A Lewisville woman who has deep roots in the North Carolina Christmas tree industry was the winning bidder for Junior Johnson’s mansion and farm situated just north of the Iredell County line.

Loretta Sides Shore, who owns Shore’s Nursery, said Monday that she was the buyer of the house and 150-acre farm at the Aug. 7 auction.

The identity of the buyer had been kept confidential. The winning bid was $2.3 million and the sale is scheduled to close this week.

Shore’s Nursery grows Fraser firs on more than a dozen farms it owns or leases in the Laurel Springs and Sparta areas of Alleghany County.
