Tulip Hill Gets A New Owner
When I mentioned Tulip Hill, a Maryland home up for auction, some of you expressed concern that it find a good buyer. Concierge Auctions has released the results of the auction which took place on April 10. The pre-Revolutionary War estate sold above its listing price of $2.375 million (the most recently listed price, it was once as high as $7.5 million). George Graham, CEO of Concierge Auctions has said that their process found bidders who "appreciated the pedigree of the property." There were a total of over 500 visitors to the estate with over 100 interested buyer prospects, and 17 registered bidders from Dubai, England and six U.S. states. Tulip Hill is a Georgian plantation house built by Samuel Galloway circa 1756. It is on nearly 52 acres that includes water frontage and pier and includes terraced gardens and manicured grounds. The buyer is said to be a retired senior military official from the area.
