Concierge Auctions And Sun Valley Sotheby's International Realty Sell Luxury Mountain Estate In Famous Ski Resort City Sun Valley, Idaho

New owner named for 5,900-square-foot residence at the base of the Sun Valley ski lift

Nov 6, 2012

SUN VALLEY, Idaho, Nov. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- An impressive tri-level estate set at the base of Bald Mountain, one of the best ski experiences in the country, was conveyed to a new owner yesterday, Concierge Auctions announced. Located at 106 Howard Drive, the 5,900-square-foot estate sold in cooperation with listing agent Katherine B. Schroder of Sun Valley Sotheby's International Realty. The buyer was from Hawaii and was represented by Jamie Coulter of Coulter Properties.

"The Concierge team worked tirelessly throughout the auction process. Even though the schedule happened to fall during Sun Valley's off-season, they were still able to stimulate the market and procure a successful sale," stated the seller, Charles Schoenherr. "I would recommend Concierge to other sellers as a unique and effective alternative to the traditional sales process. I appreciate their efforts and feel fortunate that I am now able to move on to other opportunities."

Concierge Auctions' global advertising, marketing and sales campaign generated 2,029 website visitors from all US states (led by California, Idaho, Washington and Colorado) and 43 international countries (led by Canada, the UK, Italy and Australia). In total there were 1,165 inquiries and over 50 showings.

"Being one of the closest homes to Bald Mountain ski access, this residence is a ski lover's paradise, which was key to the buyer," Schroder stated. "Although it had been on the market for a number of years prior, the Concierge process was able to re-invigorate the interest and draw attention from buyers who may not have otherwise considered this house and/or neighborhood. Ultimately we secured a new owner who made an early, strong offer and closed prior to the scheduled auction date without even visiting the property prior. It was an exciting experience."

Built in 2008 with the signature elegance of Gary Storey Construction, 106 Howard Drive is a five-bedroom, six full and one half-bathroom estate. Located in close proximity to world-class arts, culture and outdoor exploration, the property boasts an expansive living room with floor-to-ceiling windows and a custom gas log stone fireplace, a gourmet chef's kitchen, a master suite and bathroom with a jetted tub, a media room, a ski storage/mud room and a two-car garage. Designed with a spacious, open floor plan by Point Architects, with modern interior furnishings by Megan Edwards of Charles Stuhlberg Interiors, the property is ideal for entertaining and incorporates thoughtful measures for the sleeping of two families.

"We're happy to add this sale to our roster of notable successes in the region, including our recent sale of Sun Valley's Top of the Mountain Hideaway, last year's sale of the Knob Hill Inn, and other sales in the nearby states of Montana, Colorado and Wyoming," stated Laura Brady, President of Concierge Auctions. "Our process is particularly great for sellers of luxury resort properties, as many buyers who follow us are in search of vacation homes. This transaction was a prime example. The new owner appreciated that the home was turnkey furnished, and now all he needs to do is show up and enjoy."
