Concierge Auctions to Present New Rocky Mountain Estate at Live, On-Site Auction With No Minimum Bid Required

Custom-built home to sell to the highest bidder on September 24

Aug 25, 2010

A timeless, custom-built residence named the "Best One-of-a-Kind Spec Home" in the Rocky Mountain Region by the National Association of Homebuilders and Professional Builder Magazine will sell at a live, on-site auction on September 24, NYC-based luxury real estate auction firm Concierge Auctions has announced. Previously listed for $2,750,000, no minimum bid is required to participate. The 650 Golden Willow Road sale is being conducted in cooperation with listing agent Emily Henderson of Fuller Sotheby's International Realty.

"After analyzing creative marketing techniques to achieve my client's goal of selling by the end of September, Concierge Auctions was the clear choice," stated Henderson. "Through the Concierge process, buyers will identify the value of the property in a live, transparent bidding forum, offering the high bidder comfort that they are paying a fair price. In return, my client will obtain a non-contingent contract without negotiations and a closing in 30 days."

650 Golden Willow Road is a 7,504-square-foot luxury residence featuring four bedrooms, five full baths, two half baths and a main floor executive study. The "Rustic Zen" style incorporates natural building materials that blend seamlessly with the private lot and wooded surroundings. Reclaimed wood flooring and extensive glass throughout make way to breathtaking views of the Rocky Mountains. A gourmet kitchen, hearth room and study that could be made into a fifth bedroom are located on the main floor, rounded out by an expansive outdoor living room with a fireplace and an owner's suite with a private deck.

The home was created with more than 120 tons of authentic stone, slab granite and marble and is accented by pine timbers from Grand Lake. Outdoors, the property boasts an oversized three-car garage and more than 2,100 square feet of outdoor living space, perfect for entertaining on a grand scale.

Evergreen, located roughly 30 miles west of Denver, is surrounded by thousands of acres of land in the Denver Mountain Parks and Jefferson County Open Space park systems. Evergreen Lake, a popular recreation area, sits above downtown Evergreen, a town known for its mix of historic buildings and local businesses. In the winter, ice skating is offered at Evergreen Lake, and skiing and snowboarding are popular outdoor activities at nearby world-class resorts. Predicated on its low humidity, it is common to see residents walk around in short sleeve shirts in the middle of winter. In early spring, hundreds of elk descend down to residents homes where they feed unbothered by their human neighbors.

"It is evident that we have become the auction firm of choice for luxury mountain sellers," stated George Graham, CEO of Concierge Auctions. "This auction comes on the heels of two recent Concierge Auctions successes in the Rocky Mountain Region in just the past month - an estate with 400 feet of frontage on Whitefish Lake in Whitefish, MT, and the Teton Valley Ranch in Jackson Hole, WY, one of the most premier and storied ranch estates in the nation. Without a minimum bid requirement, this is another tremendous opportunity for a lucky buyer to purchase a premier property from one of the most motivated sellers in the region."

The live, on-site auction of 650 Golden Willow Road will be held on September 24 at 11 a.m. MDT. No minimum bid is required to participate. The property is open for preview daily from 1 to 4 p.m. and by appointment. A 2.5% commission is offered to the buyer's broker. See Auction Terms and Conditions for full details.
