The impeccably designed family compound of millionaire Ross Garber – wine aficionado, race car enthusiast and notable tech entrepreneur who co-founded Vignette Corporation, an Austin, TX-based software company, which sold in 2009 for $310 million – hits the auction block next month through industry leader Concierge Auctions. Mr. Garber and his wife are selling their $16.9 million home on May 27 to the highest bidder regardless of price. A perpetual innovator and driving force of Austin’s technology scene, Garber followed Concierge Auctions for two years and spent months researching auction methodology prior to hiring the firm for this assignment.
The Austin mansion is a 14,000-square-foot complete estate surrounded by 400 acres of protected canyon, located in what is arguably the country’s most growing city. This massive estate was designed to the Garber’s taste including an underground 2,400 bottle wine cellar, a tennis court, standalone gym, two outdoor grilling stations, a full outdoor kitchen, a 50-foot edge infinity-edge pool, pool house, 10-car, conditioned garage and more.
