NEW YORK, Nov. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading global luxury real estate marketplace Concierge Auctions is kicking off the winter season with 12 exclusive opportunities to own the world's most elite real estate. The lineup — which spans six US states, Italy, Spain, and Fiji — includes an oceanfront dream home in Dana Point; a recently renovated North Carolina manor; over 3,000 acres of rare, developable land in Santa Barbara County; and the historic First Texas White House just outside of Houston. The majority of the newly-announced inventory will sell without reserve via the firm's Instant Gavel app, which allows buyers to participate in auctions real-time from anywhere in the world. 

Casa Dall' Oceano, Dana Point, CA

"This holiday season, Concierge Auctions is presenting 12 diverse opportunities to own luxury property to fit any lifestyle," stated Concierge Auctions President and Founder Laura Brady. "Potential buyers across the globe can secure their dream home at their bid price just in time for the holidays — whether that be in the US, Europe, or South Pacific — and it's as easy as a tap of a finger. Our app is transparent and seamless, as is our process for selling one-of-a-kind, incomparable properties."

Concierge Auctions' November/Early December 2016 lineup features:

Dana Point, CANovember 17, 2016
Casa Dall' Oceano | 9 Strand Beach Drive  

Located at 9 Strand Beach Drive within the guard-gated Strand at Headlands luxury community, Casa Dall' Oceano is an oceanfront dream home with custom floor-to-ceiling windows and gorgeous ocean views from every angle. The 10,279-square-foot property, in the final phase of completion, is ready for your choosing of fixtures and finishes to your own personalization. Boasting five bedrooms, six bathrooms, a theatre room, indoor driving range, infinity-edge pool and spa, a teen lounge, and poolside patio, residents of this new-construction home will enjoy access to "The Strand" Beach Club, located minutes from the property, with VIP privileges at the Ritz Carlton, Laguna Niguel.

Previously listed for $25.995 million, the property will sell without reserve in cooperation with Craig and Marc Lotzof of The Lotzof Group.  

"Casa Dall' Oceano is hands down one of the most significant and exciting oceanfront opportunities offered for sale in southern California," Lotzof stated. "Not only is this a new construction home with direct beach access, but the winning bidder will be able to customize the space to their preference in mere months versus the years it would take to build this mansion from scratch. This is an exclusive home set within an equally exclusive community – the auction should not be missed."

Winston-Salem, NCNovember 18, 2016
508 Stonegate Lane   

A newly-renovated, 11,133-square-foot European manor located in one of America's most livable cities, 508 Stonegate Lane sits on 1.33 acres and offers five spacious bedrooms, seven bathrooms and an additional two-bedroom guest house. The main estate features a grand foyer with 35-foot ceilings, hand-selected Tennessee stone, and antique chandeliers. Numerous entertainment amenities include a wet bar, wine cellar, home theater, billiards room, and library. Outdoors, the landscape includes a heated pond with waterfall, pergola, stone terrace, and hot tub. Located in the heart of Winston-Salem, the property is close to Forsythe Country Club and Wake Forest University, just a 30-minute drive to Piedmont Triad International Airport.

Never before offered for sale, 508 Stonegate Lane will sell without reserve in cooperation with John-Mark Mitchell of Mitchell Prime Properties — a preferred agent with Concierge Auctions, who has represented several sales with the firm.  

"This is one of the most magnificent properties ever constructed in the Triad area of North Carolina," Mitchell stated. "Even upon entering, the 35-foot foyer made of hand-selected Tennessee stone with a fireplace in its center immediately signals you've entered someplace special. It's such a unique offering, yet still quite livable. As this is the first time the property has ever been available, we can't wait to see the activity and excitement the auction elicits."

Santa Barbara County, CADecember 7, 2016
Rancho Monte Alegre     

Ideally set just minutes from downtown Santa Barbara and celeb-studded Montecito, Rancho Monte Alegre is the epitome of ranch living along the coveted "American Riviera." Offering Pacific Ocean and mountain views, Rancho Monte Alegre consists of over 3,000 acres including private hiking and equestrian trails, creeks, waterfalls, and an orchard of lemon and avocado trees. Surrounded by the Los Padres National Forest, the expansive acreage lends itself to multiple use opportunities including a legacy coastal ranch or a community of carefully selected home sites. Of the 25 total lots included in the acreage, eight were sold previously and 17 are available and developable. They range from 40-150 acres each. Additionally, the property includes a 2,700-acre conservation easement for agricultural use and to permanently protect the natural open space.

Currently listed for $32 million, the property will sell without reserve in cooperation with Billy Long and Ranch Marketing Associates, LLC.  

"Rancho Monte Alegre clearly provides a rare opportunity to enjoy nature in an undisturbed state. It's just an outdoor heaven for people with an active lifestyle," Long stated.
