Home Tour with Paula Bianchi, Suncadia Managing Broker

If finding the perfect Suncadia property is a dream come true, then finding the right person to make that happen is equally important. At Suncadia, we have a team of brokers who are as passionate about the resort and community they work at as they are about helping families find their dream home. This week, we want to introduce you to Paula Bianchi.


A Seattle native, Paula has been with Suncadia since the beginning and has sold hundreds of homes over the years. Almost two decades ago, she and her husband built their own home in the Tumble Creek neighborhood, where they live full-time.

“What’s great about this neighborhood is that it’s close to everything Suncadia offers, but it’s also a private gated community that the public can’t drive through,” says Paula. She also raves about a house that’s recently come on the market at 210 Blue Flame Lane. “There’s nothing quite like it in Tumble Creek… or in all of Suncadia,” she says. Built on just under an acre of land, the contemporary mountain home features 4,931 square feet of living space, with 6 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms.

Featuring extraordinary craftsmanship and attention to detail, the house boasts hardwood floors, exposed wood beams throughout, plush carpeting in bedrooms, and top-of-the-line appliances in a kitchen that would please any home chef worth his or her salt. “Sun pours in to every room of the house. It’s incredibly light-filled and airy,” says Paula. “One of the things I love about this house is the impressive amount of built-in storage in every room.” From the mud room to store away all your hiking, biking and other outdoorsy gear to the massive entertainment room, which could be a kid hangout or movie room, there’s something for everyone in this home. Set over the garage, there’s even a guest apartment that offers 2 bedrooms, kitchenette and living room. “A family with little kids, with teens and grandparents could live in this home,” says Paula. “Or maybe even 2 close families. There’s just so much room and so much flexibility to make it whatever you want.”

As impressive as the interiors of this house are, what will take your breath away is the amount of outdoor space available for year-round entertaining. “The backyard is like a private oasis,” says Paula. “It has a full covered kitchen with a bar, and space for an eating area and cozy lounge right next to the fireplace.” A few steps away from the patio is a hot tub that looks out to nothing but trees and the mountains beyond.

Because the house is set at the end of a cul-de-sac with not another neighbor or house in sight, it really feels incredibly private. “The house is surrounded by tall trees, like it’s own little forest. If you want a home to retreat to and feel like you’re in the middle of nowhere, this is it,” says Paula.
