A Polo Club mansion sold for $9 million last month almost a year after hitting the market, earning the top spot on the metro area’s top home sales list.
The 10,177-square-foot newly rebuilt home with five beds and seven baths at 1 Polo Club Lane in Belcaro went up for sale for $9.35 million on Aug. 15.
The couple sold the home to Polo Club Ventures LLC, which is managed by Amy Zupon and Gabe Koroluk, for $9 million on June 30, according to public records. Zupon is the CEO of Denver-based software company Vertafore. Koroluk manages investment portfolios for wealthy individuals and is also the founder of Greenwood Village-based nonprofit Treeline Pass, according to its website.
Sellers Sissel and Roland Eckenhausen purchased the mansion in Denver’s exclusive Polo Club community in 2016 for $3.75 million, according to property records. Sissel is a Realtor for Coldwell Banker and was previously CEO of Premier Concepts, a now-dissolved jewelry company based in Aurora, according to a 2000 Denver Post article.
“The original home, which was built in 1979, was in need of renovation, so we saw this as an opportunity to create our own vision,” Sissel told BusinessDen in August. “Our favorite feature of the house, where family and friends mostly gather, is the large kitchen and great room, which opens up to the outdoor kitchen and cozy fire pit area.”
Listing agents Sandy Weigand and Chuck Gargotto with Kentwood Real Estate DTC represented the Eckenhausens. Christopher Bouc and Ian Wolfe with LIV Sotheby’s International Realty represented the buyers.
The last single-family home to sell for at least $9 million locally was also in Cherry Hills Village for $9.45 million in December, according to past BusinessDen reporting.
