Summit County > Blue River > The Crown
Sun shines on The Crown -
Glittering on a subtle hill, The Crown, is the first neighborhood you'll come to when driving south from the center of Breckenridge into the incorporated town of Blue River. on the west side of Highway 9. There is only one (unincorporated Summit County) subdivision between the town boundaries and the Crown, so its a quick 10 minutes by bike, and less that 5 by car to the Post Office, for example. And as any local knows, any home for sale in the Crown, really, everything between Farmers Korner and the base of Hoosier Pass is thought of as Breckenridge. The Crown is a neighborhood for those who want to be pedaling distance to the center of town.
The exact crown isn't apparent in the landscape like a 'Camel Rock' but many of the homesites benefit from sitting on this gently rounded hill on the west side of the Blue River, and get more than their share of sunshine in the spruce, fir and pine forests. Great views of Baldy Mountain and Mount Helen are common in many of the single-family homes in the Crown. It's a neighborhood that feels a little rural: well-graded but unpaved roads, lots that are usually at least 1/2 acres, privacy, but neighbors, too.
