Frisco Convenience: In Town Neighborhoods
Frisco has several small neighborhoods tucked in corners of it's historic street grid. These and the graph-paper drawn streets on the north and south side of Main Street are Frisco's in-town subdivisions, and together they create a town that offers walkability, is bike friendly and has a border with the national forest.
Main Street developed in the 1880s south of the train tracks - now gone - which had been established near the south bank of Tenmile Creek. That creek runs essentially west to northeast across Frisco and the town's other historically-named streets run parallel with it - one north of Main, and a couple south of it. The perpendicular grid goes from 1st to 7th Avenue - west to east. Homes for sale on the grid will be found by searching the town of Frisco sub, but there are many more subdivisions that exist within Frisco proper.
On Main Street, the second floor of many of Frisco's newer buildings may very well contain condos or townhomes. This are usually called by the building name. For example: Scattered Pines Condo, Marina Park Condo, Castlewood, Gateway, Frisco Trading Co. Condo, Frisco Marketplace Condos, Frisco Lodge & Condo, Olde Main Street Condo, Frisco Main Street Commons.
Only a few log cabins remain in Frisco, and some of those were relocated from the old town of Dillon, just before the dam was filled. Likewise, there are just a few dozen vacation-home style homes from the early 20th Century, and just a very few A-frames. After the development of ski resorts in the county, Frisco's central location made it a great spot for full-time locals who worked in the ski business to live. In the 60s, 70s and 80s suburban ranch style homes were built, mostly custom built, in the intown subdivision. From the mid 1970 through 2000, more full-time residents lived in Frisco than Breckenridge.
During this time, a few condos or 79s-style multi-family buildings were build and there is sometimes a jarring mix of condos or townhomes next to an historic cabin. Infill is currently blurring the contrast. Starting in the 1990, across the county, cluster homes were the trend and Frisco has it clumps of two-story homes with street-facing garage and driveway.
