Highest Bidder in No-Reserve Auction Gets Crosscreek Farm
Unlike reserve auctions where sellers reserve the right to refuse a lousy winning bid, no-reserve auctions give the item in question to the highest bigger whether the seller is happy with the price or not. Thus, in the off chance that few people go to this auction (and start off with a very low bid), someone could get Cross Creek Farm for a bargain.
And what a bargain it would be! The New Hope estate is a smart home (iPad and Sonos controls, among other amenities) situated on 93 acres and is set far off the road. A private driveway, which will probably make you feel like you’re in a car commercial if this promotional video for the property is any indication, leads to the house.
The renovated home includes a wood-paneled library and guest apartment, as well as game room and exercise studio in the finished basement. Details worth mentioning are the new black walnut floors, marble countertops, and custom millwork. The marble-floored foyer has a double staircase and the sunroom has French doors opening out to a patio.
So, planning on going?
The auction, handled by Concierge Auctions, will be at Crosscreek Farm on October 9th. Until then, the home is open to previews (via appointment) every day from 1-4pm. For more information, call (212) 257-5237.
