Luxury Properties: Ski In at Season’s End
April 17, 2009
The new condominium residences at Crystal Peak Lodge have an amazing location. Set at the base of Breckenridge Ski Resort’s Peak 7, they enjoy a ski-in, ski-out location and some of the most spectacular views of the surrounding mountains. Today’s featured home is the two bedroom, two bath home in Building 3 that enjoys spectacular views from Keystone to Baldy Mountain to Quandary Peak. Offered at $1,399,000, the home has been upgraded beyond all expectations!
The building itself is newly completed and enjoys a location with its own gondola stop. Parking for residents is located under the building with elevators to whisk you up to your home. The door opens to a warm buff colored travertine entry with a boot bench and coat area.
To the left is the open kitchen with custom cabinetry in dark wood with fleur-de-lis accents. This country French design element is repeated throughout the home. Countertops are slab granite in buff, butterscotch and soft charcoal tones. The appliances are from the GE Profile series and include a refrigerator with ice and water, a five burner range, dishwasher and microwave. The split countertops allow extra seating at the kitchen bar.
The adjoining dining and living areas enjoy the stellar mountain views. The fireplace centers the space and is truly unique, with copper fascia and a carved wooden mantle which repeats the fleur-de-lis motif. Above it, a huge flat screen television provides media viewing. The handscraped wood floor evokes a European flair. French doors open onto a sunny deck with breathtaking views and a southern and eastern exposure.
To the right of the living area is the first bedroom suite which shares a tiled bath with the living area. The room itself has a built in peeled log ladder to reach up to a loft with two beds and built in closet system. Below, the room has been made into a sitting room and office, with extra sleeping space from the sofa bed.
To the left of the main area, the master suite enjoys the privacy of bedroom separation. With the corner location affording extra windows, the master has spectacular views and plenty of natural light. The custom bed has under bed drawers for additional storage that span its width. The ensuite bath is tiled with warm neutrals and the slab granite countertop trims double sinks. The shower has Euro-style doors, while the tub area features a wonderful shadow box collage of sea themed natural articles. Under it, an intricate wall of tile and a custom shelf create a focal point.

Throughout the residence, peeled log details add a mountain feel and the vertical slat garrison doors an elegant touch. The door frames feature a pegged trim with the same fleur-de-lis to tie the design together.
The home itself enjoys a location rich in amenities with the new Sevens restaurant, lounge, and patio dining area just downstairs off the main level. There is also a steam room, a fitness center and ski lockers close by. Owners also enjoy a storage room with room for mountain toys. As you might guess, the one that belongs to this unit has been equipped with a storage system.
With the delights of town just a gondola ride away, and the mountain in your backyard, don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy this fabulous four season retreat.
