Do you remember Morgan’s home from Teen Cribs? Well, the $20 million home, dubbed Kent Rock Manor, is now being rented out as an event venue. The home, which is located in Loganville, GA, is being used for weddings, receptions, rehearsal dinners,  and corporate events. The upper and lower levels of the home can be rented out for $7,500. I was expecting the home to go on the market (like all the other Teen Cribs), not turn into a place to rent out for lavish events. Do you guys think they will be successful?

    I would be surprised if it’s successful over the long term. Maybe they haven’t put it up for sale because the housing market continues to be plagued with foreclosures and numerous short sales that that have hurt normal home sales. I would guess if they are in need of immediate steady funds, they saw this as their best option.

    I think this is the most sustainable option …more sustainable than unsuccessfully trying to sell it. $7.5k is not a huge price for a corporate venue and it kind of has that feel about it.

    This would be one way to use the house to bring in a little income, but if the owners need of cash I’m not sure it’s a great option. Renting it out for events will help offset the costs of owning the place, but it will never cover them completely, or give them a profit. How many events will have to be staged in order to simply break even on the maintenance costs, mortgage (if there is one), utilities, etc?

      You’re exactly right, Grrrowler. If I had ANY bettin’ money, I know I wouldn’t lose it, and would win more, by saying that they’ve tried for a good, long while now to sell the place, and are actually gettin’ desperate.

      Kenny mentions that when this place was featured on MTV Cribs, it was listed for 20 mil……HA HA HA HA HA!! That price HAD to be from years ago, ’cause Loganville is HOURS away from Atlanta, and the chances of selling any multi-million dollar home in the middle of nowhere these days is STILL sickeningly close to zero. Remember that all the news you’ve heard about the housing market picking up in the past six/nine months or so, concerns ONLY homes that are/were priced in the 2 to 250,000 dollar price range, across the country, generally.

        It was never for sale, it’s just “valued” at $20 million. (I guess the owner valued it himself lol)

        You are correct, Barney.

        In fact, one of the oddities of this house is that it has been built next to 2000 to 3000 square foot vinyl sided homes that create another aversion to a potential sale in the future. This home is TRULY in white trashville.

        Know much about the “owner”… this property was built in stages with the barn/basketball court area first, the baseball field area next, the zoo property added on (that piece was taken back by the new bank quite some time ago… MTV got “punked” on this property in more ways than one)… and not one piece was built without borrowed funds. Total owesies stand at over $6,000,000… I’m not sure anybody in their right mind would ever spend half that for purchase… UNLESS they could move the home to another location.

        The bank that was providing the bogus appraisals throughout the years (at one point, justification may have been made for close to $20 mil overall to keep the bad loans flowing from one stage to the next) went under, and was siezed by Feds 18 months or so ago.

        This guy owes everybody, including the IRS for millions.

    To be honest the house and its setting is gorgeous and if I was getting married, the price is not that bad.
    I think they will be pretty successful using this option.

    This may be the best way to cover the cost of the home until the market improves and maybe they can sell it later.

    As to everyhouse that Teen Cribs shows being for sell – here is what happen. Late one night when everyone was sleeping, Remax took over MTV as part of their master plan to sell every home in America

    Yeh its a viable option. At least they get some income while the home lingers on the market. Also, on a different note, I have now overtaken Mike F and am in 4th place in the comments section! Wooo

    It’s not a bad home, but i wouldn’t choose to get married here. My wife and I got married at the Biltmore, and it was beautiful. I guess when comparing this house to the Biltmore, there is really no contest.

  • Chrissy AKA Sister of Owner

    I find it amusing to find this article and see all the different opinions. this is my sisters house. Morgan is my niece. NO, this house isnt for sale and NEVER was. They do alot for the community. They are NOT desperate for money. They open things up like this to stay active in the community. Most of the people who come to these events are friends of the family or live near Kent Rock Manor. This house will NEVER go up for sale. My sister has worked very hard to provide a great life for her family. She is great with the community and donates alot of her time helping others. As far as them being successful? They are already very successful and DO NOT even need the money they make from these services. They use the money taken in for the community charity events and for their children. And by the way, this house has NO mortgage, my sister and her husband built this house. He owns the construction company that helped. My sister and her husband designed and built this home themselves. As far as all the NEGATIVE comments, let me ask you this? What do you live in? My sisters house is very gorgeous and for you to get on here and talk trash about it is just plain out jealousy!

    Regardless of what Rena’s sister, and Morgan’s niece might have been spoonfed by some very sick people… this family is destitute, figuratively, and literally.

    That construction company is bankrupt, the mortgage on that house is well north of $30,000 per month (and no payment has been made in well over a year), and the ’34 Ford in the “Car of the Month” room was rented for the MTV shoot, and damaged while being returned to the real owner. Guess who has “no dough” to make payment to the owner of that car?

    There are no other cars… that room may as well have a late model Corolla in there.

    This house may never come out from being underwater, for many of the reasons pointed out by others here. It’s situated next to a dump in one of the worst areas in North Georgia. The WORST schools in the area, no restaurants, half the town of Loganville walking around with no teeth thanks to the “crack” epidemic in this hick hideaway a good hour and fifteen minutes from civilization in Atlanta. Anybody with the wherewithal to purchase a home like that will RUN from that area as it is nothing but trouble, with NOTHING available to sustain that type of lifestyle.

    A horrible decision made by a very stoned family. And the bank that made the endless loans on the monstrosity was no smarter… it was siezed by the feds late in 2008.

    Sheer stupidity. This property may NEVER be worth what has been put into it.

        lol@ Scott. I’m a successful author & film maker who has traveled the world. I’ve also been thru quite a number of homes in my life, from LA to NY and now ATL. Kent Rock is an awesome spread. Sure there are other lavish homes in the world. But this one is just as unique, built with an integrity and mastery that I have seen over and again. Everyone sees that you are a moron. And I see you over and over again in other industries. They call you “hater.” And people like you fuel success. So, on behalf of that great man/owner who you obviously look up to and admire to take so much time to keep filling this thread with misinformation, THANK YOU! lol I can’t wait to shoot the films there and I can’t wait to introduce some of my friends in entertainment to the same.

    Wow, someone has no clue Scott. True it is not directly in the rats nest infested Atlanta 10 county trash area, but it is far from the area you think you are in. It is not far from Atlanta. It is in both Gwinnett AND Walton county. I work in downtown Atlanta on West Peachtree St and get there in 50 minutes in the morning you dumbass. Still never met anyone on crack, only families trying to get out of the hole of the “civilized” areas you love you urban whore. Most people here graduated from here or moved here from up nprth somewhere. Others all moved from Gwinnett when the mexicans tagged the tennis courts and pools and the writing was on the wall, literally. And… you are mixing up your trash talk. This is suppose to be “hicksville” according to you but you talk about crack. I have heard of the meth problem in country areas and crack in the whore filled streets you seem to love. Get it straight.

    About the property, everyone here knows they had to move and the house was lost. Should it have been built in the area it is in, NO. Nobody builds a house like that in an area of normal 200k – 300k homes and expects anything but a loss later. It was built to say “look at me”! Now look. The kids always went to public schools and still do even though a much better private school is around the corner from their old house (this one).

    Now turn it into a country club/spa/community something or other and move on. This is not a dump and just because they built a “20 mil” house near one (every county has a dump somewhere), it is personal stupidity, not the county being a dump. It is directly between Gwinnett, Athens and Covington, not in the middle of nowhwetre. If you are so disgusted by it, why are you so interested in it? Ignorant Dumbass!

    I Know the Owners of this property and have at one time had the honor being in the family. Now I am fortunate enough be a close friend and an ex-husband to the owners sister. So I feel very qualified to make these next statements of fact.
    ALL OF YOU HATERS OUT THERE CAN GO TO HELL. These folks are the kindest most compassionate people i have ever known, I was very sick last year and they took me in and helped get back on feet, my heart stopped 5 times.They let me recouperate and get strong never once were they anything but kind and loving, They didnt owe me anything and yet they were so good to me. i will be forever grateful to them. The house and grounds are beyond beautiful. There are many very expensive homes mixed in with
    300-400k homes within 2 miles of the residence. There is a landfill about 1 mile away but it is for tree stumps and busted up concrete and such. there is no garbage dump,
    REMBER THIS! NOT MATTER HOW BEAUTIFUL THE PROPERTY IS, IT PALES IN COMPARISON TO PEOPLE THAT LIVE THERE. If you can speak well of somebody…do us all a favor and DONT SPEAK AT ALL!

    Nicely said Pete. I am Chrissy, Renas sister and you are Tommys brother-n-law, correct? Anyway, someone said on here that the home was lost and they had to move and that was so totally wrong. They still live there and are doing great. My son is staying with them for awhile until he graduates. All the children do not attend public school and there is nothing wrong with it anyway as long as they
    are getting a good education. I just cannot believe how many people around here are so jealous of other peoples success.

    This place is friggin AWESOME, and there are a lot of false statements included. The home, i mean estate, is not for sale, Yes they do still Live there, and it was actually built with this purpose in mind. This is not a venue of someone needing EXTRA money to try to break even. I am an event planner and currently in the process of getting my client to contract this place for her wedding. Also, Loganville is LESS than an hour from Atlanta. I KNOW they will be extremely successful in this venture because it has sooo much potential to offer an extremely unique experience for every client. I am looking forward to it because the sounds of the waterfall, the peaceful views of the lake, the veraltility of every square foot of space and land is an event designers dream canvass, and does not require a lot of staging. In closing, Kent Rock Manor, is a true essence of a business man who made a great investment and has a great team, just incase someone thought the family is responsible for giving tours and setting up events. Research to avoid looking silly by making erroneous comments.

    I have had a personal connection to this family for several years. I know that they still own and reside on this property.
    The unfortunate circumstances were not of their making, you must not have been affected by the world economy, lucky you!
    It is simply an example of someone with the business sense to “Take life’s lemons and make lemonade”.
    This is a wonderful family and I am impressed with their ability to prove everyone wrong. Even when there were times that this property was listed as a foreclosure in the local paper, they held strong and fought to keep this place.
    I hope they continue to succeed and remain in this place until it is their choice to leave. God Bless!!!
    As to the baffoon that claims to know the area and its evils. Loganville is less than an hour from downtown Atlanta. I chose this area over the world renowned schools of Gwinnett Co. Ga. and I attended college, have all of my “own” teeth and would not know what crack looks like. You must speak from experience.

    My Child played baseball for Tommy in past almost 12 yrs ago to be a fact . The whole family are the warmest kindest people you ll ever want to meet. They never meet a stranger and open their hearts and arms to you . Loganville is not a white trash area , there is a crack epidemic world wide we all have ass cracks you dum ass . You seem to be pretty crack educated you were probally smoking you a rock as you wrote lies about Our awesome town Loganville Ga . Maybe crack ass you should try getting out of the slums of your city and seeing some nice green grass , streams, lakes, ponds see what clean air is like . Before you go judging go look in the mirror at yourself I bet it would scare you shitless !!!! For your information crack ass I have all my teeth as well most people In Loganville Ga I know do.

    Who in the hell is this Scott fellow and where did he come from. Evidently not from Loganville. I live in Gwinnett County and know Loganville as a wonderful, progressive city. No restaurants? In the middle of nowhere? Half the town walking around without teeth? Whose he kidding and who stuck a corncob up his ass concerning Loganville. My question is how does this crackpot know soooo much about this family’s finances? Scott, you are just jealous of people who have the talent to create beautiful things and make money. Be ashamed of yourself and go away.

    I visited this home on Saturday. Beautiful doesn’t even begin to describe it. i was facinated by this home and being the ever so curious person that I am, I just had to do some background checking on the homeowners. This man has done more for his community than most will ever do in a lifetime. He has built dream homes for so many others,and finally he gets to build his own. Nothing that happened in the housing market downfall is the fault of any builder or contractor. I am personally heartbroken that he and his family even have to consider renting this incredible place out for events, but at the same time, to see the faces of the brides on their wedding day, and the part he is playing in making their dreams come true, shows just what kind of man he really is. I don’t have to justify the goodness he has done. And nothing that these negative comments have said, carries any weight. And business is very good, as they are booked through 2014 and beyond.

I dont know their financial situation…it’s none of my business, nor anyone elses…but I pray that things are going well for the entire family. And I’m with Kathy..Scott you need a life, GO AWAY!
