Luxury mountain properties lead our real estate report this week, including an estate in Telluride, Colorado once priced at $20.5m, and another in Aspen, on the banks of the Roaring Fork River. Each will be sold without reserve, meaning they will go to the highest bidders, regardless of price. Read more in our high-end real estate roundup.
The Telluride ski estate known as Pa Gomo sits on 35 acres atop Deep Mesa by the Gray Head Wilderness Preserve. Little has been spared in creating this unique property, originally listed for $20.5m. It offers 5 bedrooms and 6.5 baths in 10,390 sf. Walls, handcrafted from stone quarried on the property, and floor-to-ceiling glass walls frame spectacular views of the San Juan Range; the curving copper roof matches the contours of the surrounding meadows. Six outdoor living areas span 4600sf. When this collaboration between architect Jack Snow and stone mason Simon Aplin comes up for auction on July 12, it will be sold to the highest bidder, regardless of price.
Near the Mountain Village section of Telluride, another ski house is coming on the auction market. With ski-in, ski-out access, See Forever Cabin 2 has 4 bedrooms and 4 full baths in 3700sf. Along with views of the Wilsons and the San Sophia ranges, the cabin offers a gourmet kitchen, media room, double-sided fireplace, and heated outdoor decks. Among its abundant high-end features are rough-sewn Douglas Fir beams and trusses, dry-stacked Anasazi stone veneer accent walls, Sebastian flagstone flooring, and in-floor radiant heat. With the residence comes access to the Peaks resort, and its rental management program. Originally listed at $3.7m, the lodge is being auctioned without reserve, meaning it will go to the highest bidder.
If Aspen, with its famed, high-end lifestyle, is more to your taste, a luxury ski residence in Woody Creek is heading to auction. Located on the banks of the Roaring Fork River, nine miles from the town, it offers 5600sf of interior space, with 4 bedrooms and 4.5 baths. Newly built in 2008, the cabin offers reclaimed heart of pine hardwood flooring, Pacific Northwest Douglas Fir Post and Beam constructions, Roaring Fork Valley river rock fireplace, and slate rock patios. There’s a gourmet kitchen, 2-car garage, and separate 1848sf workshop/barn. Adding to the privacy are the 2400 Spruce trees that have been planted on the property. As a bonus, a historic 19th century settler’s cabin from Aspen’s silver mining days is also on the grounds.
