Kenny Rogers Avoids Auction, Sells Ga. Home
JEFFERSON, Ga. (AP) -- The northeast Georgia home owned by country singer Kenny Rogers that was scheduled to be put up for auction has been sold.
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.
