JEFFERSON, Colo., Sept. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- New York-based Concierge Auctions is pleased to announce the October 11th auction of the Flying Horse Ranch, a sprawling mountain estate located in the historic South Park basin in Colorado and bordering over one million acres of the Pike National Forest. Just an hour from Denver and 45 minutes from the slopes of Breckenridge, this luxury ranch includes a 10,711-square-foot lodge, two lakeside cabins, a ranch house, a 7,492-square-foot log barn, two 20-acre lakes, and a fully outfitted fish camp. Previously offered for $22.9 million, the Flying Horse Ranch will sell in two parcels or in its entirety during a live auction in cooperation with Roger Hukle and Creed Spillane of Flying Horse Realty and Billy Long and Ron Morris of Ranch Marketing Associates.
"This exceptional retreat and working ranch is like a scene from a John Wayne movie. Thousands of acres of grassland are highlighted by adjacent mountains, and the property's two well-stocked lakes and trophy fishing stream — when added to the areas skiing, hiking and biking opportunities — set the stage for just about any form of outdoor recreation desired," stated Hukle. "Ranches of this size, with water rights and modern amenities, are becoming increasingly difficult to find in Colorado. It deserves special attention, which is why the owner has decided to open the property for auction, so that it receives the widest exposure possible."
"Flying Horse is a one-of-a-kind estate and working cattle ranch that is surrounded by public lands and offers virtually endless recreational opportunities — all in a premier location close to Denver," stated Long. "With approximately $800 per finished square foot invested in the magnificent log home, this is an excellent opportunity to purchase a gorgeous property with exceptional value."
The centerpiece of the Flying Horse Ranch is the 10,711-square-foot lodge, an incredible structure built in British Columbia using massive white cedar logs and reconstructed on Horseshoe Lake. The residence features onyx chandeliers, Persian carpets, vaulted ceilings, restored hardwood floors and roaring fireplaces. The lodge offers two masterpiece masters, both with ensuite bathrooms and fireplaces. One room showcases a 10-foot-high, intricately-carved fireplace, thick rugs, candelabra, antique furniture, an oversized king bed with custom bedding and double leather chaise. The master bathroom includes a copper soaking tub, eight-foot double shower and double granite vanity sinks with mosaic basins. The second master suite is a complete apartment on the second floor of the lodge with sweeping views from the deck of the plains below, with equally opulent furnishings as its counterpart. Three additional guest rooms complete the lodge, each with its own personality and individual delights.
Beyond the lodge, the Flying Horse Ranch includes two lakefront cabins and a ranch house. The cabins sit on the shores of Horseshoe Lake with decks for enjoying the view and include a downstairs bedroom, living area and full kitchen, with a sleeping loft above. The ranch also includes a fish camp nestled in the pines near Baker Lake in the north forty. Two canvas tents sit atop wooden platforms. The latest addition to the ranch is a 7,492-square-foot log barn equipped with extensive equestrian facilities, including eight stalls, bathing booth, tack room, loft hay storage, workshop, heated office and restroom.
