A 16,513-square-foot mansion in Cherry Hills Village sold for $9.45 million last month, taking the top spot among local home sales for the month.
It was also the second-highest sale for the entire year, trailing only the February sale of a penthouse atop the Four Seasons.
The five-bedroom, eight-bathroom property at 7 Cantitoe Lane, which sits on five acres, sold on Dec. 30, less than two months after it was listed.
The seller was Quinn Holdings Ltd Liability Co., whose registered agent is Donald V. Bailey, according to property records.
Bailey is the CEO and founder of Triton Investment Company, a real estate investment firm in Greenwood Village, according to its website. He and his wife Leslie Stanford are also part-owners of the 8,400-acre C Lazy U Guest Ranch in Granby, according to the ranch’s website.
The Cherry Hills property was built by Englewood-based Mesa Properties in 2002, and features a Texas limestone exterior, expansive gardens, “mountain views from every room of the home,” and a separate guest house, pool house and even a greenhouse, according to the listing.
The couple purchased the home for $8.75 million in 2005, according to property records, and they previously listed the mansion for $11.9 million in 2018.
Linda and Josh Behr with LIV Sotheby’s International Realty represented the sellers.
The buyer was Rebecca Jo Darby acting on behalf of a trust, according to property records, and was represented by Kristiane Lucas with Corcoran Perry & Co. Realtors.
