                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1983

                      About the owner: Seniors, retired. Husband was a building contractor, designer, architectural draftsman, wife was a cashier in banking, retail stores & homemaker. We have raised 6 children, (1 girl, & 5 boys). We have 7 grandchildren, & 5 great grandchildren. We have been involved in all types of activities such as Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, PTA, Little League Baseball, Pop Warner Football, Booster Clubs, & Foreign Exchange activities, as well as church & choir member for 50 years. Locally, Kirkwood Planning Director for12 years, Kirkwood Public Utilities Board of Directors for14 years, Blind School instructor for 12 years, Ambassadors for 2 years, very community oriented people. We love skiing, hiking, fishing, back packing, & swimming . In the summer of 1981, our entire family started to build our Kirkwood home which was our dream home and a new family project. We completed it in the Fall of 1983.

                      Why the Owner Chose Kirkwood:
                      We started skiing Kirkwood, by chance, in the Christmas/New Year’s period of 1971. Heavenly Valley was our destination, but there was too much rock exposure. We decided to try Kirkwood which advertised 2 ft of new snow and 4 open chair lifts (a new ski resort). Although my parents home was at So Lake Tahoe, we decided to drive 30 miles each day for the next 4 days to enjoy the new ski runs @ Kirkwood and its fabulous snow. Traveling to and from So Lake Tahoe, thru the Sierra’s mountain peaks, we were so impressed by the similarity to the Rocky Mountain terrain. Soon after, we spent more days skiing at Kirkwood and purchased a building lot in Jan 1971

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Kirkwood Ski Resort is a major part of scenic Highway 88 passing thru the Sierra Mountains with its ambient and environmental heavy wooded areas, along with its intermediate lakes such as, Silver Lake, Caples Lake, Red Lake, Bear River Lake Resort. Travelers are kept alert by the abruptness & dramatic changes of natures lava & granite rock formations which become quite dominant the higher the elevation gets. Grassy meadows, wild flowers, and Aspen trees add never ending contrast & color. This area is a hikers/packers paradise, The opportunity for fishing and boating are available. Wild life such as deer, coyotes, squirrel, chipmunks & birds, are in abundance. Weather varies in winter from extreme cold & high winds to wonderful snow conditions. Summer has beautiful weather with mild to warm temperatures. There are brilliant reflections of sunsets on the Redcliffs. The night skies of the Kirkwood area are outstanding. The elevation of 8000’ allows for massive formations of stars and an extremely bright full moon. Wonderful for star gazers.
