Blackstream Christie's International Real Estate has listed a home that could bring the highest sale price in state history if a buyer ponies up for the $22 million asking price.
For that price you would expect some amenities and the Circle Creek Farm estate has them: a pool, equestrian center, two ponds, a pub, a vineyard … even a kangaroo, if the buyer wants it. The property is at 2975 Roper Mountain Road in Simpsonville.
The 54-acre property, listed by Damian Hall, is owned by Bob Castellani, founder of North American Rescue, and his wife, Kelly Castellani. North American Rescue sells equipment and products used in rescue situations with a customer base that ranges from fire and police departments to the military.
According to Hall, the priciest home sale so far in South Carolina was a $20.5 million deal near Charleston in 2021.
The main part of the home is a six-bedroom English manor-style home measuring approximately 15,000 square feet, according to a news release from Blackstream Christie's International Real Estate.
The residence was built from wood sourced from old barns including wood beams from Clifton Mill in Spartanburg, the news release said. “Trainloads of limestone and cobblestones were brought in. There are also materials from Central Park (in New York City), the Great Wall of China, and an old street in Pittsburgh, among other bespoke materials, resulting in a truly exceptional and unique property.”
There are 5,000 square feet of terraces and outdoor living spaces including the pool. The equestrian amenities include a 12-stall barn, offering a living room, tack room, full bath and a loft upstairs. Three arenas offer a warm-up ring, dressage and a covered 225-foot by 70-foot arena.
“Once again, Damian has brought a masterpiece to the global Christie’s market,” said Michael Mumma, CEO of Blackstream Christie's International Real Estate. “He consistently sources the finest real estate offerings and markets them in a manner that exceeds our client’s expectations.”
Hall said that the number of luxury sales in the area has slowed roughly 30% compared with last year, and homes in the $1 million to $2 million range have seen price reductions, but ultraluxury home prices have not fallen in the area.
