Fredericksburg, January 19, 2016 (Newswire.com) - “It is a great honor to be entrusted to market and sell such a historically significant and well maintained home,” said John Nicholls, president of Nicholls Auction Marketing. “Following the original structure’s completion in 1860, it became the site of the first post office in West Point, a general store and was one of the five homes left standing when the Union Army burned West Point in 1865.”
The auction will be conducted by Nicholls Auction Marketing Group, in cooperation with Wilson Auction Company of Rhoadesville, VA.
“The home is a testament to the care and attention that it has received from its long and important list of owners who have maintained and renovated the home to its current impressive condition,” said Tony Wilson, Nicholls Auction Marketing Group auction coordinator.This historic property is in move-in-ready condition and is awaiting your family's arrival or would make a lovely bed and breakfast.
"The home’s many highlights include tall ceilings, living and dining rooms, fireplaces, RV parking, security system, porches, gazebo, basement, garage, and greenhouse,” said Wilson. “Moreover, the home is conveniently located in close proximity to public boat ramp access, and is only a short boat ride from the Chesapeake Bay.”
“The home has long served as one of the city’s focal points and now a new owner will have the opportunity to continue to enjoy and transform “Eaglerest” as it takes its place among the great houses of the Northern Neck,” said Wilson.
Nicholls said bidding on the property will open at $100,000.
The auction will begin at 11 a.m. Friday, Jan. 29 at the property. Bidders who can't attend in person may bid online by prior arrangement. Individuals seeking additional information may visit www.nichollsauction.com or call Tony Wilson 540-748-1359.
