Perched on a private peninsula with sublime ski slope and town views, it’s difficult to imagine a more idyllic mountain setting than this Breckenridge property. Situated in Shock Hill—one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in Breckenridge—it’s a home that makes the case for the lasting, timeless appeal of traditional log cabin homes.
“I would call this a quintessential Colorado custom log home,” says Bo Palazola, real estate agent with the Day Palazola Group, part of Liv Sotheby’s International Realty. “It’s a very special lot and structure and is a true mountain legacy property.”
The home’s curb appeal is amplified by its luxurious interior and inimitable outdoor living opportunities. Giant character logs usher guests in at the entrance, serving as preludes to the bold mountain personality that permeates throughout. These unaltered, individually unique log staples continue within and are paired with exposed wood vaulted ceilings in the open living, dining and kitchen area, making for a bright, voluminous main level. Expansive windows allow for the glorious mountain views to spill in unencumbered, while the sprawling outdoor deck and patio spaces make for effortless indoor/outdoor living.
The grandeur and luxury the home exudes balance perfectly with its cozy approachability. Whether it’s curling up in front of the impressive stone fireplace, partaking in lively conversation at the pristine kitchen bar or enjoying an intimate meal from the dedicated dining room with its glamorous antler chandelier, it’s a space primed to facilitate connections both with the natural world outside and the family and friends within.
“Building lasting memories is what this home was made for,” Palazola says. “It’s an ideal gathering place for families and for holidays.”
In addition to the unmatched proximity to all that Breckenridge has to offer—including private gondola and Nordic ski trail access—the home likewise includes numerous spaces in which to relax and unwind after a day enjoying the surrounding mountain bliss. The downstairs game room is ideal for playing host to convivial gatherings, while the adjacent custom theater room is a cozy movie night escape.
Overall, the home embodies the dual luxury and laid-back character prevalent in the Breckenridge area.
“People move to and live in Breckenridge because they want to be here in this area specifically,” Palazola says. “Breckenridge has a distinct low-key vibe and a charming small-town feel—paired with its world-class outdoor recreation of course—that really make it stand out.”
The Breck Boom
A historically buzzing destination market, Breckenridge has seen an even more dramatic rise in popularity and influx over the past year.
“Our high-end luxury market in particular has seen tremendous growth, and it’s not slowing down,” Palazola says. “We’re seeing a lot of people choose Breckenridge as the place where they want to not just work remotely, but also live their lives, so buyers need to come ready to commit.”
