TELLURIDE, Colo., July 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Following the successful sales last week in Telluride, Colorado of an architectural masterpiece known as the Pa Gomo estate, and a ski-in/ski-out luxury cabin, NYC-based Concierge Auctions is pleased to announce four new opportunities to own ski residences within the upscale community See Forever Village, two of which will sell Without Reserve to the highest bidder. All of the properties are turnkey furnished, new construction, come with extensive amenities offered by The Peaks Resort & Spa, can be used either personally or as vacation rentals, and will sell at auction on September 8th in cooperation with T.D. Smith of Telluride Real Estate Corp.

"See Forever Village is an exclusive community and maintains the highest value per square foot for Mountain Village condominiums. The finish level and quality of design are unmatched," Smith stated. "I have always believed in the auction process as a way to efficiently connect buyers and sellers, and after witnessing Concierge's success in Telluride over the past month, that belief has only strengthened. These properties are amazing, and the seller is fully committed. It is now up to the buyers to determine what they are worth ­on September 8th."

The Condos: 117 Sunny Ridge Place units 127 and 128 will both be auctioned Without Reserve. Currently listed for $2.7 million, unit 127 contains 2,705 square feet with three bedrooms and four bathrooms. Unit 128 consists of 3,441 square feet, also with three bedrooms and four bathrooms. Currently listed for $3.2 million, its open library/den/study with a full bathroom could easily be converted into a fourth bedroom. The condominium building is adjacent to the resort and is a short, heated cobblestone walk from the ski slopes.

The Cabin: 152 Country Club Drive is a stand-alone, 3,296-square-foot cabin that enjoys magnificent mountain views of both the rugged San Sophia and Wilson ranges year-round. Ideal for use as a personal residence or a vacation rental property, this particular cabin is rented on average more than any other See Forever cabin because of its proximity to the Peaks and its floor plan. Custom-furnished in elegant mountain decor by world-renowned The Decorators Unlimited, the home boasts two master suites. Its last listing price was $3.9 million.

The Residence: Located at 160 Sunny Ridge Place, this magnificent residence is anchored on a ridge overlooking the Telluride Valley 800 feet below and boasts floor-to-ceiling glass, expansive entertaining and dining areas and views of the San Sophia Range. Currently listed for $8.9 million, the 8,760-square-foot home has five bedrooms, five bathrooms, two powder rooms and a distinctive, two-story great room, architecturally graced by a curved and heated fireplace wall. Additionally, there is a floating spiral staircase, a grand master suite with a laundry center and private deck and a dining patio with a built-in fireplace and BBQ.

All of the properties contain gas fireplaces, a gourmet chef's kitchen, a state-of-the-art communication system with high-speed wireless internet access and flat screen televisions and in-floor radiant heat. They are also all fully furnished, tucked among the aspen groves, spruce trees and native wildflowers abundant in the Telluride area.

See Forever Village is an exclusive ski-in/ski-out community located just steps away from Mountain Village and all of its amenities: upscale boutiques and restaurants, skiing, hiking, golfing, a fitness center and a newly-enhanced 42,000-square-foot spa. Residents enjoy rental management, ski valet, golf at the Telluride Golf Club, access to the Spa at The Peaks, home maintenance, and a complimentary, 12-minute gondola transportation system to the historic mining Town of Telluride.

"See Forever Village has successfully emerged from a fiscally sound construction project with a long-term ownership base, and The Peaks Resort and Spa at The Peaks management is now operating at its highest level since completion of construction," stated the seller and developer, John Abrams. "I'm confident that the Concierge Auctions process will result in an efficient sell-through at fair market value."

On July 12th, Concierge Auctions successfully sold Pa Gomo, a 10,000-square-foot estate in Telluride, artfully designed by RKD Architects, and See Forever Village Cabin 2, a 3,700-square-foot, stand-alone ski condominium in Mountain Village.

"Our recent sales in the area prove both Telluride's position as one of the most desirable mountain towns and our unique ability to direct that interest towards the most motivated sellers," stated Laura Brady, Vice President of Marketing for Concierge Auctions. "See Forever Village is an outstanding community and will benefit from new owners who will use and enjoy these homes and amenities."

Telluride and Mountain Village are located in the heart of San Miguel County, home to some of southwest Colorado's most amazing natural sites including Bridal Veil Falls -- the longest free-falling waterfall in Colorado -- and the Old Spanish Trail, a 1,200-mile historic route that started in Santa Fe, touched the Telluride region and continued on to Los Angeles. A free gondola, the only transportation system of its kind in North America, connects the two towns. Known for world-class alpine skiing and cultural events, Telluride and Mountain Village provide visitors the best of both worlds. Mountain Village offers a modern take on nature and features expansive views, world-class accommodations and convenient access to the slopes of Telluride Ski Resort during the winter months. Rooted in history, neighboring Telluride is a bustling ski town with clapboard storefronts house independent art galleries, old-time bars and delectable eateries.
