Ultimate location and flawless finishes


With ski season almost upon us, it is the perfect time to consider a home near the gondola. Our featured residence is in position to take every advantage of its location just off Main Street in Breckenridge. Offered at $2,995,000, the four bedroom, five bath home sits on Watson Avenue looking at the mountains, with the Blue River rushing past it.

The home has a small area outside for visitor parking, as well as a one car garage. The front entry opens into a mud area with double coat closets. To the right, a bedroom suite enjoys an adjacent bath with gorgeous tile, and a copper vessel sink. This suite enjoys a private exterior entrance.

Straight ahead, there are two bedroom suites. Each takes advantage of the mountain vistas, as well as the river location. One enjoys an ensuite bath with cherry cabinetry and twin porcelain sinks. Finishes here are a striking combination of traditional cherry and walnut cabinets, with modern details like ceramic and glass tiles which add a thoroughly refreshing edge. The other bedroom on this level boasts a glass and ceramic tile-faced fireplace with a mirrored firebox. Matching tile trims the luxurious bath. Tooled leather has been applied to the lower half of the detail wall in a rich burgundy.

Stairs up from the main level highlight black iron railings punctuated with copper aspen leaves. The main living area takes advantage of the top floor view. One wall of the space is glass which opens to a spacious deck with southwestern exposure. The deck features direct views of the Ten Mile Range and the Gondola origin, with the river rushing by. In any season, this is the place to enjoy Happy Hour with a view!

The flooring is wide planked hardwood with handscraped detail. A fireplace with glass tiled fascia centers the space, while the dining area is to the right. Dark wood beam detail highlights the ceiling. The open kitchen features rich walnut cabinets, again with a contemporary edge. A double copper farmhouse sink takes center stage, with views of Baldy Mountain out the east-facing window. Appliances include Sub Zero refrigerator and refrigerator drawers, Kitchen Aid dishwasher, and a Wolf range with grill.

Carpeted stairs down from the entry lead to a comfortable family room with a dry stacked grey and beige stone fireplace. The adjacent wet bar has a Sub Zero wine cooler, refrigerator drawers, and a GE microwave. The door here leads out to the most unique feature of the home- a spa and a stone patio with firepit which sits right by the river. Also on this level is a laundry with Affinity washer and dryer and an Asko drying cabinet. A nearby office/ 5th bedroom with spectacular views shares a retro bath with the family area. An additional bedroom has another tiled bath.

This home has an excellent floorplan, and a sophisticated design scheme that belies its historic exterior. If you are longing to be part of Breckenridge’s upcoming heritage, this is the perfect spot to be in the center of it all!
