If my budget for a new home were up near $1,000,000, this would be my first choice. You can see an interior shot in my next post. High quality 3 & 4 bedroom.
We have had a house in Denver for about 14 years. Never before have I seen so much construction happening at one time. It’s absurd in Cherry Creek North, which is where I live, but drive along 1-25 through the core of downtown to the east, and the Highlands on the west, and cranes, and framed buildings is all you can see. I used to joke ( back in about 2006) that here in Breckenridge, that if you dug a hole, it rained and a house grew. Now in Denver the holes are bigger condo complex’s, commercial, and many, many apartments. Here in Summit County, we don’t have the place for much more than single family homesites ( 260 currently on the market). After 35 years I can speak from experience, if you want new, and you want condo, you have one, maybe 2 years at the most. If you want to build a home, or buy a spec, you have maybe 5-10 years, but, this sleepy little county I moved to 35 years ago, will soon be closing it’s doors to homeowners, as the visitors climb to maximum occupancy. 2013 was the best year ever, and wait till the numbers come in on 2014. The numbers will be through the roof.
way up high, on Rounds Rd in the Highlands, this 4 bedroom 5.5 baths plus loft, plus office, plus breakfast room, 2 bars ( 1 on each entertaining floor), a wine room, mud room, laundry/craft room, 3 car garage with lots of storage….on 3 plus acres, great views of the ski area….just 1 mile from the rec center….this Jon Gunson creation. The winners a nice couple from Wichita, KS, will won this early May.
If I had the option I’d be living here. I love the quality, the main floor bedroom and the expansive views. For under a million dollars, write one of these up, choose your customizations and sit back and wait for your nearly perfect home to be built. Remember, new projects are about to stop. Get in now for the really great buys
The Wall Street Journal thinks perhaps you need to diversify out of the stock market again. Lessons from a Bull Market!
Clearly, something is changing on Main Street. Living at Water House puts Breckenridge at your feet. The town. The mountain. Walk straight from your door to the Peak 9 QuickSilver Super6 lift. It captures the heart and soul of Breckenridge…and then some. Don’t miss out.
Take away the 75-80% Federal lands and then add probably another 5% on the north side of dedicated to agriculture that are big ranches, 6000-10,000 acres, and even include shared ranches ( more on that next week). So just about what you see, is all you’ll get. Over this next week, I will be talking about 2 more projects Slifer, Smith & Frampton is bringing to market, and that just about leaves the development Vail will eventually do at the Gondola site, but it will be guaranteed to be Vail prices in Breckenridge. So if you want new, and don’t want a house ( we still have building sites for single family homes to be built on), then you need to move quickly.
I am often asked where my office is , and I respond about half way between Clint’s and Modis, but with our fabulous new signage, you shouldn’t be able to miss us. Do be aware that we have a second smaller office at 211 North Main Street. So now you can’t miss stopping in to say hello to me. If you don’t know what Clint’s is, it’s time you learned about the best fresh baked goods in all of Breckenridge, really good coffees and teas, and a soup sandwich bar down below. Modis has been one of our best restaurants, formerly owned by Eric Mamula, of “Eric’s Down Under” and an important member of the town council.
