The Ranch at Breckenridge Luxury Homes for Sale

the ranch at breckenridge luxury homes for saleThe Ranch at Breckenridge is one of Breck’s best kept secrets. This exclusive and secluded gated community is located less than 4 miles from Breckenridge Main Street, and yet feels a world apart. And the views truly don’t get any better.

Scroll down to see today’s listings in this exclusive luxury neighborhood.

This is mountain living at its finest. The Ranch at Breckenridge features luxurious homes on large homesites, ranging from 5 to 12 acres. With just 12 homesites in all, half of these homesites have been built on, which further contributes to the peaceful solitude this subdivision is known for. (When available, vacant land listings in The Ranch at Breckenridge will appear here.)

[As a side note, the property commonly referenced as the Ranch at Breckenridge PUD Phase 1 consists of 12 homesites in all. There is a second area, commonly referenced as The Ranch at Breckenridge Phase II, consisting of approximately 284 acres allowing 16 units of density. This land has not yet been developed. The entire parcel was listed in June 2016 and withdrawn from the market in July 2017 at a list price of $10,995,000.]

Properties at The Ranch at Breckenridge offer jaw-dropping views of the entire Ten Mile Range including Breckenridge Ski Resort. Soaring panes of glass and high ceilings are common, designed to take advantage of the majestic view corridors.

Homes feature the finest in high-end finishes and incorporate a variety of rich natural elements… from stone masonry to enormous timbers, beams, and logs. Designs here fit within closely defined architectural guidelines and most embrace a classic mountain aesthetic. You’ll see more than one home from illustrious local architect Jon Gunson, for example.

On your way to the neighborhood from Breckenridge Main Street, you’ll pass the exclusive luxury neighborhoods of Juniata and Baldy Ridge Estates. You’ll be near Goldenview Estates, with its gorgeous luxury homes, along with the view lots and properties of Woodmoor at Breckenridge.

The Ranch at Breckenridge is located at the top of Baldy Road. Roads up to this area are well maintained, year round. In the summertime, fields of wildflowers welcome you home. In the winter, you’ll be greeted by views of majestic snow-covered peaks and the rich scent of pine. Once inside the Ranch at Breckenridge gate, you will pass the iconic cabin that has become the signature for this prestigious subdivision.

Per HOA covenants, short term rentals in the Ranch at Breckenridge are restricted to 30 days or more, so seasonal rentals are permitted, but not weekly rentals – and this means you can count on peace and quiet even during the busy seasons in Breckenridge (especially the holidays and the month of March.) See more luxury neighborhoods that restrict short-term rentals. Some of the finest hiking, biking, snowshoeing and cross country skiing in the county are nearby.

Properties in The Ranch at Breckenridge subdivision are situated along two roadways: Little Sallie Barber Trail and Cumberland Drive.

To reach The Ranch at Breckenridge, from Breckenridge Main Street South, take a left at the last stop light in town (Boreas Pass Road). Follow this road approximately two miles to take a left on Baldy Road. In approximately one mile, take a left on North Fuller Placer. The entrance gate to The Ranch at Breckenridge is about one-half mile up this road.

Also note that, because The Ranch at Breckenridge is outside the town limits, these properties are not subject to the typical Breckenridge transfer tax of 1%.

Luxury Subdivisions that Restrict Short Term Rentals

Breckenridge and Summit County Luxury Neighborhoods where Short Term Rentals are Not Allowed

For many luxury buyers, a Summit County home purchase represents an investment opportunity where the cost and maintenance of the real estate is offset by vacation rental income.

But for others, Summit County represents a true respite… a place of peace and seclusion where they can meet other likeminded full-time residents and second homeowners and create lasting friendships with community members and neighbors as they enjoy their mountain home.

For these buyers, the return on investment is derived from any gain in appreciation, the potential tax benefits, and the lifestyle and memories they enjoy as their real estate increases in value over time.

While the majority of Breckenridge and Summit County neighborhoods allow short term rental activity, some neighborhoods restrict it or disallow it entirely – aiming to create the peaceful getaways that some buyers are specifically looking for.

Why would a luxury subdivision restrict short term rentals?
In our luxury home market, the best vacation rental management companies do a very good job of vetting the prospective renters of a home – to protect your investment. However, there exists the potential for noise and additional traffic when large groups gather in one location. And when these groups change from week to week, the impacts can be unpredictable.

How does a luxury subdivision restrict short term rentals?
A subdivision’s HOA documents – more specifically its Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions, also known as the HOA’s Declarations or CC&Rs, will lay out the guidelines for the community, including, any restrictions on short term rentals, if any such restrictions are in place.

In Breckenridge and Summit County, when these restrictions exist, they tend to be highly specific. In Highland Meadows, for example, the HOA declarations specifically state that a lease can be no shorter than 4 months and there can be no more than 2 leases in any given year.

Are these short term rental restrictions enforced?
Like any association rule, enforcement will vary with the HOA – its membership and its leadership.

You may even notice VRBO listings with homes for rent in some of these neighborhoods. But whether or not a rule is enforced, it’s essential that you know the rules that govern a community before you buy, as enforcement can change at any time – and so, for that matter, can the rules if enough community members wish to change them.

In any offer we would write on a luxury home, we would make sure to have a contingency for the review of Association Documents.

With this contingency, you have a predetermined length of time to look over the association documents in their entirety (from declarations to financials and meeting minutes), and you would be granted the ability to terminate the contract and get your earnest money back if you were to find anything objectionable in these association documents, including the restriction or allowance of short term rentals, provided you made such an objection before the predetermined deadline.

To that end, it’s very helpful to read the minutes of the Association meetings, both board meetings and member meetings, so you get a sense for what the hot buttons are in the association. You may find some members wishing the restriction would be taken away – or that an additional restriction be put in place.

This is something we’ll talk more about as we get further into the process – along with other contingencies designed to protect you, as the buyer.

Which subdivisions in Summit County restrict short term rentals?
It can be difficult to keep track of the restrictions over time, as each is governed by individual HOAs and their corresponding documents. Some neighborhoods have a number of homes that are deed restricted against short term rentals and others that are not. Some neighborhoods, such as Angler Mountain Ranch in Silverthorne, restrict such rental activity in some filings but not in others.

Among the Summit County subdivisions where there is at least some degree of restriction:
In Silverthorne, Snowbird Condos, Spyglass at Wildernest and Hideaway Townhouses. In Dillon, Glen Cove Townhomes and Soda Creek Condos, as well as Whispering Pines Ranch and Soda Creek at Lake Dillon PUD, both of which restrict rentals to 30 days or more.  In Frisco, Cobblestone Condos. In Breckenridge, Highland Meadows, Farmers Grove, Powder Downs Townhomes, Juniata Subdivision, Kingdom Park Townhomes, and Kenington Place Townhomes.

In addition, Summit County’s many deed restricted neighborhoods, discussed here, allocate most if not all of their properties for the local workforce, defined as individuals working 30 or more hours per week in Summit County, so short term rentals are disallowed here, as well.

Please note that this is not an exhaustive list of properties that restrict short term rentals. Restrictions on short term rentals is always an important topic to investigate when purchasing resort real estate, and the best Summit County luxury realtors will know the ins and outs of this topic.

This will be one of the first questions I ask you when we begin talking about Summit County real estate: Will you be renting the property when you aren’t here to enjoy it yourself? And if that answer is “no,” would you prefer a neighborhood where no one does?

Luxury Homes in Areas with Restricted Short Term Rentals

Here is more information on homes in luxury subdivisions where short term rentals are restricted in some way by the HOA. Note that some subdivisions define short term rental as those less than 30 days; others as less than 60 days or less than 6 months, or some other definition. Once you identify a neighborhood or home you are interested in, we will make sure to look at the fine print together.

At the end of this section, you’ll see the current listings in each of these subdivisions, gathered all in one place.

Highland Meadows
Highland Meadows is a lovely subdivision located in the heart of Summit County, between Frisco and Breckenridge, and Keystone and Dillon are just a quick drive over scenic Swan Mountain Road. These peaceful, sunny homesites (30 in all) boast tremendous views, some of Mt. Baldy and Mt. Guyot and others of Lake Dillon. According to the covenants in Highland Meadows, any lease must be four months or longer, with no more than 2 leases in a single year.

Juniata
Juniata is home to some of the most beautiful custom homes in Breckenridge, enjoying some of the most impressive views of the Ten Mile Range and Breckenridge Ski Resort. Main Street Breck is just 3.5 miles down the hill by car, and owners enjoy easy access to the town shuttle system as well as a wealth of hiking, biking, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing trails. Juniata features 21 properties on more than 80 acres with lots ranging from 1.2 acres to 8.2 acres. Peace and quiet, and no short term rentals per the HOA.

Juniata Vacant Land for Sale

The Ranch at Breckenridge
One of Breck’s best kept secrets, in my opinion. The Ranch at Breckenridge is a prestigious gated community offering larger homesites (many are 5+ acres) close to town – up the hill from Juniata – with fantastic views. Owners here enjoy seclusion, privacy and convenience. The covenants here are less restrictive when it comes to short term rentals. Owners can rent for a length of time equal to or greater than 30 days (so seasonal rentals are allowed, but not weekly rentals.)

Willow Creek Highlands
At the top of the Willowbrook neighborhood in Silverthorne, Willow Creek Highlands is close to everything the north side of the county has to offer, yet it feels remarkably secluded. Many of the homes and homesites here offer tremendous views, and the Eagle’s Nest Wildernest area and trailhead are nearby.

Lake Dillon lies just across Highway 9 from Highland Meadows.

Development here began in 2000, so each of the homes are newer, and construction continues here today. Architectural design standards call for the reflection of the area’s mining and ranching history, with exterior materials consisting of wood, stone, logs, and heavy timbers. Lot sizes range from .68 acres to 3.5 acres, with the majority of homesites between one and two acres.

Roads in Highland Meadows are paved and utilities are buried. Highland Meadows is served by a special water district, the Alpensee Water District. (Residents here say the water tastes amazing.)

That means this area stays quiet even during the holidays and the month of March, when the rest of Breckenridge can feel a bit crowded.

Breckenridge Historic District | Homes for Sale

As you can imagine, with Breckenridge’s rich mining history, the Breckenridge Historic District is one of the largest in Colorado.

Homes for Sale in Breckenridge's Historic DistrictThe Breckenridge Historic District encompasses a large portion of downtown Breckenridge and is a highly desirable area for Breckenridge buyers and renters (both short- and long-term). Town planners regulate the architectural modifications, as well as the density of the area, and the result is a downtown core and historic district that maintains a classic, old world charm.

While some of the historic Victorian homes you see in today’s historic district were built in the late 19th century; others are remodels or additions to historic structures, and others are new construction – projects that successfully mimic the look and feel of the old homes while also making room for all the modern amenities.

Scroll down to see all of today’s Homes for Sale in the Breckenridge downtown/historic district area.

The Breckenridge Historic District

The Breckenridge downtown area and historic district is a popular tourist destination year round. History buffs enjoy a variety of museums, exhibits, attractions, and walking tours (read more on our Breckenridge Heritage Alliance website: BreckHeritage.com.) And there’s always something to do, year-round. Throughout the town, Breckenridge has 97 restaurants and bars (79 with bar/18 without bar – ask me for recommendations), 219 shops and boutiques, 249 historic district structures, and 18 museums and art galleries.

The downtown area is also home to the the Breck Create Arts District, which hosts artists-in residence, as well as workshops and classes. You can also take in a concert at the Riverwalk Center performing arts venue, a play at the Backstage Theatre, or a movie at the Speakeasy – all within the town of Breckenridge. (Read my Breckenridge Community Guide for more information.)

With the town of Breckenridge’s unique configuration in relation to the ski mountain, many of the ski in, ski out properties are also within walking distance to the town core and the Breckenridge historic district.

We also have the Breck Connect gondola, which connects Main Street Breckenridge with the Peak 8 base area, so many Breckenridge properties enjoy close proximity to the fun and festivities of the downtown area. (See current Ski in, Ski Out Homes in Breckenridge or Walk to the Slopes homes in Breckenridge.)
