When searching for a retreat from the hectic life of the city and suburbs what are you looking for in a property? Some of us long for seclusion but many others seek out access to wonderful amenities and activities. Fresh air, beautiful views and the lull of the Blue River’s water descending from the 10 Mile Range and Continental Divide make The Shores at Breckenridge a highly desired community to live and visit. This 10-acre resort community is perfectly situated along Breckenridge’s Blue River almost equal-distance from the Town of Breckenridge and Frisco, Colorado.
56 semi-custom paired homes and clustered single-family, detached homes with three or four bedrooms and three and one-half baths have extensive outdoor space surrounding each structure and great fishing out your front door. Not all in your family might find fishing is their passion which in their case and yours The Shores is perfect as it offers a plethora of activities and things to do from its doorstep.
Golf is across the street at the Jack Nicklaus-designed Breckenridge Golf Club. The bike path, yards away from The Shores leads to all of Summit County’s towns and beyond. Look out the window and you will see the Breckenridge Ski Resort’s five huge peaks spanning 2,908 acres. No need to drive, the Summit Stage bus stops and transports you from the nearby bus shelter to the resort. If a Nordic adventure is more your style the adjacent bike path that runs by the community is groomed and transformed into a fabulous trail to skate or classic ski during the winter and connects to the Gold Run Ski Center and Frisco Nordic Center.
The newly built homes at the Shores are bright and well thought out with luxurious natural finishes, lofted ceilings and great spaces for families to gather and relax.
