AuctionWorks has announced the firm will host an auction online November 13-15 that will include an approximately 8,658 square-foot home set on .62 acres in Burr Ridge, Ill. Buyers can bid online or submit pre-auction offers.

“High-end homes are an increasingly large percentage of our auctions as people seeking to retire and shed their family homes hire us to achieve a quicker sale that maximizes value,” said Diana M. Peterson, president of Northbrook-based AuctionWorks. “Our recent luxury home auctions have included a $2.3 million, non-distressed luxury home in Glencoe, Ill that sold in a thirty minute bidding war. Savvy home sellers are choosing our auction platform because it provides high visibility for their luxury homes and targeted marketing efforts customized to attract a qualified pool of serious and ready buyers.”

Built in 2005, the five bedroom, five full-bath and two half bath home on .62 acres at 20 Ambriance Drive, Burr Ridge, Ill, has a suggested opening bid of $2.1 million. It was previously valued at $3.4 million. The current owner purchased the home from the builder, Harry Liesenfelt of Provencal Construction. Liesenfelt, who originally built the home for his family, spared no expense and built it with the highest quality materials, great attention to detail, and top quality construction. According to Liesenfelt, the actual cost to build this home today, excluding builder mark up and land acquisition, would be at least $2.8 million.

Like new and barely lived in, this move in ready home features water views; an elevator; a two-story foyer with marble floors; soaring ceilings (many with beamed and tray detail); gourmet kitchen; first floor master suite with fireplace and spa bath; two-story great room with fireplace; walk-out lower level with full, second kitchen, 1,500+ bottle wine cellar, 12 seat custom home theatre, exercise room, family room with fireplace, recreation room, full service bar, bedroom with en-suite bath (perfect for guests, in laws or nanny), and a half bath; mechanicals including Lutron Home Works automated lighting system, Crestron automation and touch screens, generator, central vacuum system, 3 zoned forced air, multi-zone hot water heating and more; heated four-car garage; and outdoor entertaining areas including an expansive back deck and a lower level walkout stone paver patio overlooking the pond.

“Situated in a community that is home to many CEOs and other socially prominent residents who value the privacy of a truly secure, gated community, 20 Ambriance Drive offers the finest quality construction in a premier neighborhood,” Peterson said. “Expansive entertaining spaces throughout make it an ideal home for gatherings with family and friends in a very private, peaceful setting.”
