Diamond Villa, an ultra-contemporary residence listed at 4.5 million euros ($4.99 million) that seems to rise from the hills of the Croatian island of Korčula, will go up for auction next month without reserve.
Bidding on the complex, which overlooks the Adriatic Sea, will begin online and by phone on April 21, according to Concierge Auctions, which is handling the sale in cooperation with listing agent Antonio Barić of Move. Croatia. As with no-reserve sales, the property will go to the highest bidder regardless of price.
The 3,875 square foot Diamond Villa, which has three floors, five bedrooms and seven bathrooms, includes two adjoining units. Mansion Global could not confirm how long the house has been on the market.
“It’s a contemporary architectural masterpiece,” said Laura Brady, founder and CEO of Concierge Auctions. “It’s perfect for entertaining and getting away from it all in the Croatian countryside.”
Accessed by a gated entrance, the Double Residences sit on a quarter acre that includes a pair of infinity pools and two outdoor barbecue areas with lounging and dining areas.
The pristine white villa, which resembles an avant-garde geometric sculpture, has an open-plan design and amenities worthy of a five-star resort.
Walls of sliding glass doors that open onto the terrace define the spaces. The chef’s kitchen has sleek cabinetry and is anchored by a center island with bar seating that feels right at home in a modern art museum. And the master suite, which is defined by walls of glass, has a private terrace and a spa-style tub with an outdoor tub.
The island of Korčula, with a population of only around 5,600, is known for its natural beauty and laid-back lifestyle as well as its Michelin-starred restaurants.
The auction listing indicates that Diamond Villa is a three-minute drive from the city center, about five kilometers from the catamaran ferry that serves the cities of Split and Dubrovnik, and less than three kilometers from the marina.
