SANDPOINT, Idaho, June 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- New York-based Concierge Auctions is pleased to announce the July 18th auction without reserve of Stillwater Point, a unique property consisting of three luxurious homes – ranging from 4,400 to 6,600-square-feet each, totaling 14 beds and 17 bathrooms – and four estate parcels. Nestled in a sanctuary of breathtaking mountain-to-lake scenery just outside of Sandpoint, Idaho, the estates will be sold collectively or individually during a live auction. Originally offered collectively for $8.675 million, Stillwater Point will sell to the highest bidder(s) in cooperation with Merry Brown-Hayes of Tomlinson Sotheby's International Realty.
"There has never been an auction of this quality in North Idaho. The seller and I are both excited to be working with Concierge Auctions, as we believe their auction method is the best way to showcase Stillwater Point to the world at large," stated Brown-Hayes. "The property is the only gated community in the area that has private lake access and a beach house; and the three stunning homes and the four estate parcels are designed beautifully to blend with the style and nature of the community. In my 30 years of selling homes I have never worked with a property that is as beautiful and unique as Stillwater Point."
Named the nation's "Most Beautiful Small Town" by Rand McNally and USA Today in 2011, Sandpoint, Idaho is a dream vacation destination. Located on magnificent 43-mile-long Lake Pend Oreille, surrounded by the Selkirk and Cabinet mountains, and with Schweitzer Mount Ski Resort minutes away, Sandpoint features ideal attractions during all seasons. Home to a thriving arts community, the historic Panida Theater, a busy events schedule, a plethora of excellent restaurants, fine hotels, and shopping – the town of Sandpoint is an exciting getaway.
Each of the three homes at Stillwater Point offers its own distinguished character and unique design, while including the most modern and lavish amenities possible. "Mountain Shadow" features luxurious elements and dramatic views of Sandpoint and Schweitzer Mountain ski resort. With 6,600-square-feet of living, the property consists of a wet bar, a wine cellar, five bedrooms and six bathrooms on three levels with an opulent main floor master suite. This beautiful home tucked into the hillside, was originally offered for $3 million.
"Big Pine Lodge," designed with an exceptional Rocky Mountain style, captures 270-degree lake-to-mountain views and features 5,400-square-feet of living, four bedrooms, five bathrooms, four fireplaces, a recreational and media room, an outdoor barbecue and fireplace, two covered decks and a 3-car garage. Superb quality with log and hickory finish details, this home was originally offered for $2.5 million.
The third estate at Stillwater Point, inspired by European Country elegance, is "Evergreen" — 4,400-square-feet of serene living uniquely designed to capture the spectacular lake and mountain views. The home includes post and beam time frame construction, four bedrooms, five bathrooms, plus a library/den and large bonus room over the three-car garage. "Evergreen" was originally offered for $2.3 million.
"Lot 1" at Stillwater Point, originally listed for $765,000, offers 5.6-acres on a point overlooking the lake. This custom estate site is perfect for a large estate home and is only a short distance from the community waterfront. "Lot 2" is an incredible, 2.7-acre parcel on the cul-de-sac with sloping typography and extraordinary views of Schweitzer Mountain, Sandpoint and the lake. It was originally offered for $735,000.

"Lot 7" is a fabulous east facing parcel on 2.4 acres with huge lake and mountain views from East to West and directly toward Hope; originally offered for $695,000.
"The first thought that came to my mind when I saw this property was how truly unique it is," stated seller, Gary Owen. "Having once lived in a summer home on Lake Pend Oreille for years, I can say with confidence that the location is one of the most beautiful in the U.S., and the close proximity to Sandpoint, a gem of a town with a thriving arts community and outstanding year-round activities, makes this an exceptional location for just about anyone. The property offers what no other property does — remarkable 180-degree mountain and lake views from all seven lots. It is also one of the largest turnkey properties in the country that has all the amenities for a family retreat or a corporate retreat, with three distinct, high-end and well-constructed homes that are ready to move in to."
"As a preferred auction provider to Sotheby's International Realty, we're excited to partner with Tomlinson Sotheby's International Realty and Merry Brown-Hayes on this sale," stated President of Concierge Auctions, Laura Brady. "Stillwater Point is a unique asset, and the potential for the seven properties to sell either individually or together lends it well towards an auction. The winning buyer — or buyers — will simply be determined by which format generates the highest total price."
