FAYETTEVILLE, TN--(Marketwired - August 25, 2015) - J.P. King Auction Company announces Riverbend Farm properties to be auctioned Thursday, September 10, at 1:00 p.m. CT. Owned by Gary and Stephanie Sams, the 66 +/- acres that comprise the six tracts of Riverbend Farm are the Riverbend Event Center, the Riverbend Equestrian Center and Pavilion, the luxury estate home, and three residential tracts.

The rolling hills of Riverbend Farm are located minutes away from Huntsville, Alabama, and approximately an hour and half drive from Nashville, Tennessee. Deer and turkey, owls and eagles, and other wildlife populate the property located on the Elk River.

"It's exciting to look at the endless possibilities because there are so many things that can be done and developed on these beautiful sites," said Stephanie Sams.

Riverbend Event Center is a versatile property situated on more than six acres of rolling pasture with an approximate 14,000 square foot main area used in the past as a banquet hall with a capacity of 300 people. Opposite the banquet hall is an open stage with 238 theater seats. The property has hosted a number of weddings, corporate functions and artistic performances.

The catering kitchen offers stainless-steel appliances, a 5-Star gas stove, a commercial dishwasher, and brick floors. The upper level of the center includes an approximate 1,900 square foot stable master's quarters with two bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom, and a loft.

"The event center is absolutely gorgeous and wonderful for photography. There is nothing else quite like it in the U.S. We have hosted a number of weddings here. There is a lot of historic appeal with the stone barns, antique art, and clock tower. The stonework and stone barns are approximately 100 years old," said Stephanie Sams.

Riverbend Equestrian Center and Pavilion boasts two beautiful stone barns that span about 16,000 square feet under roof and contain 20 stalls, two tack rooms, and two wash bays. The approximate 40,000 square foot open-air pavilion with water and electricity offers ample room for expansion and events of any kind. The barn also contains a bedroom, 3/4 bath, and a kitchen. The approximate 21,000 square foot covered riding arena and additional barn complete this marvelous approximate 22 acre property.

"In our 20s, we always had a goal that we would love to live in this area. When I was transferred from Albuquerque, New Mexico, to Huntsville, Alabama, for work, we found the perfect place here at Riverbend Farm in Fayetteville. We procured this property in seven different pieces to put it together," explained Gary Sams.

The luxurious Riverbend Farm Estate Home is situated on approximately 19 acres. Upon entry through a set of massive golden gates, the sprawling column-fronted home stands majestically surrounded by pastures and farmland. Entering wooden double doors brings you into a gorgeous marble foyer with 20-foot ceilings and curved staircases on each side. The master suite, master bath, and two walk-in closets make up the right side of the home. The home contains five spacious bedrooms and five baths. The kitchen includes a large fireplace and eight-foot windows overlooking the saltwater pool and hot tub. This property also offers a wine cellar, three-car garage and guest house.

"Our grown up children are out of state. We love it here but it is truly time to downsize," said Stephanie Sams.

Three residential Riverbend Farm tracts are also offered individually, in any combination, or as an entirety. The tracts are on Herb Garden Drive in the premier Riverbend Farm Subdivision with tract 6 on 5.06+/- acres, tract 7 on 5.03+/- acres, and tract 8 on 8.49+/- acres.
