The latest auction from Concierge Auctions isn't a home, it's a whole resort. The real estate auction company has scheduled the sale of the Garnet Hill Lodge in the Adirondack Mountains. The Garnet Hill Lodge was originally listed for $2.5 million but the property, located at 39 Garnet Hill Road in North River, New York, will sell to the highest bidder regardless of price. The sale is being conducted in cooperation with listing agent Shane Newell of Select Sotheby's International Realty.
"Garnet Hill is a hidden gem - tucked away in the unspoiled wilderness in one of the least populated counties in the nation," Newell stated. "But make no mistake, these are the most realistic, determined sellers in upstate New York. Buyers searching for an operating mountain resort business or for a corporate or family retreat should not miss this opportunity."
The resort has views of the Thirteenth Lake with nearly 16,000 square feet of functional space on 268 acres. The buildings include a main lodge and two additional cabins. The large gathering room in the main lodge includes a reception desk and dining room with plenty of seating and natural light. Two additional lounges, a TV room and a four-season dining porch offer more private conversation areas and a grand stone fireplace is a natural gathering spot. There are 16 upstairs suites, nine of which have balconies. The current owners operate a ski center from the lodge but it could be a bed-and-breakfast or a private family estate.
Two additional cabins, Birches and the Tea House, could serve as guest houses. The Birches has five suites and a large gathering room with full kitchen and dining tables. The Tea House, a smaller sister cabin, contains four guest bedrooms with convenient en-suite bathrooms, each featuring Jacuzzi bathtubs. Both are just a short ski or hike from the main lodge.
The property will be available for preview daily from 1 to 4 pm through March 14. Bidders will be able to participate in the March 15 auction in person or via phone or Internet. A 2.5% commission is offered to the buyer's broker. See Auction Terms and Conditions for full details. For more information call 877-214-3785 or visit GarnetHillAuction.com.
