Concierge Auctions to sell 128-acre 'GreatViews' estate in Vermont
Set at an elevation of 1,400 feet, the property features 40-mile views overlooking the famed Green Mountains
Sep 3, 2014
SHARON, Vt., Sept. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Concierge Auctions, a luxury real estate auction firm serving high-net-worth individuals worldwide, today announced the October 7th auction of GreatViews, an expansive property featuring 360-degree mountaintop views in beautiful Sharon, Vermont. The auction will be conducted in cooperation with Story Jenks of Landvest, an exclusive affiliate of Christie's International Real Estate.
"GreatViews is one of the most beautiful pieces of property I have experienced. It has secluded roads, total privacy, and a stunning contemporary design that lets in spectacular light and gives the house a feeling of openness and serenity," said the seller. "As for its namesake, GreatViews offers a 40-mile panorama of the mountains. If you've ever dreamed of living atop the clouds, this is the home for you."
Indeed, Van Gogh, Cezanne, and Monet may have captured the greatest landscapes of the 19th and 20th Centuries, but a 21st Century painter would be hard-pressed to find a more eligible canvas subject than the scenery that lies in the backyard of GreatViews. The landscape's perennial evolution allows owners to watch the leaves turn with each season.
At GreatViews, residents can enjoy a relaxing role as passive spectators of the transcendent beauty unfurling before their eyes, or they can get in on the action and become a part of the treasured scenery. With a heated pool and two spas, as well as miles of trails for hiking and mountain biking, the grounds at GreatViews are a recreational playground. Plus, immediately beyond the boundaries of the property lie limitless public trails, breathtaking road biking routes, and lovely rivers and streams where kayaking and fishing are all in a day's activities. A mere twenty minutes from West Lebanon Airport, GreatViews is also a short drive away from ski resorts including Stowe, Killington, and Stratton.
"At Concierge Auctions, we were extremely impressed with GreatViews' potential to serve both as an idyllic homestead, and as a nature-lover's getaway," said Laura Brady, Founder and President of Concierge Auctions. "Situated just 2 hours from Boston and 3 hours from Montreal, GreatViews is at once easily accessible and completely removed from the worries of the world."
While GreatViews' surroundings are breathtaking, the home's luxurious interior is so comfortable and relaxing that it can compete on its own terms for residents' time. The 5,685-square-foot private residence, separate apartment, and 4,000-square-foot guest house feature 7 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms, which make it the ultimate place to entertain friends and family.
The home's customized details, such as its cathedral mahogany ceilings and extraordinary marble finishes, serve as a perfect dioramic frame for an intimate cocktail hour or large dinner party. For less formal affairs, the gabled porch off the kitchen features a fieldstone fireplace and grill, which are perfect for a summertime gathering, or even a s'mores-making powwow for the young ones.
"What makes GreatViews exceptional is the transparency between the inside and outside spaces. Right off the kitchen, you can be outside under the gabled open deck with mountain views, or from the master bedroom to an Ipe deck stretching over a dramatic ravine," said Jenks. "What's more is that the next owner will benefit from all the property has to offer practically from the moment the gavel comes down, since a top-notch property manager, who knows the land like the back of his hand, lives next door."
The auction of GreatViews, located at 1095 Eastman Road in Sharon, Vermont, will be held live on October 7th. A 2.5% commission is offered to the buyer's representing broker. The property is available for preview daily from 1-4pm by appointment. See Auction Terms and Conditions for full details. For more information, call (212) 257-5016.
