Country music hall of fame member and multiple Grammy winner Kenny Roger’s country estate Beaver Dam Farms is set to be auctioned come July 9.
At an imposing 973-acres, the estate in Georgia is home to an impressive array of facilities: three private spring fed lakes, a 12,000-square-foot mansion, five guest houses and clubhouse, lake clubhouse and a two-acre indoor equestrian/multipurpose arenas with 44 stalls. The list doesn’t end there; there are also two swimming pools, two clay tennis courts and an 18-hole championship rated golf course.
The estate was of great significance to the prolific musician and businessman. “I was raised in the projects in Houston, Texas, and I always had this dream of doing something spectacular,” he said. “I remember when I was young, I would walk through the wealthy part of town on my way to school and saw the automated sprinklers and thought, ‘one day I’m going to have those.’ So, when I built the golf course, I would go out and sit on the golf cart and watch the sprinklers. To me, it was a sign that I had achieved my dreams.”
The property not only served as inspiration for Rogers’ many songs, but is also a reflection of his signature style. Throughout his residence, he had hosted several publicised golf tournaments on the greens he personally designed. These included the Classic Weekend, a fundraising event featuring basketball, tennis, fishing and golf besides music and entertainment.
The estate will be sold at the auction for or above USD3.5 million and will be fully furnished while the replacement cost of the property is estimated to be somewhere between USD30 to 40 million. “This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” said Good. “Beaver Dam Farms is rich in history and uniqueness, and someone is going to get a steal July 9 at the auction.”
The property is available for viewing every Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., from now until the July 9. Qualified buyers may schedule an appointment via email at [email protected]/* */.
