Custom-Built, Tuscan-Inspired Estate in Suburban NJ Heads to Luxury Auction® Dec 14th

Platinum Luxury Auctions and Kienlen Lattmann Sotheby’s International Realty have announced the upcoming luxury auction® of a Tuscan-inspired estate nestled in the suburbs of Warren, New Jersey. The custom-built home, named Villa di Sogni (“House of Our Dreams”) by its owners, will be sold to the highest bidder without reserve at a live auction scheduled for December 14th, 2019 on the property site. The estate was previously listed for $7.9 million, though it was designed and built at a cost in excess of $12 million.

After deciding to spend less time in New Jersey, the homeowners retained Platinum to conduct the luxury auction sale in cooperation with listing brokerage Kienlen Lattmann, represented by principal and broker Michael Lattmann.

“Michael has proven to have an exceptional ability to identify special properties in his marketplace that may require the unique sales approach presented by the luxury auction process, and we’re excited to be working with his team to offer Villa di Sogni to the global marketplace,” stated David Ashcroft, Platinum’s Managing Director.

The luxury real estate auction house has worked with Lattmann’s brokerage on several previous occasions, selling multimillion-dollar homes in areas such as Basking Ridge and elsewhere in Warren.
