The view to the Tarn

Special to Summit Homes & Properties


The home at 50 Alpenview Road sits up on a ridge in the Spillway neighborhood of Blue River just a mile and a half south of downtown Breckenridge. From this vantage point, the majesty of the mountain views and a direct look at the beauty of the Tarn combine with the southern exposure to be the perfect acre site. This beautiful five bedroom, six bath home is offered at $1,950,000. Additionally, there is a four car garage, plenty of storage and lots of additional rooms for media, work space, or wine cellar.The exterior features simple lines and river rock accents. The entry is slated and has two coat closets. To each side of the entry is a two car garage with lots of storage. Additionally on this level is a pair of bonus rooms which could house an office, media area or studio.

Stairs up lead to the next level which houses the bedrooms. There are five complete bedrooms here, all with good separation. The two on either end of the floor are identical master suites and enjoy fantastic views of the Tarn and the Ten Mile Range. Each has a walk in closet, fireplace and ensuite bath with separate shower. Two of the other bedrooms each enjoy a tiled half bath. The fifth bedroom is also a suite with a full bath. Additionally, there is a room here which could be additional sleeping space or an office.Stairs up lead into a large living room with the most fantastic views in the house. A wall of windows looks due south at the mountains and down valley to the Tarn, which the dictionary defines as a mountain lake. A river rock fireplace warms the space, while the cathedral ceiling gives an airy feel.

To the left is a formal dining room. Next is the well appointed kitchen with granite slab countertops and cherry cabinets. The double sink has south-facing windows above it which share the glorious view. Side-by-side Sub Zero refrigerator and freezer are a luxurious touch.
