Owner info

Year Purchased: 1984

About the owner: I enjoy this delightful home as my country vacation when I come to visit my sons and granddaughter in Colorado. Having raised my family and gardened here for 20 years, I thoroughly enjoy this quiet space away from lively San Francisco where I rent a 1 bdrm apartment I also call home.

Why the Owner Chose Paonia:
Garvin Mesa is one of the jewels of the North Fork Valley with its spectacular views, and the open space of nine acres means quiet and privacy. We were thrilled by the south facing sunny land to garden, the beauty, the elk, deer and wild turkey who make the place their home.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Country living near the friendly community of Paonia Colorado with yoga studio, art center, dining.
