Year Purchased: 2001
About the owner: I (Jim) grew up in Clifton, NJ and Sheri was raised in Memphis, TN. We have 3 children, 2 boys married and our daughter currently attends college in Tennessee. We currently live in Greenwood Village, CO. We built this log home back in 2000/2001 and have created memories to last a lifetime over the years with our family and friends.
Why the Owner Chose Fraser, CO, USA:
We purposely built our log home in this location because of the peacefulness of the Pole Creek area and to get a true 'Rocky Mountain' feel and experience vs. the busy city life. With that said, the location is perfect as it is a short drive to the many recreational sites here in Grand County (ski, golf, hike, fishing, horseback riding, spas etc.).
The Unique Benefits at this House:
You can literally walk to Pole Creek Golf Course and Snow Mountain Ranch from the property!
