SANTA MONICA and MALIBU, Calif., Dec. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- New York City-based Concierge Auctions is pleased to announce the auctions of two luxury California estates: The Oasis in Santa Monica and 21900 Briarbluff in Malibu. Originally offered for $18.75 million, The Oasis includes two complimenting houses, which harmoniously frame a central pool, spa, and courtyard, and is mere minutes to the beach and private beach clubs of Santa Monica. The property will be sold in cooperation with Marcie Hartley and Gary Gold of Hilton & Hyland. 21900 Briarbluff, a magnificent five-acre estate featuring a modern, architectural masterpiece with ocean and mountain views, was originally offered for $5.95 million and will sell without reserve in cooperation with Judy Feder of Hilton & Hyland.
"Both The Oasis and 21900 Briarbluff are stunning works of modern architecture, while the differing materials and locations set them apart," stated Laura Brady, Managing Director of Concierge Auctions. "The most difficult decision for bidders will be which one to choose."
Designed by renowned, Malibu-based architect Christopher R. Sorensen, The Oasis was recently completed and offers an ideal location — only a five-minute walk to the beach and close proximity to Beverly Hills. The estate includes two houses with a total of 12,500+/ square feet, eight bedrooms, 13 bathrooms, three steam rooms, a 950-bottle wine cellar, a five-car garage and floor-to-ceiling glass walls that provide garden views from almost every part of the compound.
"This is one of the most impressive homes I've ever seen," stated Gold. "The owner had a unique vision, combined with the resources, passion, taste and time to create this one-of-a-kind masterpiece. There is an abundance of materials used throughout the home, such as 500-year-old teak that is just no longer available. Every detail of the entirely hand-made home has been precisely thought-out and impressively curated by the owner. As soon as you enter the home, you cannot help but involuntarily smile — it is like entering a different world that's a perfect combination of beauty and serenity. This compound consists of two legitimate, single family homes that can function separately or in unison, making it an attractive estate for a variety of buyers."
Privacy and tranquility abound at The Oasis, with beautiful waterfall walls and a Zen garden pool, a saltwater pebble stone infinity pool and spa with swim-up bar, and a breathtaking Japanese garden complete with natural stone, lilies, koi and stone sculptures.
"In my 12 years of experience with real estate in this market, this is one of the most remarkable properties I've had the pleasure of working on," stated Hartley. "Each of the estate's rooms brings together high-end refinement and deep tranquility, further enhanced by the beautiful surrounding grounds, rich in succulents, creating an oasis-like compound. The auction of this property presents a very exciting and unique opportunity to a buyer interested in both luxury and serenity."
In addition to The Oasis, Concierge Auctions will also be auctioning 21900 Briarbluff in Malibu. Originally designed by the iconic 1970s architects Buff, Smith & Hensman, the four bedroom, six bathroom estate has undergone a meticulous and extensive renovation by renowned architect David Montalba Architects, Santa Monica to transform the existing house from a vertical to a more horizontal structure. The restoration and additions defined the terraced site with wood-clad walls that situate the house as a series of outdoor rooms with an indigenous landscape. Features include a blend of unique stone and Brazilian walnut floor, floor-to-ceiling windows to capture the canyon and ocean views, built-in walnut millwork, a stone-clad interior water feature and a custom aquarium room divider.
"I have seen this house come to life from the ground up," stated Feder. "The property has had only 2 owners: the original owners who commissioned signature architects Buff, Smith and Hensman to build it, and the present owner, who commissioned leading restoration architect David Montalba to enhance the estate with 2013 materials, appliances and infrastructure. For me, the soaring canyons that surround the house are just as exciting as seeing the iconic Malibu Pier with its white water waves — the best surfing on the coast. This home represents history, serenity and the utmost quality of design and materials."
The auctions of The Oasis, located at 341 & 345 West Channel Road in Santa Monica, and 21900 Briarbluff Drive in Malibu will be held live on January 30th. 2.5% commissions are offered to the buyers' representing brokers. The Oasis will be open for preview daily from 11am to 2pm and by appointment. 21900 Briarbluff will be open for preview daily from 3pm to 6pm and by appointment.
