JACKSON HOLE, Wyo., May 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- New York-based Concierge Auctions is pleased to announce the July 12th auction Without Reserve of The Grand Teton Estate, ranked in the top three most spectacular ski homes in America by CNBC, just minutes from world-renowned skiing and snowboarding in the winter and unparalleled sightseeing, hiking and biking in the summer. Designed by premier Montana Architect Jonathan Foote, this rock and timber masterpiece is located on 10.63 heavily treed and very private acres near the base of the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. The architecturally-stunning estate offers 23,250+/- square feet of living and would be impossible to reproduce with today's building regulations. Originally offered for $32.5 million, The Grand Teton Estate will sell to the highest bidder in cooperation with Pamela Renner of Jackson Hole Sotheby's International Realty.
"This auction represents a rare opportunity to secure one of the finest homes in Jackson Hole without the limitations of the current building size restrictions. Today, Teton County allows only 8,000 square feet of habitable living space in contrast to the over 23,000 square feet this estate provides," stated Renner. "There is no other property in Teton County that offers what this property does — rare, expansive square footage on over 10 completely private gated acres, world-class amenities, and a premier location with spectacular views at the base of the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort."
Geographically unique, this estate sits atop a hill on the valley floor that is Jackson Hole. It is its own private world with easy access to the surrounding recreational activities, but completely secluded and nearly entirely hidden from most passersby.
Featuring antique timbers and stone walls, Foote created a majestic space amid the rugged landscape that is designed for both grand entertaining and intimate family living. A stunning and magnificent entry way contains 24,000 square feet of hand-laid pavers and lush landscaping. The interior of the home boosts seven bedrooms, seven full and two half bathrooms; a 12-seat theater designed by highly-acclaimed Central California Sound Engineer Keith Yates; a 4,000-bottle wine cellar with antique Italian door; a 1,200-square-foot, professionally-designed gym; a seven-car garage and four heated dog kennels.
The beauty of the outdoors is echoed throughout the interior. Massive stone walls, thick timbers, bronze top caps, Ipe hardwood floors, handcrafted chandeliers that mimic the thousands of flowers in the landscape, oversized windows framing incomparable views of the spectacular mountain ridges.
"As the first major house in Jackson Hole, originally built as it was becoming one of the great all-season watering holes in America, this property sets a standard of tasteful grandiosity while quietly blending in with the scale and power of the surrounding environment," stated Foote. "Concealed on entry, subtle and welcoming upon arrival, it walks softly on the land and among the vegetation that shelters it. Ancient materials and craftsmanship give it a timelessness which befits and enhances the extraordinary beauty of the Snake River Valley and the grandeur of the Tetons"
The community of Jackson Hole is a beautiful 48-mile-long valley surrounded by the Teton Mountains to the west and the Gros Ventre Mountains to the east. Yellowstone National Park is located less than 90 miles to the north. Within the valley sits 310,000 protected acres in the nearby Grand Teton National Park, as well as winding rivers, glacial lakes and ample wildlife, from the pronghorn antelope to the grizzly bear.
"It has been a wonderful experience raising my children in this home all these years," stated seller Kirk Roney. "The location has a unique set up of the best of both worlds – ultimate privacy nestled amongst the aspen and pine forest of our own hill teeming with wildlife, yet just minutes away from the esteemed ski resort. It is an absolutely fantastic property, and I hope the new owner will enjoy it as much as we have."
"Jackson Hole is one of the most desirable communities in the world, encompassing beautiful scenery, endless outdoor activities, and of course the tax-friendly atmosphere Wyoming is known for," stated Laura Brady, President of Concierge Auctions. "Having successfully sold 11 properties in the region since 2009, we know the Jackson Hole market well, and we understand a true opportunity when we see one. We're excited to again partner with Jackson Hole Sotheby's International Realty and to place The Grand Teton Estate with a new owner who will enjoy it as much as the Roneys have."
The auction of The Grand Teton Estate, located at 7555 Moose Wilson Road in Teton Village, Wyoming, will be held live on July 12th. A 2.5% commission is offered to the buyer's representing broker. The property is available for preview by appointment and will be open daily from 1 to 4pm beginning June 4th. See Auction Terms and Conditions for full details.
