PITTSBURG, Texas — An approximate 18,000-square-foot East Texas estate of late-Pilgrim's Pride founder Bo Pilgrim will hit the auction block on October 15.

The 43-acre estate designed by architect Richard Drummond Davis as a French Renaissance "dream home" is situated just south of Pittsburg, Texas, and features six bedrooms, 10-full bathrooms, and one-half bathroom.

According to Concierge Auctions, which is auctioning the property, the property has over $15 million invested in the property, which has never been listed. The property will go to the highest bidder, without reserve, with bidding held at www.ConciergeAuctions.com between October 15-18, 2019.

"This estate was custom-built to my father's exact specifications with superior materials and craftsmanship, and our family has enjoyed it for many years," stated Bo Pilgrim's son, Ken Pilgrim.

Bo Pilgrim died in July 2017 at the age of 89 — having sold Pilgrim's Pride to Brazilian-based JBS in 2009.

"Breathtakingly ornate in design and stature, architectural features include a glass elevator overlooking spacious grounds, European-made gas fireplaces, French front doors, and aged and antiqued Red Oak wood floors," according to a statement from the auction house. "The property also boasts a large indoor pool with wet and dry sauna, as well as a spa, modeled after the Greenbrier Resort with European details."

"Situated on 43 acres of impeccably manicured grounds designed by landscape architect Naud Burnett, the property boasts multiple native species of trees, three ponds and streams, a deep water well with crisp fresh water, and a plethora of strikingly beautiful Azalea gardens," continued the statement.

The property is located at 800 South Greer Boulevard in Pittsburg, Texas — minutes from historic downtown Pittsburg, 10 minutes from Mt Pleasant Regional Airport, 10 minutes from Lake Bob Sandlin and Lake O' The Pines, and two hours from Dallas.
