Lake City townhome description

Location, Location, Location! Many people feel this property is similar to being on a houseboat. The spacious deck is directly over the water of Lake San Cristobal. You can hear the lapping of waves as you read or eat on the lovely front deck. The majestic mountains surrounding the lake are green in summer, aspen covered in fall, and snow covered in winter.

The area is well know for its five fourteen thousand foot mountain peaks. Hiking on the many surrounding trails will follow streams, waterfalls, and valleys filled with wildflowers. There is also the wonderful Alpine Loop that takes jeeps and four-wheelers across the continental divide to the high country land of mountain Shepard's and tundra. Silverton and ghost towns such as Animas Forks are also along this route.

Of course fishermen think this is paradise. The lake and all the surrounding streams provide wonderful fishing. In September Lake City has a Wine and Music Festival. In winter there is abundant snowshoeing, cross country skiing, snowmobiling, and ice climbing. The beauty and serenity of the forests at this time offer experiences to be remembered. This is the time of year that captures the quiet of the season. Relaxing with a book by the fire is also a welcome treat. This home provides a respite from the usual business of the world.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2005

          About the owner: My husband and I live in Colorado Springs ,Co. We live in the foothills with views of the city and the mountains. So why did we buy property in the mountains when we already live in the mountains? Because of the lake! Not many spots in CO. where you can have MOUNTAINS AND LAKE! JUST TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE!

          Why the Owner Chose Lake City:
          Again , we bought it because our deck is literally right over the water. The serenity of water and mountains is a powerful combination. We were also attracted to a REAL western small town. It is NOT a hectic commercial .mountain town. You can still experience a by gone era here . Something that's fun to share with our grandchildren.

          The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
          This is an end property . That says a lot! It is quiet and is your own! i do interior design work ,so it was a natural for me to see the possibilities of this unique property and I ran with it! I have had a wonderful time decorating my mountain home. It is fun western - log beds, antler light fixtures, deer wallpaper, western real art but not cutesy. It makes me feel good to be in joyful surroundings, and paying attention to detail is my thing.
