Why the Owner Chose Golden, CO, USA:
Growing up in Western Massachusetts, I came to enjoy the out of doors and the many culturanl, educational, historical and entertainment venues it offered. Moving to Denver and soon after to Lookout Mountain has been a life fullfilling experience. I love the out of doors including downhill and cross-country skiing and hiking in our beautiful mountains. Its been thrilling to climb 14 "Fourteeners". The cultural grown in both Golden and Denver area has been amazing. We now have Professional Football, Hockey, Soccer, Basketball and our Colorado Rockies Baseball Team. Opera, Symphonies and Play Houses are popular attractions.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Access to premier Skiing, Hiking, Fly Fishing, and Mountaineering in the Colorado Mountains has been a life long pleasure. But I don't even need to get into a car to enjoy the beauty and peacefulness of the mountain foothills just outside my front door where there is 25 acres of "open space"! Great for Cross County Skiing!
