A unique Napa Valley home is set to be auctioned off on September 10th. The 22,882-square-foot Villa De Madre was originally listed at $22 million in 2011. Now the seller, Willis Johnson, founder of Copart, Inc., a publicly traded, global online vehicle auction company, is holding an auction instead. There is no word yet on whether the home suffered any damage in the earthquake that struck the Napa area on Sunday. The gated property in Suisun Valley includes nearly 80 acres, a caretaker’s house, three auto barns, and 63 acres of Cabernet vineyards.   The home itself has six bedrooms, eight baths, a game room, and indoor pool. Johnson is auctioning the estate off because he wanted to expedite to sale, according to the company auctioning off the home, Premiere Estates Auction.
