Grand Estates

Aiken, SC
SOLD – $2,500,000

The month of February is truly a celebratory time in the Winter Colony, the location of the historic home “The Balcony” in Aiken, SC. Equestrians arrive from all over the country to participate in the popular fox hunting events and other equestrian pursuits. Hunt clubs throughout Aiken were having their annual hunt parties and one hunter coming from the midwest had such a wonderful time in Aiken that she and her husband determinedly beat 12 other bidders for ownership of the historic home. They look forward to escaping the harsh winters of their native state and traveling south with their horses and other family pets.

Over 450 families inquired about the historic home built by Seymour Knox. The Knox family is known for the origination of the Woolworth stores, and being that the Knox’s loved all things equestrian, they made Aiken their winter residence. Grand Estates Auction Company® was proud to represent this home and during the presentation, over 250 families viewed the property and amenities on the 5.8 acres.

Stacy Kirk, President of Grand Estates, through her participation in one of the local foxhunts, forged a friendship with a woman and her husband whom she invited to preview the home. She is so glad she did, because they are now the proud new owners of “The Balcony.”
