Jackson Hole Area, Wyoming — Bidding Open Until July 27, 2017
The Ranch | 640 Clearwater Lane

A 300-acre gentleman's ranch, The Ranch is comprised of an impressive 6,000±square-foot main residence, a day lodge that can be converted to a guest home, and organic farming facilities. The main estate offers a great room boasting 16- to 20-foot ceilings, a master bedroom with a private porch, marble-clad bath, and waterfall shower head, and a Louis XIII French fireplace. The two-story lodge features a restaurant-grade commercial kitchen, great room and bar, main dining space that holds up to 60 people, and private meeting room.

Outdoor amenities include an enclosed porch, courtyard, stone fireplace, and wood-fired pizza oven. The organic farming facilities also include a five-acre farm with a diverse array of produce and herbs, a two-acre plot of English lavender, and a small orchard of semi-dwarf apple, cherry, and plum trees. A temperature- and humidity-controlled greenhouse produces world-class tomatoes in the summer. With four-and-a-half miles of Salt River frontage spanning both sides, residents and guests have easy access to world-class fly fishing — all just 45 miles south of Jackson Hole in Star Valley. Founded on the idea of mountain hospitality, this tranquil location is ideal for a personal escape, residential development, or even a corporate retreat.

Previously listed for $40 million, The Ranch will sell At or Above $15 million in cooperation with Pamela Renner of Jackson Hole Sotheby's International Realty.

Gig Harbor, WashingtonJuly 31, 2017
Wollochet Bay Compound | 4717 19th Court NW

A waterfront compound located on Gig Harbor's desired Wollochet Bay, this property is comprised of more than seven acres including 450 feet of waterfront with deep water moorage, a custom garage/showroom, a separate caretaker's property, and three helipads. The European-inspired carriage house features custom finishes, hardwood floors, beamed ceilings, Venetian plaster walls, and a cast stone gas fireplace. The large French doors of the impressive great room offer stunning views of Wollochet Bay and Mount Rainier. A car enthusiast's dream, the compound's auto showroom is complete with air compressors, wash bays, an RV garage, and maintenance equipment. Additional specialty rooms include a wine cellar, workshop, and staff quarters.

Situated just one hour from Seattle upon a peninsula on the Puget Sound, Gig Harbor — previously named one of Smithsonian Magazine's "Top Five Small Towns" — is home to championship canoe and kayak racing teams, local breweries, dining, shopping, and parks.

Previously listed for $10.5 million, Wollochet Bay Compound will sell Without Reserve in cooperation with Randi and Joseph Brazen of Brazen Sotheby's International Realty.

Big Sky, MontanaAugust 17, 2017
Yellowstone Preserve

The last large acreage of developable land in the Rocky Mountains, Yellowstone Preserve is an immense, 1,580-acre property comprised of eight mountain ranches and infrastructure for eight home sites plus a caretaker site. In total, the property offers more than two-and-a-half square miles of mountain views, forest, and wildlife; more than one mile of Gallatin River frontage; nearly two acres of Gallatin National Forest border; and more than two miles of adjacent border with the famed Yellowstone Club.

All eight ranches offer unique amenities including panoramic mountain views, abundant wildlife, private trails, and more. The Dunraven Ranch — arguably the best of the collection — boasts unmatched mountain views in every direction, 309 acres of forest, meadows and talus gardens, and access to the Gallatin National Forest.

Conveniently located just minutes from Big Sky Town Center, Big Sky Ski Resort, Moonlight Basin, Spanish Peaks Mountain Club, and the Yellowstone Club, the property offers easy access to modern conveniences as well as a variety of outdoor activities including rafting, horseback riding, wildlife watching, and golfing.

"A collection of nine home sites, Yellowstone Preserve is impressive acreage bordering Yellowstone Club, National Forest, and the Gallatin River," stated Exclusive Listing Broker Martha Johnson of The Big Sky Real Estate Co., who has repeatedly partnered with Concierge Auctions in the past. "It's arguably one of the last intact large acreage holdings in the Rocky Mountains in the heart of everything wonderful about Big Sky. Boasting easy access to skiing, hunting, fishing, hiking, mountain biking, four-wheeling, and snowmobiling, this property is the perfect opportunity to build an executive retreat or family compound. As Yellowstone Preserve is not being offered publicly, this auction is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity." 

Previously listed for $39.9 million, the property will sell in cooperation with Johnson. 

Motu Tiano, Tahiti, French PolynesiaAugust 23, 2017
Motu Tiano

Motu Tiano — an approximately 20-acre private island along the turquoise waters of the South Pacific — consists of a Polynesian-style home with all of the furnishings, security, and modern amenities needed to live a life of tranquility, including a spacious living and dining area and fully-equipped kitchen and bathroom. The home accommodates up to 15 people.

With premier surfing, sailing and diving, the property's lush tropical gardens include palm trees and allow for views across the lagoon to the mountains beyond. Outdoor amenities include an outdoor deck, private wharf, covered dining area, large dock, boat house, and deep water access to launch and moor yachts. Just a short boat trip from Raiatea, the second largest of the Society Islands, Motu Tiano offers convenient connections to dining, shopping, and other nearby islands.

"My wife and I have traveled widely but nowhere else in the world offers the natural beauty and tranquility of Motu Tiano," stated Jim Simpson, seller of the property. "The local people are so welcoming and helpful, and the French Polynesian culture still includes a number of ancient traditions, which have been passed down from generation to generation. Life on Motu Tiano is peaceful and relaxing, and we will very much miss our home here, but as we approach retirement, we have decided it is time to pass on this beautiful home to another owner."

Currently listed for $11.88 million, the island will sell At or Above $6 million in cooperation with Maima Sylvain of Agence Jeanine Sylvain.

Catalina Island, CaliforniaAugust 24, 2017
