NEW YORK/ March 12, 2019 (STL.News)
Concierge Auctions has announced its March/early April lineup of top-tier properties featuring five properties currently listed for more than $15 million, most selling Without Reserve to the highest bidder. Available across seven U.S. states and six countries, the lineup includes three sprawling Floridian estates: a 14,000-square-foot minimalistic estate in Miami, a 20,623-square-foot estate previously owned by the late businessman and sports owner Wayne Huizenga in Fort Lauderdale, and an award-winning estate situated on property also previously owned by Huizenga in nearby Las Olas Isles; an 80-acre compound on the Central Coast of California; and a villa within the multi-award-winning flagship hotel and beach resort of the famed Aman Resorts in Phuket, Thailand. The upcoming auctions follow Concierge’s recent sale of Playa Vista Isle in Hillsboro Beach, Florida — previously known as one of the country’s most expensive listings at $159 million — which set the record for the highest sale ever achieved in the U.S. at auction.
The lineup also features a select collection of 12 properties as part of the firm’s March Sale, targeting buyers in China and greater Asia in partnership with media powerhouses The Wall Street Journal and Mansion Global. Bidding for these properties — the majority of which will sell Without Reserve — opens digitally beginning March 22nd. Buyers may bid from anywhere in the world via the firm’s global online marketplace, conciergeauctions.com.
Featured properties include:
41 Arvida Parkway — Miami, Florida (Bidding Open March 19th–22nd)
Currently listed for $68 million with bidding opening between $15 million–$30 million, the 14,000-square-foot minimalistic estate designed by Graciela Leanza is located outside Miami in the city of Coral Gables, surrounded by 574 feet of rare Biscayne Bay double-sided waterfrontage. Once noted as “the most expensive residential sale ever in Coral Gables” in 2014, the home has undergone a number of renovations to feature European finishings. The home includes a sleek designer kitchen with professional-grade appliances, pantry and breakfast room; a master sanctuary with ocean views, terrace access, custom-built dressing room, spa bath, custom marble vanity, and walk-in shower; a wet bar; executive office/library; a separate captain’s quarters adjacent to the dock; a nanny suite, and a five-car garage.
Outdoor features include tri-level terraces, an Estudio Arqué-designed pool and poolside lounge area, outdoor kitchen and covered dining, mature palms, and direct sunrise views. The property also includes a protected dock that can accommodate a 200± foot mega yacht. The nine-bedroom estate will sell furnished Without Reserve in cooperation with Marc Hameroff of Engel & Völkers.
“The auction presents a rare opportunity to own exclusive property of this size and magnitude in Coral Gables, with waterfront access on both sides of the home,” said Hameroff. “No detail was overlooked in creating this minimalistic masterpiece – it’s truly a one-of-a-kind contemporary oasis offering breathtaking views across Biscayne Bay.”
Tarpon Pointe | 1575 Ponce De Leon Drive — Fort Lauderdale, Florida (Bidding Open March 26th–28th)
Boasting more than 590 feet of rare river frontage with accommodations for an up to 135-foot mega yacht, the 20,623-square-foot Fort Lauderdale estate owned by the late Wayne Huizenga — founder of Blockbuster Video and co-owner of a trifecta of Florida sports teams including the Dolphins, Panthers and Marlins — is currently listed for $27 million and will sell Without Reserve in cooperation with Billy Nash of Nash Luxury at The Keyes Company as part of the firm’s March Sale.
Situated on nearly 1.5 acres, the 10-bedroom, five building compound named Tarpon Pointe offers 270-degree river and skyline views as well as cathedral ceilings, custom ironwork and finishes, and floor-to-ceiling windows with river and peninsula water views; a grand foyer with a crystal chandelier; a kitchen with a wood-burning pizza oven and a separate caterer’s kitchen; a French-inspired glass conservatory; a master suite with a lounging area; a guest apartment; elevator; gym; workshop; theater; billiards room; staff office; and multiple safe rooms.
“Mr. Huizenga is and always will be a true legend,” said Nash. “It’s an honor and privilege to be selling such an epic property on behalf of the family. This auction follows our successful sale on Key Biscayne, which garnered the area’s highest sale price in the last four years. I’m confident the Tarpon Pointe auction will do the same by attracting global buyers to this one-of-kind opportunity.”
Casa Bella Fortuna in Las Olas Isles | 534 Bontona Avenue — Fort Lauderdale, Florida (Bidding Open April 9th–12th)
Casa Bella Fortuna is an award-winning Las Olas Isles estate situated on property also previously owned by the late Huizenga.

The sale will consider accepting a portion of the final sale price via Bitcoin.
“Intracoastal properties like this are considered gems of Fort Lauderdale, offering more value than oceanfront,” stated Campins. “Known to attract, high-profile CEOs, tech entrepreneurs, hedge fund managers and music executives, the exclusive community of Las Olas epitomizes the luxe lifestyle.”
Completed in 2015, the estate was constructed by local entrepreneur and angel investor Jim Barnett, who purchased the property from Huizenga and was inspired to recreate the Doge’s Palace in Venice. Recipient of 13 architecture and design awards for its craftsmanship and landscaping, the 27-room estate features hand-painted murals by late Buckingham Palace artist Leonard Pardon; architectural details by famed architect Jeffrey W.
