ANDOVER, MA – A famed 20,000 square-foot hilltop estate in the Boston suburb of Andover, MA is being offered for sale in a sealed bid auction by Madison Hawk Partners, LLC, a national real estate firm and industry leader specializing in Structured Accelerated Sales.
Previously listed at $6.5 million, the offering for the majestic home will allow bidders to name their price for the modern and luxurious residence once featured in the HBO movie Clear History and on HGTV’s Million Dollar Rooms. The sealed bid deadline is Tuesday, November 4th, 2014.
The fully-amenitized, nine-bedroom mansion lies on four private manicured and wooded acres atop Bald Hill just 25 miles from Boston. The trophy estate features an elegant cedar and fieldstone exterior that perfectly complements the quaint New England surrounding property and includes a multitude of formal and informal living spaces.
Found throughout the sweeping layout are nine and one half baths, a large chef’s kitchen with professional Viking and Wolf appliances, cherry and mahogany custom moldings, radiant flooring, five fireplaces, spacious master suite with sitting area and private deck, nanny/in-law quarters, expansive living room with built-in media center and fieldstone fireplace and three-car heated garage.
Yet, what unquestionably separates the estate from the marketplace is abundance of resort-style recreational facilities that create a one-of-a-kind family living and entertainment environment. The residence boasts a full-sized indoor basketball court with SportCourt flooring and a balcony with bleachers, huge outdoor living area with built-in ten person hot tub and fire pit, indoor pool with waterslide and hot tub, full size bowling alley, bar with arcade games, sauna, locker rooms, billiard room, batting cage and outdoor professional putting green.
“Rarely does such a distinguished and recognizable home become available,” says Jeff Hubbard, President of the New York-based, national real estate auction firm. “No stone has been left unturned when it comes to living an active and upscale lifestyle in this residence. Every conceivable amenity for recreation and entertainment blends with exquisite and comfortable interior living spaces to create a residential address that is as unique as it is grand.”
A popular destination for celebrities, dignitaries and more, Andover is situated less than 40 minutes north of Boston proving easy access to the City’s business and entertainment, while also remaining within close proximity to the mountains and lakes of New Hampshire or Maine and the Beaches of Cape Ann. The Town is a commuter’s dream with major Interstates 93 and 495 bisecting the town and mass transportation with direct service into Boston via MBTA trains and is home to the distinguished Phillips Academy.
A Bidder’s Information Packet priced at $25 is a requirement for bidding, as well as a certified or cashier’s check. Bidders also must attend a scheduled open house to view the property. Inspections will take place October 11th, 19th and 25th, November 1st & 2nd from 11:00 a.m. to 2 p.m. by appointment.
