In-Town Homes On Large Lots, Steps Up From Downtown Breckenridge
Gold Flake III is the newest subdivision of the neighborhood, which rests on the first hill east of the historic district. Like its predecessors, the Gold Flake III homes for sale are all custom-built on large lots very close to, but not in downtown. The third filing is primarily located on a cul-de-sac just east of Pine, and includes three parcels of open space and is both recorded as Gold Flake 3 and 3a.
From any home for sale in Gold Flake III the views west to the Tenmile Range are often panoramic. Many of the homes have west-facing decks because the subdivision gets long, afternoon sun.
Summer or winter, the walk down to town from Gold Flake III is, at most, a block farther than the other Gold Flake Streets, and it is easy via neighborhood trails - only about 15 minutes - although a little more strenuous going home. Directly to the north, is another single-family neighborhood, the Weisshorn, and both neighborhoods get very little drive through traffic.

Gold Flake 3 Subdivision History
The first claims to this land were for mining gold, and thus the name of the subdivision. The third filing was once part of the Bonanza claim. Ski home construction began in the 1980s when five lots were developed between Lincoln and Washington streets on the first terrace above the historic residential streets.
Gold Flake II was developed in the ’90s and spread the subdivision to the boundary with Carter Park, a town park with playgrounds, sledding hill and tennis courts. Peppered between these phases are extensions of the historic in-town subdivision called Yingling & Mickels Addition, but to any local this would be thought of as Gold Flake, as well.
After 2000, Gold Flake III was platted, and the neighborhood was extended to the east to the edge of Breckenridge Heights, which is still unincorporated Summit County.
Through the Breckenridge Open Space and Trails Commission, developers deeded land and easements that allowed the town to create forested walking paths through the neighborhood that lead from town, over open space to the national forest.
Set on a steep hill, uphill from downtown Breckenridge affords this neighborhood great views of the Breckenridge Ski Area, although many lots are heavily treed so the view may be filtered. The neighborhood is above and away from the bustle of town, but is a quick, if steep walk away.
