An equine veterinary facility said to be the largest in the western United States is to be auctioned late this month, with the opening bid set at $US1.25 million.
Online real estate auction firm Micoley.com said the opening bid was well below the original listing price of just under $US2 million.
The Wisconsin-based auction firm said the property is known to be the largest equine veterinary facility in the Western US.
It says it as a high-tech, full service clinic on 7.36 acres.
The complex, sited near the equine ranches of the Wasatch Range in Utah, is scheduled for auction on October 26.
The former Mountain Horse Medical Clinic served the entire region west of the Rocky Mountains with state-of-the-art large animal veterinary equipment, Micoley.com said.
The facility can be used by a qualified veterinary surgeon for complex surgical procedures, it says.
In addition to equine and large animals, the clinic also serves owners of dogs, cats, rabbits, and other household animals in and around the Park City, Utah region.
With visibility from the freeway and several horse ranches nearby, the facility features large barn doors and open floorplans. It also features a hospital building, barn and stalls for recovery, a home converted into an office building, and two adjoining undeveloped parcels of 2.43 acres each, totaling 7.36 acres of land.
Park City, part of Utah’s “Wasatch Back”, is a major tourist destination, featuring world-class skiing and snowboarding at some of America’s most popular winter resorts.
The town of Park City is known for its charm, and part-time residents there include several Hollywood celebrities. The Sundance Film Festival is held in Park City annually.
Participants in this auction are not required to be on site, as bidding will take place online at Micoley.com.
