STANARDSVILLE, Virginia (Feb. 21, 2017) — An estate overlooking the Shenandoah National Park, featuring a luxury home and a five-acre producing vineyard, is being sold in a sealed bid auction. Woltz & Associates is marketing the estate and managing the sale in cooperation with Fine & Company Real Estate and Advisory Services.
“This is one of the nicest rural estates I’ve seen in quite a while. The 5,000-square-foot main house has expansive views of the protected South River Valley,” said Jim Woltz, president of the auction company.
The main house, built in 1992, was designed to blend into the surroundings and provide views from all rooms, with a flowing floor plan, high ceilings, walls of glass, and high-quality materials such as Douglas Fir, Mahogany and Cedar.
“The views and privacy are just amazing, with northern exposure from the back deck and magnificent sunrises and sunsets. And because these lands are protected, the views will remain just as they are. Yet, it’s an easy commute to Charlottesville or Harrisonburg,” said Woltz.
The vineyard is situated at the ideal elevation of 800 to 900 feet, allowing excellent air flow, frost protection, and superior growing conditions for wine grapes. Mature vines include Chardonnay, Petit Manseng, and Viognier, with grapes already supplying several nearby award-winning wineries. “With 92.6 acres, including land ready for additional planting, this could easily become a destination for wine lovers touring the area,” said Woltz.
Sealed bids are due on or before 3 p.m. Eastern, March 29. They should be sent to Woltz & Associates, 23 Franklin Road Southwest, Roanoke, Virginia, 24011.
The auction staff will be on site March 4, 11, 18 and 25 from 1 to 3 p.m. for inspections. Those seeking additional information may visit woltz.com or call 800-551-3588.
