NEW YORK, Jan. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- New York City-based luxury real estate marketplace Concierge Auctions is kicking off the new year in style with 10 diverse luxury real estate opportunities. The impressive lineup — which spans two US states, Costa Rica, Israel, Italy, and the United Kingdom — will sell via the firm's Instant Gavel app, which allows potential buyers to bid in real-time from anywhere in the world. The diverse January offerings include a Costa Rican villa; a coveted Ritz-Carlton Residences penthouse in Tel Aviv; and several flats in the heart of London.
"We're starting off the new year right with a strong lineup of one-of-a-kind, incomparable properties — all of which are located in distinct parts of the world — that are sure to meet the luxury lifestyle buyers dream of," stated Concierge Auctions President and Founder Laura Brady. "We invite potential buyers globally to take advantage of these rare opportunities and turn their dreams into a reality this year."
Concierge Auctions' January 2017 lineup features:
Montezuma, Costa Rica — January 31, 2017
Offering seamless indoor/outdoor living across 13 acres of vegetation, Villa Paraiso is situated on Costa Rica's Nicoya Peninsula and overlooks the Pacific Ocean. Designed by renowned architect Ronald Zurcher, the 16,408-square-foot compound is comprised of a Spanish-style main villa; a three-suite, cliffside studio; and staff quarters. In addition to its infinity-edge pool, horse stables, and auto court built to accommodate helicopter service, the property also features a custom 300-foot suspension bridge for strolls to the nearby beach and Montezuma village.
Previously listed for $6.5 million, the property will sell without reserve in cooperation with Michael Grady of The Agency.
"We worked closely with the architect for two years to build our dream home in order to combine a Spanish, colonial style with a Mediterranean feel, and it was worth every minute. With the surrounding Costa Rican jungle and panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, there is nowhere in the world where you can take a break from your life and enjoy the things you love most better than you can here," stated the seller, Mickey Novak. "While the property is incredibly private, it is a mere five-minute walk to the nearby beach and village of Montezuma via the property's private suspension bridge. The home has been the epitome of 'pura vida.' We expect great interest in the auction, as it offers buyers a once-in-a-lifetime chance to purchase not only a luxury home, but also adopt its unique lifestyle."
