A showplace lodge in Jackson Hole, a waterfront retreat on Kiawah Island, and a country estate in North Carolina are all heading to the block in coming weeks. Read more in our weekly high-end real estate auction roundup.
By pretty much any standard, Bighorn Lodge in Jackson Hole, Wyoming is a showplace. The 10,000sf log home sits on a 5.32-acre site surrounded by Grand Teton National Park, with spectacular views of the mountains. Built in 2009 with “museum quality”specimen Western Cedar logs from British Columbia, the lodge has 5 bedrooms and 7 full baths, along with Family Room, Great Room, stone fireplaces, and a 6 car garage. In winter, a state of the art hydronic radiant head system keeps it cozy. For summer, the “thermal mass” of 10-inch thick stone and masonry slab floors, massive logs walls, and soaring cathedral ceilings keeps it cool. With the vast tracts of parkland around it, the lodge enjoys great privacy, but it’s just a15-minute drive from town. Once listed at $16m, with another $1m for the furnishing, it will be auctioned, furnishings included, on December 10th, with a reserve price of $5.995m.
Across the country, in Kiawah Island near Charleston, South Carolina, a waterfront estate is heading towards auction. Looking out on the marsh, with deepwater vistas, the 5300sf home has 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, and 2 half-baths, and a good deal more: a Heart Pine elevator, gourmet kitchen with arched brick hearth vent and Christopher Peacock custom cabinetry, a walk-in pantry, and access off the kitchen to a screened porch with grilling deck. Other features include an office, library, wine closet, and music room. Extensive covered porches surround the house, along with a custom deck. Outside, there’s a pool with waterfall, a pool house with guest loft and full bathroom, and a 4-car garage. The home is being sold in an “absolute” auction on December 6, meaning it will go to the highest bidder regardless of price.
Another waterfront estate is coming on the auction market in North Carolina. It sits on 100 acres with 2,000 feet of frontage along the Yadkin River in Advance, a short distance from Winston-Salem. The recently renovated main house offers 4 bedrooms and 4.5 baths. There’s a gourmet kitchen with 2 Viking ranges, a foyer with marble floors and cove ceiling, and a living room with a stone fireplace, cedar paneling, and a stone fireplace. The property offers even more: an outdoor living area with fireplace and swimming pool, a 2-story lakefront cabin with two bedrooms and fireplace, an airstrip, three barns, an 8-stall stable, and a studio. Surrounding it all are rolling hills, green pastures, and manicured grounds with miles of fencing and a 13-acre bass lake. It’s all being sold on December 8.
