Historic Redstone Castle in Colorado goes up for auction Friday
PITKIN COUNTY, Colo. — Colorado’s historic Redstone Castle goes up for auction Friday.
Redstone Castle is nestled between the mountains and Coal Creek, about 40 miles south of Glenwood Springs, and was recently offered for $7.5 million.
The Tudor-style estate has over 23,000 square feet of living space “with 42 rooms that range from an English-style Great Hall and a Russian-inspired formal dining room to a delicate Ladies’ Drawing Room decorated in the French style of the era,” according to Platinum Luxury Auctions.
The main residence features 24 bedrooms and 16 full bathrooms.
There’s also a 12-stall carriage house on the 150-acre property.
It was completed in 1902, for John Cleveland Osgood, who was one of the wealthiest people in the country at the time, according to the auction house.
“The Castle is filled with the finest furnishings of the period: wooden paneling designed by Gustav Stickley (famed for his work in the American Craftsman style), intricately cast brass globe lights created by Louis Comfort Tiffany (of the Tiffany & Co. family), and countless pieces of furniture and artwork collected by the Osgoods on their frequent trips to Europe still decorate the halls,” the auction house states online.
Redstone Castle was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1971.
“The Castle can serve as a private, single-family residence, or can be repurposed for various commercial uses. For example, the estate was once operated as an upscale bed and breakfast, and its currently open to the general public for regularly scheduled historic tours,” according to Platinum Luxury Auctions.
“Platinum Luxury Auctions specializes in the non-distressed auction sale of elite and distinguished properties on behalf of affluent sellers,” the company states on Instagram.
The auction of Redstone Castle is set to begin at 11 a.m. Friday, Oct. 7.
