This country singers dream home will be auctioned on July 9, including many furnishings that were passed on by Rogers.
Kenny Rogers, one of the best-selling country musicians of all time, moved into his dream home in the 1980s after establishing his career. Beaver Dam Farms was built and designed by Rogers, and includes a golf course and plenty of space for entertainment and recreation for family and friends. The 973-acre grounds offers three private lakes, a 12,000-square-foot home, five guesthouses and a lake clubhouse.
An 18-hole championship-rated golf course sits atop the grounds, featuring its own sprinkler system. A roofed equestrian and multipurpose arena covers two acres, with 44 stalls, two pools and two tennis courts. Other details include streams with waterfalls, woodland trails for walking or riding, gardens, a fishing lake, two gyms, a movie theater, billiards room, conference center and a total of 20 bedrooms throughout the property.
In 2003, Rogers sold the property to Weston Adams who was also the owner of a guest ranch and sportsman’s lodge in Colorado. The Adams family used it as a private home in the first years and then turned it into a resort with full accommodations, spa services and event rentals. When Adams died in 2011, the family moved to the West Coast and felt it was time to sell. Close to his heart, Kenny Rogers is taking an active part in helping to promote the Beaver Dam Farms auction. With a replacement value of between $30 million to $40 million, the auction will be held on July 9th. Previously listed at $20 million, the owner has agreed to sell to the highest bidder at or above $3.5 million with all furnishings included, many of which were those passed on by Rogers.
