Manager info

Year Purchased: 2001

About: Deborah and her family live on the Gulf Coast in the South. Nature's Bounty Ranch is their dream. The Colorado air is cool and fresh and the views entertain and excite. Doug (pictured on right) loves to visit the ranch and he helps out. Our families have been friends for generations! We hope that you will enjoy the ranch it as much as we do!

Why Placerville, CO, USA:
We started our family quest in Phoenix looking at property and made our way up to the Rockies through Idaho and clear up to Kilispell in Montana. The original lure was to get away from the steamy Gulf Coast. We were looking around the mountains in Telluride and they are the prettiest I'd see. Finding 86 acres took some time but when I saw the spectacular views we made the investment. We built this home to maximize views and comfort. The in floor heating system keeps us comfortable year around. There is no better place to see the stars and relax!

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
There are dozens of ski trails in the area and we bring our horses on longer stays. Days go fast is the fresh air hiking on the ranch and taking day trips on horseback, fishing, visiting the hot spring in Ouray Co. The House is Great! Interiors by Denver's Liz Temple enhance the post and beam log framing. Comfort is assured from the in floor heating system under the tile. We gather around the stone fireplace while preparing dinner. In the evening we enjoy soaking in the hot tub!
