Concierge Auctions to sell Santosha Estate, Anguilla

"From North America to Europe, our spring lineup curates every angle of an exemplary lifestyle," said Laura Brady, president and founder of Concierge Auctions. "Our team is skilled at pairing unique real estate with qualified buyers and facilitating easy, market-driven transactions. With more than a dozen of the world's most elite properties available for bidding next month — the majority of which will sell without reserve — the chance to own one's dream home is now."

Las Vegas/Henderson, Nevada — April 30, 2016
1611 Milano Villa Avenue
Nestled along mountain ranges within the gated Terracina Estates, the most affluent development in the prestigious Seven Hills community, 1611 Milano Villa Avenue includes a spacious main residence and two guest homes. Currently owned by sports betting icon Bill Walters, its stunning architecture and design — including massive windows and ultimate outdoor entertaining areas — grant panoramic views of Las Vegas's city lights and the acclaimed Rio Secco Golf Course, where Tiger Woods holds the record score. Previously offered for $4.9 million, the property will sell without reserve in cooperation with Donna Ruthe of Today's Realty, Inc.

"Located within the prestigious Seven Hills gated community, this affluent estate has it all," Ruthe stated. "Its modern architecture, high-end finishes and open outdoor spaces come together to create an incomparable desert home, not to be outdone by its panoramic, unobstructed views of the downtown lights of Las Vegas."

This is the third time Walters has teamed with Concierge Auctions. In 2014, he sold his 9-acre estate in Rancho Santa Fe, CA alongside Concierge for $14.3 million, and just last week Walters placed another California property under contract with the firm.

"The Concierge Auctions platform has proved effective for me in the past, so what better place to team up again than in Las Vegas?" Walters stated. "The transparent process is proven to attract buyers globally, many of whom would never know certain properties are for sale without the Concierge network."

Anguilla, British West Indies — May 19, 2016
Santosha Estate — West End Block, 811B, Parcels 208 and 237
Elegant island escape meets impeccable design at Santosha Estate, ideally situated on Anguilla's secluded Long Bay Beach upon three acres of rare beachfront property. One of the largest and most private estates on the island, Santosha Estate offers spacious rooms and amenities, wraparound porches, an infinity pool with ocean views, on-site staff, gym and outdoor Jacuzzi. Built to entertain with large open spaces, the 37,000-square-foot-plus estate offers seven en-suite bedrooms spaciously divided between the main home, and two guest cottages. Previously offered for $15 million, the property will sell without reserve in cooperation with Steve and Debbie Haines of Trophy Properties Ltd.

"One of the largest and most private estates on the island, Santosha simply put is paradise," Debbie Haines stated. "Not a detail was missed in the construction of this estate, which seamlessly marries indoor and outdoor living, embracing ocean views from every room. Perched upon an expansive and secluded piece of beachfront property, the auction presents a rare opportunity to own a tropical oasis at one's own bid price."

Anguilla is comprised of 33 white sand beaches offering snorkeling, fishing, horseback riding, world-renowned cuisine and relaxing spa selections, just a short ferry ride from St. Martin and St. Barts.

Santa Barbara, CAMay 21, 2016
Deer Lodge — 6284 San Marcos Pass Road
Conveniently located between beautiful Santa Barbara on the Pacific and the Santa Ynez wine country, Deer Lodge is a historic family compound like no other. Originally purchased in 1893 and comprised of approximately 187 acres of oak woodlands, the property has an impressive pedigree of ownership, including an early Ford Motor investor, the John Deere family (which owned the estate for seven decades), award-winning comedienne and actress Whoopi Goldberg, and the current owner, retired Chairman and CEO of the Raytheon Company. The massive estate boasts 13 structures, including the fully updated original house, which is thought to have been a hunting lodge. Previously offered for $14 million, Deer Lodge will sell without reserve in cooperation with Mike and Micah Brady of Santa Ynez Land Sotheby's International Realty.

"Deer Lodge has something for everyone, every age, with acres of quiet space and wonderful family gathering spots," the seller stated. "My family is still furious at my wife and me for our decision to sell Deer Lodge, our family retreat for nearly 20 years. But if we are to do this, we will do it right, and I am convinced auctioning is the right way to deliver value for unique properties. We selected Concierge Auctions because we know they will generate interest from qualified prospects around the world."

In addition to the woodlands, the sandstone boulder formations and the 300-vine vineyard of Syrah and Grenache grapes, the recreational opportunities at Deer Lodge are endless.  You may choose to swim in the pool, relax in the spa, read by the indoor or outdoor fireplaces, gather in the game room, play bocce, ride the zip line, climb on the tree house or play fort, compete in a basketball game, sip wine at the remote picnic site, hike or ride the trails, gather for family meals indoors or BBQ on the deck.

"Deer Lodge has all the elements of a first class retreat. It is a private, spectacular setting with vistas in one of the most beautiful places in the world," said Mike Brady, who has been an agent in the Santa Barbara area for more than 35 years. "Fine dining and upscale shopping can be enjoyed nearby, both close to the beaches and in the quaint towns of the internationally renowned Santa Ynez Valley wine region. This auction represents a once-in-a-lifetime chance to purchase the best of the best California lifestyle."
