NEW YORK, May 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Concierge Auctions announces a new auction date for two premier Chesapeake Bay area properties in Maryland - a contemporary waterfront home with floor-to-ceiling transparent walls in Pasadena, and a luxury property along Harris Creek with deep-water boating access in St. Michaels. Originally scheduled for May 6 and 7, respectively, the auction dates were adjusted to June 3 following bidder requests for additional time to conduct due diligence on the properties. The new auction date will also enable new prospects to become involved.

The properties are being sold in cooperation with Betsy Stettinius of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.

Originally listed for $7.9 million and with a suggested opening bid of $3.5 million, 435 Ginn Lane, also known as the "Glass House," is located at the end of a private, gated lane and includes a 9,700-square-foot contemporary residence just past a caretaker's cottage and guest home. Nestled on a private 3.51-acre peninsula surrounded by southeastern views of the Magothy River, Broad Creek and Sillery Bay, the property features perfectly manicured lawns, an in-ground pool, a private beach, a putting green, a sport court and a deep-water pier with multiple boat slips.

Originally listed for $3.9 million and with a suggested opening bid of $1.5 million, 23377 Sans Souci Drive offers a rare opportunity to own one-fifth of Sans Souci Farm, a 211-acre equestrian and hunting preserve. The 11,000-square-foot Cape Cod estate is set on a more than 16-acre waterfront lot with 950 feet of frontage on Harris Creek and includes five bedrooms and four full and one half bathrooms. Outdoor amenities include a waterfront guest house, a pool, a garden and orchard and an 80-foot pier on Harris Creek with six feet of water at the end, offering direct access to the Chesapeake Bay.
