Manager info

Year Purchased: 2002

About: I grew up in a military family and traveled the world. I later joined the Navy myself and spent 12 years as a fighter/attack pilot flying off of aircraft carriers. After the Navy I spent 28 years with Continental Airlines (27 as a Captain ) flying Domestic and International routes. I currently live in Denver.

Why Westcliffe, CO, USA:
Primarily the beautiful stream but also the seclusion and quiet.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Between the tree house, the stream and swing and the acres and acres of land, it's a great place for the kids to play and grow.
