A 15,000 square-foot home with several million dollars of chandeliers, 440,000 slate mosaic tiles, 26,000 linear feet of Engelmann spruce and Douglas fir logs, hot tub room and a million-dollar theater can be yours for $1.4 million. We had to read that again too. Here's the catch: that's just the starting bid of the Interluxe global online auction with Paul Lewis of Coldwell Banker Mountain Properties, which began on July 31st. Interluxe specializes in luxury home auctions – an emerging alternative to traditional listings that is able to attract buyers and sellers around the world.
Previously listed at $6,995,000 with a recent insurance rebuild cost of $10 million, this home might just be the deal of the Colorado century. Set on three acres overlooking Winter Park and the Continental Divide, it's seriously green with 10 solar panels and wiring for an additional 58 panels, geothermal and natural gas radiant heating and four gas fireplaces. The six bedroom, seven full and three half-bath sleeps 18 regularly and entertains up to 200 for events. It's also zoned for a lake, gazebo, tennis court and has FAA approval with helipad plans underway for all that cash you'll have left over. Or you can spend it to upgrade the overload of American Furniture Warehouse pieces that come with it.
There's three days left to place your bets (the auction ends on August 5).
