Placer Ridge Townhomes
Condos on Ridge Street with the look and feel of townhomes.
Placer Ridge Townhomes are new construction on the site of the former Breckenridge Mountain Lodge, which was itself a ski-era modification of what was before that a bowling alley, a great social and aesthetic improvement from the mining and train industries that were on this site, on the south side of downtown Breckenridge. Shops and restaurants are across the street from these independent little homes. They are townhomes with no land - thus the name condo in the official subdivision name.
Located on Ridge Street, Placer Ridge offers the quiet of being off Main, which is just a short block to the west. The shops and restaurants are an easy walk, and so is the free town to ski area shuttle that runs along French Street, one block east of Ridge. Carter Park, a dog friendly park, with tennis courts and a sledding hill is another block east.

History of Breckenridge Development on the Southside
The historical south end of Breckenridge was defined when the Denver Rio Grande Railway came across Boreas Pass and into town on a similar path to the road called Boreas Pass Road today, and the trains needed areas to store. load and unload freight, and other products that would serve the mining industry. By the turn of the 19th Century to the 20th, this area was turned into a park, and new streets plated, but development didn't fill in the area. In the 1960s when skiing started a ski-style lodge called Breckenridge Mountain Lodge was build on this side of town In this century, that lodge has been demolished and replaced with something similar to the Placer Ridge Townhomes - mining-era looks and row-house 2.0 - but instead of condos with individual owners it is a low-height hotel called the Residences at Marriott.
Townhome and Condo Style
Mining-boom era is the theme of these small homes with gables and a board&batten exterior. Built in a row, a home for sale in Placer Ridge will be unlike a city row house. They look independent with varying frontages. Front porches, big windows segmented to look Victorian, this new construction fits in with the historic, in-town homes nearby. Inside they are cosy and new with open floor plans, three levels with parking for guests out front and underground spaces for the homeowners.
The layout inside is similar to a suburban split-level home, and that’s surprising considering they have an outside that appears narrow and tall. The underground parking is accessed from the outside via a driveway to the south and is not included in the three level layout.
