Today’s featured home is the perfect spot for four season gatherings. The four bedroom, three and a half bath home at 567 Highlands Drive in Breckenridge has 3,740 square feet of living space, a two car garage, and spectacular views of the Ten Mile Range. Offered at $1,647,500, this beautiful new home offers an excellent location, open, sunny floor plan and direct views of the Ten Mile Range.

The entry opens into a stone foyer and then into the high-ceilinged Great room with breathtaking mountain views directly ahead. Exposed beams overhead punctuate the cathedral ceiling and floors are planked walnut. A soaring moss rock fireplace engages the left wall. Doors lead out to the first in a series of decks, this one with western exposure.

To the right is the open kitchen with knotty alder cabinets in a mix of natural and antiqued black and countertops in charcoal, sage and beige tones of slab granite. The appliances include a Sub Zero refrigerator, Marvel wine refrigerator, Asko dishwasher, Wolf microwave, and Wolf range with six burners and double ovens. A travertine backsplash adds classic beauty, and a water spigot behind the range adds a European detail. The two level bar adds seating and there is a prep sink for convenience. The walk in pantry completes the space.

The adjoining dining area features doors outside to the barbeque deck and stunning views. To the right is a slated hall and mudroom area and a laundry spotlighting Maytag Epic Z washer and dryer. The oversized two car garage is accessed here, with plenty of storage.

To the left, the master suite has a fireplace with travertine fascia. The adjoining bath has a two headed shower, one a rain head. The double sinks are rectangular and the oval jetted tub enjoys the corner. Counters are travertine slab in a soft warm cocoa. European glass doors surround the shower and double walk in closets complete the suite.

Additionally, on this floor, is an office or fifth bedroom, as well as a powder room with vessel sink in a russet color and matching glass tile trim.

Stairs down lead into a family room with doors out to the patio level. The fireplace has a raised hearth and slate details. A wet bar encases the back wall, with slab granite countertops, a GE Profile microwave and refrigerator, as well as a wine cooler. Details are impeccable, such as the round hammered metal hardware which complements the satin nickel faucets and metal detail throughout the home. To the left is a wine room with all of the accoutrements. Next is a fitness/office space, followed by a second master which is almost a perfect replica of the main level master. To the right, two bedrooms share a bath.

The home has a warm welcoming feel, two large gathering spots, and careful attention to detail which includes double paneled solid core doors and quality finishes. A firepit claims center stage outside on the ground level. This lovely residence is the perfect spot to create a base for all of your mountain adventures. Don’t miss the opportunity to make this home your welcoming haven throughout the seasons.
