Platinum Luxury Auctions is a market-leading auction firm specializing in the non-distressed sale of multimillion-dollar properties nationwide. The firm’s principals have closed more than $350 million in luxury real estate auction sales, and have consulted on more than $1.25 billion in additional luxury properties.
Next up the firm is offering two luxurious, mountaintop estates located in the towns of Boone and Blowing Rock, North Carolina in August, 2014. Vincent Properties, a family owned real estate company with 25 years of experience dealing with distinguished mountain homes, is the cooperating North Carolina listing brokerage for both transactions.
“We’re excited to be returning to western North Carolina this year, following our success in the summer of 2013 with a $2 million sale inValle Crucis, which established the second highest sale in the market area within the past three years,” said Trayor Lesnock, president of Platinum Luxury Auctions. “Between a stately manor on 9 acres and a beautifully crafted mountain estate on 32 acres, these properties appeal to the varying tastes of luxury mountain home buyers. And the prices are certainly right,” he added.
On August 1, 2014, Platinum will offer an impressive, Bob Timberlake signature home within the Timber Ridge at the Coves development in Boone, NC. Previously offered for $3.2 million, the 6,500 sq. ft. property offers 32 acres of wooded privacy, and will now sell to the highest bidder at or above the auction’s reserve price of $1 million.
On August 2nd in the neighboring town of Blowing Rock, a 9-acre estate known as Chateau Chanson du Vent, or Song of the Wind, will also be sold to the highest bidder at or above $1 million. Previously offered for $2.6 million, the 5,500 sq. ft., Williamsburg-style estate includes a 720 sq. ft. guesthouse.
The Boone estate and its surrounding development are endorsed by Bob Timberlake, an internationally acclaimed artist hailing fromNorth Carolina who has become famous for his natural landscape paintings and a rustic yet luxurious mountain design aesthetic. The residence offers 4 bedrooms, 4 full and 1 half bath, a two-car garage, and 3 levels of luxury living. Additional features include a two-story grand salon with a custom crafted stone fireplace, a gourmet kitchen, vast master suite, and vaulted ceilings with exposed cedar beams. There is also 3,500 sq. ft. of outdoor decking, including a summer kitchen, barbeque, fireplace, and wet bar.
Departing from the “luxury log cabin” aesthetic, the Blowing Rock estate is a Williamsburg-style mansion with formal interiors accented by chandeliers, custom built-ins, and fireplaces. The estate has 4 bedrooms, 3 full and 1 half bath, 2 living rooms, spacious office, master suite with multiple walk-in closets, two-story foyer, and a handsome eat-in kitchen. A separate guesthouse adds 720 sq. ft., 1 bedroom and 1 bath. The 9-acre property has a large outdoor patio that is perfect for entertaining, and for enjoying the town’s renowned 4th of July firework display.
Just a two-hour drive from Charlotte, the towns of Boone and Blowing Rock are well known for their serene, carefree lifestyle. Boone, dubbed by journalists as the “ultimate outdoor adventure destination,” offers hiking, horseback riding, kayaking and canoeing during the summer months, and boasts the greatest concentration of ski resorts in both the mid-Atlantic and southern United States during the winter season.
Blowing Rock, named “the prettiest small town in North Carolina,” has only two stoplights. Despite its small size, the town offers residents top-quality restaurants, hotels, golf courses and entertainment, as well as the Blowing Rock Equestrian Preserve, which consists of 25 miles of open riding trails.
