Featured Auction: Gentleman’s Retreat Tucked Away in Rich Valley

In a short span of time, Albert Burney has earned the reputation as one of the leading companies in auctioning luxury real estate. The firm, established in 2001 by Warren A. Ward, secures and sells unique real estate using his innovative approach to marketing and his commitment to providing individual attention to each property.

On Saturday, August 23rd, at 11:00 AM EDT, anxious bidders will assemble for the auction of a 360+/- acre Gentleman’s Farm near Saltville, Virginia. The secluded retreat, tucked away in the Rich Valley of the Blue Ridge Mountains, will be selling at absolute auction– regardless of price! The property is beautifully situated between Marion and Saltville, each city being about 20 minutes away. It is located within one hour of Bristol, Virginia.

This gentleman’s farm includes 2.7+/- miles of land on the banks of the North Fork Holston River, a quaint two-story farmhouse, and seven outbuildings.

Existing Structures:

The original two-story farmhouse was built in 1923. The home was partially renovated in 1984 and now has 3 bedrooms and 3 large baths. The Master Bath boasts a 100 Year Anniversary claw foot Kohler tub. The original 12” red oak baseboards and trim, built-in cabinets, stairs, banisters and mantles have all been refinished throughout the home. The kitchen was updated with repurposed wood from an old barn and tile countertops. The home also features a walk-up attic, a root seller and metal roof. The wrap-around porch provides beautiful views of both the North Fork Holston River and the Blue Ridge Mountains. The property has 7 original outbuildings: barns, workshop, wood storage, outhouse, pig house, and black smith shop. There is also a 220 ft. deep well with a ½ horse power pump (dug in 1984).

The Land:

Wildlife on the land is abundant, including deer, turkey and other wildlife. The elevation ranges from 1,900 +/- feet at the river to 2,700 +/- feet at the highest ridge. This property is excellent for hiking, fishing, hunting, swimming at rock falls or just rocketing on the front porch listening to the sounds of the river.

There is currently a conservation easement on approximately 298 +/- acres of the property.

The auction site will be 5209 Valley Road, Satlville, VA 24370.

Bidders are invited to attend an open public inspection prior to the sale. An Albert Burney representative will be on site from August 19th through auction day from 10:00 AM until 5:00 PM. For more information call (800) 434-1654.
