DEVELOPMENT TEAM PLANS UNPRECEDENTED PROJECT FOR BRECKENRIDGE’S SHOCK HILL
Info: Shock Hill Lodge and Spa
BRECKENRIDGE, Colorado – July 7 – Collectors of exquisite real estate around the world take note. One of the most unique mountain developments to ever enter the marketplace is about to debut in Breckenridge, Colo. The Shock Hill Lodge & Spa is bound to become one of the wonders of the real estate world, thanks to an unmatched location, a design dream-team and a true commitment to sustainability.
Located, quite literally, at the Shock Hill Midway Station of the new BreckConnect™ Gondola, The Shock Hill Lodge & Spa sits like an island in the midst of tranquil Cucumber Gulch – a protected wetlands habitat separating the Town of Breckenridge from Breckenridge Ski Resort’s Peaks 7 and 8. The natural topography of the area lends itself to stunning, unobstructed 360-degree views of Breckenridge Ski Resort, the Ten Mile Range, Mt. Baldy and the White River National Forest. The location is truly unduplicated – there is nothing remotely like it anywhere on earth.
The development itself, termed “Rustic Zen” by the design team, incorporates the tradition of National Park Architecture with a sleek international flair. Think massive logs with attached root structure and rough timbers coupled with cool, contemporary steel; comfort collaborating with clean design. Think, too, in terms of privacy – both in individual and public spaces. The team accomplishes this Herculean task using a variety of elevations thanks to a varied topography, abundant gifts from Mother Nature, and precisely-placed nooks and crannies throughout the property.
Public and private spaces take on additional meaning considering the BreckConnect™ Gondola’s pathway between the two buildings encompassing The Shock Hill Lodge & Spa. The team has also made the creation of this corridor a design priority, and initial sketches lend a European train station-aura, incorporating both structural beauty and the natural environment.
The location and organic yet current design translate to conscious choices for both the interior and surrounding environments, as well. A dedicated effort to consider “green development” for internal design elements includes long-term energy savings tactics, use of reclaimed and sustainably-grown cabinetry and low VOC paint, as well as a “dark sky” policy incorporating down-lighting both inside and out. Additionally, the team is adamant about creating a more sustainable wetlands and forest habitat surrounding this development.
The complete picture includes peace, tranquility and privacy – with access. Residents are sure to become well-studied in the descriptions of critters paying a visit to this impressive structure, seemingly grown by nature itself. And, a quick ride to the ski resort, or to downtown Breckenridge, via the gondola makes the use of a car obsolete. What they won’t encounter: traffic noise, buses loading and unloading, après ski crowds, an echo from the band playing at the bar next door.
The luxury residences of The Shock Hill Lodge & Spa offer a truly unique mountain property ownership opportunity featuring private lodge amenities, as well as shared conveniences with a second spectacular development soon to follow, called The Shores at the Highlands and located along the banks of the Blue River.
Architectural plans and development schedules are currently in the works. Sales information is now available and reservations will be accepted beginning July 24 for the first phase with pre-construction pricing.
