Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: Steve & Laura have lived in Colorado since 1986. We came for the mountains, the climate, and the adventures of the west. We have enjoyed hiking, hut-to-hut skiing, backpacking, rafting, down hill skiing, x-country skiing, climbing 14 teeners, thermal hot springs, biking, mountain vistas, fall color changes, thunderstorms and lightening strikes, deep peaceful snows, peach festivals, chocolate festivals, beer festivals, concerts, and more.

Why the Owner Chose Leadville, CO, USA:
Steve & Laura purchased the home in 1996 so our newborn son would have a place to create a lifetime of childhood adventures. It's a place where we could enjoy the outdoors without crowds and build memories with friends and family.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Tranquility in the pines with modern amenities. Located in the heart of the Colorado Rockies with plenty of opportunities for outdoor adventures. Close to lots of fourteeners and wilderness areas. Close to glitzy towns and world famous ski areas but quiet by itself. Sit on the deck and watch the mountain weather unfold. Enjoy the views of the Sawatch range, the mountain flowers, and the big blue sky.
