2 Luxury Estates To Be Auctioned Nov. 21

Monday, November 4, 2013

New York City-based Concierge Auctions announced the without reserve auctions of two local estates: Mountain Modern on Missionary Ridge in Chattanooga and the Endless Views Estate in Emerald Pointe in Soddy Daisy. 

Mountain Modern on Missionary Ridge was previously offered for $4.8 million and will sell to the highest bidder during a live auction in cooperation with Jack Webb of Crye-Leike Realtors. The Endless Views Estate was previously offered for $2.4 million and will also sell to the highest bidder in cooperation with Katherine Smith of Keller Williams Realty. 

“We are excited to be announcing not just one, but two auctions of beautiful, one-of-a-kind estates in Tennessee," said Laura Brady, founder and managing director of Concierge Auctions.  "The market in Tennessee has been a stronghold for Concierge Auctions, as is evident from our recent sales in the area including the Peace of Heaven – On the Hill Estate in Kingsport, the Windy Hills Estate near Chattanooga and Villa Collina in Knoxville.  Our successes in the area have attracted the global attention of targeted, sophisticated buyers. Coupled with motivated sellers and the dedicated efforts of both our Concierge team and partnering listing agents, we look forward to two more successful sales at auction on Nov. 21.” 

Mountain Modern sits on the largest acreage available on top of Missionary Ridge. The home offers privacy and mountain and valley views, and is minutes away from downtown Chattanooga. Designed by Los Angeles architect Harold W. Levitt — who has created homes for the likes of film producer Steven Spielberg and actor Dean Martin — this Chattanooga home reflects the modern design philosophies seen throughout his work in mid-century L.A. The heart of the home, the solarium, features 30-foot-high glass ceiling, heated indoor swimming pool with diving board, reflecting pond, changing rooms with showers and a built-in gas grill and kitchen area, and is complete with mature live palm trees and foliage. This seven-room estate also features a lighted tennis court, putting green, circular garden area, landscaping and views of the Blue Ridge Mountains — all on five park-like acres. 

“I have been working in real estate in Chattanooga for 27 years, and I can honestly say that this is not only the most spectacular home that I have ever listed, but it is one of the most beautiful, remarkable homes in the metro-Chattanooga area,” stated Mr. Webb. “This home has a very comfortable family feel and is also outstanding for entertaining. I love that the property is located high up on the Missionary Ridge, which allows for complete privacy and beautiful scenic views, but is also only five minutes from the activities of downtown Chattanooga, which has undergone a tremendous renaissance the last couple of years.” 

In addition to the property in Chattanooga, Concierge Auctions is also auctioning the Endless Views Estate in Soddy Daisy. The two-acre property offers wooded waterfront views and year-round deep water access to Possum Creek and Lake Chickamauga — all less than half an hour away from Chattanooga. The estate is situated on two lots, nestled along the lake. The 6,756-square-foot log house can serve as either a family home or a weekend retreat. The estate offers a total of 16 rooms, five bedrooms and four full bathrooms. Handcrafted detail throughout, the Endless Views Estate has water views from almost every room. Located in the subdivision of Emerald Bay, homeowners enjoy access to recreational facilities, including a 2,000-square-foot clubhouse with a swimming pool, and well-lit streets within the community. 

"This unique, beautifully-constructed log home, with gorgeous details throughout, is a remarkable property and set on a location that boasts the upmost in privacy and beauty,” stated Ms. Smith. “It is a privilege to be working with Concierge Auctions on the sale of this home because their auction process reaches potential buyers on a global scale and can target the clientele who would be interested in such a unique buying opportunity.”

The auctions of both Mountain Modern on Missionary Ridge, located at 240 South Crest Road in Chattanooga, and the Endless Views Estate, located at 1997 Emerald Pointe Dr. in Soddy Daisy, will be held live on Nov. 21.  Mountain Modern on Missionary Ridge will be open for preview daily from 2-4 p.m. and by appointment. The Endless Views Estate will be open for preview daily from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. and by appointment. See Auction Terms and Conditions for full details.
