GREENWOOD, Va., Oct. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Building upon its successful track record of selling luxury properties with historical significance, Concierge Auctions is pleased to announce yesterday's live auction sale of Ramsay, a 78-acre circa 1895 estate with unparalleled views of the Blue Ridge Mountains located just outside of Charlottesville. Listed as both a Virginia Historic Landmark and on the National Register of Historic Places, Ramsay sold in cooperation with listing agents Ross Stevens of Stevens & Company and Stephen McLean of McLean Faulconer Inc. The winning bidder is represented by Andy Stevens of Long & Foster Real Estate and came as a result of direct outreach to the Concierge database of luxury agents and buyers worldwide.
"I enjoyed working with Concierge Auctions to find the ideal new owners of Ramsay," Stevens stated. "The Concierge team was efficient and professional, and I would recommend them in the future to any client choosing the auction route."
The five-week global marketing campaign generated over 12,000 website visitors from all US states (led by Virginia, New York, Florida and California) and 104 international countries (led by Canada, the UK, Australia and Singapore). In total there were 1,449 inquiries, 78 showings and 8 bidders.
Ramsay sits atop a prominent knoll surrounded by lush, gently rolling pastures, with 180-degree views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The property consists of a main house; a detached front gable garage; a Cape Cod-style guest cottage; a two-story farm house; a three-room studio; a workshop; a potting shed and a barn — all meticulously restored.
"Concierge Auctions has a proven track record of selling unique, historic estates nationwide, including Tulip Hill c.1756, The Merritt-Hutchinson Estate c.1873 and Topridge c.1909, and now we proudly add Ramsay to the list. Storied properties such as these are incomparable, so the best way to identify value is through buyer competition," stated Laura Brady, President of Concierge Auctions. "We appreciate the support from the real estate community in the greater Charlottesville area. Ross Stevens, Stephen McLean, Andy Stevens and all other brokers who introduced potential buyers to the process were key to yesterday's success."
