Concierge Auctions, a new company that conducts auctions of high end properties, recently completed their first auction in Scarsdale, selling 2 Coventry Court a home with a Larchmont address that is in the Scarsdale School district. The home sits on .91 acres and is 11,000 square feet with 7 full bathrooms and 3 half baths. It was listed last year for $4,995,000 but didn't sell and was taken off the market. On the tax roll it is valued at $5,175,000 and a similar house across the street sold for above $5 million to an embassy last year.
Though the sale price will not be disclosed until the closing, we asked Jacqueline Moldawer of Concierge Auctions some questions about the auction and here is what she shared:
How did the auction go?
The auction was a success. We conducted the bidding live, at the property, where 6 bidders, their representing agents, and others attendees from the community were invited to attend. The auction was active, with bidders both in the room and over the phone. It was very exciting.
Was there a lot of interest?
As you can imagine, there was a lot of curiosity and interest for our first auction in Westchester County, and we were appreciative of the support from the community. 2 Coventry was built by a well-known architect, on a private cul-de-sac street within Scarsdale School District. Proximity to New York City and two of the top golf courses in the Northeast made this home very desirable. We generated over 50 qualified showings in only 5 weeks and qualified 6 bidders to participate in the auction. The bidders came from the greater Westchester area, Connecticut, Delaware, Texas, and China.
How much above/below the reserve did it sell for?
The price will remain confidential until closing in mid-July. After that time, the sale price will be posted on our website: https://www.conciergeauctions.com/past-auctions
Do bidders have to provide information about their finances before making a bid?
Yes. In order to register for the auction, all interested bidders must (1) execute the Auction Terms & Conditions, (2) post a deposit of $100k into an escrow account, and (3) provide a bank letter confirming their ability to close in 30 days.
Anything else you want to add would be welcome.
I'd like to thank Leslie Dorf of Houlihan Lawrence in Scarsdale for her hard work and support throughout this process. Leslie was the listing agent for 2 Coventry and showed her dedication to both the clients and our process from start to finish. In addition, the greater Westchester agent community was warm and welcoming! I look forward to returning and working together in the future.
"Monte Nido" Home Sold
2 Morris Lane: In other news, the much discussed home at 2 Morris Lane has been sold for $2,700,000. The home was last listed at $3.9 million and the Monte Nido Corporation offered to purchase it in 2015 to open a treatment home for adolescent girls with eating disorders. After many controversial meetings and threats of lawsuits from neighbors to block the sale, Monte Nido withdrew their application and their bid to the buy the home which appears to have cost the owners over a million dollars. In 2015 the home was assessed at $5,349,000 and will be reduced by more than $2 million to $3,200,000 in the 2016 revaluation. Taxes were $130,000 and are now estimated to be $77,760.
