"My wife Lisa and I have bought a home at Quail Hollow and look forward to living there," Johnson told The Charlotte Observer on Friday. "We are planning to move sometime around mid-June."
Johnson lives in a mansion visible from U.S. 421 in the community of Hamptonville, not far from Interstate 77. The assessed tax value of his home and property is nearly $1.3 million, according to Yadkin County tax records.
Johnson scotched rumors that his farm and home had been bought by nearby Raffaldini winery.
"It's still for sale," he said.
