A riverfront New Kent County mansion has found a buyer at auction – as long as a judge OKs the sale.
The 10,000 square-foot home received a high bid of around $800,000 at auction Tuesday, said Linda Terry from the auction company Tranzon.
The mansion, which sits on a 1.8-acre lot along the Chickahominy River, has an assessed value of $1.2 million, Terry said.
The sale was a court-ordered division of the owners’ assets. So now the deal has to get a judge’s approval.
Terry said she’s confident the deal will get passed by the judge.
“I think it’s a very fair price,” she said. “I think it’s a good buy, but it’s not a steal. It’s a good deal for the buyer and the seller.”
Terry declined to identify the winning bidder but said he is a local business owner.
About 25 to 30 people attended the auction. Terry said bidding started between $200,000 and $300,000.
Built in 1997, the home is about 12,000 square feet after upgrades and has 8 bathrooms. There’s also a pool, water slide, pool house and dock with powerboat and jet ski lifts.
No date has yet been set for the second part of the judge’s ordered auction. A cache of classic cars will be sold online through eBIDLOCAL.com.
