PARADISE VALLEY, Ariz., March 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Concierge Auctions continues to build upon its notable reputation as the choice auction firm for the sale of luxury properties nationwide with the announcement of Friday's live auction sale of former National Football League quarterback Kurt Warner's residence. Perfectly set on over one acre in one of Paradise Valley's most exclusive neighborhoods, 12 bidders competed for the chance to own 6712 East Cheney Drive, an 11,300-square foot contemporary estate with a convenient location near the exclusive Camelback Country Club. The sale of the home, where the Super Bowl record holder and sports broadcaster previously lived with his family, was conducted in cooperation with Christine Donnelly of HomeSmart International. In addition, a charity auction prior to the home sale for four first-class plane tickets to dinner with Kurt and Brenda Warner and country superstars Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood was a great success. The high bidder contributed $41,000, and Concierge matched that donation, resulting in an astonishing total of $82,000 raised for the Warner's charity, Treasure House.
Concierge Auctions' global marketing campaign generated 13,900 website visits from 44 US states (led by California, New York, Arizona and Texas) and 35 international countries (led by Canada, the UK, the Czech Republic and Mexico). A total of 811 prospects were identified, and 12 bidders participated in the sale.
Designed by renowned Phoenix architect Edward Chavez of Chavez & Associates, 6712 East Cheney Drive was constructed with dramatic living spaces framed with geometric built-ins, gently sloping curves and architecturally-designed elements. The circular driveway and stone fountain leads to a dramatic 24-foot-tall foyer, where a variety of elements come into play including custom circular glass. The estate contains six bedrooms and five and a half bathrooms, a state-of-the-art kitchen with a bar and breakfast nook and a formal dining room. There is also an office, gym, games/billiards room and multiple cozy living areas throughout. Expansive sunny balconies overlook the diving pool and fountains, which connects to a 62-lap pool and private spa. Additionally, there is a one-bedroom, one-bathroom detached guest house, complete with a full kitchenette.
Established and managed by Kurt and Brenda Warner, Treasure House grew out of the Warners' experience with their oldest son, Zachary, who has special needs. The goal is to create assisted living environments across the country, where young adults with disabilities can thrive on their own and achieve independence, while remaining close to their families.

"We are thrilled to not only have found a new buyer for their home but also to have raised a substantial amount for Treasure House. It is such a worthy cause, and we were honored to match our high bidder's contribution."
