STAMFORD, Conn., Nov. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Located in North Stamford near the New Canaan city line is one of Connecticut's finest historical country estates known as The Calhoun Estate. The perfect marriage of a magical stone residence with a classic New England presence. The homes' enchanting history featured the famous Round Hill Highland Games back in the early 1970's. Before that, in 1721, it was part of a real working farm owned by J. S. Davenport. Davenport Farms was known for raising cattle. The living areas of this stone beauty are truly unique. This six bedroom/five full and two half bath home, with its expansive kitchen, two room guest suite, outdoor swimming pool, porte-cochere with large stone fireplace, half moon driveway and majestic trees which surround the estate reminds one of the classic movie Christmas in Connecticut. "I just love this home! Good location near the Merritt Parkway but still tucked away in one of North Stamford's finest communities," states June Rosenthal, William Pitt Sotheby's International Realty. Ms. Rosenthal's partner, Linda Sentementes, went further by stating; "For the Seller to commit to sell this home, with over 2.5 acres, to the highest bidder on December 17th at or above $1.4M is an anomaly in our marketplace. The City of Stamford assessor has valued this property at over $2.3M. All I can say is, I'm calling my clients!"
Why an Auction? The current owners live in Florida and felt that their inability to utilize the country estate on a more routine basis was depleting from the beauty of the property and that it was just time to let it go. To that end the Ownership has stated that the property will be auctioned with a starting bid of only $1M and sold to the highest bidder at or above $1.4M. A year ago this home was listed for $2.75M. "This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity," said Todd Good, CEO of Accelerated Marketing Group. " The Calhoun Estate is rich in history and uniqueness and someone is going to get a steal December 17th at the Auction." Qualified buyers may tour the estate each Saturday and Sunday from 1-3 p.m. beginning November 19th and up until the Auction date. (We will be closed the weekend after Thanksgiving.)
