Jul 2, 2010
Concierge Auctions will host a live, on-site auction of 2763 Sheep Meadow Lane, a private Lake George retreat with 528 feet of shoreline, on July 23. Originally listed for $1.395 million, buyers will have the opportunity to purchase the property at or above the published reserve of $850,000. The sale is being conducted in cooperation with listing agent Trudie McMaster of Select Sotheby's International Realty.
"After the successful auction of 34 Pulver Road last December, we're thrilled to be working with Concierge Auctions on another spectacular Lake George property," stated John Burke, President and CEO of Select Sotheby's International Realty. "This auction presents an amazing opportunity to own a premier lakefront home that embodies the best of both worlds - a peaceful, serene getaway paired with limitless outdoor activities. With other comparable homes on Lake George listed at an average of $1.72 million, being able to purchase this property above the reserve of only $850,000 is a tremendous opportunity."
Perched atop a rock cliff overlooking the pristine waters of Lake George, 2763 Sheep Meadow Lane contains a spacious, 2,648 square foot home with four bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms and nearly 530 feet of shoreline. Nestled in the quiet hamlet of Huletts Landing on Gardiner Point in upstate New York, distinctive details can be found throughout the home including exposed wood beams, window panels and molding, hardwood floors and a traditional stone fireplace. In addition to the formal living room and eat-in country kitchen, the attic is finished with floors and windows and spectacular views of Lake George can be seen from every room. The outdoor veranda is perfect for entertaining or lakefront peacefulness, and the protected dock and "jumping rock" is ideal for kids and swimming. Outdoor activity options are endless including biking, boating, golf, tennis, hiking and walking.
Perfectly situated as an ideal holiday or weekend getaway, the location is just over an hour drive from Saratoga Springs, two hours from Albany, three and a half hours to Montreal and just over four hours to both New York City and Boston. The popular ski town of Killington, VT is just over an hour away.
"This auction is not only ideal for anyone who seeks an active lakefront lifestyle in the Northeast, but it is also an opportunity to purchase a property without the headaches often associated with buying luxury homes in today's market," stated Laura Brady, Vice President of Marketing for Concierge Auctions. "Today many markets have over-inflated inventory levels, so it's difficult to determine which sellers are willing and able to accept true market value. Our process serves high-end buyers nationwide by identifying the most motivated seller in a market and presenting them in full light. The owner of this property is committed. This will be the next luxury home to sell on Lake George."
