United Country Real Estate Offices Join Forces to Conduct Auction July 24

28± Acre Luxury Colorado Mountain Retreat Auction

“This property is perfect for someone seeking a family compound, luxury retreat rental near skiing, wedding venue, “prepper” survival retreat, or for someone just looking to enjoy the luxury and privacy that this property provides."

Luxury home buyers with a passion for skiing and the outdoors will have the opportunity to purchase a world-class 13,067± sq ft mountain home with 28± acres in Ridgway, Colo.

The property will be sold by auction, conducted by United Country | Colorado Brokers & Auctioneers in conjunction with United Real Estate Group | Strategic Client Services, LLC. The live auction will take place on Tuesday, July 24 at 1:00 p.m. on-site at 1037 Catamount Drive, Ridgway, Colo. Online bidding will also be available. Previews of the real estate will be conducted on July 6 and July 7 from 1-4 p.m. as well as July 21 and July 22 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“The state of the economy and real estate market have been hot, but the high-end luxury market is unpredictable as the buyer market is a very select group of people. An increasing number of high-end properties are being sold at auction, so the seller can control the terms such as when the property sells,” explains Mark Woodling, vice president of United Country’s Strategic Client Services, which specializes in selling unique high-end properties. “These wealthy buyers view luxury homes like they do artwork, as these properties are truly one-of-a-kind masterpieces. With our marketing expertise, we know how to reach high-end buyers all over the world, and the whole process can be completed in a few months.”

“My fiancée and I want to travel more,” the owner explained. “We don’t want to be tied down to one spot.”

A very experienced broker in his own right, the owner searched for the right method to sell his property and decided on auction. He said the auction platform creates an accelerated marketing platform, putting the seller in control of the sale process with a pre-determined sale date.

This luxury mountain retreat, built with the finest materials and craftsmanship, is located near Telluride, Colo. in Ridgway, Colo. known as the “Gateway to the San Juan Mountains.” With 13,067± square feet of living area and almost 15,000 sq. feet under its roof, the home is an example of world-class mountain architecture. Accompanying the home is a 5,600-square-foot “toy barn” with a two bedroom guest apartment. The total construction cost for the home, workshop and guest home was over $12 million. The seller is serious about selling at auction and the opening bid will start at just $2.9 million, giving the discerning auction buyer a great opportunity at their price.

“This property is perfect for someone seeking a family compound, luxury retreat rental near skiing, wedding venue, “prepper” survival retreat, or for someone just looking to enjoy the luxury and privacy that this property provides,” said Gary Hubbell, Broker/Owner with United Country Real Estate | Colorado Brokers & Auctioneers. “We might see the gavel fall at full listing price, it may go lower or even higher. Regardless, with $12 million invested in the construction of the property, someone is going to get a smoking deal.”
