For the first time in its 280-year history, Sotheby’s London auction house hosted an auction featuring luxury real estate on May 30, Sotheby’s Concierge Auctions announced.

The inaugural “Exceptional Global Estates” sale was also streamed live on conciergeauctions.com and sothebys.com, and 83 percent of lots were sold, with more than $160 million in total bids placed.

Nearly 200 attendees attended the event where 30 potential luxury property buyers from North America, Europe and Asia submitted offers individually and through teams of specialists who attended in person and online.

Frank Trunzo, Senior Auctioneer at Sotheby’s Concierge Auctions, and Michael Macaulay, Vice President of Contemporary Art and Leading Auctioneer at Sotheby’s London, led the auction.

The auction was part of Sotheby’s “The Luxury Sales” series, which will be held in Hong Kong, London, Paris and New York until the end of the year, and also included works of art, jewelry, watches, designer bags and further.

“Tonight, we are honored to make history once again and celebrate another monumental achievement with Sotheby’s in London, as the first time luxury real estate decks have been placed on the auction stage of the renowned auction house in its 280 years of history in Europe,” said Krystal. Aeby, president of Sotheby’s Concierge Auctions, said in a statement.

“Our global sales continue to be our most sought-after events,” Aeby continued. “Following our groundbreaking sale in Hong Kong, our inaugural sale in London is a testament to the strength of our platform, reach, dedication to excellence and our commitment to breaking barriers as a leader in our industry.”

The featured auction item of the evening was Castle Migdale, an estate located just outside the Hudson Valley town of Millbrook. The 1927-built property was built for Andrew Carnegie’s daughter and sits on nearly 200 acres of land. Designed in a European style, the renovated estate spans 34,000 square feet, has 29 rooms and features views of the Catskills.

Migdale Castle sold for $8.96 million in cooperation with co-listing agent Heather Croner of Heather Croner Real Estate Sotheby’s International Realty.
