A Victorian Valentine
summit homes and properties
If a Victorian home in downtown Breckenridge has always been your dream, don’t miss the opportunity to visit the home at 201 South Harris Street. Offered at $1,150,000, the home was originally built around the turn of the last century and is listed in the Registry of Historic Places. Just three blocks off of the very center of Main Street, this location is also difficult to beat.
The home sits on a corner lot, with a lovely fenced plot around it. The home is actually two separate attached residences, with private entrances. The main entrance of the primary house opens into a small foyer with a mud area for coats. The main living area of the home is literally in the “heart” or center of the residence. Two bedrooms are on this level, each with big sunny windows. A third area is a small study with exterior entrance. A tiled bath serves the space. The kitchen is spacious with a breakfast area. Appliances include a refrigerator, range and dishwasher and remodeled cabinetry.
Stairs up from the main level lead to an additional living area with mountain views. This could also be additional sleeping space. There is a washer dryer hookup on this level, as well as two additional bedrooms.
The other residence area is accessed completely separately from the main home with its own covered porch. The entry door opens into a tiled area with a coat closet. Stairs up lead into the living level with great views of the ski area. A wraparound deck soaks up the sun and basks in the mountaintop views.
The open dining room and kitchen here offer a cozy gathering spot. Appliances again include a refrigerator, range and microwave. A pair of bedrooms reside on the lower level. One has a sink and connections for a washer dryer. They share a bath on this level.
This exterior of the home has all the markings of a classic Victorian with the tri-color paint, gingerbread moldings and covered porch detail. The free bus to the ski area is a stone’s throw away, while the home is just a couple of blocks from shopping, dining and the Breckenridge Arts District.
With plenty of room for guests, a perfect location, and the details of our earlier heritage, this home is waiting for the perfect owner to celebrate the historic Breckenridge 150 year in style.
