Luxury Property: Prefection in Highlands Park


Today’s featured residence sits on a small rise in the Highlands Park neighborhood. It enjoys a peaceful location on an acre lot and stellar views of the Breckenridge Golf Course and the Ten Mile Range. The lovely four bedroom, five bath residence at 265 Lake Edge Drive is offered at $1,895,000.

The front door opens into a slated entry in buff and light gray tones. To the right is a coat closet, while to the left, the hallway opens directly into the Great room. With tongue and groove cathedral ceilings, scraped maple floors and spectacular views from the wall of glass windows and doors, it is a great room indeed.

Doors open onto a wrap-around deck that soaks in the sun and the views. A two sided fireplace is dry stacked with a raised hearth and stone mantle. The dining room enjoys the ambience of the fireplace and more doors onto the deck. There is a nearby powder room with ceramic vessel sink.

To the right, the kitchen is centered by a Wolf Professional range and hood. Cabinets are knotty alder, while the countertops are slab granite in sage green and gray. A prep sink adds workspace and the main sink features a small bay window above it to let in natural light. Other appliances include an Asko dishwasher, Sub Zero refrigerator and Wolf microwave. The two tiered counter section adds seating.

The first of the master suites is on the main level. It has a magnificent view, cathedral ceilings and a private deck. The ensuite bath is done in travertine with double rectangular Kohler sinks, a jetted tub, shower with Euro style doors and satin nickel faucets. A custom closet and stub for washer and dryer completes the suite.

Stairs up from the main level open into a cozy loft area. This adds the perfect spot for an office, a quiet spot for a book or a game area. The second master also resides on this level, with another two-sided fireplace, custom shelving for curios and books and a custom closet. This suite also has a private deck with western exposure and direct views of Buffalo. The bath here has a jetted tub, separate shower, double sinks and granite countertops.

Stairs down from the main level lead into a carpeted family room with wiring nearby for a media center. The wet bar has slab granite counters in shades of gray, a full sized stainless refrigerator, and a dishwasher. There is a powder room nearby. The laundry on this level features Whirlpool Duet washer and dryer and granite counters. Two bedrooms on this level share a full bath with tiled floors, travertine countertops and double sinks. One has a walk in closet and doors which open to the outside.

Throughout the home, careful details and beautiful craftsmanship are the focal point. Double paneled arch doors are darker alder, lighting is beautifully done and the design is a timeless backdrop for any taste. With a spectacular setting, breathtaking views and a thoughtful, well planned layout, this home is the perfect gathering spot for all your mountain dreams.
