the front door, the elegant foyer is flanked by a sunny living room on one side, a formal dining room on the other. Just off the dining room, there’s a cozy study with a fireplace where Taylor once played the guitar, according to the listing.
Spread over 5,050 square feet of living space, the home comes with six bedrooms and five remodeled bathrooms outfitted with Kohler fixtures and travertine, marble and granite finishes. Whether due to the updates or the home’s famous former resident, the current owners are hoping to make quite a profit: They purchased the home for $480,000 in 2007 and listed it this month for $799,500.
