                              Year Purchased: 1970

                              About the owner: Harold Deist is a professional artist who paints in oil with traditional landscapes ranging from the southwest adobe architecture to the surrounding desert and mountains. Other subjects are water and boats, remarkable sunsets, and the animals of the area. He is represented in Denver, CO at Abend Gallery. His paintings reside in countries all over the world. His paintings were chosen by the Iceland Ambassador's residence to show the landscape of the southwest. Judy is a retired small animal veterinarian and long time photographer that also prefers outdoor subjects. Owners are active outdoor enthusiasts enjoying bicycling, skiing, and horses.

                              Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                              This was purchased in Summit County for a perfect mountain house next to great fishing in the Dillon Reservoir and the Blue River. Harold's father was a great fly fisherman and loved the outdoors. The house was just was refurbished. We recently took over managing the house since both are now gone, and are converting it to a vacation rental so the family will also be able to use it when not rented, for all outdoor activities such as skiing and bicycling as well as horseback riding.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:

A king size select comfort bed is in the master bedroom as well as a large flat screen TV. The living room as a larger TV with HDTV sports stations. The laundry in also well stocked.
