ASPEN, Colo. (PRWEB) June 26, 2012
Buyers will set the price on the newest luxury property in the Grand Estates Auction Company portfolio: an idyllic Woody Creek ranch residence combining all the eclectic charm of the exclusive Aspen-area neighborhood with stunning architectural details and vast mountain views. Having already sold more than 30 luxury properties in the Colorado market and hundreds of exclusive properties nationally and internationally with an unsurpassed closing success rate, Grand Estates Auction Company is offering the Rocky Mountain estate at absolute auction on Tuesday, July 10, 2012.
Absolute auctions require no minimum bid or reserve price and are becoming increasingly popular with buyers and sellers of luxury real estate due to their timeliness and transparency. There are no contingencies, no lengthy negotiations, and timelines for closing are already established. To help buyers make an informed purchase, a comprehensive due-diligence packet is provided, and ample time is allotted for tours and inspections prior to the auction. The exclusive luxury home will sell for fair-market value as determined by the registered bidders on auction day.
“This is an exquisite home that the buyer will want to enjoy as quickly as possible. Through the auction process, someone in the market for a luxury home can tour the home, have the due-diligence upfront and purchase the property with a guaranteed closing 30 days from the auction date,” said Val DeVine, CEO of Charlotte-based Grand Estates Auction Company. “Luxury home buyers appreciate the transparency, expediency and high level of service of the auction process.”
Although a focal point of the Aspen-area estate is the original pioneer cabin that is nestled among 2,400 spruce trees along the roaring Woody Creek that runs through the property, the home itself is the epitome of modern-day luxury and convenience, perfectly appointed for entertaining or just getting away from it all. The property also affords ultimate privacy as the 32-acre estate is fully fenced and gated.
Featuring rustic design elements such as reclaimed antique heart of pine wood flooring, Pacific Northwest Douglas Fir posts and beam construction, slate rock patio areas, and a Roaring Fork River Valley river rock fireplace, the four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom home combines Colorado natural elements with luxurious modern-day conveniences. Amenities of the 5,600 square foot home include a gourmet kitchen with Viking Range, SubZero refrigerator, Asko dishwashers and Knotty Alder cabinetry; radiant heated floors throughout; master suite steam shower and private patio with hot tub; 2-car garage plus a spacious carport; separate 1,848 square foot workshop or barn; equestrian zoning; and Big Gun Irrigation with excellent water rights.
Situated in Colorado’s Roaring Fork River valley, Woody Creek is an alluring blend of mountain scenery, small town charm and rustic elegance, just nine miles outside of Aspen’s world-class skiing, shopping and dining. Yet it is a world away where celebrities, business leaders and not-so-famous residents come to unwind and relax in the majestic Colorado Rocky Mountains.
The auction will start promptly at 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday, July 10th. Provisions for remote bidding can be arranged. The property will be available for prospective bidders to preview beginning Saturday, June 30th, at 11:00 a.m., with preview times scheduled through the date of the auction. Buyers may contact Grand Estates Auction Company’s auction information office to schedule an appointment during one of the preview times at 877-314-4960. A $100,000.00 certified check or personal check along with a bank letter of guarantee will be required to register to bid.
