Saddlewood for ski season

special to the daily

The upper Four O’clock area of Breckenridge is an upscale neighborhood which boasts a mixture of luxury mountain homes, elaborate lodges and comfortable townhomes and condominiums. Today’s featured residence is a lovely three bedroom, three bath townhome located at 73 Bluff Circle in the Saddlewood neighborhood. Offered at $1,175,000, this home is just five blocks from the dining, shopping and entertainment of Main Street. The Snowflake lift which whisks you up to Peak 8 skiing is a stone’s throw away, while the free bus service is just below the property.

The home sits at the end of a quiet cul de sac, minimizing traffic. Exterior stairs lead up to a covered porch, while the front door opens into a slated foyer with a coat closet and space for a boot bench.

Stairs up open into the great room with interesting roof lines. A solid stone fireplace with raised hearth and wood mantle graces one wall, providing a focal point. Wood floors add mountain ambience. One wall features sliding glass doors which open onto a sunny deck with southwestern exposure. This provides the perfect spot for a barbeque or afternoon happy hour.

The dining room adjoins the space to the left. The kitchen features granite countertops in buff and charcoal with medium natural alder cabinetry. Appliances are from the Kenmore Elite series and include a refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, and range with four conventional burners and one handy flat top burner. Additionally, on this level is the first of the three bedrooms. This one is spacious and contains two sets of bunks. It shares the nearby tiled bath with the main living space.

Stairs up from the main level lead to the master suite with soaring cathedral ceilings and terrific views of Baldy Mountain. The ensuite bath has double sinks, separate shower, and a two person spa tub. The decor here features honed travertine counters and surrounds with tumbled travertine trim. Double closets area a special amenity.

Stairs down from the main level lead into a family room which is the perfect spot for media viewing or a quiet book. Doors open onto the garden level to soak up the southern sun. There is a laundry on this level, as well as access to the garage. The third bedroom and bathroom also reside here.

Throughout the home, details include solid core three panel doors, lovely woodwork and simple, classic design. Never rented, the home is in excellent condition with comfortable furnishings and a warm, welcoming feel. With excellent bedroom separation, and a cozy, open floorplan, this home offers the perfect base for decades of mountain adventures.
