The home, which has been named “Vision House,” was completed in early 2010 and has had no occupants. It was originally listed for sale at $13.98 million. In the auction, no minimum bid is required, said Laura Brady, vice president of marketing for New York-based Concierge Auctions, which is helping to market the property.“The process is similar to an auction of fine art,” Brady said. “All bidders will be pre-qualified. The auction will likely take 15 or 20 minutes.”
