What can your money buy in Summit Cove? If you’re looking to buy a single family home anywhere in Summit County, Summit Cove offers many affordable choices. Located between Dillon and Keystone and at the foot of Swan Mountain Road, Summit Cove is one of the few residential areas around that offers a “neighborhood” feel. Summit Cove offers nice proximity to the surrounding towns, ski resorts and I-70 without being right in the thick of it all. A peaceful neighborhood that within minutes puts you on the shores of beautiful Lake Dillon. Complete with hiking and biking trails, an elementary school, Summit Stage access, and even an Irish pub, the neighborhood of Summit Cove would be a good place to call home full time or just while you’re here on vacation! 887 Idlewild Drive is currently one of the most affordable single family homes in all of Summit Cove. Priced at $570,000 it offers a unique opportunity to own a residence on over a third of an acre with 4 bedrooms, 3 baths and 2220 square feet. Currently the home is separated into 2 apartments, each with it’s own kitchen and laundry area. Keep it as is and the long-term rental potential is well over $2,000 a month, or move in and make it a home for your family. The main and upper part of the home has been nicely upgraded with granite, slate and fresh paint. The large, fenced in backyard has beautiful landscaping underneath all of the snow! The views are fantastic looking south towards Mount Baldy and Mount Guyot and you can enjoy them from the large wrap-around deck or lower patio. Looking at sales in 2007 for all of the subdivisions within Summit Cove, you can get into a single family home under 2,000 square feet from $350,000 to $495,000. A home from 2,000 up to 4,500 square feet cost anywhere from $499,900 to $1,199,000 in 2007 dollars.
