No auction for Stone Ridge estate in Appomattox County
Tonite's auction of Stone Ridge Estate, a 2,500-acre historic estate in Appomattox County, has been canceled.
Originally scheduled for Sept. 8, the auction was postponed until Wednesday night, Sept. 28, when the 22,336-square-foot Georgian Manor home was set to be sold via a mobile app.
According to Concierge Auctions, based in New York, the property was scheduled to hit the virtual auction block with 10 registered bidders vying to purchase it.
In cooperation with partner agent Wilbur “France” Burger of Re/Max 1st Olympic Realty in Lynchburg, Concierge said marketing and exposure efforts had generated considerable interest including:
• 50,673 total property page views across ConciergeAuctions.com
• 139,300 people reached through multiple digital advertising campaigns
• 3,429 views of the property video
• 34 private showings
“Despite this qualified interest, the seller elected to withdraw the property from auction. Stone Ridge Estate will remain on the market and is still available for offers,” the company said in a press release.
The home, built in 1789 with stone quarried from the property, was previously listed for $10 million. It has been architecturally restored and expanded. Stone Ridge has a 20-stall barn, 20 miles of riding trails, views of the James River and a 6,000-bottle wine cellar among other amenities.
