Best Buys: Best buys in the Highlands
Ryan Summerlin September 22, 2012
The Highlands is an exclusive area in Breckenridge that borders the Breckenridge Golf Course and surrounding area. The area is very beautiful with rolling hills, awesome views of Breckenridge Ski Resort, golf course views and mountain views. There are over 250 homes within the 13 subdivisions of the Highlands. The homes vary in size from 2,733 square feet up to 7,949 square feet. These are all custom homes that sit on at least a half an acre or more.
In the past, it was unheard of to buy a home in the Highlands for under $1 million. The price per square foot was also much higher than it is today. There are currently 30 homes for sale in the Highlands and the average price is $368 per square foot.
The first best buy featured is located across from the third hole at the Breckenridge Golf Course. The 2,733-square-foot home features four bedrooms and four baths, with two of the bedrooms as master suites. When you walk into the house, it has a nice flowing open floor plan leading you to the living room, dining area and magnificent chef’s kitchen. There are two fireplaces, one located in the master suite and the other in the living room.
This beautiful home sits on a sunny half-acre corner lot. This best buy was built in 1997 and is $281 per square foot. Kathy Kristina at Breckenridge Real Estate Kompany offers this property for $768,000.
The second best buy is a large, 3,914-square-foot home with floor-to-ceiling windows everywhere to enjoy the beautiful mountain views. This home has four bedrooms and three baths with a bonus caretaker apartment above the garage. The home features a large gourmet kitchen and cathedral ceilings. The home sits on 1 acre and is on a very sunny lot. This home was built in 2002 and is currently listed at $217 a square foot. This is a short sale. Daniel Webster Johnson of Resort Brokers offers the property at $849,000.
