Third time’s the charm.
James Crowe, former Level 3 Communications CEO, sold his estate at 5000 E. Quincy Ave. in Cherry Hills Village for $11.63 million after listing the 9-acre property at least three times.
It’s the highest-priced home sale in the Denver metro since 2008, according to the Denver Metro Association of Realtors. The association defines the metro area as 11 counties: Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Clear Creek, Denver, Douglas, Elbert, Gilpin, Jefferson, Park and Weld.
As of June, Crowe had listed the property for $11.9 million. In 2017, he was asking $16 million. And in 2010, The Denver Post reported that he had put the mansion on the market a year prior, initially asking $22.9 million before dropping the price to $18.9 million.
The property was purchased on Dec. 3 by Second Season LLC, which state records show was formed by Robert Kaufman, an attorney with Greenberg Traurig. Reached Thursday, Kaufman declined to comment.
