Convergence Of Luxury Real Estate, Collectible Cars, Jewels, Handbags And More Distinguishes Automotive Week In Pebble Beach, California

Annual showcase sponsored by Christie’s International Real Estate with Affiliates Luxe Platinum Properties, Special Properties RES and Hilton & Hyland

PEBBLE BEACH, CA – The legendary Pebble Beach Automotive Week, culminating in the world renowned Concours d’Elegance - showcasing the finest in vintage and collectible automobiles - was again sponsored in part by Christie’s International Real Estate and three of their exclusive real estate Affiliates. Participating were Luxe Platinum Properties in Portland, Oregon; Special Properties in New Jersey, and Beverly Hills-based Hilton & Hyland. Extraordinary real estate took center stage, along with jewels and handbags from Christie’s Private sales and of course the world’s most magnificent cars, all set on the picturesque 18th fairway at Pebble Beach.

The Christie’s International Real Estate network’s welcoming venue for Automotive Week was a suite alongside its partner Rolls Royce in a sensational seaside villa overlooking the ocean and the lodge and golf course at Pebble Beach. The real estate and luxury goods lounge was elegantly appointed with a video montage and marketing collateral - Luxury Defined, the annual state of the global luxury market issued by Christie’s International Real Estate; the yearly Luxury Edition, a glossy magazine of the network’s most exquisite properties; the award-winning quarterly real estate and lifestyle magazine, plus a booklet with properties specially curated to appeal to the car enthusiast. Interested homebuyers consulted privately with the luxury specialists of Christie’s International Real Estate.

Christie’s Jewelry, Watches and Handbag Private Sales were also on hand with items on elegant display, including The Yellow Rose, a fancy vivid yellow diamond of 77.12 carats.

Christie’s International Real Estate also had a lounge at Sunday’s Grand Finale, the Concours d’Elegance vintage auto show, held on the 18th fairway of Pebble Beach Golf Links, which drew 204 cars from 15 countries and 31 states. The event’s invited guests, dressed in finery in keeping with the red carpet at the Kentucky Derby, were invited to view the ultimate in real estate, sip champagne and stroll among the artistically restored cars parked on a bluff above the Pacific’s crashing surf.

The 1929 Mercedes Benz S Barker Tour owned by noted collector Bruce McCaw won the competition’s best in show.

“As its name suggests, this event truly defines the ultimate in elegance and sophistication – a perfect venue to display the caliber of real estate which sets our network apart. We were thrilled to return with our esteemed Affiliates, collaborating with luxury brand Rolls Royce and our Christie’s colleagues to create a unique and highly personalized event to showcase and celebrate all these beautiful luxury asset classes – cars, jewels and homes - in Pebble Beach.”
