HIDDEN VALLEY, Calif., April 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- New York City-based Concierge Auctions continues its record-pacing year of monumental luxury property sales with today's announcement that Heartridge has gone under contract for the highest price in the past 9 months in Westlake Village and Thousand Oaks. The private, Victorian-style residence on more than 20 acres in celebrity-favored Hidden Valley, one of Southern California's most exclusive private and gated communities, was sold prior to the April 28th auction date in cooperation with listing agents Nicki LaPorta and Karen Crystal of Ewing & Associates Sotheby's International Realty. LaPorta and Crystal also represented the buyer. The sale follows Concierge's recent successful auctions of Champ d'Or in Dallas, Texas; the Happy Valley Estate in Scottsdale, Arizona; and Big Sky, Montana residences in the Yellowstone Club and Spanish Peaks, among others.

"The number of showings [97] produced in just a few weeks by Concierge Auctions was significant. The buyers fell in love with the property, including the fabulous amenities, 20 acres of privacy, and unrivaled mountain views. The fear that they might lose it forced them to act fast and purchase before auction day," Crystal stated. "This was an exciting process to be a part of. Everyone was aware of the seller's commitment, and the buyers were decisive and knew they had found their home."

Concierge Auctions' worldwide exposure campaign identified 188 buyer prospects and produced 97 showings. The auction website generated visitors from all US states led by California, Texas, Florida and New York, and 37 international countries led by Canada, the UK, Australia and Brazil.

Located on 20 acres at 2200 White Stallion Road, Heartridge is a 10,000-square-foot-plus estate with six bedrooms, nine bathrooms and views spanning Hidden Valley. The residence boasts a grand foyer with a sweeping staircase, gourmet kitchen, butler's pantry, library, office, playroom, home theater and staff quarters. Outdoors, a wrap-around veranda overlooks a garden and fruit orchard. There is also a pool and spa, five-car garage, plans for a guest cottage, tennis court and gym, and room for equestrian facilities.

"Concierge Auctions only represents the finest luxury properties, which is key to our success in producing record prices time and again," stated Laura Brady, Vice President of Marketing for Concierge Auctions. "We are extremely selective with the properties we accept into our process, and as a result we have built a valuable database of followers who trust that when they view a Concierge property it will be of the utmost quality and value. We are dedicated to upholding our standards, as will be further evidenced by our upcoming California auctions this summer -- to be announced soon."
