. May 27, 2010

Concierge Auctions will host a luxury real estate auction of the Spring Creek Ranch, a breathtaking estate in the Bitterroot Valley, Montana, on July 7. The sale is being conducted in cooperation with Prudential Montana Real Estate.

“The Spring Creek Ranch is ideal for anyone seeking a premier mountain estate with the best of Montana’s active lifestyle amidst the utmost elegance,” stated Cindi Hayne of Prudential Montana Real Estate. “The new owner will enjoy the most remarkable four-season living this country has to offer. The property can either continue to serve as a personal residence or be utilized as a fishing lodge or corporate retreat.”

“Concierge Auctions has the pleasure of representing some of the most extraordinary properties in the nation, and the Spring Creek Ranch is certainly one of them,” stated Laura Brady, VP of Marketing for Concierge Auctions. “Any buyer interested in the greater Rocky Mountain Region should arrange a trip to personally experience this property. This is a very compelling opportunity and simply cannot be conveyed second-hand.”

Originally listed for $13 million, the auction has a published reserve of $4.5 million and a pre-sale estimate of $6 to $8 million. The seller is obligated to sell to the highest bidder at or above the reserve.

The Spring Creek Ranch is a private haven located on 181 acres, highlighted by 1.5 miles of Bitterroot River frontage, a 10,000+ square foot main residence, two guest houses, multiple stocked ponds and equestrian facilities. The nine-bedroom, 10-bathroom main residence is punctuated by a massive 400-ton stone hearth fireplace, which the main living area surrounds, complete with views of ponds, wildlife, large pine groves and the impressive Bitterroot Mountains. Built in 2004, the property offers expansive vistas from every area of the home. The larger of the two guest residences, Fish Camp, is a two-bedroom separate dwelling adjacent to the Bitterroot River with a hot tub and authentic wood stove. The third residence acts as the estate gate house at the second entrance to the property.

The outdoor space offers endless entertainment options thanks to the chandeliered dining pavilion with wood burning pizza oven and grill and the built-in fire pit with amphitheater-style seating. There are seven stocked ponds, naturally fed spring creeks, two barns, living quarters above the east barn, equestrian paddocks and pastures and a private sandy beach.

Sheltered between the Bitterroot Mountains and Sapphire Mountains, the Bitterroot Valley – only a 30-minute drive south of Missoula – is recognized as the “Banana Belt” of Montana with its mild winters, crisp autumns and 16 hours of sunshine per day in the summer. This property is mere minutes from Selway – Bitterroot Wilderness, the largest wilderness area in the lower 48 states offering 1.3 million acres of hiking, camping, mountain biking, trail riding, hunting, high country lake fishing and all snow activities.

“The Concierge Auctions method identifies market value for the most premier properties through transparent, live bidding,” stated George Graham, CEO of Concierge Auctions. “It is an ideal process for buyers, as they are able to name the price amidst the other competitive bidders, and also for sellers, as they know that once a contract is procured there are no more negotiations or contingencies.”

The Spring Creek Ranch is located at 81 Bell Crossing in Victor, Montana. The auction will be held live, on-site on Wednesday, July 7 at 2 p.m. MDT. Attendance will be limited to registered bidders and their representatives. The property is available for preview daily by appointment.
