PA’s Picks – We’re Looking at Luxury Again

August 15th, 2011 by Ori Klein

We’ve got our eye on some beauties up for auction this week.

Take a look at Tranzon’s September 22nd auction in Purchase, NY. Referred to as “one of the finest country mansions in Westchester County” by the New York Times, we love this property for its no-nonsense class. With an all-copper bar in the card room, wide mahogany doors with bronze hinges, and a library that boasts hand-carved oak paneling imported from England, you can only imagine the craftsmanship that went into the fine detailing of this estate. Tucked away on over 8 lush acres, the property was designed by the legendary New York architecture firm of McKim, Mead & White. Encompassing 48 rooms that amount to approximately 14,000 square feet of living space, the mansion comes with a four-car garage, pool, gazebo, 2 staff cottages, wine cellar and 10 fireplaces, just to name a few of its charms.

For those who are looking for a little less space but equal top-notch quality, check out Last Bid Real Estate’s 10,700 square foot mansion in Irons, Michigan. Built in 2001 by a German engineer with over 1.5 million dollars invested, the lucky owner will be pampered with an indoor pool, sauna, hot tub, and a beautifully designed kitchen with granite and coriander countertops. We picked this one for its impeccable woodwork and masonry, exhibiting the meticulous attention to detail that went into the mansion’s construction. Sitting on a 10-acre lot with a 6-stall garage, the property will be auctioned on September 1st.
