Concierge Auctions Announces The February 7th Auction Of A Private Island Estate In Fiji - Offering Every Luxury Possible And Located In One Of The Most Exclusive Places In The World

WAKAYA ISLAND, Fiji, Dec. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- New York-based Concierge Auctions is pleased to announce the February 7th auction without reserve of the exclusive and tranquil Lawedua estate on Wakaya Island, Fiji. Perched 150 feet above a private, white sand beach and offering unparalleled views of the Koro Sea, Lawedua is one of only five private estates on the island. As one of the most exclusive places in the world, this property has become a sought-after honeymoon escape for world travelers such as Bill Gates, Michelle Pfeiffer, Jim Carrey, and Celine Dion. Just steps away lies the ultra-luxurious and private Wakaya Club and Spa, where residents can enjoy five-star cuisine and exceptional opportunities for golf and tennis.

Lawedua is divided into two offerings: Residence 1 with guest house, which is currently listed for $12.99 million, and Residence 2 with guest house, which is currently listed for $6.99 million. The properties will sell to the highest bidders — either separately or together — during a live auction in cooperation with Philip Toogood of Bayleys, an exclusive affiliate of Christie's International Real Estate

"This is one of the most beautiful places in the world. It's like your own island paradise; a truly serene sanctuary," stated the seller, Mindy Stearns. "Words and pictures cannot describe what you feel when you are in Wakaya. This home has been a part of our family for years. It is where we fell in love, had our honeymoon, and baptized our children. It is a piece of heaven on Earth."

Sitting atop a volcanic peninsula overlooking Marau Bay, Lawedua was built into the rocks, purposely designed to look as if it was born from the land. Designed by the late Geoffrey Bawa, a renowned Sri Lankan architect widely credited with creating the design concept of "tropical modernism," the home blends the boundaries between outdoor and indoor living. Linda Garland, renowned interior designer and bamboo expert, designed the home's grand interior.

Keeping within Balinese style, the property is configured as a compound with a series of houses. The A-frame main house features a spacious kitchen with a large great room that extends out to a covered west-facing veranda. A dining pavilion and separate bathroom are adjacent to the main house. The master bedroom and a guest bedroom are ensconced in separate bures just a short walk through the volcanic rock gardens. Like every room on the property, each bedroom suite offers astounding ocean views.
