    Grand Estates Auction Co. in Charlotte, N.C., says Rogers sold the house and its 150 acres Tuesday for $2.25 million.

    The property is located near Nicholson, Ga., and includes a 5,681-square-foot house, a 2,675-square-foot pool, an 8-acre lake, horse riding trails, a go-cart track and other amenities.

    The Athens Banner-Herald reports the auction was called off suddenly Tuesday afternoon after attracting nearly a dozen potential buyers. Soon after the auction was scheduled to take place, organizers announced Rogers had taken the property off the market.
