AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- When a retired technology executive decided to auction his own palatial residence, his platform of choice was naturally the Internet, which allows buyers around the world to participate in an easy and secure manner. Claymon Cipione, former CIO of AMD and executive at AOL and IBM, says, "I knew that an online auction was the best way for me to successfully and quickly sell my property and I've been following Interluxe since their inception. My decision to work with them was based on their strong track record and results with homes of this caliber."
"Interluxe was the first to harness the power of the Internet and exclusively represent high end, non-distressed homes through online auction." Says Interluxe President Scott Kirk, "We've pioneered online auctions for luxury real estate by combining the traditional auction concept for luxury homes with today's extraordinary technology to dramatically expand the pool of bidders and ease of participation."
Located in an exclusive resort-style gated community in Spicewood, TX, the 4-acre estate sits on the shore of Lake Travis, with breathtaking views over the water. The 9 bedroom, 8 full/4 half bathroom villa will be auctioned online beginning Monday, August 22 at 9:00 a.m. EDT. The starting bid of only $2 million presents an amazing deal for the custom built, fully furnished estate, which has had more than $13 million put into it.
Created as the ultimate family retreat, with a boat dock, swimming pool, outdoor kitchen/dining area, theater, soundproofed music room, game room and full gym among its entertainments, the property is within a 30-minute commute of Austin. It can also serve as a primary residence with the historic town of Spicewood and an exemplary school district immediately accessible.
The owner's love of entertaining is reflected in the spectacular great room with carved wood bar, 1000 bottle wine room, multiple verandahs and terraces for outdoor parties, and a gourmet kitchen with butler's pantry that can cater for two to two-hundred. The award-winning design by architect Bob Wetmore also allows privacy for extended family with a detached 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment with its own kitchen and living areas.
The sale is being conducted in cooperation with the listing agent, Monica Fabbio of Kuper Sotheby's International Realty.
Open house viewings of the property will begin Friday, August 19th and continue throughout the weekend.
