Autumn at the Overlook


There is no more breathtaking spot to view the fall color in Breckenridge than from the deck of the home at 124 Overlook Drive. This four bedroom, four bath home sits majestically on its one acre lot looking down over the valley floor and eye to eye with Baldy Mountain, Quandary, and the Breckenridge Ski area. Offered at $1,499,000, the 4,384 square foot home also offers a two car garage, a location close to the free bus to the slopes and around town, and walking distance to the dining, pool and fitness area of the Lodge and Spa.

The home is set well back from the quiet street. The main door opens into a tiled entry with a dining room on the right which features rich red walls.

Straight ahead is the great room, anchored by a stone two-sided fireplace which takes up most of the west wall and reaches to the cathedral ceiling. A media area is built in to the stone as well. The raised hearth and wooden mantle add mountain details. The soaring ceiling features beam detail. Floors are wood with a golden hue. The entire south-facing wall is windows, soaking up the view of the mountains directly, as well as looking down to the spectacular valley floor below.

The adjoining dining area enjoys the other side of the fireplace. Doors lead out to the expansive deck which takes in the sun and views from all directions. The deck runs the entire length of the home and provides the perfect spot for barbeques, cocktails or a quiet book.

The kitchen looks out to the mountain vistas as well. Cabinets are in a natural wood. Appliances include two Kitchen Aid dishwashers, a five burner Thermador cooktop, Thermador wall oven, Sharp convection/microwave oven and a Sub Zero refrigerator. A nearby pantry adds convenience, as does the laundry on this level which has storage and a Maytag Neptune washer and dryer. The entry to the two car garage is conveniently located nearby.

To the left of the living space is a bedroom suite with tiled bath nearby which serves the den area which is also on this level. Stairs up from the main floor lead to a loft hallway which enjoys views of the mountains as well as the intricate beam detail of the ceiling timbers. Two additional bedrooms lie to the left, each with a tiled bath.

To the right, the grand master suite features another stone fireplace and a window seat, as well as a sitting area taking advantage of the southwestern exposure and the ski area views. The large ensuite bath has double sinks, a two headed shower, and a jetted tub.

Throughout the home, the orientation is all about the mountain views and the sunny exposure. The home has a well thought out floor plan which flows well for a gathering. With a private setting and the nearby amenities, as well as hiking trails close by, this is the perfect spot to enjoy all the seasons of our Colorado paradise.
