NBR Rich Lister snaffles luxury Aspen estate
If there’s a bargain to be had, Graeme Hart will find it.
The Kiwi packaging tycoon celebrated a frenzy of deal making earlier this year by purchasing a 16-ha estate overlooking the Aspen ski area.
Mr Hart paid $US16 million in cash for the property, half the price it was originally listed at and a 24% discount to the revised asking price of $US21 million.
“Most people aren’t in a position to consider a $16 million purchase a bargain, but that’s what just happened last week,” local real estate website Breckenbridge News reported in February.
