After everything that happened in 2020, many consumers are moving mother nature and healthy lifestyles to the top of their priorities list. In fact, according to a National Association of REALTORS® survey, 59% of REALTORS® found that their clients had a particular interest in sustainable home features. Another study from Wakefield Research found that 56% of homebuyers prefer larger outdoor living spaces and access to nature than other curb appeal elements. This heightened awareness of our own wellbeing and the health of our environment has influenced the way that people shop for homes.
LIV Sotheby’s International Realty (LIV SIR) represents some of the most incredible homes in Colorado that can meet the consumers’ need for “green.”
Sustainability is in style. One of Breckenridge’s most luxurious mountain estates, 66 Green Jay Lane, listed by LIV SIR broker Aniela Wasmanski for $11,500,000, is partially powered by the sun. The second you see this 11,756-square-foot, five-bedroom home, your eyes will light up. No expense was spared when designing this over-the-top home from the globally sourced materials and custom chandeliers, to the high-altitude amenities such as the indoor swimming pool and the hot tub. What’s more, this impressive estate comes complete with photovoltaic solar panels to reduce its carbon footprint. The sun also pours through a massive wall of south-facing windows to warm the home naturally. It’s smart design elements such as these that make this home equally as environmentally conscious as it is chic.
Gardening has always been a popular hobby that has some eco-friendly and delicious benefits. If you’re one of those green-thumbed homebuyers, 3444 County Road 5, near Winter Park, might be the home for you. This well-equipped working ranch, listed by LIV SIR brokers, Michelle Campbell and Ron Martinez, for $9,900,000, is the ideal setting to plant your roots in Colorado. This four-bedroom, four-bathroom home is set on more than 193 acres and also enjoys multiple outbuildings including a green house, two large barns, three chicken coops, a stable and riding yard, a heated milking barn, and more. Here you can grow your own organic produce, house horses, and tend to other animals. As if this ranch wasn’t impressive enough, the property and its buildings are fully supported by solar panels, for an extra boost of eco-friendly energy.
In Golden, 22101 Bear Tooth Drive, listed by LIV SIR broker, Jonathan Danton, for $5,500,000, is your dream home surrounded by rolling green hills.
