Murdaugh Family Estate Auction Set for $1,100,000 as Scandalous History Looms

HAMPTON COUNTY, S.C. (AP) — The South Carolina estate once occupied by the infamous Murdaugh family is set to go up for auction, beginning at a starting bid of $1,100,000.

The 21-acre Moselle Estate, which will be auctioned by J.P. King, features a spacious four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bath home with over 5,000 square feet. The property boasts front and back porches, a family room, balcony, dining room, and a kitchen equipped with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops.

Despite the estate’s dark past, including the murders of Maggie and Paul Murdaugh and the death of their former housekeeper Gloria Satterfield, the auction listing focuses on the property’s amenities and tailor-made features.

The estate was initially sold for $3.9 million in 2023 but is now listed for sale again at $1.95 million. Prospective buyers are required to be pre-approved and can only view the home by appointment.

Alex Murdaugh, the family member convicted of the aforementioned murders and financial crimes, is currently serving a life sentence but is appealing his conviction. He has also pleaded guilty to numerous financial crimes.

In short, the Moselle Estate in South Carolina, a once-tranquil property, is up for auction once again, with a dark history overshadowing its current marketing efforts.
