Concierge Auctions' September/October 2016 lineup features:
Larchmont, New York — September 29, 2016
707 Weaver Street
An English manor set upon 3.72 acres, 707 Weaver Street is a prime example of American Architect Lewis Bowman's Jacobean exteriors. The eight-bedroom, nine-bathroom estate — located at the end of a lingering, private drive — offers Jazz Age details reminiscent of a Great Gatsby mansion, including stained and leaded glass windows, English paneling, custom millwork, and decorative ceilings. Additional features include a heated pool, lush gardens, walking paths, and flagstone terraces. Home to picturesque Manor Park and the renowned Larchmont Yacht Club, Larchmont provides easy access to New York City in just 30 minutes.
Currently listed for $3.999 million, the property will sell without reserve in cooperation with Michèle Flood of Coldwell Banker Previews International.
"With Sheldrake Lake and a 60-acre nature preserve as its backdrop, the location of this magnificent English Manor home could not be more picturesque or tranquil," Flood stated. "The property is poised amongst a rare and private 3.7 acres, a serene retreat just a short 30-minute commute into Manhattan. Its convenience and modern amenities, paired with its exquisite character reflective of its 1920s construction, blend together to make this estate home a dream come true."
Southington, Connecticut — September 30, 2016
340 Winding Ridge
A 9.36-acre, British-style estate, designed by award-winning Soyster and Taylor, 340 Winding Ridge features custom finishes both inside and out including its aged Virginia brick exterior and beveled Brazilian Cherry hardwood floors. The four-bedroom, eight-bathroom residence was built to entertain, including a two-story family room, floor-to-ceiling windows, and French doors leading to its granite inlaid swimming pool and spa with a sauna and steam room. Past winner of "Best Custom Library" and "Overall Best Custom Home" from the Home Builders Association of Connecticut, the English estate spans 8,049 square feet, including a finished basement. Additional custom luxury details include rare Hawaiian Verdi granite counters, marble fireplace mantels imported from Spain, and a koi pond with a waterfall.
Previously listed for $3.69 million, the property will sell at or above $1.9 million in cooperation with Ed Robertson of Coldwell Banker Premiere Realtors. The seller, Richard Fedor, said a large part of the estate's appeal is its multiple uses.
"The location of our home, which is basically equidistant between Boston and New York City, makes it an ideal family compound or corporate retreat," said Fedor, who is selling along with his wife, Bonnie. "I've had many business dealings here in the years since we've owned the property, and I've always been proud to share it with both friends and colleagues. As we move on to spend more time at our main home in Florida, I will remember our time here fondly. We wish the new owners well. It truly is an incredible estate."
Southington boasts a history steeped in the American Revolution with close proximity to Hartford, New Haven and the Connecticut coast. New York City and Boston are drivable in under two hours.
Westport, Connecticut — September 30, 2016
157 Easton Road
Located in one of Connecticut's most coveted communities, just an hour northeast of New York City, is 157 Easton Road. The private, 7,885-square-foot estate — set upon 2.75 acres — is located on a mature landscaped wooded oasis on the Aspetuck River, offering the ultimate in privacy. The property offers five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a guest house, and a boat house. Built by Frances Gershwin, sister of George and Ira, and Leopold Godowsky, inventor of Kodachrome, the estate is a year-round entertainer's paradise in Westport's affluent Coleytown section, close to renowned schools, shopping, restaurants, and culture. The estate is minutes from both Compo Beach and the Westport Metro-North train station.
Previously listed for $3.599 million, the property will sell without reserve in cooperation with Jeff Dyment of William Raveis Real Estate.
"157 Easton Road is a private enclave and year-round entertainer's paradise, the ideal home for an outdoor gala or intimate dinner party, conveniently located within an hour's commute to New York City," stated Dyment. "This waterfront home has history and style. Knowing the auction will attract a whole new crop of potential buyers who will appreciate these unique attributes is exciting."
"I fell in love with this house 20 years ago because of its build quality and multi-seasonal, multi-generational capabilities," added Roger Marriott, who is selling the home with his wife, Jan. "Summers here welcome fly fishing in the river, swimming and boating in the lake, and tennis. Winters are all about fireplaces, cozy nooks, and the indoor pool. When we bought the property, our sons were in their early twenties. Two great weddings later, with receptions here by the waterfalls, we now have four wonderful grandchildren who in turn have enjoyed fishing, playing tennis, swimming, catching frogs in the goldfish ponds, and driving around in the golf cart. We will miss this property dearly, and wish the new owners equally enjoyable memories."
Dallas, Texas — October 12, 2016
Casa Belle Vista | 3816 Turtle Creek Drive
Situated on the banks of Turtle Creek in the heart of uptown Dallas, Casa Belle Vista is a beautiful, 8,631-square-foot estate offering four spacious bedrooms and six bathrooms.

Previously listed for $8.9 million, the property will sell without reserve in cooperation with Kelly Watson of Keller Williams Realty Urban Dallas.
"I chose Concierge Auctions because they offer exposure to the exact buyer profile a sophisticated home like mine requires," stated the seller, Lee Bailey. "This is a private estate, nestled in what could be likened to a snapshot of Central Park. The home provides uptown elegance, with all the charm of "down home" Texas warmth and hospitality. I've loved my years here and am confident the new owner will as well."
Las Vegas, Nevada — October 18, 2016
The Versailles Penthouse | 360 East Desert Inn Road
Epitomizing regal French design, the Versailles Penthouse is a tri-level home located atop the Metropolis with gorgeous views overlooking the Wynn Golf Course and Las Vegas Strip.

Previously listed for $4.88 million, the penthouse will sell without reserve in cooperation with Kristen Routh-Silberman of Synergy Sotheby's International Realty.
"The Versailles Penthouse perfectly and uniquely captures the spirit of France within a tri-level penthouse that is as glamourous as it is luxurious.

"Having successfully worked with Concierge Auctions in the past, I know their platform works. We look forward to introducing this penthouse to discerning buyers who know and want the lifestyle this property provides."
"My wife and I had a vision when we built the penthouse in 2003 — our very own Palace of Versailles come to life, which has been a wonderful home where we've made countless memories overlooking the energy and beauty of Las Vegas," stated Barry Shulman, who is selling the home along with his wife, Allyn. "We're ready to move on to our next chapter, and are confident the auction will identify buyers who not only will appreciate what we created, but can envision themselves making it their own home, high in the Vegas sky."
