SANTA BARBARA, Calif., March 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- A private and serene luxury estate situated on two beautifully landscaped acres at 110 Orizaba Road near the Montecito/Santa Barbara boundary in scenic and sunny California will sell at a live, on-site auction on April 21st, Concierge Auctions has announced. Originally listed for $3,390,000, there is no minimum bid required to participate. The sale will take place in cooperation with listing agents Jackie Walters and Emily McBride of Village Properties, a member of Christie's Great Estates.

"Having been in the real estate business for many years, I appreciate innovative marketing tactics and am excited to be pursuing this auction alongside Concierge Auctions," Walters stated. "The seller is fully committed to finding a new owner for this exquisite property on April 21st. With no minimum bid required to participate, this is one of the most enticing opportunities the Santa Barbara area has experienced in quite some time."

Ideally located near the Montecito and Santa Barbara boundary, this exquisitely private and serene foothills estate is beyond impeccable and offers a newly rebuilt four bedroom, three full and one half bathroom residence, and a matching carriage house with three-car garage, potting shed and guest apartment. The over two-acre grounds include 100-year-old oak and olive trees, a seasonal creek, expansive lawns, extensive stonework, a stone vegetable garden and unparalleled panoramic mountain views.

"Santa Barbara is without a doubt one of the most coveted locations in the United States. It's no wonder why residents, celebrities and other vacationers find it so desirable," stated Laura Brady, Vice President of Marketing for Concierge Auctions. "We're thrilled to be hosting our first auction in this area of California, and look forward to identifying a new owner on April 21st."

Situated on an east-west trending section of coastline, the longest such section on the West Coast of the United States, Santa Barbara is a year-round tourist destination that lies between the steeply-rising Santa Ynez Mountains and the Pacific Ocean. Santa Barbara's climate is often described as Mediterranean, and the city is sometimes referred to as the "American Riviera." Hollywood celebrities abound along the California Central Coast, and Santa Barbara is no exception thanks to its fair weather, downtown beaches, majestic mountains and close proximity to Los Angeles, located about 90 miles northwest.

The live, on-site auction of 110 Orizaba Road will be held on April 21st. Bidders will be able to participate in person or proxy via telephone or Internet. Preregistration is required. A 2.5% commission is offered to the buyer's broker. See Auction Terms and Conditions for full details. The property is available for preview daily from 1 to 4 p.m. and by appointment.
