Grand Estates Auction Co. Offers Colorado Estate

Grand Estates Auction Co. (, America’s top luxury real estate auction firm, is offering a luxurious mountainside retreat built into the foothills of Conifer, Colo., that offers the best of both resort living and convenience to urban amenities.

The auction at 2 pm on Tuesday, June 15, is “absolute,” where the absence of a starting bid or minimum reserve immediately establishes the true market value and assures a prompt sale that benefits both buyer and seller.

This rare retreat is located just 15 miles southwest of Denver and five minutes from new U.S. 285. Built in 2009, the 8,200-plus-square-foot, full-round-log estate offers five bedrooms and seven bathrooms, including two master suites and a naturally built backyard rock climbing wall. The gourmet kitchen features five ovens, a large pantry with dumbwaiter and bar seating for 10.

With 60-mile views of the Rocky Mountains from every window, the home also includes more than 2,000 square feet of surrounding patios and porches for entertaining with majestic views of Pike’s Peak. Additional rooms include a wine room, steam room, library, workshop, recreation room and five oversized heated garages with custom cedar doors. The property, which includes an additional two-lot, sub-dividable 25 acres, offers easy access to world-class skiing, hiking, biking, fly fishing, rafting, golf and horseback riding.

Understanding that casting the widest net will attract the most qualified bidders, Grand Estates’ 20-person team utilizes its broad experience in marketing luxury real estate to produce attention-grabbing marketing materials and advertising in national and international high-end publications. “The system developed by Grand Estates offers an exclusive experience similar to auctioning fine art,” said Stacy Kirk, president of Grand Estates, with offices in Vail, Atlanta, Charlotte, Dallas, La Jolla, Calif. and Naples, Fla. “The multi-million-dollar property buyer is very specific in what they’re seeking, and we understand this market better than anyone.”

Prospective bidders may tour the property starting June 5. Grand Estates auctions are open only to registered bidders, who are required to submit a refundable cashier’s or certified check prior to the auction. Prospective bidders and sellers should contact Grand Estates Auction Co. at 800 552-8120 or 704 529-0026 for bid registration requirements and to inquire about the showing schedule before the auctions.
