Former Lehman Brothers CEO Dick Fuld has put his massive Sun Valley compound up for auction

Former Lehman Brothers CEO Dick Fuld is putting his gorgeous Sun Valley, Idaho compound up for auction, the Wall Street Journal reported.

The 71.3-acre Big Wood River Estate was originally offered for $US59.5 million. Concierge Auctions estimates that the property could fetch anywhere from $US30 to $US50 million when it hits the auction block on August 19th. It’s listed “without reserve” meaning it will go the highest bidder.

The listing says the property is owned by Fuld through a trust.

Before its demise in 2008, Lehman Brothers was the fourth largest Wall Street bank. Fuld had been the CEO since 1994. Since the bankruptcy, Fuld has kept a relatively low profile. He recently reemerged at a small-cap conference this spring.

Now, let’s take a tour of his compound.

The Sun Valley estate sits on 71.3 acres, offering seclusion and privacy.

The property, which is located at the foot of Bald Mountain, is just a short drive from ski resorts and hiking/biking trails.

Here's a shot of the main house.

The three stone/timber residential buildings were designed by architect Alan Wanzenberg.

There's a charming guest house that overlooks a pond. It has 3 bedrooms and 3 full and one half bathrooms. It features a fire pit and a hot tub.

Wouldn't it be nice to roast S'mores right here?

The estate is made up of nine original lots that were assembled together. There's still plenty of room to build new structures on the property.

The property is also located on a 2,100-foot stretch of the Big Wood River.

There's excellent trout fishing just steps away from your front door.

You're literally located amongst nature.

You can enjoy that outdoor life and fresh air on the spacious porches.

There's some excellent outdoor dining areas too.

Here's a quick peak inside the entry to the home. In total, the property has 11 bedrooms and 10 full bathrooms and one half bath.

There's plenty of room for entertaining guests and relaxing.

It would be nice to curl up by that fireplace in the winter.

Now let's revisit Fuld's days at Lehman Brothers...
