CARBONDALE, Colorado – A custom-built, 5,082-square-foot River Valley Ranch house will be on the block for a live, on-site auction Thursday, Aug. 26, with no minimum bid required to participate.

The five-bedroom, four-bath house at 4118 Crystal Bridge Drive was originally listed for $1.85 million. The auction sale will be conducted by New York-based Concierge Auctions, in cooperation with listing broker and seller Daniel Bruder.

“With 43 homes currently on the market in this neighborhood, many buyers are confused about values and are choosing a ‘wait and see’ approach,” Bruder stated in a press release. “I understand I am taking a risk by purely allowing buyers to identify the value of my home with no minimum bid required, but it was a calculated decision. I want the market to know I am 100 percent committed to selling on Aug. 26.”

The house was designed by renowned architect Brad Jordan, and includes views of Mount Sopris and the River Valley Ranch Golf Course with a private outdoor deck. The design also incorporated the use of natural mountain materials such as barn wood, interior/exterior rock and knotty alder.

The auction will take place at 11 a.m. Aug. 26. Proxy bidding is available, and a 2.5 percent commission is offered to the buyer’s broker. The property is open for preview daily from 1-4 p.m. and by appointment.

With compressed natural gas (CNG) stations making their way to Rifle, with thanks to Rocky Mountain Alternative Fueling and Swallow Oil, CNG Conversions of Colorado, in conjunction with Western Slope Trailer Sales, is happy to announce themselves as the only authorized and licensed CNG installation facility on the Western Slope.

“When we learned that we would be involved in putting some of the first CNG converted fleet vehicles on the road in this area, we were ecstatic. With the new CNG fill stations arriving in the fall, we couldn’t think of a better time to make this exciting announcement,” said Brittany Beaudry of CNG Conversions of Colorado.

With the first four conversion requests already placed, CNG Conversions of Colorado and Western Slope Trailer Sales are enthused for the opportunity to be involved in such an impactful venture. The benefits of compressed natural gas are plentiful and include decreasing fleet vehicle maintenance by up to 40 percent, reducing fuel costs up to 50 percent, the reduction of emissions and pollutants, less reliability on foreign oil, increased use of abundant natural (gas) resources, etc.

Colorado is said to be one of the most generous states regarding tax credits and rebates for alternative fuel vehicle conversion. Depending on the gross vehicle weight, Colorado rebates can range anywhere from $1,947 to $13,779. It should also be noted that the federal government offers additional rebates to further reduce the overall cost incurred by the consumer.

“We couldn’t be more proud to offer this cutting-edge service and help pave the way for a cleaner, greener Colorado,” Beaudry said.
