AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- New York-based Concierge Auctions is pleased to announce the February 12th auction without reserve of Casa Santuario, a one-of-a-kind, five-acre estate with a Spanish mission-style home surrounded by towering live oaks, flowering olive trees and gorgeous views of Lake Austin. Designed by renowned architect Paul Lamb, the stunning property is an elegant nod to the 1920s Spanish-Colonial homes along the Pacific coast. Originally offered for $15 million, Casa Santuario will sell to the highest bidder in cooperation with Jeannette Spinelli of Austin Portfolio Real Estate and Kyle Crews of Allie Beth Allman & Associates, an exclusive affiliate of Christie's International Real Estate.
"I have been very fortunate to have had many opportunities working with beautiful and unique homes in my career; however, Casa Santuario is so much more than just a gorgeous home, it is an experience that envelops you as soon as you enter. Every aspect of the home is like a work of art," stated Spinelli. "I have never seen a property that embodies all the details of design and a passion for architecture and art the way this home does. As you walk through each room, the experience deepens and the story of the home becomes more meaningful. It is like a gift every time you turn a corner."
With five bedrooms, five full and three half bathrooms, the 9,729-square-foot home is divided into public spaces for entertaining and private spaces for family living. The front door, in keeping with the understated design, sits quietly along the back wall of the courtyard. The home opens into a cozy sitting area and bar, where low double-barrel ceilings magnify the thickness of the plaster walls and accentuate the openness of the soaring, light-filled living room and the airy veranda just outside. Above sits a charming, intimate guest suite, with a small sitting area overlooking the living room, a private bathroom and bedroom.
The dining room mirrors the double-barrel ceiling in the sitting area. The room is flanked by two walls of windows -- one looking onto the courtyard, the other with full views of the back acreage, with its rolling lawn and a stone fence before it hits a thicket of natural Texas vegetation.
The bedrooms continue the home's refined elegance and approachable space. The master suite is arrestingly beautiful, with floor-to-ceiling windows, which frame the corner of the room and open onto a balcony. Two additional bedrooms with en suite bathrooms include built-in closets with the same chevron design used throughout the house. A third bedroom, just off the master suite, could also act as a private office or knitting room.
"The design and construction of Casa Santuario is superb. From the solid wood matched oval topped doors to the three-step plaster walls, this home evokes the true character of a Spanish colonial estate from a bygone era, yet has all the conveniences of modern technology," stated Crews. "The location, the views and the privacy afford the new owners a one-of-a-kind purchase opportunity -- just minutes from all that makes Austin, Texas one of the most desirable cities in the country."
Transformed from its early vibe as a hippie college town, Austin has turned into one of the most vibrant, desired places to live in the entire country. Long known as the live music capital of the world, this city is now recognized for its booming tech industry and business-friendly climate, farm-to-table food scene and high quality of life. It's been ranked "Best Place for Business and Careers," "Best City for Relocating Families" and "Best City for Singles."
"The Texas market is one of the healthiest in the country, and Austin is consistently a favorite for families, businesses, musicians, art enthusiasts, and more," stated Laura Brady, Managing Director at Concierge Auctions. "As one of the most premier properties in the city, with an unheard-of five contiguous acres and an owner who is fully committed to selling, this opportunity to purchase Casa Santuario is rare indeed."
The auction of Casa Santuario located at 2600 Kenmore Court in Austin, Texas, will be held live on February 12th. A 3% commission is offered to the buyer's representing broker. The property will be open for preview daily from 1-4pm and by appointment. See Auction Terms and Conditions for full details.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
