Sugar Estate at Breckenridge is a luxury cabin that’s as sweet as Ferrara Candy, the Chicago-based maker of the Atomic Fireball, Brach’s, Jujyfruits, Lemonheads, Now and Laters, and Trolli gummy candies.
The Ferrara family no longer owns Ferrara candy, but descendant Alana Ferrara bought the 1.5-acre Colorado property in 2017, according to public records, and went about designing a no-expense-spared candy-themed five-bedroom, five-bathroom luxury cabin.
The property, which has been rentable on Airbnb starting at $1,054 a night since December 19, is a sugar wonderland. The kitchen has custom-built tilt-out candy dispensers that are filled with Ferrara candy. The Sugar Estate logo, featuring peppermints and rock candy, will soon be etched in a mirror above an in-home bar. And local artist Andy Thomas has painted Lemonheads all over the house as part of a game for kids to find all 20 hidden candies. To top off the experience, kids will love the high-end arcade in the basement.
But it’s not just a kid’s wonderland. The house offers beer taps with local Breckenridge beer.
“The idea is craft beer in this county has become a big thing… There are several places in the county that brew their own stuff, and people visit to go to breweries and distilleries,” said Parker.
Outdoors, guests can grill, sit by the stone outdoor fireplace, or walk on the Flume Trail, which has an entrance in the estate’s backyard. A heated pathway leads to an extra-deep $60,000 hot tub, where up to 14 people can soak in mountain views.
“Hot tubs are cool but this is over the top, you know?” said Summit Luxury Estates luxury home manager Adam Parker, who directed the Sugar Estate’s construction from start to finish, working with Allen-Guerra Architecture and Decker Custom Homes.
The property includes panoramic mountain views and high-end construction, including $46,000 worth of quartz and Sonos Surround Sound throughout the home. And for guests with sensitivity to high altitudes, the master bedroom is oxygenated — a rare amenity that makes a mountain vacation accessible to the whole family.
