The auction of the luxury estate was conducted in cooperation with listing agent Mary Horn of Weichert Realtors.

"We are thrilled to have accomplished our objective of selling the property for the maximum market price without contingencies. After trying traditional marketing tactics to sell this property over the past five years, it is remarkable that the Concierge Auctions team was able to identify over 125 buyer prospects in only five weeks," stated Fawn Hill Farm seller Herb Glatt. "My family and I enjoyed many years at Fawn Hill, but we are excited that the property will now pass to new stewards. I hope they will enjoy it as much as we have."

Concierge Auctions' global outreach produced over 200 showings, 126 prospects and 11 bidders. The five-week marketing campaign generated an impressive 3,800 visits to the auction website from 57 countries (led by the US, Canada, United Kingdom, India, Netherlands and Germany) and all US states (led by NJ, NY, CA, PA, TX and CT).

The estate's main residence boasts 21 rooms including seven bedrooms, seven bathrooms and three half bathrooms. A true colonial, the home's interior features pegged hardwood floors, arched doorways, a grand Georgian staircase and seven distinctive fireplaces. The grounds are highlighted by a tree-lined driveway, private courtyard, two-bedroom guest house, sunken formal garden and a side patio overlooking a garden retreat with a swimming pool and pool house. The nearby motor courtyard has 12 bay garages and a cottage with two apartments.
