BEST HOUSE FOR SALE: A BEECHAM HOUSE FORSALE
(Photo: USA Today)The house is for sale at an auction, with the asking price $4.8 million, according to real estate records.
The property, in a rural area about 40 miles southeast of Atlanta, is the latest in a string of beechwood-clad homes that have gone for sale.
A similar listing was made by a local real estate agent for $3.8 billion.
In April, the Associated Press reported on a $1.9 billion home in the Atlanta suburbs that was being sold for $2.2 million, though the house’s seller did not return calls.
A spokeswoman for the state Department of Agriculture said the sale is being held because the buyer is a member of a group that has been approved to participate in the program.
The seller is listed as “a member of the group” and does not have to be an existing member of that group.
It is not clear whether the seller is in the group that receives the federal government’s assistance in rebuilding after a tornado hit the area in 2011.
