Featuring a 15,173-square-foot main residence and a 2,000-square-foot guest home, this Mediterranean estate built by award-winning Katz Builders, Inc. is set in the ideal location for the central Texas golf or water sports aficionado. No less than seven area courses are within a short 20-minute drive, including the spectacular Ben Crenshaw designed, Austin Golf Club. Additionally, fine dining, shopping, and quick access to the beautiful Texas Hill Country are just outside your door.

"I was on-site nearly every day for four years during the construction of this home. We built every inch — from imported finishes to top-of-the-line technology — to the highest of standards. It's a casual, but elegant home, and great for entertaining. We've hosted over 600 people here at once," said current owner Clay Cipione. "But I'm now reorienting my life, and it's time for me to move on and let someone else enjoy it as much as we did."

Enjoy spectacular sunsets while sipping cocktails poolside, or relax in the shade of a breezy covered patio. No need to venture out to see the newest flick. Your own private theater — complete with comfy seating for eight — is at your disposal any time the mood strikes. Details and amenities abound inside and out — Italian marble, distressed oak floors, architectural elements, and water features galore.

"I worked with Concierge on last year's sale of the M Mansion in Dallas, and I've represented buyers in a number of their other auctions," stated Healy. "Concierge only accepts the finest properties, and I'm excited to find success with them again on the sale of Villa de Soleil."

"In Austin, where demand for luxury real estate is high, but inventory is low, the auction model is the smart choice for sophisticated buyers," said Laura Brady, Founder and President of Concierge Auctions. "Now conducting our 10th auction in Texas, Concierge Auctions is proud to partner with Rogers Healy to find the right owner for this truly one-of-a-kind estate."  

The auction of Villa de Soleil, located at 19544 Sandcastle Drive in Spicewood, Texas, will be held live on August 21st. A 2.5% commission is offered to the buyer's representing broker. The property is open daily from 1-4pm and by appointment. See Auction Terms and Conditions for full details. For more information, call (212) 259-0519.
