Christie's Previews Its American Art Collection at Walt Danley Realty French Manor in Scottsdale for an Evening of Art and Luxury Real Estate

Arizona's Affiliate of Christie's International Real Estate, Walt Danley Realty, Partnered With Christie's Auction House to Host a Sneak Peek of the American Art Collection That Will Be on Sale May 21 in New York

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - April 22, 2015) - Walt Danley Realty, Arizona's exclusive affiliate of Christie's International Real Estate, hosted a preview with Christie's last week that showcased two private art collections at a luxury estate in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Five magnificent paintings were on display. Two of the works are among 69 to be sold in "Visions of the West: American Paintings from the William I. Koch Collection," and three paintings will be part of the spring American Art auction. Both sales will take place Thursday, May 21, 2015 in New York.

"My team and I are proud to partner with Christie's in putting together an exciting sneak peak at two springtime art sales," said Walt Danley, president of Walt Danley Realty. "Through our affiliation with Christie's International Real Estate, we are able to access a global network of partners in both art and luxury real estate."

The event was held at a French-estate in Arcadia, an affluent neighborhood in the shadow of iconic Camelback Mountain in Scottsdale, which is listed with Walt Danley Realty for $7,250,000. The five bedroom, eight bathroom, 9,221 square foot home was the perfect backdrop to the breathtaking exhibit. This Mark Candelaria-designed estate rivals the most exquisite homes in Europe. The property enchants from the moment you enter its lush grounds. Manicured Berghoff landscaping, imported French limestone patios and antique imported fountains create a truly breathtaking exterior. Inside, no detail has been overlooked, from beautiful millwork and ironwork to custom doors, plastered walls, French stone and wood flooring.
