BIG SKY, Mont., March 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Global real estate auction firm Concierge Auctions hammered the gavel last night on its 11th successful Montana auction: the 259-acre Crosscut Ranch. The firm, which has sold many of the state's most prestigious properties, in locations ranging from Spanish Peaks and the Yellowstone Club to private ranches and estates, also announced its next opportunity: the April 17th auction of 17 Travertine Road in Big Sky. Eric Ladd and Ryan Kulesza of L&K Real Estate represent both properties.
"I have watched Concierge's success throughout Montana and around the world, but I didn't fully understand the power of their process until we worked together on the Crosscut Ranch auction," stated Ladd. "Their reach to serious, high-net-worth buyers is incredible."
Nestled on the southern side of the Bridger Mountain Range, a short distance to downtown Bozeman and the Bozeman airport, Crosscut Ranch is ideal for use as a gentleman's ranch, with development and conservation opportunities and ski-in ability and ski-out potential. The five-week auction marketing campaign generated over 11,700 website visits from 45 US states (led by Texas, California, Montana and Florida) and 81 international countries (led by Canada, the UK, Australia and France). Social media efforts attracted 100,000+ views and 1,700+ engagements. Five qualified bidders competed in the auction.
Ladd added about the upcoming auction of 17 Travertine, "No doubt the Yellowstone Club is one of the most sought-after addresses in the nation. This is an incredible opportunity to purchase a turnkey home where you can enjoy its private amenities year-round."
Poised at the top of Andesite Ridge in the nation's most exclusive ski resort (membership by invitation) overlooking a championship Tom Weiskopf golf course and Pioneer and Eglise Mountains, 17 Travertine Road is big on space and style. The 4,505-square-foot, 5-bed, 4-bath residence is situated on over 3 private acres — mere steps away from the 5,750 skiable acres of Big Sky Resort — and will sell to the highest bidder at or above $2.75 million.
Big Sky is located approximately midway between West Yellowstone and Bozeman in the southwestern part of Montana. Nestled in the Rocky Mountains just west of the famed Gallatin River near the northwest corner of 2.2 million-acre Yellowstone National Park, the Club is a private residential community known for its exclusivity. In addition to world-renowned skiing and an 18-hole golf course, residents and visitors also enjoy mountain biking, fishing, snowmobiling, horseback riding, rock climbing and white water rafting. Warming huts, the extravagant Rainbow and Warren Miller Lodges and the Timberline Cafe, among others, offer guests fine dining, relaxation areas, retail shops and even a day spa. The closest airport is Gallatin Field Airport, located about 50 miles south in Belgrade.
"In the two years we've been selling properties in and around Big Sky, the interest has increased tremendously, and we continue to grow our database of buyers looking for opportunities in the region," stated Laura Brady, Founder and President of Concierge Auctions. "Last night's buyer of Crosscut Ranch has been following our Mountain and Hawaii auctions for over a year. We were excited to help him 'land' this one and to now focus our efforts towards finding the next resident of the Yellowstone Club."
The auction of 17 Travertine Road, located in the Yellowstone Club of Big Sky, Montana, will be held on April 17th. A 3% commission is offered to the buyer's representing broker. The property is available for preview daily with 48-hour notice. See Auction Terms and Conditions for full details.
