JACKSON HOLE, Wyo., July 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- New York-based Concierge Auctions is pleased to announce the noteworthy sale of The Grand Teton Estate, ranked one of the top three most spectacular ski homes in America by CNBC and located just minutes from world-renowned skiing and snowboarding in the winter and unparalleled sightseeing, hiking and biking in the summer. Designed by premier Montana architect Jonathan Foote, this rock and timber masterpiece is located on 10.63 heavily treed and very private acres near the base of the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. The architecturally stunning estate sold on Friday, July 12th to the highest bidder at a live auction in cooperation with Pamela Renner of Jackson Hole Sotheby's International Realty.
"It was a wonderful experience partnering with the professionals at Concierge Auctions to achieve the remarkably successful sale of the Grand Teton Estate," stated Renner. "This is truly one of the finest homes in all of Jackson Hole, offering expansive square footage and world-class amenities. I am happy to congratulate the new owner of this grand estate."
Concierge Auctions' global marketing campaign generated over 32,000 website visits from 46 U.S. states (led by Texas) and 39 international countries (led by United States, then Canada). A total of 739 prospects were identified and 9 bidders participated in the live on-site auction. Top brokers in the market, including some of the highest producing brokers in the country, represented 6 of the bidders, and 4 bidders were previous clients of Concierge Auctions.
"I've worked with Concierge Auctions as a listing agent on two other properties in the past and have been very impressed with the professionalism and talent of the firm; they always do a wonderful job," stated the buyer's agent, Dave Spackman of Jackson Hole Sotheby's International Realty. "The estate purchased last week is an exquisite property and it will fit the needs of the buyer perfectly – they are very happy with this purchase."
Geographically unique, this estate sits atop a hill on Jackson Hole's valley floor that creates a private world with easy access to the surrounding recreational activities, but with complete seclusion and privacy from most passersby.
Featuring antique timbers and stone walls, Foote created a majestic space amid the rugged landscape that is designed for both grand entertaining and intimate family living. A stunning and magnificent entryway contains 24,000 feet of hand-laid pavers and lush landscaping. The interior of the home boosts seven bedrooms, seven full and two half bathrooms; a 12-seat theater designed by highly-acclaimed Central California Sound Engineer Keith Yates; a 4,000-bottle wine cellar with antique Italian door; a 1,200-square-foot, professionally-designed gym; a seven-car garage and four heated dog kennels.
"The level of professionalism and skill from everyone on the Concierge Auctions team was impressive. Each person played their part to figure out how to achieve the best price, but specifically, I have to commend Chad Roffers. Chad was the first person I met at Concierge, and I've enjoyed working with him from that moment until today. His honest, straightforward approach was appreciated," stated seller Kirk Roney. "Prior to working with Concierge I was very specific about approving potential buyers to see the property. I simply didn't want my privacy invaded. The Concierge team managed the showings well, and I was relieved after hiring them that entire process — from beginning to end — would only be five weeks."
"I also was very impressed with Concierge's advertising efforts. They were willing to spend the time and money to expose the property on a larger scale than I was used to in the past. As a result, they generated a lot of interest and brought in several qualified buyers who wanted my house," added Roney.
The community of Jackson Hole is a beautiful 48-mile-long valley surrounded by the Teton Mountains to the west and the Gros Ventre Mountains to the east. Yellowstone National Park is located less than 90 miles to the north. Within the valley sits 310,000 protected acres in the nearby Grand Teton National Park, as well as winding rivers, glacial lakes and ample wildlife from the pronghorn antelope to the grizzly bear.
"It was a true pleasure to once again auction a magnificent property in Jackson Hole, one of the most exclusive and desirable communities in the world. This auction was particularly exciting for Concierge Auctions as it was our 12th successful sale in the Jackson, Wyoming market since 2009," stated Mike Russo, Chief Operating Officer of Concierge Auctions. "The auction of Grand Teton Estate is another example of Concierge Auctions proven ability to identify high-net-worth buyers for unique one of a kind assets in an accelerated time frame."
