Auctioneer’s Note

The sellers of this home did it right. They found excellent acreage and then designed and built a custom home (and unbelievable outbuilding) to make the most of the setting. Now having built and moved to their new home, they have chosen auction to expedite this sale. See this property and grounds for yourself at one of our open house events and then come bid your price on December 12th at 2:00. See you at the auction!
