          Manager info

          Year Purchased: 2009

          About: My wife and I moved to Colorado in 1977 and quickly became addicted to the outdoors. Through my career I avoided opportunities that would take us away from Colorado. I realized early on that I wanted to pursue the quality of life Colorado offered.

          Why South Fork:
          We looked all over the state for more than 5 years for a property that met our criteria. It had to have outdoor activities year around and be on a river big enough to float. It also needed to have a little land for some elbow room.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Three acres provides more privacy and seclusion than being in town. It isn't remote but there are fewer people around. Getting to town takes less than 10 minutes. The low density housing is also more animal friendly with a lot less traffic.
