                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About the owner: Mike & Kathleen have lived in Grand County for 15 years. Their love of the outdoors brought them to this site to build this home in 2003. We love outdoor sports such as fishing, kayaking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing and golfing. We love this home all seasons of the year but fall is the most spectacular due to the beautiful changing aspen trees.

                  Why the Owner Chose Grand Lake:
                  We chose this piece of property because of it's sunny location. Abundance of aspen & pine forest attracted us to this secluded location.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The home is a newer ranch style and built 10 years ago. The space is very comfortable and makes for easy living. The great room sits in the middle with ceilings 18 feet high with stripped trees reaching the height of the great room and running through the ceiling. Floor to ceiling windows provide great mountain views and sunsets. The bedrooms sit on either side of the great room with a bathroom adjacent to both.
