The Dallas Morning News reports that an 18,243-square-foot French Baroque chateau set on 43 acres in East Texas was sold at auction by Concierge Auctions in October. Bidding on the Pilgrim estate “topped $3 million.” Designed by architect Richard Drummond Davis after West Virginia’s Greenbrier Resort, the 6-bedroom, 10.5-bathroom residence was originally built for the founder of Pilgrim’s Pride poultry products, Lonnie “Bo” Pilgrim (1928–2017) and his wife, Patty. According to the auctioneer, “The impeccably manicured grounds designed by landscape architect Naud Burnett consist of 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.” Located approximately 120 miles east of Dallas in Pittsburg, the residence sits five minutes from a local airport where the Pilgrim family hangared a King Air 350. Commute time to Dallas was less than 30 minutes.
