When the journalist from Realtor.com, Erik Gunther called yesterday to interview me for his REALTOR.com article of This Week’s Hottest Listings, he asked “What makes this property so searched? Why do you think thousands of people are looking at it this week?” I responded with “My only explanation is GOD and the fact that this property is UBER-Fantastic.” Sometimes I want to pinch myself, so I just look up the sky and say “Thank you, God. You are awesome”. In this case, I also have to give posthumous credit to the designer and owner. His forethought and love of nature, created an estate of scenic beauty and serenity.
Erik’s article highlights the following, however there is so much unsaid quality and amentities that go undescribed in the article. You must discover this breathtaking piece of heaven for yourself to understand the true value.
Erik stated “Spread over 100 acres in western Pennsylvania, this week’s most popular home on realtor.com® is a chance for a bargain-hunting millionaire—billionaire, perhaps?—to scoop up a vast compound on the cheap.
About an hour outside of Pittsburgh, this prodigious property with four houses is priced at a mere $2.2 million. But as the listing agent informed us, it was almost impossible to come up with comps for this enormous estate.
Along with the multiple residences, a buyer will acquire a private lake (dock included), paved trails for ATV riding, and a private car wash. Yes, a private car wash.
The agent added that a buyer will get about $6.6 million in property, amenities, and construction for just a third of the price. So, while it’s a stretch to call $2.2 million a bargain, it may apply in the case of this compound.”
