A Contemporary Masterpiece: Westlake Village, California Dream Home Selling To Highest Bidder

Michael Chan-designed 'Vista Ridge' estate goes up for auction via Concierge Auctions

Nov 4, 2014

WESTLAKE, Calif., Nov. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- When renowned architect Michael C.F. Chan A.I.A. envisioned the floor plan of Vista Ridge, he was ahead of the trends; he saw the opportunity to design a space for art and music lovers, to create a gallery for the imagination.

"The site of this home is truly unique," recalls Chan. "It was an opportunity to design a residence that is technologically integrated throughout and responds to the hillside, golf course, and canyon." 

While many of the homes in Westlake Village reflect a typical Californian southwestern style, Vista Ridge stands out as a beacon of modernist design. The property, located in North Ranch Country Club, is a testament to the ferocious California spirit, which will most certainly command attention as it nears the auction block on December 9th.

The cutting edge of California design

Set on 1.76 acres, Vista Ridge was designed to push the expectations of artistic luxury. The rooms flow together with large walls reminiscent of a gallery space; there's a music conservatory, and an entertaining area that seamlessly blends from indoor to outdoor. The style and allure of the property is a clean, modernist approach that remains timeless.

"This is not your typical Ventura County home," stated the listing agent, Michelle Ouellette of Sotheby's International Realty. "The entrance features a grand rotunda; it feels like you're in an artistic cathedral. It's just beautiful. Indeed, every detail of the home comes together to create a contemporary masterpiece, unique from all the other, traditional homes in the area." 

A home for an art & wine lover

Vista Ridge has a computerized 1,200-bottle wine cellar along with tasting room. There's a 12-seat THX theater for private screenings­­­. And if a buyer's heart is driven by all things automotive, the 7-car garage provides plenty of room to display the hot rod collection.

California luxury property auction

Enter New York-based real estate auction firm Concierge Auctions. Homeowner Steve Nagelberg hired the firm to find the perfect buyer for his one-of-a-kind estate. Once offered for $14.5 Million, the property will be sold to the highest bidder during a live auction on December 9th.

Nagelberg is excited about the Concierge Auctions solution: "We've had some great years here, but it's time for us to downsize. Our kids are grown, and we want to let someone else enjoy the space."

Concierge Auctions knows California well. The company has successfully sold properties all over The Golden State. Recently, they closed on the $16 million sale of Amber Hills in Los Angeles, and last month successfully auctioned Anselmo Vineyards, north of Sacramento.

One of the premier neighborhoods in Westlake Village

Located in Westlake Village, which straddles the Los Angeles and Ventura county line, Vista Ridge is a short 24-minute ride to the beaches of Malibu. Local nightlife and fine dining flourish just miles from the property. Exclusive golf courses, and day spas are nearby, as well as some of the best scenery in California.
