Concierge Auctions to sell one of America's greatest ranches

610+ acre ranch near Aspen, Colorado was originally offered for $49.5M

ASPEN, Colo., Aug. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Concierge Auctions, a luxury real estate auction firm serving high-net-worth individuals worldwide, today announced the September 16th auction of Peace Ranch. The estate was originally offered for $49.5M and will sell to the highest bidder with a reserve of $17M. The auction will be conducted in cooperation with Tommy Latousek and Mary Anne Meyer of Joshua & Co. of Aspen.

610+ acre ranch near Aspen, Colorado was originally offered for $49.5M

"Concierge Auctions took great interest in Peace Ranch because not only is it a one-of-a-kind property, with top-notch amenities and a prime location, but also because it benefits from 10,000+ surrounding acres of National Forest for recreational use," said Laura Brady, Founder and President of Concierge Auctions. "The property is one of few in the country with a private access road across National Forest land."

Peace Ranch is currently owned by Tom Bedell, son of former U.S. Representative Berkley Bedell. He and his wife decided to sell because they plan to spend more time focusing on growing companies that they own, Two Old Hippies, a memorabilia and clothing store based in Nashville, Tennessee, and Bedell Guitar Company, a guitar store based in Bend, Oregon.

"While Peace Ranch is expansive in its own right, unfolding over 610 acres, the property is also surrounded by thousands of acres of land that are not accessible except from the ranch," said Bedell. "The privacy that Peace Ranch offers, therefore, is simply unrivaled, and the future owners of this ranch will be able to use the entire basin for recreational activity, likely without ever encountering another person."

Indeed, Peace Ranch is a paradise for horseback riders, fishermen, hunters, and skiers, all rolled into one lavishly appointed property.  Horse lovers can canter along endless trails both on the property and throughout the adjacent national forest, without ever taking the same route twice. Those who want to improve their technique can do so in the property's stunning 150' x 240' outdoor riding arena. And riders who really want to put on a show can move indoors to the 29,000-square-foot, multi-use indoor horse arena, which can easily accommodate up to 1,200 guests.

For the owner who loves fishing and hunting, Peace Ranch features four stocked trout ponds and ample wildlife. What's more is that the property is only minutes from the Fryingpan River, a gold-medal international fishing destination where, as locals tell it, fish are measured in pounds instead of inches.

Rare for properties of this expanse is Peace Ranch's proximity to some of the best downhill skiing in the world. With Aspen and Snowmass approximately 40 minutes away, the lucky owner of Peace Ranch need not choose whether to hunt, fish, horseback ride, or ski – they're all in a day's mountain living.

Peace Ranch is also the ideal place to host gatherings. From an intimate holiday with friends and family, to a destination resort, the property's 5 residences and 16 guest rooms are suited to comfortably accommodate guests for any occasion. After a long day under the gaze of soaring hawks and the rustle of green Aspen trees, Peace Ranch's luxurious hot tub and pool are favorite locations for visitors looking to exchange stories and laughs.

"With abundant elk for hunting, stocked ponds for fishing, the nation's most beautiful horse arena, and thousands of acres of public land surrounding this inholding property, Peace Ranch is one of the top recreational properties in the West," said Latousek. "It's also turnkey, something that is rare for a property of this size. The next owner will get to benefit from all the property has to offer — five homes and expansive acreage and recreation — practically from the moment the gavel comes down, since it comes with all the farm and ranch equipment one needs, not to mention a top-notch ranch manager to take care of everything for a new owner."

The auction of Peace Ranch, located at 2900 Taylor Creek Road will be held live on September 16th. A 2.25% commission is offered to the buyer's representing broker. The property is available for preview daily from 1-4pm by appointment. See Auction Terms and Conditions for full details. For more information, call (212) 257-5175.

Also selling at auction on September 16th is a luxurious 7,000+ square-foot Aspen residence on two acres. Located at 845 Brush Creek Road, mere minutes from Downtown Aspen and the slopes of Snowmass Village, this elegant home boasts 7 bedrooms, including four en-suite guest suites — all above grade — with coveted mountain views. Originally offered for $7.35M, the property will sell to the highest bidder at or above a $3M reserve in cooperation with AnneAdare Wood of Aspen Snowmass Sotheby's International Realty. A 2.5% commission is offered to the buyer's representative, and the property is open for preview daily from 1-4pm. For more details, call (212) 257-5174.
