Tenderfoot House represent the highest level of green building design and construction in the high-country of the Rocky Mountains - Summit County, Colorado. Located in the historic town of Breckenridge, these ski-in / ski-out homes are ideal for local living, a family get-away or an incredible investment property.
The Residences at Tenderfoot House consist of two luxury, ski-in/ski-out, 4 bedroom/3 bathroom, single-family residences on the slopes of Breckenridge Ski Resort. The tried-and-true real estate maxim “Location. Location. Location.” says it all regarding the significance of the surroundings of this development. Not only is this setting ideal for year-round recreation, and situated in the idyllic ski-town of Breckenridge, but the stunning, ‘million-dollar views’ of the entire Breckenridge Ski Resort are dazzling from behind the 20 feet of high-tech glass and spacious decks on the front elevations of the residences.
These custom homes have been meticulously designed both architecturally, by aMa Architecture, as well as through interior design consulting form world-renowned Atlas Galleries of Chicago, to take advantage of all that this setting offers, while utilizing the best practices of building science to ensure incredible efficiency, highly-elevated level of comfort, superior durability, and resonant mountain aesthetics.
Regarding some of the green elements of this project, the exterior of the Tenderfoot House is clad in locally reclaimed pine and locally sourced stone. Interior finishes include high-efficiency HVAC with heat recovery ventilators (HRVs), high-efficiency hot water systems, water-sense™ fixtures and dual-flush toilets, stainless-steel Energy Star appliances, energy-efficient Energy Star lighting with occupancy sensors throughout, multiple enclosed, power-vented stone fireplaces, highly-durable FSC (Forestry Stewardship Council) certified wood-framing, carbonized bamboo flooring, high-efficiency low-e windows, exceptionally insulated building envelope, and no-VOC paints and sealants throughout – and those are just the highlights. This all boils down to a super-efficient, extraordinarily comfortable and healthy, remarkably green project.
The open plan on the main-level includes kitchen, dining and living space featuring a spacious gourmet kitchen with ample granite counter-top space, custom glass-tile back-splash, stainless steel floating range-hood and appliances and European cabinets. The living room features a stone wall fireplace and abundant glass doors and windows opening up to extensive views of the slopes of Breckenridge. Additionally, enjoy the live/work flex room which offers endless possibilities for an office, study, library, media-room or 4th bedroom.
The 3rd-floor includes master-suites with 12 foot windows and glass doors, dual walk-in closets, 5-piece spa bathrooms, stone wall fireplaces and great decks opening out to the slopes all serving as a retreat from the elements while at the same time bringing inside the astounding beauty of this outdoor environment. Down the hall from the master-suites one will find the high-efficiency laundry room, and another spacious bedroom, nursery or office.
The ground-floor features a spacious garage with a built-in recycling center and plenty of storage, mechanical room and owner’s lock-off suite which comprises another full bedroom and full bath.
