                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About the owner: Linda and Bernie are partners both in marriage and in business. For 33 years they owned a retail /mail order/ direct marketing business with imports from Europe. Now in semi- retirement, they continue to work together on various creative projects. Their latest venture is a coffee table photo book titled Colorado’s South Park that was published in 2010. For over three years they traveled the area, hiked the meadows and mountains, photographed and sketched in and made South Park their home. Bernie’s passion is photography and creative design; Linda’s is painting and drawing. They have been featured in galleries in Georgia and Colorado. Besides their artistic talents, they enjoy skiing, hiking and traveling. Since 1995 they have hosted and guided tours to Europe with VIP-Alpine Tours since 1993. Bernie, a native of Austria knows the language and customs as well as many quaint places that most tour companies miss. Linda also speaks German and has traveled to Europe at least 40 times. The Nagy's enjoy RVing and visit frequently their daughter, son-in-law, and granddaughter in Georgia. They have a son also in New Zealand who they visit occasionaly. Bernie is an award winning photographer and publisher of the international award winning travel essay coffee table books 'South Park' High Country Paradise and 'South Park' Colorado, Nature's Paradise.

                      Why the Owner Chose Fairplay:
                      We have lived and owned property in Colorado on and off since 1985 when we made our first family ski vacation. When we retired from our business, we knew we wanted to spend more time in the high country. The property in South Park is a perfect place for us. Here we live in quiet comfort and enjoy the magnificent vistas and pure clean air at 10,385 ft. Our place is close to civilization and conveniences and yet also close to remote areas that rival any place for sheer beauty and enjoying nature.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      Our house and rental apartment is on a wooded 1-acre plot with aspens and evergreens. There are hiking trails that begin literally from our back door! The views to the west are constantly changing and never cease to amaze us. Spectacular sunsets frequently burst across the sky. We love the area of South Park so much that we wrote a book about it! It's called Colorado's South Park, High Country Paradise (Available through Amazon or Paypal).
