Luxury Property: Breckenridge’s perfect setting

special to the daily

The spectacular residence at 215 Royal Tiger, just a few blocks from the downtown core of Breckenridge, is our feature today. The five-bedroom, three-bath, and two-and-a-half bath home is a spectacular blend of a warm, inviting floorplan and sophisticated finishes. It is offered at $2,550,000, which also includes the .55-acre lot in a quiet neighborhood with mountain views and beautiful mature trees.

The home sits up set well back from the street, with magnificent street presence. The exterior is a beautiful mix of stone, bolted beams, and reclaimed barnboard. Stone steps lead up to a covered porch and then into the stone entry with coat closet. Nearby, a powder room with vessel sink and Toto appliance speaks of the quality of the finishes throughout the home.

To the right is the magnificent great room, anchored by a massive stone fireplace with raised hearth. Floors are hand scraped hickory and give a timeless backdrop to any type of furnishings. Double sets of glass doors lead out to a sunny patio and flat, grassy yard – the perfect spot for entertaining in warmer months.

To the right, the dining room is spacious and open to the main living area. The adjoining kitchen is a masterpiece with ivory granite veined with charcoal and black. Appliances are from the Viking Professional series and include a six burner range with griddle, refrigerator, double dishwashers, and microwave. A second rectangular sink adds a second work space to the island. Just beyond the kitchen is a built in computer area. Doors on either side reveal a wine cellar and a walk in pantry. Next is the laundry, with sage cabinets, granite countertops and excellent storage.

Nearby is the mudroom which is accessed from the oversized three car garage and work area, or from the back door. A trough style sink with granite countertops and wall of cubbies provides practical amenities for the mountain lifestyle.

Stairs up from here lead into the bedroom suite area of the home. Bedrooms are spacious, with excellent separation. One suite, presently used as an office, features an adjoining studio, which would also make a captivating third master suite. The main master itself is magnificent with free standing oval tub, steam shower, split sinks, and double walk in closets.

Throughout the home, master craftsmanship shines through, with dark wood trim, gorgeous trim work and a classic, impeccable palette of neutrals. Design details include thick, undulating edge granite counters in key areas, and dark stained alder doors. The home is built with energy savings in mind, with closed cell insulation, an R40 roof and high efficiency boiler.

With a wonderful location in an established neighborhood just a few blocks from skiing, dining and shopping, a flowing, welcoming floorplan, and the finest craftsmanship, this is a home built for generations of mountain memories.
