OOLTEWAH, Tenn., April 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A stately southern mansion and guest residence with custom amenities perched atop a hill, located on 10 acres offering panoramic mountain and city views of nearby Chattanooga, perfect for entertaining guests on a grand scale, will sell at a live auction Without Reserve on May 10th, NYC-based Concierge Auctions has announced. Located less than 30 minutes from downtown Chattanooga at 2363 Heavenly View Drive, the grand estate — originally listed for $5.3 million — will sell to the highest bidder in cooperation with Debbie Elliott-Sexton and Sandy Poe of Alliance Sotheby's International Realty. This is the second time Concierge has partnered with Elliott-Sexton, following their sale of Villa Collina, a stunning, 36,000-square-foot estate in nearby Knoxville.
"Alliance Sotheby's International Realty considers it a pleasure to partner with Concierge Auctions again, this time to present the Windy Hills Estate auction," Elliott-Sexton stated. "This is a sophisticated residence that stands tall — almost magically — atop a hill with breathtaking views and the best amenities offered in a luxury home."
"The Windy Hills Estate is an exquisite, inspired property — one of the finest in the Chattanooga area," Poe added. "It's impeccably crafted with high-quality finishes, offering the very essence of luxury, elegance and comfort. Debbie and I are privileged to be a part of the process and look forward to naming a new owner on auction day."
Comprised of more than 8,700 square feet of living space behind a ceremonial gate, The Windy Hills Estate includes four bedroom suites, five full and one half bathrooms, imported fireplaces, cultured glass, soaring ceilings and expansive windows. Other highlights include an elegant full bar adjoining the formal dining room, a gourmet kitchen and countless indoor and outdoor living spaces that seamlessly intertwine. Each bedroom suite is located in its own separate area, offering the ultimate in privacy, and each has a poolside balcony for captivating sunset views. Outdoors, the property has gorgeous landscaping, multiple, spa-like infinity pools, a lavish outdoor entertainment area with multi-level patios for entertaining guests and a three-car side entry with a heated garage. The guest home offers an additional 2,800 square feet including two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
"The sale of unique, high-end residences is our expertise, and The Windy Hill Estate fits into our mold perfectly. It's architecturally stunning and offers the best finishes and amenities," stated Laura Brady, President of Concierge Auctions. "Our auctions motivate real sellers and present rare and significant opportunities for buyers who are able to name their own bid price on auction day. Having most recently successfully sold Villa Collina in the area, we're confident in another successful outcome in Tennessee on May 10th."
Located in Hamilton County, TN, named after Alexander Hamilton, the first Secretary of the Treasury, Ooltewah is a small town and Cherokee Indian word meaning "owls nest." Windy Hills Estate is less than 30 minutes from Chattanooga, considered by many to be a top southern travel destination thanks to its outdoor adventure, amazing restaurants, live events, art and world-class attractions. Tucked between the mountains of southeast Tennessee along the Tennessee River, the New York Times included Chattanooga in its article last year titled "The 45 Places to Go In 2012." Chattanooga is the fourth largest city in Tennessee, located about two hours from both Nashville and Atlanta, GA. The Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport, also known as Lovell Field, is located five miles east of Chattanooga's central business district.
The auction of the Windy Hills Estate will be held live on May 10th. A 2% commission is offered to the buyer's representing broker. The property is open for preview daily from 1 to 4 p.m. See Auction Terms and Conditions for full details.
