Two exclusive homes go on sale in US

Two exclusive residences will go under the hammer this month in the US through leading global firm Concierge Auctions.

The first one is Hacienda de la Paz, a 51,000-sq-ft home in Rolling Hills, California. This property overlooks the city of Los Angeles at the crest of Palos Verdes Peninsula and is the only residence in the Americas designed by award-winning Spanish architect Rafael Manzano Martos.

Originally listed at $53 million, the home will sell without reserve in cooperation with Jade Mills of Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate and Jason Oppenheim of The Oppenheim Group. The live, onsite auction will take place on July 26.

The 7.4-acre compound, which took 17 years to build, comprises nine bedrooms; 25 bathrooms; a state-of-the-art gourmet kitchen; a 10th century, 10,000-sq-ft Moorish hammam spa; indoor pool, grand ballroom; indoor tennis court; Renaissance inspired, hand painted chapel; and an English library styled after a 19th century gentleman’s club with flooring crafted from 800-year-old river recovered logs; a 15,000-sq-ft, 18th-century neoclassical ballroom; gym; yoga room; wine cellar and more catering facilities.

Interior details include handcrafted interlocking ceilings; plush carpets; custom draperies and furnishings; and hand-picked building materials from Spain, Italy, Portugal, and Morocco.

Outdoor luxuries include Moorish gardens and fountains; groves of olive trees; a bocce court; red clay tennis court; infinity edge pool with jetliner views of Los Angeles; a guesthouse with maid and staff quarters; and equestrian and hiking trails. Additionally, there is a six-car garage and motor court with handcrafted limestone driveways.

The other property is in Miami - a 36th floor residence in the renowned Porsche Design Tower – a rare offering that includes a robotic car elevator that brings its residents up via a sky garage.

Along with the three-story lobby with a glass car observatory, there are glass entry/exit rooms for automobile transfer to the car elevator.
