“We hate to sell, but honestly, we are ready to move on to other opportunities.
“It’s exciting to know that a month from now, the property will have a new owner.”
The property, to be auctioned by New York City-based Concierge Auctions in cooperation with Rob Carney of TTR Sotheby’s International Realty, comprises three fully-restored residences, including an elegant stone manor main house and two fully restored guest houses.
