UNIONVILLE, Pa., April 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Vezelay Estate, an equestrian's dream home boasting 51.9 acres, a six-stall custom barn and a more than 9,000-square-foot main residence, went under contract prior to the scheduled May 10 auction date, Concierge Auctions has announced. The sale is in cooperation with listing agents Brett Jones and Karen Nader of Brandywine Fine Properties Sotheby's International Realty.

"The Concierge Auctions platform is a powerful tool for listing agents with unique, high-end properties," Jones stated. "After the auction exposure launched, we quickly identified over 30 buyer prospects - more than in the entire two years prior."

Located on 51.9 acres in the middle of Cheshire Hunt Country in Unionville, PA, only one hour west of Philadelphia, the Vezelay Estate capitalizes on bucolic pastoral views, vast, open skies and the nearby, protected Brandywine Conservatory. The main home features more than 9,000 square feet with five bedrooms, five full baths and three half-baths, open, cathedral ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows that offer picture-perfect views of the Laurels Preserve.

Concierge Auctions' global exposure campaign generated 32 buyer prospects and 3,864 visits to the auction website from all US states and 42 international countries.

"This sale is an example of why the Concierge process is a great choice for luxury homeowners. We work alongside top-producing real estate brokers and enhance their traditional efforts with aggressive outreach and a sense of urgency - something otherwise lacking in the market today," stated Laura Brady, Vice President of Marketing for Concierge Auctions. "In this case, as in most of our auctions, the buyers are end-users who will enjoy the property for years to come. They understood the value of the estate and were willing to step forward with an acceptable offer in order to negate the risk of losing it on auction day. Everyone is looking forward to moving smoothly and quickly towards the closing table."
