Panoramas at The Highlands

BONNIE SMITH ALLEN

Everyone who lives in a mountain town knows that Memorial Day weekend brings the promise of warm weather, hiking, golf, boating, concerts, and beautiful wildflowers. There is no more perfect spot to enjoy all of these summer treats than the new residence on 265 Lake Edge Drive in The Highlands at Breckenridge. This magnificent four bedroom, five bath home is offered at $2,475,000. In addition, it includes a beautiful lot on a quiet cul de sac, and panoramic views of the Ten Mile Range, Buffalo Mountain, and the Breckenridge Golf Course.

The home is on the uphill side of the street which gives it a buffer and clear views of the mountains surrounding it. 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 wraparound deck that soaks in the sun and the views. A two sided fireplace is dry stacked with a raised hearth and stone mantle. On the other side, the dining room enjoys the ambience of the fireplace as well and has another set of doors onto the deck. Nearby, a powder room with ceramic vessel sink and slab granite counter, is a nice amenity.

To the right, the kitchen is centered by a Wolf range and Wolf professional hood. Cabinets are knotty alder, while the countertops are slab granite in sage green and gray tones. 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. A spacious walk in pantry adds plenty of storage. The two tiered counter section allows additional seating.

The first of the master suites is past the living space on this main level. It, too, has a magnificent view of the mountains and the golf course. Cathedral ceilings and a private deck offer a feeling of expansiveness. The ensuite bath is adorned 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 which enjoys views to below and out to the exterior landscape. 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 is a true master with 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. Doors lead out to the flat yard. The wet bar has slab granite counters in shades of gray, a full sized stainless refrigerator, and a dishwasher. There is an adjoining 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 out to the grounds as well.

Throughout the home, the careful details and beautiful craftsmanship shine. Doors are double paneled arch in darker alder, lighting is beautifully done, and the design is a timeless backdrop for any taste. With a spectacular setting and some of the most breathtaking views in the county and a thoughtful, well planned layout, this home is ready for all the long weekends to come.
