PITTSBURG, Texas – (Realty News Report) – A mansion that was custom-built for Lonnie Alfred “Bo” Pilgrim, founder of Pilgrim’s Pride, one of the largest chicken producers in the nation, is for sale.
An 18,000-SF home in the East Texas community of Pittsburg, which is about 100 miles east of Dallas, will be sold in auction next month via Concierge Auctions.
The sale is being conducted in conjunction with Kyle Crews and Sanders Avrea of Allie Beth Allman & Associates and Clayton Pilgrim of Century 21 Farm and Ranch.
The home, 800 South Greer Boulevard will auction without reserve to the highest bidder. Bidding will be held October 15–18 via Concierge Auctions’ online marketplace, ConciergeAuctions.com.
“This estate was custom-built to my father’s exact specifications with superior materials and craftsmanship, and our family has enjoyed it for many years. When we decided it was time to sell, we wanted the same level of standards. We knew working with Concierge Auctions would allow our family the ability to set our date of sale and deliver a result which enables us to move on to the next phase in our lives,” said seller Ken Pilgrim.
The multi-generational estate has the potential for use as a wellness or rehabilitation center, with over 18,000 square feet of living space, six bedrooms, and 10 full and one-half bathrooms. Ornate in design and stature, architectural features include a glass elevator overlooking spacious grounds, European-made gas fireplaces, French front doors, and aged and antiqued Red Oak wood floors.
The house was designed by architect Richard Drummond Davis.
The property also boasts a large indoor pool with wet and dry sauna, as well as a spa, modeled after the Greenbrier Resort with European details.
Situated on 43 acres of impeccably manicured grounds designed by landscape architect Naud Burnett, the property boasts multiple native species of trees, three ponds and streams, a deep water well with crisp fresh water, and a plethora of strikingly beautiful Azalea gardens. The grounds also feature a greenhouse and three outbuilding shops.
“I’ve partnered with Concierge Auctions nearly 15 times because I know their platform is the BEST way to attract the global attention necessary to sell a unique property of this caliber in an expedited time-frame—which is why I recommended my clients go straight to auction,” said listing agent Kyle Crews of Allie Beth Allman. “With motivated sellers ready to let the market dictate the final sale price and multiple bidders competing to win, it’s a win-win for clients on both sides of the deal.”
