Kansas City, MO (Vocus) May 14, 2010
Luxury mountaintop home and acreage outside Asheville to be sold at absolute auction. United Country – Rogers Auctioneers to sell custom timber frame home and 10 acres on June 5. Qualified buyers will have the opportunity to purchase a private, luxurious estate just minutes from downtown Asheville next month. The 10 acres will be sold in three tracts that may be purchased separately or in combination. Valued at more than $1 million, the property will be sold to the highest bidder, regardless of price.
In addition to the 3,300 square foot home and 10 acres of ridge top land, collectibles and vehicles also will be sold on June 5. Personal property being sold at the auction include a 2003 Cadillac CTS, 2006 Coachmen travel trailer, 14’ jon boat, Massey Ferguson farm tractor and implements, 25hp riding mower with bagger, hunting equipment, Polaris and Honda ATVs, Ford truck, guns, contemporary and antique furniture, wildlife art, vintage decoys and sports collectibles.
Conducted by Michael Rogers, auctioneer and president of United Country – Rogers Auctioneers, the live auction will take place onsite at 385 Warm Springs Road in Alexander, N.C. Registration for the event will begin at 8 a.m., and the auction will take place at 9 a.m. The real estate and personal property will be available for viewing by appointment beginning June 4 from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. and two hours prior to the event.
“This property is being sold as a living estate. Our sellers have decided to sell everything and travel, and they recognize the value of using an accelerated method of marketing – in other words, an auction – to sell their property,” said Rogers. “What does this mean for buyers? It means they have the opportunity to purchase a beautiful luxury home with pristine acreage at an affordable price. Today’s market conditions and the auction format allow sellers and buyers to come to a meeting of the minds quickly with a competitively achieved fair market value. In times like these, an auction is the best way to establish what real market value is.”
No expense was spared when this home was built. The custom home features a large master bedroom with walk-in closets and an oversized two-car garage, and its hand-cut frame was made with lumber harvested from the site. The home offers three bedrooms, three and one-half baths and three fireplaces, and the master bathroom features a beautiful marble mosaic tile floor and mountain scenery hand-painted on the walls by a local artist. The downstairs bedroom has its own fireplace and could be used as a den or game room, while a small upstairs bedroom could be easily enlarged by expanding into an adjoining closet.
Located just 5 miles from a new shopping center and 13 miles from downtown Asheville, N.C., this estate sits on 10 secluded, rolling acres with spectacular mountain views. Though the property is merely minutes of Interstate 40 and Interstate 26, all surrounding land is restricted and the home sits within a mile of the French Broad River and Sandy Mush Game Lands, which offer world-class fishing, rafting, hiking and more.
“This auction is the chance of a lifetime. Buyers have the rare opportunity to buy their dream home in a recreational paradise and one of Money magazine’s top 10 places to retire,” said Rogers. “If you’re looking for a private, beautiful home in an exceptional location, look no further!”
