Curbed Ski has an insider tip on this gorgeous Vail Valley estate that is headed to auction on Friday, January 3, 2014. Located about 20 minutes from Beaver Creek and just one mile away from the famous Red Sky Ranch & Golf Club, this 6 bedroom, 10 bath home sits on 11 acres in a gated community and has over 8,000 square feet. The best amenities include huge windows with views of the surrounding mountains, four fireplaces, a six car garage, and an elevator. The outdoor fire pit looks mighty enticing and according to Zillow the property was listed for as much as $3.2 million in 2011. Several price chops and de-listings later, this beauty will be sold at an absolute auction with no minimum and no reserve. It's likely that bidders looking to buy a new year's gift could score quite the deal, but you must have 100k in certified funds and 10% down in order to play the monopoly auction game.
