WINTERGREEN, Va. (AP) - Coal and property baron Jim Justice has sold the Wintergreen Resort in Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains.

Media reports say Justice sold the Nelson County resort to EPR properties, a real estate investment trust based in Kansas City, Missouri.

EPR Properties and Justice did not immediately comment Thursday on the sale.

Justice owns The Greenbrier resort in West Virginia. He purchased Wintergreen in June 2012 for $16.5 million.

But Justice told The Associated Press one year ago he was interested in selling Wintergreen.

Shortly after purchasing Wintergreen, Justice invested nearly $12 million to make improvements over the next 16 months.
