Taylor Swift's childhood home is for sale

Taylor Swift's childhood home in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania is on the market for an asking price of $799,500.

The property listing makes reference to the house's famous connection, noting that a young Swift used to practice guitar in the study. Swift lived at the house from the ages of nine to fourteen, having spent her earliest years living on a Christmas tree farm in the nearby Cumru Township. The six-bedroom, three-story property was built in 1929.

Swift was offered an artist development deal with Nashville's RCA Records at the age of fourteen. Deciding to relocate to Tennessee, her parents sold their Wyomissing home. They also sold a vacation property in Cape May County, New Jersey for $2.4 million.

Swift's father is a financial advisor at Merrill Lynch. Her mother is now a homemaker but began her career in finance as a mutual fund marketing executive.

Until she was nine years old, Swift lived on a Christmas tree farm in Cumru Township, Pennsylvania.

Swift spent her childhood summers at her family's vacation home in Stone Harbor, New Jersey. They purchased the house for $485,000 in the 1990s and sold it for $2.4 million in 2005, following the family's relocation to Nashville, TN.

Taylor Swift pictured paddle boarding in Rhode Island

On Wednesday, Swift hit the beach in Watch Hill, R.I., where the singer owns a summer home. Joined by three female friends, Swift was spotted paddle boarding on Napatree Beach in sunglasses and a purple two-piece bathing suit.

"She had a little trouble getting off the board, but she definitely held her own," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. A Watch Hill resident adds that once Swift made it to the shore, she announced "successful landing!"

After spending some time on the water, Swift waved to fans before heading home.

On Tuesday, Swift was spotted shopping in the same area, accompanied by a bodyguard.
