Custom-built home in mountain town of Whitefish to be sold at June 7 ‘absolute’ auction
Grand Estates Auction Co., the leading luxury real estate auction firm, is offering a well-appointed, custom built estate in the picturesque mountain town of Whitefish, MT, overlooking Glacier National Park. The auction on Tuesday, June 7, will be “absolute,” where the lack of a minimum bid or reserve assures a prompt sale that benefits both buyer and seller.
Located in the gated community of Elkhorn, boasting scenic mountain views, this 4,450 square-foot estate features stunning craftsmanship and thoughtful details such as hand hewn logs, river stone fireplaces and beautifully landscaped grounds. Its four spacious bedrooms come with oak furnishings fitting to the home’s rustic and elegant atmosphere while large, light-filled rooms including a gourmet kitchen and bar and billiard room ensure ample space for entertaining family and friends. Entering the grand foyer with its stone tile mosaics, one gets a taste of the luxury mountain living experience that awaits them. An impressive living room with 25’ ceiling leads out to a main level balcony that lets guests take in sweeping views of Glacier National Park, and the Spa gazebo is perfect for relaxing at night and enjoying a Montana sunset.
This exquisite, three-level estate is only five minutes from the quaint, tree-lined streets of “Old-West” style downtown Whitefish. A quintessential resort mountain town and bustling artist community, Whitefish offers year-round recreation with sporting activities, cultural festivals, concerts, as well as world class golf, skiing, boating, dining and shopping. Nearby, pristine Whitefish Lake also offers sandy beaches and beautifully landscaped parks surrounded by the Rocky Mountains.
Grand Estates has an 11-year track record of representing one-of-a-kind properties and attracting a well-qualified group of bidders. “Auctions have become an ideal way to buy and sell high-end real estate because they establish the true market value of a property through open competitive bidding on a pre-determined day,” said Stacy Kirk, president of Grand Estates. “For our sellers, auctions offer the comfort of knowing when their homes will sell, reduce high maintenance, taxes and other carrying costs and eliminate the hassles of unscheduled showings. For our buyers, auctions assure that the seller is committed to selling and that buyers are competing fairly and on the same terms.”
The June 7 auction begins at 2:00 p.m. Prospective bidders may tour the property starting at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, June 3, and continuing until auction day. Grand Estates auctions are open only to registered bidders, who are required to submit a $50,000 refundable cashier’s or certified check prior to the auction. Remote bidding arrangements are available for bidders who cannot be in attendance. Prospective bidders and sellers should contact Grand Estates Auction Co. at 800 552-8120 or 704 529-0026 for bid registration requirements and to inquire about the showing schedule before the auction.
