FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Dec. 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Platinum Luxury Auctions, a veteran auction firm specializing in the sale of unique and distinguished properties within and beyond the United States, has announced the upcoming auction sale of a newly constructed ranch estate in Southwest Ranches, Florida - a rural yet upscale town located 15 miles southwest of Fort Lauderdale. Completed in 2014 and awaiting its first owner, the property offers 7 bedrooms, 8 full and 2 half bathrooms throughout two living levels, and is situated on a private and gated 4-acre parcel. On January 23, 2016, the mansion will be sold at or above the auction's reserve price of $2.7 million, a considerable reduction to its recent asking price of $8.4 million.
The sale kicks off a blistering auction pace for Platinum at the start of the new year, with 7 luxury auctions already scheduled during the months of January and February, featuring properties in areas such as Florida, Texas, New York, and even Fiji.
"In less than one month, this exceptional home will welcome its very first owners," said Trayor Lesnock, founder and president of Platinum. "It's difficult in Broward County to find a large, luxurious home with ample acreage in an upscale setting. That type of inventory is typically rather limited."
The property grounds include an elegantly winding driveway, complete with a circular entry and a manicured courtyard with fountain, providing an elegant arrival, which concludes under a grand porte cochere. There is also a private lake, in addition to a large pool and spa with an oversized pool deck, adjacent summer kitchen and barbeque.
The 15,500-square-foot interior of the residence offers plenty of impressive features, such as a two-story foyer with dual staircases and a sparkling chandelier, a master suite complete with a private balcony, breakfast bar, his-and-her walk-ins and water closets, and a bathroom with an oversized spa tub, cedar wood sauna room, and custom shower with multiple heads, mood-lighting and music – all controlled electronically.
There is also a gourmet kitchen, fitness center with steam room, an executive study, cinema room and a soundproof music studio. An especially unique feature of the estate is a "sports parlor" with raised ceilings, a retractable, "hideaway" basketball hoop and full bar overlooking the lake. The parlor is accessed by glass-walled bridgeway, which is built over a section of the lake that flows beneath it. The bridgeway is large enough to serve as a lounge or billiards room.
With zoning rules that prevent residential parcels less than one acre in size, the town of Southwest Ranches is comprised of large homesites set amongst open, rural spaces. The increased privacy and a lack of congestion have made the area a popular choice for a number of executives, professional athletes, and even a few celebrities.
Property previews begin January 4th, and will be held daily between 12 and 5pm until the auction date. Interested parties may contact Platinum Luxury Auctions at 1.800.931.3229, or visit SWRanchesLuxuryAuction.com for additional details.
