History Of Blue River Estates

Blue River Estates was created when the father of long-time Breckenridge resident Robin Theobald's father bought 1,200 acres of land in 1960 from the city of Colorado Springs. The elder Theobald, Bob, thought he'd sell the land to people wanting fishing cabins on Pennsylvania Creek or along the banks of the Blue River near where this creek empties into it.

Because their settings are pretty idyllic these little estates of 1/4 to several acres are family friendly and great vacation homes.  Because the Breckenridge ski resort is just a mile or so down the road, they are some of the most charming places to spend a winter vacation in all of Colorado.

And for the reason that many of the older homes in this neighborhood were set up as summer homes, they are set up to survive their owner's absences.  They are good candidates for off-grid living. Electricity has always been available but only recently did natural gas come to the neighborhood. Septic systems and on-site wells are the norm.

Blue River valley living with Baldy Mountain views

Sun is a Colorado native most every day of the year. Within this part of Breckenridge, forests are dense and the many trees dapple that sun like the hides of the horses of the Utes who used to summer in the valley. Choices of sun orientation and proximity to water in this area can meet many tastes, but are definitely factors to consider when looking at homes for sale in Blue River Estates.

The sun will rise later as the ground rises steeply to the east, but homes along the Blue River enjoy long afternoon sun and great views of it setting over and behind the Tenmile Range.

Recreation Around Blue River

Wilderness is adjoining national forest, and it's likely you can find a trail through the neighborhood to it.  Running just inside the public lands on the eastern edge of Wilderness, a trail that runs the length of the subdivision and eventually runs into Pennsylvania Creek. This trail along the creek will lead hikers, bikers and cross country skiers to pretty meadows, and evenually to a ridge between Pennsylvania and Indiana Creek and on toward Baldy Mountain until it intersects with Boreas Pass Road. Miles of trails connect in the area - some better than others for these various uses - but homeowners in Blue River Estates can get so familiar with the area they may never get in a car again to start a hike.

Fishing on the Blue is some of the best in the state, and all residents of Blue River have access and use rights on Goose Pasture Tarn, on the north side of this neighborhood.
