VAIL, Colo., July 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- A premier Vail Valley mountain residence with state-of-the-art amenities and ski-in/ski-out access to Arrowhead and Beaver Creek resorts will be sold at a live, luxury real estate auction on August 6. Originally listed for $14.25 million, the property is selling Absolute, meaning it will sell to the highest bidder regardless of price. The auction is being conducted by Concierge Auctions in cooperation with managing broker Kent Barker and associate broker Katherine Spoonhour of Slifer, Smith and Frampton Real Estate.

"Having represented buyers and sellers in the Vail Valley for over 16 years, and having knowledge of the luxury properties in the area, I will definitely say this is one of the region's finest ski homes in one of the most premier locations," stated Barker. "Selling without reserve, this may seem like a 'too-good-to-be-true' opportunity, but it is the real deal. The sellers are ready to find a new owner and move on to other endeavors."

"This is an ideal, year-round escape that will please fun-seekers of any age. The home is spacious, yet cozy, and full of unique amenities, while the sports, entertainment and culture of Arrowhead and Beaver Creek are mere moments away, and Vail only a few miles," stated seller Scott Cliver. "I am confident that buyers will understand the value and am therefore taking a calculated risk by committing to hand the keys to the highest bidder on August 6th."

Located at 2195 Cresta Road, on the most prestigious street behind the gates of the Arrowhead Resort, the 13,700-square-foot estate facilitates an active mountain lifestyle with a host of unique amenities and unparalleled ski-in/ski-out access to Arrowhead and Beaver Creek ski areas. Interior features include 7 bedrooms, 8 full and two half bathrooms, 10 fireplaces, wine cellar, theatre room, elevator, expansive outdoor terraces, chef's kitchen with pizza oven, and indoor heated lagoon-style pool.

Arrowhead Village is uniquely situated at the base of North America's premier Village-to-Village ski mountains. The trails of Arrowhead are linked with those of Beaver Creek Village and Bachelor Gulch Village, creating a total of approximately 1,625 acres of skiable terrain on Beaver Creek Mountain.

Nearby Vail is one 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.

"Vail Valley is and will always be one of the most sought-after mountain destinations in the world. This is not only an auction of a premier home - but of a premier lifestyle," stated Laura Brady, Vice President of Marketing for Concierge Auctions. "Last September our auction of 50 Spring Creek in the Cordillera Club presented the region's most motivated seller of a luxury golf resort residence, and now we are pleased to have identified the most motivated seller on the slopes. Anyone interested in a quintessential Colorado mountain resort lifestyle should view the website or visit the daily open houses for more information."

The auction will be held live, on-site on August 6. Attendance will be limited to registered bidders and their representatives. Phone and Internet bidding will be available. The property is open for preview daily from 1 to 4 p.m. and by appointment. A 3% commission is offered to the buyer's broker. See Auction Terms and Conditions for full details.
