Fine & Company WI, LLC the nation’s boutique real estate auction company announced an upcoming auction of one of Southern Wisconsin’s palatial estates, an 18,000 square foot country estate in Darien, Wisconsin.

Michael A. Fine, principal of Fine and Company, said: “The real estate auction has undergone its own epiphany – from days gone by of selling rural real estate to its present-day evolution as a smart business strategy to sell and acquire truly unique trophy homes that are of interest to a national audience. Those on both sides of the auction, purchasers and sellers alike, have come to find tangible value in this marketing and sales method.”
This magnificent country estate is an achievement in form and function, in its grandeur and at the same time its simplicity, makes it well suited for those with sophisticated taste to enjoy their success. This is truly the finest estate ever conceived in this beautiful rural community.
An especially attractive feature of this estate is its storybook setting on sixteen acres of wooded and manicured grounds with a stocked spring fed pond, and dual verandas all of which make it ideal for intimate or memorable entertaining,” Mr. Fine said.
Soaked in natural light, this distinctive estate boasts seven bedrooms, five full plus 4 half bathrooms, 5 fireplaces, attached 3 car garage, guest suite with its own entrance, office, lower level kitchen, a classic pub and billiard room plus outdoor pool and pond. The carriage house features a caretaker’s apartment and an additional four-car heated garage.
Fine noted, “The auction is a systematic and sophisticated marketing approach to the sale of real estate not found in conventional brokerage that the auction focuses attention on the property and establishes a relative time-certain date of sale, which is especially appealing to sellers of means who are intent on moving on to the next phase of their highly productive lives.
Owning a home should not have the effect of a ball and chain around your leg tying you down to a location that no longer fits your lifestyle or needs.”
