Aug 1, 2013

ASPEN, Colo., Aug. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- New York-based Concierge Auctions is pleased to announce this week's successful auction of Le Grande Vues that, when closed, will mark the firm's 5th successful closing in the Aspen market in the last two years.  The property is a gorgeous and private estate nestled high atop Red Mountain. Ideal for both indoor and outdoor entertaining, Le Grande Vues offers 9,537 total finished square feet of spacious living, gorgeous landscaping and tremendous views of the surrounding mountain peaks – all mere minutes to the skiing, shopping and dining in the renowned city of Aspen.

"After working with Concierge Auctions on several consecutive, successful sales, I see the auction route as a very worthwhile opportunity for the right sellers with the right properties," stated listing agent, Joshua Saslove. "Once again, the Concierge team was extremely professional and organized, and the result was a very positive transaction for both the buyer and the seller."

Concierge Auctions' global marketing campaign generated over 13,400 website visits from 66 U.S. regions (led by Colorado and Texas) and 16 international countries (led by United States and Canada). A total of 507 prospects were identified and 8 bidders participated in the sale. The estate is selling to an out of state bidder and was represented by Mark Haldeman with Aspen Snowmass Sotheby's International Realty.

"I believe the auction process assisted me in meeting the real estate investment objectives of a long term client," stated Haldeman.  "The Concierge team and auction was first-class and professional from the initial marketing materials, all the way down to the actual auction. I look forward to working with Concierge again in the near future."

Le Grande Vues' lush landscape is enveloped by eye-catching flowers, treed grounds and cascading streams and waterfalls, as well as massive decks with inspiring views and a lavish outdoor spa. The property sets the stage for luxury living in a breathtaking setting.

The focal point of Le Grand Vues at Red Mountain is its spectacular great room with magnificent stonework and grand windows that draw in picturesque scenes of the Elk Mountains. The gourmet kitchen has been thoughtfully designed for entertaining and is paired with a formal dining room that comfortably seats 10 guests. The master bedroom suite includes an expansive and lavish bathroom and a private deck overlooking the treed grounds. Additional amenities ensure a high level of convenience and comfort, including a security system, an elevator that easily accesses the home's three levels and a three-car garage.

Offering six bedrooms, six full and three half bathrooms, including a secluded wing for guests, Le Grande Vues at Red Mountain was designed for entertaining. The downstairs is built as the entertainment center with a full bar and a billiards table as well as a home theater. Brilliantly conceived, the floor plan accommodates gatherings both intimate and grand with an atmosphere of warmth and elegance.

Just mere minutes from downtown Aspen, home to the Aspen Music Festival, the Aspen Institute and the Food & Wine Classic, the community features a world-renowned ski resort and cultural center. The city is a year-round international destination that provides spectacular recreation, arts and business opportunities for residents and visitors alike.

"Continuing our momentum from last week's tremendous auction at Chaparral Ranch, this week's Aspen auction enhances and extends Concierge's reputation as the clear choice for leading brokers and high-net-worth sellers in the premier Rocky Mountain communities," stated Chad Roffers, Head of Client Services at Concierge Auctions.

We are looking forward to continuing this record throughout the region with our forthcoming August auction in Telluride, Colorado.
