GULF SHORES, Alabama — A roughly 12,000-square-foot waterfront mansion — one of Baldwin County’s most expensive homes — is going up for auction Thursday.
In 2011, the 10-bedroom home with three kitchens, seven full bathrooms and two half baths was featured by the Press-Register/AL.com as being among the top five most pricey homes in Baldwin.
The two-story, gated estate is situated on more than one acre overlooking Little Lagoon.
The most recent Baldwin County property tax valuation has the property and home, built in 2005, pegged at $2.2 million. At the time of the 2011 article, it was for sale with a listing price of $2.9 million. The property is now going to be live auctioned to the highest bidder by Gadsden-based National Auction Group.
The auction will take place on site Thursday at the mansion at 14964 Ala. 180 (Fort Morgan Road) in Gulf Shores. Registration starts at 10 a.m. and the auction will begin at 11.
An announcement for the auction described the property as having “all of the luxuries you expect from a five-star resort. Complete with white sandy beach, 450-foot pier with boat house, boat lift and float on Jet Ski dock, screened pool and spa, ornate trim and details throughout as well as a state-of-the-art whole house system, which allows control of everything from the coffee maker to the window coverings.”
