Convenient Neighborhood One Step Up From Downtown Breckenridge
Wellington Road gradually climbs up from Main Street Breckenridge through the historic district to Father Dyer church which is the foot of the Weisshorn neighborhood. The Weisshorn neighborhood is only a few hundred yards from Briar Rose Lane where the Weisshorn homes for sale starts and the character of neighborhood is quickly established. Old trees surround homes built on big lots and homes are set back from the roads.
The neighborhood has feelings of seclusion and privacy, although more than a hundred homes are built on this close-to-town hillside that extends north and south for a long block or two on either side of Wellington.

The History of the Weisshorn Subdivision
This hillside where the Weisshorn subdivision is located remained forested through the mining era and this quality was preserved when home building began as early as 1961. A dozen homes were built as the ski resort was getting started, but within the decade there were more than 60 homes in Weisshorn. Another 40 were added in the 1970s and just a handful in every decade since. Today, less than 3 percent of the lots are undeveloped.
The neighborhood is bisected by Wellington Road which gradually ascends after the first big hill for another mile until it joins French Creek Road. This is a historic east-west artery to the gulch’s gold fields. Most homes in Weisshorn are located on loop roads off either side and there is little drive-through traffic.
Recreation Near Weisshorn Homes
The free town shuttle serves Weisshorn homes via Wellington Road and connects to the ski resort and gondola as well as Main Street Breckenridge. Walking to town isn’t far and there are several neighborhood paths.
The Breckenridge Equestrian Center is located on the eastern edge of the neighborhood and just beyond it are backcountry trails and open space. French Creek Road, which intersects with several spur trails, eventually climbs the shoulder between Mount Guyot and Baldy.
