Breckenridge home and Main Street lights

I was talking with the seller on a listing I have that’s just south of Breckenridge. He was saying that the description of the house would tempt him if he wasn’t ready to sell it. It made me think about if it would tempt me if I wanted a second home near Breckenridge. The answer is yes, and these are the reasons; first would be the size of the house, there are three bedrooms and three baths, and lots of other potential sleeping space with a den and office. The home has a total of 2448 square feet plus an attached two car garage. The lower level bedroom and bath could be a lock off if you wanted to have a caretaker or “mother-in-law” situation in the home. The living area is where everyone gathers with the wood burning fireplace the focal point of the room. Another thing I really like is the location. The home is just a mile south of Breckenridge, an easy drive into town, yet you are away from the crowds. It’s also within walking distance to Goose Pasture Tarn, which is a fishing and boating lake restricted to area owners. A little father to the south is the Spruce Creek Trail to Mohawk Lakes, a fun day of hiking or if not into the 8 mile round trip hike, 4 wheel drive roads get you pretty close.

The town of Breckenridge is ideal for the family that likes to ski and shop, seems like that should fit about anyone. The town was founded in 1859 and has gone through several boom times, with placer and hard rock mining in the 1800’s and then dredging in the early 1900’s, now it’s the tourist boom. Breckenridge ski area has over 2000 skiable acres with 30 lifts. For the shopper a charming Main Street with shops of all kinds, among my favorites is Arts Alive, a co-op artist gallery (you can see my quilts there), Joy of Sox and Tea Time Quilting and Stitchery which as fabric and yarn. There are lots of restaurants to choose from too. Breckenridge is popular winter and summer. The other night I took a video of the lights on Main Street.
These stay up through the winter.
