Record Sales at Bluebird

High-end luxury home sales have been heating up in the Crested Butte market and continue soaring to new heights. Bluebird recently recorded the highest priced residential home sale in the history of Gunnison County at $6,792,000. Listed by Maggie Dethloff with Bluebird Real Estate, 1294 County Road 734 includes a primary residence, guest house, additional detached 2 car heated garage, gated private drive and horse corral just minutes from the town of Crested Butte and steps from famous mountain biking and hiking trails. Elk Run and Fox Den exudes rustic elegance with custom finishes and unencumbered mountain and Slate River Valley views. Congratulations to Maggie and the sellers of this magnificent mountain retreat on their successful and record-breaking sale!

Bluebird also recently sold the highest priced residential property within the town limits of Crested Butte in an off-market transaction. Dalynn Trujillo represented the sellers at 825 Elk Avenue, which closed for $5,100,000 earlier this year. Built in 2016 and adjacent to Rainbow Park, this one-of-a-kind home boasts five bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms, a finished basement, elevator, in-ground hot tub and top of the line finishes throughout. Bluebird was pleased to represent the sellers in this seamless transition.

In addition to recent record-breaking closings, Bluebird has also contracted the highest priced home for sale in Crested Butte. Situated on an elevated site with panoramic mountain views in the newly built and highly coveted Aperture subdivision, 101 Pyramid Avenue is listed by Jenna May for $8,100,000 with buyer representation by fellow Bluebird agent Diane Aronovic. This custom-built masterpiece was designed and built by top firms and offers elaborate steel and timber details, seven-foot white oak doors throughout, and an oxygen exchange system for healthier living. Upon closing, this will be the highest priced sale to date in the Crested Butte area. Bluebird is pleased to represent both the buyers and sellers of this brand-new mountain modern concept.

Record breaking sales are not new for Bluebird Real Estate. Joel Vosburg and Charlie Farnan represented the sellers in a record sale at 143 Journeys End in 2017, Jenny Knox and Diane Aronovic set a record for the Crested Butte area at 7 Moon Ridge in 2020 and Charlie Farnan represented the buyers of the highest priced sale in Mt. CB at 19 Kokanee in 2021.

Several luxury properties listed by Bluebird Real Estate are currently available for purchase, including 303 Forest Lane. Co-Listed by Trevor Bona at Bluebird Real Estate and Josh Haakinson at Engel and Volkers for $8,995,000, the Taylor Crest Manor’s premium Skyland location offers endless recreational opportunities and immaculate high-end details throughout the home, featuring over 9,000 square feet of living space, a 1,500 bottle wine cellar and cigar room.

Located in the desirable Aperture subdivision, 257 Pyramid Avenue is currently available and listed by Diane Aronovic for $7,950,000. Slated for completion in the first quarter of 2023 and located at the end of a cul-de-sac with privacy as well as stupendous views of the surrounding mountains, this is Crested Butte living at its finest!

Rural Crested Butte offers expansive luxury living and 757 Ridge Road is truly a special opportunity. Listed by Jana Barrett for $6,399,000, this luxurious custom-built home is bordered by national forest on one side and situated on over 71 acres in an estate-like setting with unobstructed views towards Crested Butte Mountain and Paradise Divide. Built out of sustainable materials including reclaimed wood and standing dead timber construction, this would make an incredible legacy property.

Bluebird is honored to be a part of each of these special transactions and plans to continue our track record of setting new records well into the future. We are here to help, whenever you are ready to bring dreams home!
