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.

Unique attributes of Hassford Gulch include:

  • An expansive 2.2 acre property with spectacular view of the Elk Mountain Range of the Rocky Mountains
  • 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

  • 180 open house visitors
  • 39 showings
  • 8 qualified bidders

In addition to the successful auction conducted in Crested Butte, four 35+ acre properties went under contract on Wednesday following the live auction of Teton Canyon Ranch.

All four properties offer stunning views of the Teton Mountain Range and Idaho's sweeping Teton Valley. Andrea Loban of Grand Targhee Realty and Ann Goodell of Sage Realty Group represented two of the buyers. 

Unique attributes of the four Teton Canyon Ranch properties include:

  • Ideal locations, with advantageous Wyoming tax rates, one of the most tax-friendly states in the nation, and Yellowstone National Park just a scenic car ride away
  • Spectacular views that will never be touched by development, as the properties are surrounded on three sides by National Forest
  • Access to the best fishing, hiking, biking, hunting, and horseback riding the United States has to offer, with the Grand Targhee Ski Resort situated adjacent to the properties

Concierge Auctions' marketing efforts resulted in:

  • A phenomenal 289,000 website visitors from 49 US states (led by California, Texas, New York and Colorado) and 73 international countries (led by Canada, the UK, Australia and France)
  • 25+ showings
  • 13 qualified bidders from 8 states: FL, NV, MN, CA, IL, UT, WY and GA

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. "With Hassford Gulch and Teton Canyon Ranch, that's exactly what we did. After a busy week, the stories of these five properties all ended the same way: with the fall of a gavel and new owners to enjoy them."
