A very short drive by Southwest Colorado standards.

About the owner: I am a retired Air Force and Airline pilot, My wife worked for Crown Zellerback in Las Vegas and now owns a local hair salon. Since I've retired I hate to leave this property except to buy materials for the ongoing projects. Our little Blue Heeler (Matilda) and her friend (Tigo, a neighbor's dog) watch after me every minute of the day. My wife, carolyn and I are both from Parkersburg, WV. and we visit family there often.
Why the Owner Chose Dove Creek, CO, USA:
My wife and I lived in Las Vegas, NV. for many years while in the Air Force and airline business. We wanted to get away from the traffic and other bustle so we looked for solitude and reasonable weather and Dove Creek found us. We have beautiful summers, mild winters, bright starry nights, no neighbors in sight, hardly a cloud in the sky, unlimited visibly and more days of sunshine than southern California. As a lifestyle, the remoteness is not for everyone, but for a vacation or a couple-of-days getaway is for everyone.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We purchased this land for the beautiful views and the character of the property. We have a barn with stalls, a corral, and 20 acres of grazing; just in case you want bring horses. We have built up the property to our liking and it is complete, but still a work in progress. If you own a house you know what I mean. This property is us, we love it and we want you to visit. We are sure you will see it just as we see it.
