This home in Breckenridge, Colorado, takes log cabin living up a notch or two.
So far up, in fact, that the house straddles a year-round creek, which flows under the primary bedroom.
Anyone using the room will not soon forget the creek is there. Two large windows in the floor, two more on either side of the room and a private deck take in constant views of the rushing water. The creek can be seen or heard from most of the other rooms in the house as well.
The distinct mountain retreat was built in 1974 and then expanded with an addition designed by Summit County architect Jon Gunson. The remodel included a new entry, hallway, bunk room and bathrooms.
The more than 1,800 square feet of interiors feature chinked log walls, wood floors and vaulted beamed ceilings. Antler chandeliers and a wood stove add a rustic touch. A stone fireplace warms the living room.
A skylight and large windows bring natural light into the eat-in kitchen, which has peninsula seating as well as room for a dining table.
There’s more living space in the carriage house above the detached garage, which includes a wet bar, fireplace, oversized tub and shower. In total, there are three bedrooms, three full bathrooms and two three-quarter bathrooms.
A large deck provides ample space for outdoor dining, sitting around a fire pit and enjoying the hot tub.
The home sits on two acres in a quiet, established neighborhood with a mix of full-time residents and second homeowners, according to listing agent Greg Horton of Slifer Smith & Frampton Real Estate. The asking price for the property at 551 Doris Dr., Breckenridge, Colorado, is US $2.45 million.
“Our $2 million-plus range is still moving at a consistent rate,” Horton says, “especially on very unique properties such as this.”
