MARTINSBURG, W.Va., May 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Quail Creek Farm -- a 54-acre luxury estate with a 13,000-square-foot home, stables, riding circle, pool, guest cottages and access to the Potomac River -- will sell at auction Friday, June 14, with Woltz & Associates managing the sale.
The Berkeley County estate in its current form was the vision of former owner Edwin Dodd, who was CEO and president of Owens- Illinois.
"This is truly a remarkable estate. The home has 10 bedrooms, 11 full baths, 10 working fireplaces, a sauna, three kitchens and an elevator. The estate is suited for use as a home, corporate retreat or equestrian center," said Jim Woltz, president of the auction company. "In all, this estate has approximately 21,000-square-feet of heated living space and is only a 90-minute drive from the Washington D.C./ Baltimore area. Estates like this come along rarely, and this is worth much more than the modest $995,000 opening bid."
One rare feature is a large two-level "bank barn" renovated by Dodd in 1986 and used for entertaining. The estate also has a scenic pond and in-ground pool. A stone pool house has two bedrooms and a sauna.Woltz said he expects stables and riding areas to attract the attention of those interested in its use as an equestrian estate. "The six-stall stable, set on a hill overlooking the farm, has a work area and office, and there are riding areas in both the front and rear of the building. This makes it an excellent setting for owning and training fine horses," said Woltz. "The estate has deeded access to a boat launch and slip area, providing nine miles of navigable deep water on a gorgeous stretch of the Potomac," said Woltz. The auction will be held at the estate at 2 p.m. Friday, June 14. Individuals interested in additional information may visit http://www.woltz.com or call 800-551-3588.
