In the Heart of Breckenridge

BONNIE SMITH ALLEN

With many new projects appearing in and around Breckenridge, it is important periodically to take a second look at some of the existing opportunities that are offered around town. After all, since some of these properties have been here for awhile, they often have prime locations that can’t be undersold. Such is the beautiful two bedroom, two bath condominium at 402 West River Mountain Lodge. Located right in the very heart of town, this spectacular unit has been upgraded to reflect more current finishes, and its amenities and location are a real plus.Offered at $815,000, this home has a lovely open floor plan with a bedroom suite and bath at either end to afford excellent privacy. The door opens to a marble floored entry with a coat closet and handy mud area. The great Room features the soaring ceilings of the top floor penthouse, as well as a corner fireplace. Large west-facing windows look up at the ski area. The new carpeting is a lovely sculpted buff color which is the perfect backdrop for any décor. To the left, the dining room boasts two double sliding glass doors, soaking up more of the view. There is also a glassed-in spa room with views to the west and south.To the left of the entry, the kitchen has been upgraded with a Frigidaire refrigerator, GE range and built in microwave, and a Kenmore dishwasher, all in a mixture of stainless and black. The black marble floors are a lovely yet practical touch. Countertops are granite with black and green tones. A raised counter runs the length of the galley kitchen, adding additional casual seating. A nearby washer and dryer adds a convenient touch.Throughout the home, there is a Native American motif with wall art, imaginative use of warm wall colors like Arizona gold and terracotta, and comfortable furnishings. The building itself offers a stellar location just steps away from Main Street, with the Blue River running the length of the building. Underground heated parking, elevators, and a concierge service add another dimension in addition to the convenience of the front desk. A ski concierge assures that guests need never lug there skis upstairs. There are also a heated outdoor pool, spas and common area barbeques, as well as meeting rooms and a workout facility.At the end of the day, skiers and riders can cruise all the way down Four o’clock Run and simply walk across the street to their condominium. After a spa or dip in the pool, you are right in the middle of the central core with dining, cocktails, shopping, or the Riverwalk Arts complex to choose from. With so many things to recommend it, don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy a downtown lifestyle and all of the beauty of our mountain community.Bonnie Smith-Allen, ABR, CIPS, CRB, CRS, GRI, MRE is Owner/ Managing Broker of Exclusive Mountain Retreats Real Estate, the Exclusive Summit County Board of Regents Member of Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate.
