The head of a local auction house is putting his own home up for grabs to help launch, and promote, his company’s new high-end real estate division.

Mark Motley, president of Motley’s Asset Disposition Group, is offering his 7,000-square-foot house in western Henrico as the first listing for the division, called Masterpiece by Motleys.

The lakefront, French Tudor-style house at 11801 Oak Point Court, on a cul-de-sac in the Barrington West neighborhood, is being offered through an accelerated sale with an asking price of $1.1 million. Offers on the home, at $10,000 increments, will be accepted for one week starting Thursday.
