Luxury Property: Breathtaking luxury land

Special to the Daily

A sparkling clear “bluebird” day in Breckenridge, Colo., is the perfect time to visit an acreage that inspires dreams. The 94.69 acre parcel on Southern Cross Trail lies on the top of a sunny hillside gazing directly at the Breckenridge Ski Area to the west and Baldy Mountain to the south. This premier spot is like no other offering in any ski town in North America.

The assemblage of land includes five separate parcels and backs National Forest land as well as the “Golden Horseshoe,” which is 8642 acres of open space jointly owned by the Town of Breckenridge and Summit County Government. Step outside your door for a cross country ski, snowshoe or snowmobile ride in winter, or ride your mountain bike in warmer months. This one of a kind opportunity is specially valued at $9,380,000.

Despite the regulations which strictly govern ski town development, this beautiful spot allows you to build a home of any size, a rarity with land such a scarce commodity. Additionally, you can build four other homes or guest homes, and outbuildings of your choice which may include caretakers’ quarters or a barn. Horses are permitted, conjuring up a vision of an early morning ride in autumn with aspen shining gold on the hillside.

Perhaps you are looking for the ideal spot for a corporate retreat or a family enclave of homes. You may instead just want the seclusion that comes with a large acreage with the changing Colorado seasons all around you. In any case, few places in the world offer the proximity to such diverse activities, as well as the privacy and access to our outdoor playground.

In every season, Breckenridge offers a four-season resort town second to none with a variety of dining, shopping, arts and nightlife options. Two world-class orchestras are in residence during the summer months in the newly expanded Riverwalk Performing Arts Center. A myriad of festivals, tours and performances include jazz, Oktoberfest, antiques, the ballet, local theatre, snowboarding, skiing and the International Snow Sculpting Championships. Unlike many mountain towns, local residents live, work and play in the community, giving vibrancy to the area year round.

Close by, Summit County offers access to six major ski resorts, gold-medal fishing, whitewater rafting, camping and five diverse golf courses. The 27-hole Jack Nicklaus-designed Breckenridge Golf Course is only a mile-and-a-half away from the site, while the new gondola to the ski resort is just two miles up the road. With endless possibilities, and something for everyone, this is a spectacular chance to enjoy Colorado’s bounty.

As Will Rogers immortalized, “Buy land, they aren’t making any more of it,” so an investment in land is a terrific step toward realizing your dreams of a piece of Rocky Mountain paradise. Against a backdrop of the sparkling Colorado blue sky, this spectacular property will answer your search for the perfect base location for all of your mountain adventures.
