About Melinda White

We live in NY now, but we bought this house as a primary residence while living and working in Edwards. Melinda is a Veterinarian and Brian runs a privately held restaurant and real estate group. We share our home with a daughter, a small super-mutt, a German Shepherd, and a small, fierce cat. The three animals used to love spending all day outside patrolling the property.

Melinda White purchased this house in 2008

Why Melinda White chose Edwards

This house has spectacular views. We used to sit on the porch and watch the storms roll in over Castle Peak. The other side of the house boasts a sweeping view of the forever wild Webster-Scutter Ranch. The 1/2 acre lot is quite private despite the thickly settled neighborhood. It is close to Edwards' shopping, restaurants, skiing. Our neighbors are phenomenal.

What makes this house unique

The bay window looks out to the open space where you will often see elk, horses, deer, foxes, hawks etc roaming. We frequently have hummingbirds hanging out in the yard. You can go out the front door and walk right in to the open space. There you'll find tons of hiking/snowshoeing/sledding trails. The half acre yard is private and nice for children to run around. Dogs love it too.

Lovely house with a fantastic back yard view

  • 5 of 5

We had 6 of us staying here, and we loved the place! The Arrowhead base of Beaver Creek ski resort is less than 10 minutes away, and the town has lots of cute places to eat. We were all very cozy in the house, which is very pretty. But again, the best thing is the view up to the hills behind the house.

Incredible memories!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home from 12/23-12/26, 2016. My family travelled from Phoenix and Las Vegas to spend Christmas with my daughter who lives in Avon. We stayed at Melinda's amazing home. We brought our two dogs, who enjoyed the stay as much as we did! The home is beautiful and comfortable. Melinda was very nice and got back to me every time I emailed her with questions prior to our arrival. There was plenty of room for the 5 people and 2 dogs. The area is beautiful and the neighbors dogs were very friendly with our dogs. I would recommend this home to everyone! And the deposit refund came so quick! Thank you Melinda for helping us make some incredible memories!!

Beautiful Edwards home

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Melinda for sharing your beautiful home with us. The bay window looking out onto the opens space was certainly beautiful, as was gazing at the stars. The home is well equip for cooking, and the couch/living room very comfortable. The bedding was very comfortable as well. The home is very clean and well cared for. It's only a short drive to Beavercreek where we skied, and the town of Edwards is very nice. Thanks again!

Breathtaking and friendly neighbors

  • 5 of 5

We had an extended stay because my husband needed shoulder surgery and physical therapy. It was over two weeks at the house. We were so comfortable! We are a family of 7 plus a big dog. The only thing I didn't like was that our dog didn't have a closed in back yard. But then it challenged us to try letting him out with other dogs loose. The result was delightful! He made new friends. :-)

The house was charming and met more than basic extended stay needs for our large family. The view in the window seat was the subject of a million selfies and photo ops. Nice furniture and a pleasant fireplace.

Communication with Melinda was excellent if we had any needs. We felt loved and well attended.

Great House

The house was great! The open space out back was great for the dogs. The kitchen had everything we needed. Also, the owner was always quick in responding. We would definitely stay here again!
