Jayhawks Über Fan’s 54-Acre Estate to Hit the Auction Block

United Country Real Estate Announces $500,000 Starting Bid on Property Previous Listed at $5 Million

Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) August 19, 2013 - The owner of Stone Bridge Estate is such a huge fan of Kansas University Basketball he constructed a replica Jayhawks court in his Louisburg estate. This roughly 54-acre property is now being offered to the public with a starting bid that falls well below the original asking price.

Stone Bridge Estate – located in Louisburg, Kan. – is a gated property featuring an authentic English Ambassador-built home. This home has over 10,000 square feet of living space, tapestry padded walls, coffered walnut ceilings, a library with secret passage to the master suite, 16th-century medieval-style furnishings and a replica K.U. Jayhawks basketball court, which was featured in the ESPN documentary “There’s No Place Like Home.” The balance of the estate has a professionally designed zero-edge pool, greenhouse imported from England and a private barn and horse stables area.

United Country – Kansas City Auction & Realty will conduct a live event on Wednesday, September 25 to auction off Stone Bridge Estate. The starting bid on the property will be $500,000, a fraction of the $5 million the owner was previously asking. The auction will begin at 10 a.m. on-site at 29910 Antioch Road in Louisburg. Registration for the event will begin at 9 a.m., and the property will be made available for tour on Thursday, Aug. 29 and September 12 from 4 to 7 p.m. During each preview, potential buyers will have the opportunity to tour the property while enjoying a wine and cheese tasting event compliments of Somerset Ridge Vineyard and Winery.

“Our sellers recognize the value of using an accelerated method of marketing – in other words, an auction – to sell their properties,” said Shawn Terrel, owner and auctioneer of United Country – Kansas City Auction and Realty. “What does this mean for buyers? It means a true Jayhawks fan can purchase this one-of-a-kind Kansas luxury estate at an affordable price. Today’s market conditions and the auction format allow sellers and buyers to come to a meeting of the minds quickly with a competitively achieved fair market value. In times like these, an auction is the best way to establish what real market value is.”
