JACKSON, Wyo., Sept. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- New York-based Concierge Auctions is pleased to announce the pending sale of the Riva Ridge Preserve – an extraordinary, 118-acre estate poised 800-feet above the valley floor. The perfect locale for the coveted Teton lifestyle, the property is immersed in the beauty and wildlife of the mountains, while only 15 minutes from the Jackson Hole Airport, the town of Jackson, Teton Village and the world-renowned Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. The estate went under contract to the highest bidder in cooperation with Julie Faupel of Jackson Hole Real Estate Associates, an exclusive affiliate of Christie's International Real Estate. The buyer was represented by Ian Osler of Jackson Hole Sotheby's International Realty.

"It's been a distinct pleasure to partner with Concierge Auctions again on another successful transaction in Jackson Hole," stated Faupel. "As some of the top producing brokers in the Teton Region, we feel total confidence in the marketing services that Concierge provides. Through our joint efforts, we brought the market to this incredible and unique property and produced the most optimum result possible for our seller."

Concierge Auctions' global marketing campaign generated over 40,000 website visits from 48 U.S. states (led by Texas, Wyoming, New York and California) and 49 international countries (led Canada, the UK, Australia and Brazil). A total of 607 prospects were identified and 11 bidders participated in the sale.

At the top of Riva Ridge, enclosed by a rustic log gate, the property is perfectly landscaped with aspen groves, ponds, creeks, and waterfalls, and set against a majestic mountain horizon. Among the estate's many attributes are a 13,721-square-foot, five-bedroom, nine-bath main house that evokes the feel of a national park lodge; a one bedroom, one bath annex perfect for a caretaker or guest apartment; and a 3,850-square-foot, four-bedroom guest house.

Jackson Hole is a 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 Grand Teton National Park, as well as winding rivers, glacial lakes and ample wildlife from the pronghorn antelope to the grizzly bear. Teton County encompasses 97-percent of protected land for generations to come.

"Today's auction, of arguably one of the most spectacular estates in the country, was thrilling," stated Laura Brady, President of Concierge Auctions. "Eleven highly-qualified bidders participated, including CEOs, business owners and entrepreneurs from seven different states — Nevada, Florida, Missouri, New York, Wyoming, Nebraska and California. As our 13th successful auction in Jackson Hole, and in keeping with a number of notable and record sales we have produced in the Rocky Mountain region, this transaction leaves no doubt to the power of our platform."
