1314 Napoleon Avenue, Unit 16

Previously listed for $3.49 million, this two-story condo within the historic St. Elizabeth complex in New Orleans will sell Without Reserve in cooperation with Rosy Wilson of Dorian Bennett Sotheby's International Realty. Comprised of 5,000 square feet, condo unit 16 offers an open floor plan featuring three bedrooms including a spacious master suite with walk-in closet; five bathrooms including a master bath with dual sinks, heated mirrors, and a 16-jet shower; seamlessly integrated living and dining areas; a state-of-the-art kitchen; butler's pantry; and wine room. Interior details include marble accents, hardwood floors, ample storage and high-end finishes.

Originally built in 1868, the St. Elizabeth served as a boarding school before being converted to an orphanage in 1870, in which it operated for over 100 years. In 2004, the building was transformed into upscale condos and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Victorian-style building now offers quintessential NOLA charm and modern luxury with 17-foot stained glass windows and 24-foot vaulted ceilings. Residents of the pet-friendly building enjoy community amenities including an in-ground pool, front and back galleries, various common areas, a courtyard, landscaped grounds, gated parking, and security. Located within walking distance to Magazine Street and the St. Charles streetcar line, the St. Elizabeth is perfectly situated to enjoy the city's annual Jazz & Heritage and Voodoo Festivals, and Mardi Gras, with easy access to restaurants, shops and multiple parks.

"The chance to own this esteemed property is a once-in-a-lifetime real estate experience due to its historical significance, architectural aesthetic, and ideal location in uptown New Orleans. Because of its uniqueness and importance, it is perfectly suited for this high-end real estate auction," stated Wilson.

For all these reasons and more, we expect the auction to attract true competition globally."

Marbella, Spain — Bidding Opens May 29th; Bidding Ends May 31st

El Martinete is a luxury beachfront villa situated in the sought-after Puerto Banus region of Marbella, Spain. Formerly owned by renowned Spanish Flamenco dancer Antonio El Bailarín, a close friend of Pablo Picasso, the villa offers the ideal home for entertaining.

Inspired by Renaissance architecture, the home consists of a grand foyer — complete with marble columns and molded ceilings — leading to a modern kitchen and reception rooms including a formal dining room with seating space for 20 people; an indoor pool with sauna; a bar; home office; and six luxuriously appointed bedroom suites in the main house. The home consists of four floors accessible via an elevator, leading to a rooftop terrace with kitchen, dining area, BBQ and hot tub, offering spectacular views.

Previously listed for €15million, El Martinete will sell Without Reserve to the highest bidder in cooperation with Diana Morales of Diana Morales Properties — Knight Frank.

"Beachfront properties are rare in this sought-after area of Southern Spain and beachfront villas offering this level of luxury living even more so," stated Charlie Smith, European advisor for Concierge Auctions. "El Martinete is truly unique. The buyer of the villa will not just be purchasing one of the region's most prestigious properties, but also a one-of-kind piece of art, in the unusual feature of the swimming pool with Pablo Picasso's signature."
