J. P. King Auction Company to Sell Blue Mesa Hideaway Estate and the Lake Fork Resort at Auction

At a Real Estate Auction on August 18, J. P. King Will Sell the 4,800 Square Foot Blue Mesa Hideaway as Well as the Lake Fork Resort -- an Income Opportunity -- and a Five-Acre Parcel, All With Views of the Blue Mesa Reservoir

GUNNISON, CO--(Marketwire - Jul 11, 2012) - Since he was a little boy, Gil Barfield has dreamed of owning a home out West. So almost a decade ago, he bought the Blue Mesa Hideaway, which he has chosen to sell at a real estate auction on August 18. Last listed at $1.95 million, Barfield will sell his home at or above $750,000 through an auction event conducted by J. P. King Auction Company.

Blue Mesa Hideaway is a Spanish-style estate situated on 171 acres in Gunnison, Colorado. The home features four bedrooms and four bathrooms spread over 4,800 square feet, including a master suite with a private patio. The home has custom reclaimed wood flooring from a Denver saloon, and with its large windows, the recently-remodeled estate provides 360-degree views of the Blue Mesa Reservoir and the mountains beyond.

"It has always been my dream since I was a kid that one day I would own a place out West," said Gil Barfield, the property's owner. "So I did it. I checked that off my bucket list with a great home that has some of the best views I've ever seen. With the mountains and the mesas behind it, the cliffs and of course the water, it gives you a combination that's difficult to find."

Barfield has also decided to offer the six-cabin Lake Fork Resort nearby. The 39-acre investment opportunity will sell absolute, with no minimums and no reserves. Each of the six cabins has one bedroom that can sleep four to six guests and also includes one two-bedroom, two-bath manager's home.

Directly across the street is a five-acre parcel that will also sell absolute. The parcel is ideal for constructing a mountain home with views of the Blue Mesa Reservoir.

The auction will take place on Saturday, August 18 at 11 a.m. at the Blue Mesa Hideaway, which is located at 14752 West Highway 50 in Gunnison. Property tours will be available for interested buyers from August 6 through auction day. For additional information, individuals may contact J. P.
