Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) October 16, 2012
Sweet Apple Farm is a well-known destination to the residents of St. Clair County, Ala., and has acquired a distinctive reputation in north Alabama and Georgia as a premier wedding venue and corporate function facility. Interested buyers will now have the opportunity to purchase this lucrative private estate at auction prices. This 80-acre property will be offered to the public during a live event on Thursday, Nov. 8.
This auction, conducted by United Country – Redfield Group Auctions, Inc., of Gadsden, Ala., will take place on-site at 4 p.m. Registration for the event will begin at 3 p.m. The property is available for viewing by appointment. Auction representatives will be on-site from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. daily from Thursday, Nov. 1 through auction day. Broker participation is encouraged.
“Our sellers recognize the value of using an accelerated method of marketing – in other words, an auction – to sell their properties,” said Mike Fisher, auctioneer and president of United Country – Redfield Group Auctions, Inc. “What does this mean for buyers? It means they have the opportunity to purchase this great investment property 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.”
Sweet Apple Farm consists of 80 fenced and gated acres surrounded by hundreds of acres of woods, making it a natural habitat for deer, wild turkey and other native wildlife. The property holds an 1841 log cabin, a cedar home and original barn, which have all benefited from extensive renovation. The 5,000-square-foot Crystal Chandelier Barn has been host to numerous weddings and other events. The property also features a small separate wedding chapel, a screened pavilion, a country cottage and the three-bedroom main house with a detached four-car garage, a commercial warehouse with office. All this overlooks rolling hills, green pastures, a manicured landscape and two ponds.
All the homes and buildings are selling completely furnished, and all the equipment and vehicles needed to maintain the property will be included.
“This regional landmark is selling due to health concerns of the owner, who has slowed down operations, but has continued to book events well into 2013,” said Fisher. “Sweet Apples Farm is a true turnkey investment property with incredible income potential or could easily be used as a magnificent private family estate.” The owner estimates immediate potential in the mid six figures, which could double through moderate expansion.
Sweet Apple Farm is located five miles off I-20, 30 minutes from Birmingham, Ala., and 90 minutes from Atlanta. It rests halfway between Talladega Super Speedway and Barber Motorsports Park, which are each 20 minutes away from the property and attract 50,000 to 150,000 race fans to the area for three weekends each year.
