Blue River house description

This spacious, open 2600 square foot home sits majestically in the midst of the Arapaho National Forest amongst the tall pines and the colorful aspens. This newly furnished home features two living areas, one upstairs and one downstairs. The large open floor plan is perfect for family gatherings or multi-couple getaways. Our new Arctic Spa hot tub is great for soaking and star gazing or watching the snowflakes fall while relaxing & soaking after a long day on the slopes or trails.

A full, modern kitchen upstairs features granite countertops, a gas range with a warming drawer & convection oven, a full well stocked walk-in pantry as well as plenty of pots, pans and accessories to make a full family meal. We have a Keurig coffee maker with a 'starter supply' of coffee, tea and hot chocolate. Feel free to bring along your favorite brew. WE also have a regular Mr. Coffee coffee pot for those that prefer a full pot. The downstairs kitchen features an electric range, dishwasher, refrigerator and microwave.

Keep everyone entertained with a flat panel TV in almost every bedroom and living area, complimentary broadband wireless, cable TV, a computer in the upstairs common area, and a Wii and a DVD player with plenty of movies for everyone to enjoy. We also have a wide variety of board games.

Curl up with one of our books in our comfortable sunroom.

A spacious, ground level two car garage is a perfect place to store all of that ski gear and it includes a boot and glove dryer to keep those ski boots toasty all night long. Feel free to park your car in the garage…it will accommodate most cars and SUVs.

Exterior doors on the home are equipped with electronic touch pads to facilitate easy access…no keys to handover or lose track of.

There is plenty of room to spread out in this home. Even if there are only two couples in your party, you can each have your own floor with a complete kitchen, laundry room and living room. The home is bright, open and features plenty of windows to allow you to experience beautiful mountain living.

The master bedroom features a king-sized memory foam bed. Two other bedrooms each feature a queen-sized memory foam beds. Each bed has high quality, Egyptian cotton sheets, down comforters as well as firm and soft pillows.

Give the kids their own space…our fourth bedroom features a bunkroom. One bunk bed with twin size bed on top, and full size bed on bottom and a separate twin bed can easily accommodate four. We also have a pack and play for your little ones. Along with a blow up air mattress if needed (queen size).

Our master bedroom has an en suite master bath that includes a very large two-person Jacuzzi jetted tub, separate water closet and a full closet. Each of the other bathrooms comes equipped with a toilet, tub and shower. Two water heaters provide plenty of hot water for all of those competing demands. Every shower has a Shampoo/Conditioner/Bath Gel dispenser... so no need to bring your own supplies.

A large 1,000 square foot outdoor, elevated deck adds to the ambience of this mountain retreat. Sip your coffee, enjoy your favorite beverage, fire up the grill or simply sit and watch the wildlife in this outdoor space. Enjoy the Arctic Spa hot tub too...it will accommodate 5-6 people.

Come and enjoy the beauty of this mountain retreat. We are pet friendly, family oriented and have worked hard to think of each and every detail to make your stay in the Breckenridge area special.

                  Car: Necessary

                  Goose Pasture Tarn is less then 2 miles from our house. Our home is 3.8 miles from downtown Breckenridge & the Breckenridge Ski Resort. You can ride a free shuttle to Keystone, Copper Mountain, and Araphao Basin resorts. Shuttle is located at Breckenridge Gondola Lot.

                  Community playground with slides, swingsets, picnic tables for children in our neighborhood within walking distance from house.

                  Pennsylvania Gulch is a lesser known snowshoe south of the Breckenridge Ski Resort and is literally in our backyard so to speak. Great hiking or mountain biking trails for summer. Amazing snowshoeing and snowmobiling in the winter months.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2013

                  About the owner: Samantha grew up in a military (Navy) family moving from place to place... Married Mike, a military (Army) man... Yes, it made for some interesting conversations at family gatherings. Mike retired from the Army in 2007 and continues to work in the defense industry. Samantha is a Financial Advisor that works with Soldiers and their families. We love the outdoors and our dogs and horses. We recently moved to Elizabeth, CO which is about 40 minutes from Aurora/Denver from Central Texas..

                  Why the Owner Chose Blue River:
                  We were invited up to the Breck area to ski with some friends that we were stationed with in Germany. We both fell in love with the area and were determined to find a place to 'escape' the Texas heat. Our search brought us to this wonderful home that is just a short distance from all the activities in Breckenridge... but still has that serene peaceful feeling of being in the country. Sitting up on the second story deck drinking a cup of coffee while watching the moose (yes, moose) wander around below is the ideal start to the day. Being minutes away from great hiking, biking, fishing, and skiing is a perk too. Having a dog friendly neighborhood was key for us too. Being able to jump in your car and drive less than 5 miles to great food, shopping and entertainment and skiing makes this the full package. It just doesn't get any better than this. If you love all things outdoors... this is the perfect place..

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Two seperate kitchens, living areas and laundry facilities (one on each floor) makes this a great place for big families or many couples. Lots of space to spread out. Flat panel TV's in bedrooms and living rooms. Quiet reading room upstairs so you can enjoy the sun and read a great book. Wii, DVD player and moves, games and puzzles in living areas for family fun time. Wifi throughout the house. Computer station upstairs just in case you forgot your computer. Variety of toys for all ages. Outdoor playground right around the corner. We have tried to think of everything to make your stay enjoyable and worry free to include all the bulky baby items such as a pack n play, highchair, booster chair, baby gates (for the stairs), plates, sippy cups, etc. we even tried to think of the four legged family members...water/food bowls, crates, toys and an endless supply of tennis balls.
