Heath Shuler's Mountain Estate to Auction

J.P. King Auction Company to Sell Former NFL Quarterback and U.S. Representative's Luxury Estate in Picturesque Waynesville, NC

WAYNESVILLE, NC--(Marketwired - June 04, 2015) - J.P. King Auction Company announces Heath Shuler's Mountain Estate to be auctioned Thursday, June 25, at 11:00 a.m. EST. Owned by Heath and Nikol Shuler, Heath Shuler is a former NFL quarterback, Heisman Trophy runner-up as quarterback for the University of Tennessee, and three-term U.S. Representative for North Carolina's 11thcongressional district. Shuler is currently Senior Vice President for Duke Energy, headquartered in Charlotte, NC.

Enter the picturesque 11 acre estate through the security gate and cross Plott Creek, a natural trout creek bordered with willow trees. Situation directly in front of a fully stocked trout pond, the 7,230 square foot home with five (5) bedrooms, five (5) full and four (4) half baths was developed by Shuler in 2006.

Located in Plott Valley, the estate is minutes from downtown Waynesville just outside the Pisgah National Forest and about 30 minutes southwest of Asheville, between the Great Smoky Mountains and Blue Ridge Mountains.

"Having worked as a home developer, when we saw this Plott Valley property with the trout stream running through it and then added a beautiful trout pond, we created a resort-like setting for a family home. The uniqueness of the property, the 3,000 foot elevation providing cool summer temperatures, the general openness of the property and the house, we feel is a one of its kind in the region, while providing easy access to metropolitan Atlanta and Charlotte. We particularly enjoyed the climate of four seasons and the energizing outdoor experiences of sledding in the backyard in the winter and fishing the lakes and streams spring through fall," said Heath Shuler.

The main floor of the home provides a spacious, open floor plan for ease when entertaining, plus a two-story stone fireplace in the sitting room and a gourmet kitchen with a stainless steel Wolf gas range and Subzero refrigerator. The house also includes a home theater, a recreation room and a gym. The backyard boasts a private, heated pool with a cabana. A 2,400 square foot barn may serve various purposes such as for a garage, stables, kennel, or a workshop.

"I chose to place this unique property up for auction because, in my prior career running a real estate company, I know the positive outcomes that an auction can provide for both the buyer and the seller. The auction method provides a smart way for both the seller and the buyer to find the right market for a high end home," said Shuler.

J.P. King Auction Company is conducting the auction. Property tours are available beginning June 16, through auction day. To schedule a personal tour of the property, call the Auction Information Center at 800-558-5464. Also, for additional information on Heath Shuler's Mountain Estate, visit the J.P.
