An oceanfront estate on Maui’s Kahana coast, a resort-like complex in Scottsdale, Arizona, and a Caribbean hideaway in Turks & Caicos are a few of the properties heading toward the auction block in coming weeks. Read more in our latest high-end real estate roundup.
An oceanfront home on Maui’s Kahana coastline is coming up for auction on January 17th. Offering panoramic Pacific views, the Balinese-inspired estate offers 5 bedrooms, 5.5 baths, a Guest House, and a full complement of luxury features, including gourmet kitchen, Lanai, Lagoon Pool & Spa. Additional touches include palm wood floors, antique Thai carved doors, picture windows, 20 foot ceilings, and a Zen waterfall entry. Constructed in 2005 and renovated in 2011, the 5,661saf home sits on a half-acre within walking distance of the beach. It will be sold by absolute auction, meaning it will go to the highest bidder, regardless of price.
Another substantial home to be auctioned in coming weeks is a contemporary estate complex in Scottsdale, Arizona. Hawaiian Koa wood flows throughout the energy-efficient home, which includes 8 bedrooms and 9.3 baths. Its amenities rival a resort’s. They include a telescope Observatory with retractable roof, a riding train, a 300’ zipline, a 4,700sf gym with an indoor basketball court, a built-in honed flagstone aquarium, a 2000sf shop, and an infinity edge pool with slide and 10-person spa. The estate, which sits on 16 acres in the Sonoran Desert, will also be sold by absolute auction.
Those looking for something on the east coast might be interested in a newly constructed mansion in Short Hills, N.J. that’s scheduled to be sold on January 21st. Originally listed at $7.15m, the 15,000sf home sits on 2 acres and offers 8 bedrooms and 9.2 baths. With a traditional stone and shingled exterior, it has 10-foot ceilings and hand-trimmed interior finish work. Its public areas include a double-height entry foyer, a large sunroom reception area, living and dining rooms with fireplaces, a double-height cathedral family room, cherry paneled library, and “state of the art” kitchen, wine cellar, and exercise room. Upstairs, a 3,000sf master suite with private foyer, sitting room and bedroom awaits the new owners. The home has a starting bid of $3m.
Should a chilly climate seem not quite appealing, an alternative is a Caribbean waterfront estate in Turks & Caicos that will be sold next month in an absolute auction. Located on the island of North Caicos, the 4,946sf home called “La Dolce Vita” comprises three Mediterranean-styled buildings set around a large courtyard overlooking the sea. The main building has two stories, each with a covered porch. An open dining room and great room lead to a large, ceramic-tiled pool with infinity edge. In addition, there’s a full kitchen with cherry cabinetry with ceramic tile inlay. The master suite is on the second floor, with a wet bar and terrace offering panoramic views. A second detached master suite has its own kitchen and luxury bath. There’s also a two-bedroom Guest House with full bath. Whatever the price, the compound—and its views—will go to the highest bidder.
