After Vick vacated the place, the house and property were assessed for tax purposes at $747,000 and sold to Todd Builders Inc. of Carrollton, Virginia, for $450,000. They'll be auctioning it off on Dec. 15.
Now, being the scrupulous buyer that you are, I'm sure you want to know what you're getting - aside from a dogfighting compound, of course. Well, the home is 4,608-square feet with five bedrooms and 4 1/2 bathrooms. And it has a fireplace - which I assume is to make fires or burn evidence.
Kyle Hause Jr., a real estate agent in Newport News who's doing the auction, is of course refraining from hyping up the house and its infamous past.
"Only one person can own the most famous house in America today," Hause said. "You can ask people from coast to coast which house has the most notoriety in the country today, and it's this house."Wait, did I say he's "refraining from hyping up the house?" My mistake. I confused a real estate agent with an actual human being. Maybe they'll even throw in a free dog carcass if you buy it. And if you want to check out the backyard, just look below. The black sheds in the white circle are where - as they say - "the magic happens."
