Asherwood Live Auction

PLEASE NOTE: THIS WEEKEND'S LIVE AUCTION IS AT THE TARKINGTON THEATER AT THE CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS!

Guernsey's Auction House will conduct a monumental, unreserved auction of the contents of the magnificent Asherwood Estate, one of America's most prominent homes, on November 17 and 18, 2018 in Carmel, Indiana. Situated on 107-acres, the 50,000-square-foot mansion, massive second home, and private golf clubhouse was generously donated to the Great American Songbook Foundation by Bren Simon, wife of the late respected commercial real estate developer Melvin Simon.  

 

The auction promises hundreds of ornate examples of antique and bespoke 20th-century furniture, furnishings and decor, substantial works of art, Oriental rugs and countless smaller objects, virtually all in pristine condition.  In addition to these approximately 1,000 lots being sold, a separate section of the event will be devoted to selling a substantial portion of Asherwood's vast library of antique books. 

 

Public previews will take place November 10,11 and 16 from 10 am to 6 pm at Asherwood Estate, before the Live Auction on November 17 & 18, which will be off-site at the Center for the Performing Arts' Tarkington theater.  The cost to attend any of the preview dates or the Live Auction is $25 per person.  Click below to learn more. 

 

The Public Previews will be the only opportunity to inspect the items up for sale in person, and tour Asherwood Estate.  

 

 

Absentee bidding will be available via LiveAuctioneers.comInvaluable.com and Proxibid.com.  

 

Auction proceeds will benefit the Great American Songbook Foundation.
