Luxury Property: Gather on Briar Rose

Special to the DailyThe kitchen at 216 Briar Rose Lane in Breck features rustic, distressed cabinets and stainless appliances which include a GE Profile range, Frigidaire refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave.

The charming residence at 216 Briar Rose Lane in Breckenridge enjoys one of the best locations in town. Just a block off Main Street, you can walk to the gondola or stroll to breakfast on a frosty morning. Offered at $1,150,000, the five-bedroom, four-bath home sits on a quiet street with spectacular views of the Breckenridge Ski Resort.

The home sits on a small ridge on the uphill side of the street, looking at Peaks 7 and 8. It is sheltered by a stand of trees that gives a feel of privacy. A short flight of stone stairs leads up to a unique barn board door and then into the reception area.

To the right is the Great room, marked with soaring ceilings and rustic beam detail. The heart of the room is a massive wood burning fireplace with colorful Mexican tile fascia. From here, you can look directly out of the west facing window and watch the snow falling, with the ski slopes as a backdrop. The spacious room allows a large group to hang out comfortably together after a day on the mountain. The flooring throughout this area is unique- bricks in a herringbone pattern run throughout the space. An open dining room adjoins the living area, increasing the feeling of spaciousness.

To the left of the dining room is the kitchen, with rustic, distressed cabinets and stainless appliances which include a GE Profile range, Frigidaire refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave. The countertops are tile in a dark gray blue. A laundry area is off the kitchen with a large utility sink and storage area. A door from the kitchen leads out to a fabulous patio- the perfect spot for summer al fresco dining or a gathering.

There are two bedrooms on this level. The one to the right of the living space boasts a wood stove, built in library and art storage, and doors out to the patio. One of the baths on this level is shared with the main living area. Tiled, it lies conveniently near the main entrance of the residence.

Stairs down from the main level of the home reveal a cozy second living area- the perfect spot for media viewing or a game night. The additional bedrooms and baths are on this level. This home has plenty of sleeping space for everyone, as well as great spaces for gathering. Additionally, there is a sunroom with plenty of glass letting in the light- it’s a great place to watch the snow fall. The two car garage also adds storage for mountain toys.

The home throughout has interesting and unique features which add an artistic flair. The colorful Mexican tiles on the fireplace are repeated in the kitchen area, linking the design together. Barnboard siding in the Great Room sets a mountain tone. The home has an excellent rental history and is particularly suited to visitors, since it is within an easy walk to skiing, shopping, dining, and nightlife.

This spacious lodge on Briar Rose is an interesting and unique residence that is waiting to welcome you and yours for all your mountain adventures.
