JACKSON HOLE, Wyo., Nov. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Two stunning ranch properties dramatically set against Jackson Hole's breathtaking Teton Mountain Range will sell without reserve at auction on December 7th, Concierge Auctions has announced. Known as Bar B Bar Ranches 9 and 10, the properties are part of the total 780-acre ranch and represent two of the few land parcels remaining in Jackson Hole that offer all the key elements required in a legacy property — live water, spectacular mountain views, a plethora of wildlife, open meadows, towering trees, unparalleled privacy and a convenient location. Originally listed for $23.8 million, Parcel 9 encompasses more than 109 acres with Snake River frontage. Parcel 10, originally listed for $20.4 million, is comprised of more than 98 acres. The properties will be sold in cooperation with Tom Evans of Jackson Hole Sotheby's International Realty.
"With the towering trees, unsurpassed privacy and convenience to all the amenities of Jackson Hole, these ranches cannot be missed. The growing demand in the Jackson Hole real estate market is arguably due to it being one of the most tax-friendly climates in the nation, in addition to offering a superb year-round recreational lifestyle," Evans stated. "We're excited to work with Concierge Auctions to present this unique opportunity to acquire some of the finest land in the Rocky Mountain region. The views are breathtaking, and the land is virtually untouched."
Bar B Bar Ranch 9 features spring-fed creeks and beautiful aspen, fir and cottonwood trees surrounded by gorgeous natural foliage and dramatic Teton Range views. The over 109 acres includes Snake River frontage and premier privacy. Beautifully timbered with spring fed creeks, Bar B Bar Ranch 10 offers the same stunning views, water, wildlife and natural foliage and is set on over 98 acres. Each parcel will sell to the highest bidder, regardless of price.
Nestled into Grand Teton National Park with mountain ranges topping out at 13,766 feet, Jackson Hole is a valley of unmatched beauty nearly 20 miles wide and 60 miles long. The name "hole" derives from language used by early Native American trappers who primarily entered the valley from the north and east and had to descend along relatively steep slopes, giving the sensation of entering a hole. These low-lying valleys are surrounded by mountains and contain rivers and streams. Its rich history is topped only by its stunning views, which capture nature's finest during four distinct seasons throughout the year, making Jackson Hole perfect for a wide range of outdoor adventures including trout fishing, skiing, mountain climbing, river rafting and wildlife viewing. Jackson Hole is at the southern doorstep to one of the nation's most beloved national parks, Yellowstone National Park, which was established in 1872. The properties are just a short 15-minute drive to the town of Jackson, which offers dozens of world-renowned restaurants, unique shops, boutiques, spas, hotels, museums, music festivals and over 40 art galleries. Additionally, they are only 30 minutes to the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort and minutes to the Jackson Hole Airport and the Jackson Hole Golf and Tennis Club.
"Jackson Hole is a special, unique community where the natural beauty of the land has been preserved for generations to come. We've had tremendous success here including our September sale of the storied Paintbrush Ranch, which marked the firm's sixth auction success in the region," stated Laura Brady, President of Concierge Auctions. "This auction in particular presents a tremendous opportunity, as the seller needs to close both sales by the end of the year."
The auction of Bar B Bar Ranches 9 and 10 will be held on December 7th. A 2.5% commission is offered to the buyers' representing brokers. The properties are open for preview daily from 1 to 4 p.m. and by appointment. See Auction Terms and Conditions for full details. For more information visit BarBBarAuction.com or call 877.751.8051.
