About the owner: We are American diplomats; we are currently serving America's critical interests in two different countries :(, Lizzie in Iraq and Charlie in Kenya. We enjoy difficult places because it makes a difference, we think.
Our son loves America, and having visited 25 different countries and living in 6 countries on three continents, decided to attend the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida. He loves boarding school (we hate it, but...) He's a baseball star, and next year we all hope he plays at the college level. He's dashingly handsome, huh?
We have lived and visited all around the world, and decided that Crested Butte would be home: it is absolutely beautiful, and has some of the most interesting, friendly, and least self-possessed people we have ever met.
Wild Iris is our home sweet home...until we quit this crazy Foreign Service life we'll share it with you.
Come check out Crested butte..you'll love it!
Why the Owner Chose Crested Butte: Beautiful country...interesting people....friendly people.....a town you can still walk in and chat with everyone you see.
The Unique Benefits at this House: You can leave your car behind and walk everywhere...now that's freedom, the perfect escape! It's a 5 minute walk to everywhere. We take our son up to the top of the mountains in summer and have a picnic, and then let him mountain bike home....all downhill. The house has lots of character, as do all the people.
