Elegance in Juniata
On the crest of the hill on the southeast side of Breckenridge is a very special neighborhood known as Juniata. It is here, at 359 Juniata Circle, that today’s five bedroom, five and a half bath home is located. Offered at $1,840,000 for the 5,855 square feet, the home offers distinctive finishes, beautiful details and a warm, inviting floorplan with abundant space. Additionally, there is a two-car garage, a quiet neighborhood and a two-acre lot along with mountain views.The custom Sun Mountain entry door leads into the foyer with the warmth of walnut floors beckoning you inside. To the right are a coat closet and then a powder room just beyond with a vessel sink and sleek styling. Past this is the master suite with doors leading onto the patio. A walk-in closet, jetted tub and separate shower are highlights of this suite.
To the left the stunning floors lead into a dining room, complete with half of a double faced fireplace. This side has a Tuscan flavor with gold travertine fascia. On the other side of the wall is the den or study which enjoys the other side of the fireplace, this time in deep rich sienna orange marble. It provides a comfortable spot for reading or watching a movie.In the center of the home is the great room with a cathedral ceiling and a large fireplace centering the space. Elaborate rockwork and a sienna marble face continue the European feel of the room. The post and beam frame spotlights the graceful lines of the ceiling. Windows surround this area with views all the way to Buffalo Mountain. To the left are French doors leading onto a magnificent wraparound deck which enjoys the same mountain vistas.
The adjoining kitchen showcases some of the contemporary flair in the home’s details with Viking, gunmetal gray, luxury appliances which include a double wall oven, refrigerator and five-burner cooktop. Cabinets here are warm natural tones, and the counters are slab granite in a warm sage green.Beyond this area is the first of two laundry areas, this one with utility sink, maple cabinets and travertine countertops. A three-quarter bath here is convenient to the door which opens onto the deck for spa use. Next is the entrance to the garage with plenty of room for mountain toys.
Stairs down lead to the media center and spacious family room. A large, pull down screen allows spectacular movie viewing. The wet bar is impressive with slab granite counters in warm caramel tones, a dishwasher and a microwave. A fireplace here lends additional warmth. Two bedrooms are located here, each with good closet space. A walk-out leads to the large concrete patio with a wood burning outdoor fireplace. The bath is done in marble and has a sauna as well as a steam shower. Additionally, there is another laundry on this level.A staircase up from the main floor provides one of the most spectacular design details of the home. With carved skirting and elaborate iron railings, it whisks you up to the loft area and then to another pair of bedrooms. Two baths here are done in warm neutrals and each bedroom has treetop and mountain views.
With beautiful design, lots of privacy and carefully planned details, this mountain home is a truly unique offering for your four season living.BONNIE SMITH ALLEN, ABR, CIPS, CRB, CRS, GRI, MRE is owner and managing broker of Exclusive Mountain Retreats Real Estate, the Exclusive Summit County Board of Regents Member of Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate.
