Crantzdorf Castle Auction Cancelled
Crantzdorf Castle is back on the market click here.
Originally listed as high as $28,500,000, Crantzdorf Castle was to head to the auction block on Thursday, June 16th, 2011 at 11:00 AM with no reserve. The highest bidder would have taken possession of the Estate. The property is owned by a local auto dealer named Steve Grindstaff and was pulled from the auction with short notice. Instead, an offer for the castle “is on the table and being negotiated,” according to Kari Neering, associate vice president for Rubenstein Public Relations. “The seller has elected to focus on negotiating a deal rather than go to auction.”
There’s no such thing as being king for a day at the Crantzdorf Castle. Try king every day, instead. Modeled after Spain’s Palacio de la Magdalena in Santander, Cantabria Spain, which housed the royal family in the early 1900s, this exquisitely private and enchanting estate nestled on 12 acres in the foothills of East Tennessee pays meticulous attention to rich details and exceptional craftsmanship.
Classic English, French and Spanish styles seamlessly blend for a truly unmatched marriage of 20,000 square feet of both fairy tale and function. Nine bedroom suites, a masterfully designed full home theater, pub and billiards room and sitting rooms house intricate hand-selected detailing, from hand-carved pieces to hand-cast crown moldings, breathtaking stained glass windows and soaring cathedral ceilings. Pristine views of the Appalachian Ridge from the property’s private lake frontage or the impressive castle’s wraparound balconies are reminders that life in the castle is real and not just a dream. Located just 45 minutes to Banner Elk, North Carolina, the area’s mild weather and host of outdoor amenities grants year-round recreational bliss.
