High and Sunny Neighborhood on the climb up Hoosier Pass

Just south of the town limits of Blue River, where the switchbacks have started on the well paved and traveled road over Hoosier Pass to Fairplay and Park County Colorado, sits a small neighborhood on well-graded roads that climb with the surrounding hills. The homesites that spin off left and right of the few streets in this subdivision vary but are generally large, and sunny. It's high attitude, here in Alpine Breck and the trees are more sparse, the high peaks are closer, and the tourists are far away - a 15-minute drive - in central Breckenridge. Alpine Breckenridge is one of the southernmost of the developed private land subdivisions in unincorporated Summit County, Colorado. 

The lots in Alpine Breckenridge are at least ½ acre and face the dramatic Tenmile Range and its highest peak, Quandary Mountain, the county's only 14er.  The altitude and relative remoteness of Alpine Breck means there are still a few undeveloped lots, and these are desirable building sites because of price, being in no legal entity but the county and good soils for septic and well systems that are the only water and sewer options in this neighborhood.
