FLAGSTAFF, Ariz., April 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Concierge Auctions, the New York-based industry leader for auctioning high-end properties worldwide, has announced the May 21st auction of Paradis Moderne, a 7.26-acre wooded property with a pedigreed modern residence amid the mountains of Flagstaff, Arizona. Originally offered for $2.995 million, the estate will sell to the highest bidder without reserve in cooperation with Bruce Tobias of RE/MAX Sedona and Gregg Landauer of Century 21 Flagstaff Realty.
The sellers, Larry Decker, M.D. and Carol Scribner, reflected on their purchase and development of the estate: "The main reason we fell in love with this property and decided to build here was the location," stated Scribner. "We live only 45 minutes away in Sedona, and having this second home in Flagstaff is a great benefit. Along with the higher altitude comes cool air, rustling pine trees and surrounding mountains — It's so refreshing. Of course, there was also the fact that our art collection was bursting, and we wanted new walls to fill."
This one-of-a-kind, custom residence in Flagstaff's coveted Country Club Ridge was designed and built from the ground-up. Every detail of its 6,700 square feet was hand selected with the vision of renowned architect Steven Thompson. An impressive blend of modern, contemporary and mountain chic, its floor-to-ceiling glass windows offer 360-degree views of Mt. Humphries and the surrounding national forests. The home includes four bedrooms and four full and one half bathrooms, including a guest apartment with private entrance.
"While the rare acreage provides great seclusion, action-seekers and travelers will enjoy the close proximity to skiing and golf courses, as well as easy drives to Sedona, Scottsdale, the Grand Canyon and Las Vegas, not to mention all of Southern California," said Landauer. "For the more ambitious traveler, the Phoenix airport is only two hours away, with flights anywhere in the world."
The scenic city of Flagstaff, Arizona is located at the base of the state's highest mountain, 12,634-foot Humphrey's Peak. The cool and crisp summer months urge hiking and mountain biking, while winter brings plenty of snow for cross-country and downhill skiing. Three national monuments are nearby, and a little further away are the Grand Canyon and Petrified Forest national parks. Northern Arizona University is a stronghold for the area, with nearly 20,000 students enrolled at the Flagstaff campus.
"On the heels of our successful sale of the East Caron Estate in Paradise Valley, we're ready to prove our auction solution again in Arizona," stated Concierge Auctions' Founder and President, Laura Brady. "The Scribners have selected the purest form of auction — without reserve, which proves their commitment to fully allow the market to name the price. This is an amazing opportunity to purchase a one-of-a-kind property in an easy, straightforward transaction."
The auction of Paradis Moderne, located at 96 North Lake Hills Drive in Flagstaff, Arizona, will be conducted live on May 21st. A 3% commission is offered to the buyer's representing broker. The property is open for preview daily from 1-4pm and by appointment. See Auction Terms and Conditions for full details. For more information, call 877.603.1103.
