Absolute Luxury Real Estate Auction in Vail Valley, Colorado Planned by Concierge Auctions on September 30
Cordillera estate of more than 11,000 square feet will sell to the highest bidder, regardless of price
Aug 27, 2010
Concierge Auctions will host a live, on-site luxury real estate auction of 50 Spring Creek Place, a magnificent Rocky Mountain estate located within the exclusive Club at Cordillera in the Vail Valley, one of the most sought after mountain destinations in the world. Originally listed for $9.5 million, the property is selling Absolute, meaning it will sell to the highest bidder, regardless of price. The September 30 sale is being conducted in cooperation with Suzi Apple of Gateway Land & Development.
"The Club at Cordillera is a crown jewel of the coveted Vail Valley - offering the utmost in luxurious amenities amidst secluded exclusivity," stated Apple. "50 Spring Creek Place is one of the finest homes that has ever been built in the entire Vail Valley in my 30 year career. This auction format presents an unprecedented opportunity for any buyer interested in living the Vail lifestyle."
"Over the past months I have been searching for alternative marketing efforts to ensure the sale of our home in order to re-allocate my capital to other investment opportunities. After researching various auction formats and firms, Concierge Auctions was a clear choice due to its expert team and sole focus on luxury homes," stated seller David White. "I know I am taking a risk by selling Absolute; however, I weighed the decision with great thought. I am willing to risk allowing the buyers to identify the price in return for a guaranteed sale on September 30th."
One of the Vail Valley's most magnificent masterpieces and inspired by the romantic architectural style found in the remote mountain villages of Italy, 50 Spring Creek Place offers 11,026 square feet of living area with five bedrooms, seven and one-half bathrooms, and showcases soaring vaulted ceilings and integrated living spaces that seamlessly beckon the outdoors in. Overlooking Spring Creek with the Sawatch Mountain Range as its stunning backdrop, the home features custom finishes throughout, including reclaimed Java limestone, exquisite fixtures, handsome stone walls, rich wood and beam ceilings, stunning archways and gorgeous iron railings. With over 1,000 square feet of picturesque stone terraces, the outdoor living areas are unrivaled - ideal for intimate and large gatherings alike.
Vail offers mountain resort living at its finest, combining the grandeur of the most refined and renowned Alpine ski villages in the nation with the quaint charm of the American West, attracting daredevils, idealists and adventure seekers alike. From world-class skiing and golfing to internationally-acclaimed arts and cultural entertainment, to some of the most renowned shopping and dining in the nation, if not the world, Vail is a dynamic, vibrant, year-round community that inspires the mind, relaxes the body and entices the senses.
The Club at Cordillera is the recreational and social centerpiece of the most extraordinary private mountain community in North America and truly is life at its best.
