What Will $44 Million Buy? Significant Sales from Sotheby’s International Realty


This Snowmass Village, Colo., property topped the list of major transactions in September 2013.

Sotheby’s International Realty has released its top sales for September 2013. A $44 million-dollar transaction for a 504-acre property in Snowmass Village, Colo., topped the list. The 23,000-square-foot main house is supplemented by a guest house, barn, two ponds with water rights and breathtaking views all around. The barn includes five stalls and a riding arena. If being in the saddle triggers achy muscles, the home includes a massage room and a spa with a sunken hot tub. A complete retreat, as it should be with that price tag.


This private island has seven white sand beaches and is a 90-minute plane ride from Miami.

A newly built, 15,500-square-foot estate home on the south side of Belvedere Island facing San Francisco Bay was the runner up. The sale price was not disclosed, though it was at least $24 million, the price tag on the third highest sale in September. That property, a private, 167-acre island in the Exuma Cays in the Bahamas, includes its own marina, heliport, seaplane ramp and “natural” roadways. Two main residences grace a hilltop.  Ah, the price of a private paradise.
