Luxury Property: Historic South High
The charming residence at 215 South High Street sits right in the heart of the historic downtown area. With a historic barn adding space and storage, and a detached two-bedroom guesthouse, this beautiful home is offered at $1,695,000. Together, there are six bedrooms and five-and-a-half baths. Additionally, there is a garage and a setting just a block from the park.
The homes sit on a corner lot just three blocks from Main Street, with views toward the ski area. The covered wide porch of the main house provides the perfect spot for morning coffee in warmer months. The front door opens into the heart of the home with the living area on the left. A raised hearth dry-stack stone fireplace lends warmth to the room. A media center is also built in to maximize space. Wood floors continue to the right into the adjoining dining room. This area enjoys a bay window which drinks in the southern sun.
The kitchen enjoys antiqued sage cabinets which echo the four-panel doors of the rest of the house. Appliances include a Wolf Gourmet range, Sub Zero refrigerator with freezer drawers, an Asko dishwasher and a Kitchen Aid microwave. Counter seating adds a cozy factor, while a built-in bar area adds convenience. A nearby powder room has a half-wall of wood batten, adding to the Victorian style.
To the left of the living area is an office with a private entrance. This could also be additional sleeping space or a den. Also on this level is a bedroom suite with a walk in closet and adjoining bath.
Stairs down lead to a family room with a media area. A laundry on this level features Maytag appliances and a utility sink. There is another bedroom suite on this level, allowing excellent privacy.
Stairs up from the main level lead to the master, which enjoys southern exposure. Double closets are a lovely feature. The ensuite bath has double sinks, a jetted tub and separate shower. There is an additional bedroom on this level as well, which enjoys terrific mountain views.
Next door is the two-bedroom cottage, imaginatively painted in opposite colors. A full living area, laundry and kitchen make it completely self-contained.
Throughout the home, every attention has been paid to detail, with careful finishes. One example would be the wooden steps with slate insets which descend to the first level. Although the original home was built early in the twentieth century, the home has been updated to have a clean, contemporary feel and the finishes are a great backdrop for any decor. With the free bus just steps away, and the charm of a true Breckenridge classic, this is a home that welcomes you and yours for all the decades to come.
