Highlander townhome description

Nestled next to the Snowflake lift, with access to both Peaks 8 and 9, Chateau St. Francis, in contrast to his legacy, is a professionally decorated, three bedroom/four bathroom ski home with French accents, perfect for a retreat with friends or family.

Located just a short walk from historic Breckenridge with its mining heritage, our ski chateau can be the cornerstone for a holiday in the glorious Rocky Mountains.

With 2,400 square feet of living space (231 square meters), vaulted ceilings, french inspired wooden beams, heated slate & wood flooring and two stone fireplaces, this home accommodates up to nine guests.

The townhome's layout, with the great room, dining room and kitchen on the main level and bedrooms above and below, is designed for daytime interaction and nighttime privacy.

Our ski home is located across the street from the private Snowflake Chairlift plaza (essentially ski-in/out) and just a short walk (3-4 blocks) to the center of Breckenridge.

The main level features an open floor plan and family-friendly great room including:
* a worn-in leather sectional couch, 2 deep-cushion swivel-chairs, a gas fireplace with stone hearth and elk sculpture
* vintage skiing decor i.e. skis, a toboggan & snow shoes mounted on upper walls
* a wet bar with a full length, iron cast mirror
* a wall mouted 40' Sony flat screen TV viewable from anywhere in the great room area
* a luxurious powder room with an upgraded granite wash basin & elegant aspen inspired mirror
* Colorado slate flooring with radiant floor heating

Adjacent to the great room is a private deck with a hot tub that's perfect for relaxing with the kids or a glass of wine while gazing at the night lights of Breckenridge, the Milky Way or during the day, the Colorado landscape and wildlife. The deck overlooks a 1/2 acre of wild flowers and open space (Shrine Hill) including a statue of St Francis in the rock garden. It has privacy uncommon to a ski area property. The deck also has comfortable log seating for two.

The dining area features an antique walnut dining room table and authetic indian woven rug; it sits 10 including 6 person leather seating in the dining room and the adjacent breakfast bar.

The villa's sleeping arrangements can accommodate up to 9 adults and includes:
* a top floor, professionally decorated master suite with a king sized bed, 32' flat screen TV, gas fireplace, walk-in closet, jetted tub, shower and his/her sinks
* a loft area with a deck and a loveseat sleeper perfect for relaxing with a good book
* a lower level,professionally decorated, private master bedroom with queen sized bed, full bath with jetted tub, shower, his/her sinks and walk-in closet
* a private third bedroom with twin beds, a trundle, a extra pull-out mattress and full bath

All the beds in the unit are accessorized with cotton linens.

The villa/townhome home has multiple entertainment options:
* two cable TVs
* board games
* a selection of best sellers and historic literature is located in the reading area of the loft including letters and speeches from Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln and other early US Presidents.

One of our favorite areas of the home is the loft where we'll relax privately to reflect on the learnings, delights and accomplishments of the day while planning the next. From the loft is a view of the night lights of Breck or durring the day, 12,000 ft. Mount Baldy.

For your convenience the townhome has a large laundry room equipped with a Bosch washer, & dryer as well as an iron and ironing board.

Attached to the home is a private heated garage with plenty of room for puting on or taking off ski boots.

Across the street from the ski villa is the Snowflake Chairlift and Blue Sky Lodge featuring a health spa, ski rentals, lift ticket office and ski storage.

                  Why the Owner Chose Highlander:
                  After looking at properties for over three years, our unit at the Highlander came avaialable. We bought it because of the architecture, the quaintness of the sub division and what we find is the ideal location in Breckenridge i.e. walking distance to most everything. We love the location of the Highlander i.e. steps from the Snowflake trailhead & chairlift as well as amenities of the Blue Sky Lodge (health spa, ski rentals, storage) while also only 3 blocks from the center of Breckenridge. The Highlander is a diverse and global community with professionals from all walks of life and the world. We share a love of skiing, the mountains and zest for life. We love Breckenridge because of: ** its authentic and colorful history ** the well preserved Victorian architecture ** the abundant and diverse options for dining ** the art & photography galleries ** the 4-season choices for adult & child activities ** the plentiful snowfall ** the very friendly locals ** the fascinating people it attracts from around the world Each season in Breckenridge is special: ** During the ski season, there's 300' of snow, 5 holidays to celebrate as a family as well as Breck's Ulr Festival and the International Ice Sculpting Competition in January ** Mud-season beckons a walk with coffee to the nearby mountain streams, beaver ponds and private lake; We also look forward to the independent films of the Breckenridge Film Festival ** Summer features all the activities of a destination vacation including art festivals on the 4th and Labor Day weekends ** In the Autumn there's the spectacular fall colors, crisp mountain air at night and the anticipation of another ski season

                  The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
                  ** Our home is not a rental unit but rather our home that we rent to guests that appreciate it like we do: ** With 2400 sq ft spread over 3 levels it has an open, spacious, mountain home feel but with privacy for sleeping ** We have new Colorado slate flooring with radiant heat throughout the main floor of the home ** It’s the most secluded of all the Highlander subdivision townhomes from the road (and bus noise) ** Its steps away from the Snowflake chair lift and local bus stop; the no fees bus can take you nearby Frisco, the outlet (discount) stores of Silverthorne, the nearby ski resorts (Copper, Keystone and A-Basin) and the Breckenridge grocery store ** The private deck & hot tub overlooks the St Francis rock garden, an adjacent open area with native plantings and the town of Breckenridge; at night, it also has a great view of the Milky Way…perfect with a glass of wine ** It's impeccably clean e.g. the heated garage floor was sealed in a light color, the 2 redwood decks & hot tub were recently re-stained ** Though a car is not necessary, the heated garage has room for putting on/taking off boots and storing skis
