BY BONNIE SMITH ALLENThe building at Powderhorn Condominiums on Columbine Road enjoys one of the best locations in the town of Breckenridge. It backs to the river and fantastic views, yet is walking distance to the ski lift and to shopping, dining and Main Street. The penthouse, from its perch on the top floor, enjoys sweeping views of the entire vista. Offered at $1,089,000, this four bedroom, three and a half bath condominium yields a price per square foot of $583. Additionally, there is covered parking beneath the building, an elevator and community amenities such as the pool and spa close by.

The elevator whisks you up to the top floor with a sheltered walkway to keep off rain and snow. The front door leads directly into the remodeled mud area with newly tiled floors. A boot bench sits conveniently on your left with cubbies for gear built in around the area. Directly ahead is the laundry area, and to the right is additional storage as well as a half-bath with pedestal sink.Three of the bedrooms are on this level. To the left is the master suite, with a small deck accessed through the glass doors. A tiled bath, double sinks and walk-in closet complete the suite. The next two bedrooms feature sunny windows and share a Jack-and-Jill bath, again in neutral tile.

The hall is tiled all the way into the spacious kitchen with new natural wood cabinetry. Appliances here are stainless and include a Whirlpool range, microwave, Whirlpool Gold refrigerator and a Frigidaire dishwasher. An oversized, one-bowl, stainless rectangular sink is a lovely gourmet touch here. There is plenty of cabinet and work space with countertops in warm tones of rust and copper. A side bar area allows additional eating space for convenience. The pantry is lockable for the homeowner who chooses to rent for investment.Just past the kitchen is the dining area framed with windows. The views are spectacular everywhere in the living space, looking down to the river, into the old growth evergreens and directly out to the mountains. Glass doors here lead onto the long deck with ample room for breakfast or an afternoon siesta. The living area features soaring ceilings and a fireplace, as well as a wall of windows out to the vistas beyond. A mounted plasma television and speakers everywhere, included in the sale, provide a media center.

Stairs up from the main level lead to a second master suite, this one with cathedral ceilings and a loft feel. There is room for a sitting area which is surrounded by windows with the sunlight flooding in. The bath has double sinks and beautiful tile work in warm rusts and neutrals. A small, private deck completes the area.With covered parking, a convenient walk from the bridge behind the building to the ski lift at the base of Peak 9 and an in-town location, this lovely unit could be the perfect four season home you’ve always dreamed about.
