SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, Calif., Feb. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- New York-based Concierge Auctions is pleased to announce the March 18th auction without reserve of El Rancho del Rio, a unique ranch compound offering premier privacy, yet conveniently located minutes from the heart of Orange County. The estate features impressive accommodations including a main hacienda, three guest casitas, a guest house with fully-stocked lake, a Ranch Manager's home, and extensive equestrian facilities.

"I have over 25 years of experience selling some of California's most beautiful properties, and El Rancho del Rio is by far the most stunning and largest estate I've had the opportunity to work on," stated Pridgen. "The location is extremely secluded, behind closed gates with a semi-private road, and the property itself is beautifully detailed. The main house, guest house, Ranch Manager's house, barns, and stables have all been redone with very high-quality finishes. The interiors are all five-star, comparable to a luxury hotel. El Rancho del Rio is a tranquil paradise that offers a very top-of-line equestrian lifestyle."

Encompassing the largest available residential acreage in all of Orange County, El Rancho del Rio is situated in total privacy on a lush valley floor flanked by hills and views to the ocean. The entire property has been renovated with meticulous detail. In the heart is a mission-style tower, three separate guest casitas and the main house. The four-bedroom, four full and two half-bathroom main house offers everything from a spacious commercial-grade kitchen to an expansive entertainment wing. The home also includes a large den and game room with a fireplace, as well as a formal dining room that seats up to 25.

Outside, the property has its own vineyard, helipad and equestrian amenities — five paddocks, two barns with 24 total stalls, corrals, open pastures and miles upon miles of trails. 

"El Rancho del Rio is the most beautiful, peaceful and serene place I've ever been in my life," stated seller Oscar Schwartz. "In addition to the beauty of the estate itself, the location makes it even better — minutes from Newport Beach and Laguna Beach and very convenient to downtown San Juan Capistrano."

"Concierge Auctions has successfully sold premier properties across the globe, but we have specialized expertise with luxury ranches such as this one," stated Laura Brady, Managing Director of Concierge Auctions. "El Rancho del Rio is one of California's most stunning ranch estates and simply can't be replicated. This auction is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity."

The auction of El Rancho del Rio, located at 33300 Ortega Highway in San Juan Capistrano, California, will be held live on March 18th. A 2% 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.
