Hassford Gulch, which went under contract following a live auction on Monday in cooperation with Cathy Benson and Channing Boucher of Benson Sotheby's International Realty, is an expansive residence located in Crested Butte, Colorado. Named one of "America's Finest Homes" by Frontgate Magazine, Hassford Gulch is set alongside the Club at Crested Butte golf course against a spectacular backdrop of the Elk Mountain Range in the Colorado Rockies.

  • A 7,864 sf custom home inspired by award-winning films Gosford Park & Downton Abbey, featuring 5 bedrooms and 5 full and 3 half bathrooms
  • Rare position adjacent to Gunnison National Forest and the Club at Crested Butte golf course, which includes mountain-backed greens designed by Robert Trent Jones II

Listing agent for Teton Canyon Ranch, Daniel T. Willert, stated: "As an agent, it's been a pleasure to partner with Concierge Auctions. They're renowned in the luxury real estate industry for their speed and professionalism. They have a great track record in Jackson Hole, having generated some of the region's most notable sales in the past five years."

"At Concierge Auctions, we know how to convey a property's special story and make sure that it reaches the eyes and ears of prospective buyers everywhere," said Laura Brady, Founder and President of Concierge Auctions.
