Ski-In/Ski-Out Telluride Home Available For Auction At Half Asking Price, Beginning At $8.9 Million (PHOTOS)

A luxurious, newly-constructed Telluride home featuring direct ski-in/ski-out access will be sold at a September auction for half the original listing price.

Originally listed for $18.5 million, it can all be yours now for only $8.9 million.

Real estate auctions are a smart strategy to sell and acquire truly unique trophy homes. Both purchasers and sellers realize that trophy home auctions offer premium, tangible value,” said John J. Cuticelli Jr., CEO of Sheldon Good & Company which is selling the home in cooperation with Peaks Real Estate/Sotheby's Realty International.

The 18,700 square foot home is situated in Mountain Village and sits directly adjacent to Telluride Ski Resort’s green-rated Double Cabin ski run. Designed by award-winning architect Russell Gies and the late David Gibson, the home boasts extraordinary views of the surrounding San Juan Mountains.

The interiors feature an indoor freshwater pool with a fireplace and waterfall, a spa including a sauna and rain shower, a large wine room, handcrafted library, eight fireplaces, a cinema room and more.
