"Live bidding will take place in New York City and can also be seen on our mobile bidding app, Instant Gavel."

Concierge Auctions' "Winter Portfolio Sale" includes:

300 Elks Park - Telluride, CO
A private mountain estate, centrally located in the heart of world-renowned ski town Telluride at the base of the San Juan Mountains, 300 Elks Park is a third-story condominium penthouse with commanding 360-degree views. Masterfully designed by renowned New York architecture firm Alan Wanzenberg Architect/Design, and built by Telluride's elite construction company, Fortenberry Construction, the modern residence was made for grand hosting and entertaining including limestone flooring reclaimed from castles in Europe, a spacious dining area with a country kitchen, and an 1,100-square-foot great room. In addition to its four bedrooms and four bathrooms, the 6,235-square-foot property offers a theater room, billiards room, and three outdoor decks. The property is a short walk from Telluride's fine dining, shopping, vibrant culture, and skiing.

Currently offered at $18 million, the property will sell without reserve in cooperation with Michael Wentworth of Telluride & Mountain Village Properties and Rosie Cusack of Telluride Luxury Rentals & Real Estate, Inc. 

"300 Elks Park is one of the finest ski properties in all of Colorado — not only because it's a stone's throw from some of the state's best terrain, fishing, hiking, biking, and world-class festivals and arts, but also because it's located in the center of historic and beautiful Telluride," Wentworth stated.

Cusack added: "The view from every window is breathtaking, and all of Telluride is right outside the door. With its architecture, unparalleled design pedigree, and incredibly high-quality construction, one lucky buyer will own one of the world's most unique mountain town properties."

The Kleeberg Residence, 3 Riverside Drive – New York, NY
An iconic Upper West Side residence and one of the neighborhood's most historic estates, the famed Kleeburg Residence at 3 Riverside Drive is a 19th century townhouse. Boasting original intricate woodwork, ornate gothic details, and a French Renaissance Revival façade, the property spans an impressive 10,987 square feet and includes eight bedrooms, nine-and-a-half bathrooms, nine fireplaces, an elevator, library, indoor resistance pool, and four outdoor terraces. Offering stunning city views of both Riverside Park and the Hudson River, the 37-foot-wide-property is nestled at the southernmost end of the park, in close proximity to both the 72nd Street subway stop and Henry Hudson Parkway.

Appraised just a few years ago for $29 million by renowned firm Miller Samuel Inc., the property is estimated to sell between $13-$16 million, in cooperation with Daniel Joory and Howard Morrel of Engel & Völkers.

"We are excited by the opportunity and prospects this auction presents. Buyers from around the world will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to purchase a historic and rare 37-foot-wide Upper West Side townhouse," Joory stated. "Designed by renowned Architect Charles Pierrepont H. Gilbert with high ceilings and a limestone façade, the home still has all of its original woodwork and offers unobstructed views of Riverside Park and Hudson River. It's quintessential New York City."

The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Unit 401A/501A – Singer Island, FL
Located within the five-star Ritz-Carlton Residences on Singer Island — one of only nine standalone Ritz-Carlton-branded residential communities in the world — this six-bedroom, eight-bathroom oceanfront home offers full access to resort-style amenities, including 24-hour concierge service and two heated pools and spas.

Comprised of 7,210 square feet, the home offers panoramic views of the beach and Atlantic coastline, a floor-to-ceiling wall of windows, a home theater, multiple terraces, and a large balcony for entertaining. Endless Ritz-Carlton amenities also include valet parking, a social room with catering and game facilities, a fitness center, library, private screening room, board room, a private poolside restaurant, chef-maintained herb garden, and 375 feet of direct, gated beachfront access. The property is conveniently located near high-end shopping, art, antiques, fine dining, and golf and equestrian and polo clubs, just 20 minutes from Palm Beach International Airport.

Previously listed for $7.75 million, the property will sell without reserve in cooperation with Cristina Condon and Todd Peter of Sotheby's International Realty Palm Beach.

"The Ritz-Carlton on Singer Island is a beach lover's paradise. Residents enjoy resort-style amenities coupled with a private white-sand beach, multiple pools, and endless recreation," Peter stated. "This is the only condo in the entire community where the developer allowed for two units to be connected vertically.  The grand foyer and graceful staircase make this property feel more like a home in the sky.  The opportunity to purchase a home of this caliber at auction with no minimum bid is extremely rare. Interested buyers should act now and register for the upcoming auction on December 20th."

A Selection of Prime Central London Apartments – London, England
An impressive portfolio of residences located throughout the heart of central London, Concierge Auctions has been retained to sell a number of properties for real estate investment and development group Affinity Global Real Estate.
