Castle on the Blue is a one-of-a-kind European inspired estate, nestled quietly on the Blue River and just minutes from downtown Breckenridge. Capturing a sense of place with amazing architectural finishes, 165 River Park Drive takes you on an enchanting journey. Listed by LIV Sotheby’s International Realty brokers Jack Wolfe and Aniela Wasmanski, Castle on the Blue is a timeless luxury, priced at $10,000,000.
“There are fascinating details throughout this home that will capture the attention of anyone walking through. The stone flooring, inlaid mesquite wood accents, or rare hardwood floors imported from Argentina – everyone is sure to be allured with the beauty of Castle on the Blue,” said Wolfe.
Rarely does a Breckenridge home capture the essence of place as this estate does, including unparalleled luxury finishes, mountain vista views, and an enchanting river as the backdrop. Castle on the Blue was completed in 2009, blending the elegance of Europe with the warmth of the West.
The exterior of the home immediately draws you in with the beautiful large river rock and locally hand-hewn squared timber logs and beams. Lush gardens fill the grounds, along with stone paths, sculptures, and benches – all leading you to the river with secluded spaces to absorb the unimaginable natural beauty.
Walking towards the ultimate entrance, you will experience detailed beauty with the dramatic eight-foot solid, hand-carved wooden doors and the hundreds of subtle LED lights embedded in the stone of every archway. High ceilings, a stone interior, wood beams, detailed iron work, and two fireplaces present a magnificent setting as soon as you set foot inside the home. With a view of the river, this space also serves as an elegant dining area with plenty of room for a large family or guests for an exclusive dinner party.
Among the main floor is a chef’s dream, the beautifully crafted gourmet kitchen. A tremendous island and separate wet bar, along with two sparkling imported copper sinks, capture your attention. Handcrafted in France, the La Cornue black and brass range and double ovens grant limitless baking features. An additional Viking oven complements the amazing La Cornue. The design of this stunning kitchen artfully disguises storage spaces. As an added bonus, you can easily enjoy a cup of coffee, latte, espresso, cappuccino or macchiato with the plumbed Miele coffee machine.
In all, the estate has five en-suite bedrooms and two additional full bathrooms. All of the bedrooms open to a serene private deck that allows you to savor the sounds of the river or the views of the beautiful mountains. The en-suite bathrooms provide ultimate comfort with antique vanities, copper tubs, onyx showers, and a hand-cut medallion featuring exotic stones. Appreciate the convenience of smart-home technology with adjustments for music, light, audio and video intercom and temperature control.
Take the glass elevator to the highest point on the fourth floor, opening to a private hot tub with an outdoor stone fireplace, one of three copper ceilings, a marvelous view and the melody of the river below.
An entertainer’s dream, the estate features an eloquent theatre room, designed to rival a boutique opera house in Paris. Enjoy the perfect Colorado weather from the largest of the home’s many outdoor decks while sitting around the corner fire pit or while prepping a meal at the gourmet barbeque kitchen.
This is a legacy home that repeatedly creates a seamless connection between extravagant indoor and stunning outdoor living spaces. Come home to this meticulous estate. Come home to your “Castle on the Blue.”
