Park City, Utah — July 27, 2016
212 White Pine Canyon Road

Located within the highly-coveted and gated Colony at White Pine Canyon in Park City, 212 White Pine Canyon Road is a brand new, modern-day castle set directly on the ski slopes of the world-class Park City Mountain Resort. A true architectural masterpiece, the property — built over seven years from massive granite stone — offers premier privacy among wooded acreage and a smartly-designed layout that takes full advantage of the natural terrain. A true work of art, craftsman touches are inherent throughout the property including vaulted cathedral ceilings, ornate woodwork and fine leaded glass.

Never before offered for sale, Concierge Auctions will sell the property without reserve on July 27 in cooperation with Paul Benson of Engel & Volkers.

"On top of being a castle, which is special in its own right, this property is truly one of the best ski in/ski out properties in all of Park City," said Benson, who has worked with Concierge Auctions on multiple auctions in the area. "Approximately seven years of work went into creating this masterpiece, which feels classic European yet offers today's high-tech amenities. It is one of the most unique properties I've ever seen, and we're thrilled that buyers globally will have the opportunity to see for themselves."

Now North America's largest ski resort town, Park City offers year-round outdoor recreation including 7,300 acres of skiable terrain. Home to the famous Sundance Film Festival, Park City enjoys endless miles of pine and aspen trees and mountain landscapes.

Big Sky, Montana — August 1, 2016
Freedom Pass

Totaling 260 pristine acres near the renowned Big Sky Resort and the exclusive Yellowstone Club, Freedom Pass features multiple home sites that uniquely cross both unrestricted land and a prestigious master planned community by way of an expansive ridge. Currently divided into a dozen lots of 20 acres each — seven within the Big EZ Estates — Big Sky's Freedom Pass enjoys unparalleled privacy, conservation easements opportunity and a vast sense of space as the property is adjacent to breathtaking Gallatin National Forest.

Never before offered for sale, Freedom Pass will sell at auction without reserve on August 1 in cooperation with Martha Johnson of Montana Living - Big Sky Real Estate. This is Concierge Auctions' second auction on behalf of the seller and its fifth alongside Johnson. In 2013, the trio partnered to sell The Big EZ Lodge, a private, 60-acre retreat, also in Big Sky.

"This is a rare opportunity to own 260 acres in the heart of the Yellowstone ecosystem," Johnson stated. "Adjacent to the National Forest, this property has the flexibility to put up to 12 homesites into a conservation easement, have a generational family compound, a big game hunting retreat or develop and sell homesites."  

Located only minutes by private road from the town of Big Sky, Freedom Pass is in the ideal location to enjoy the unmatched outdoor recreation for which the area is known. Throughout the year, an abundance of outdoor recreation awaits — hunting, skiing, snowmobiling, hiking and more.

Built by iconic Architect C.W. Dickey with the use of exotic woods and local lava rocks, Olu Pua Gardens has a rich history dating back to the 1930s as a haven for WWII dignitaries and home to the A&B Kauai Pineapple Company.

Previously listed for $6.5 million, the property will sell without reserve on August 2 in cooperation with Martie Law of Oceanfront Sotheby's International Realty.

"This property presents a unique opportunity for someone to not only own a piece of Hawaiian plantation history, but also highly coveted C.W. Dickey homes on grounds that will amaze," Law said. "With edible fruit trees, rare plants, quaint gardens, a pond, swimming pool and acres of tropical enjoyment, the property just keeps giving."

Offering the natural beauty of Kauai's south coast, Kalaheo — or "the proud day" in Hawaiian — is an unincorporated area of Kauai County. Home to the National Tropical Botanical Garden, the area has renowned shopping, dining, golf, hiking, botanic delights, spectacular beaches and leisure activities.

Rancho Santa Fe, California — August 11, 2016

Upon entering the gate, guests are immediately welcomed by a horse pasture and vineyard. Indoors, fully-retractable doors invite the outdoors in and lead to a five-star resort pool and entertaining spaces with panoramic views stretching to the ocean.
