Summit County > Blue River > 39 Degrees North

Large Homesites at 39.39 Degrees North of the Equator

A Neighborhood on the Southside of Breck, and Blue River

And on located on the southside of downtown Breckenridge, this neighborhood is also south of the town limits of Blue River. A small subdivision, Thirty-Nine Degrees North, is unincorporated by any town, but governed by Summit County, Colorado. 

The lots in 39° North are at least ½ acre and are on gently rolling hills on the flanks of Red Mountain. On the east side of the Blue River valley, any home for sale in 39° North will face the dramatic Tenmile Range and its highest peak, Quandary Mountain, the county's only 14er.  Privacy, a little feel of the rural, easy access to national forest lands, and a 10-minute drive to the cosmopolitan ski town of Breckenridge makes a good case for purchasing homes for sale in 39 Degrees North. The few remaining vacant lots will offer the building advantages of being in no legal entity but the county, and are excellent candidates for the septic and well systems that are the only water and sewer options in this neighborhood.
