A House With A View

When my mom, sister and I moved to the Denver area in the early 80’s I didn’t know what to expect. Like many transplants we were clueless as to how our lives were going to change and what to expect with our new Colorado experience. I admit, many others won’t, I thought there would be ski lifts running from Denver proper and the ski areas were just moments away. My mother purchased a townhouse in the Denver area. We had common walls with the neighbors and entered and exited via the garage. I don’t think I ever met more than one neighbor.

On weekends we took the time to explore the area with emphasis on the I-70 corridor. Breckenridge was a favorite – a cute village full of antique Victorian houses mixed among shops and tourists going skiing. And of course Beau Jos!

After we got comfortable with our surroundings and gained experience getting around my mother wondered why anybody would live in Colorado and not have a view from their house. There seemed to be views from every location! However, with every move, over several years she never lived in a view of anything but the neighbors.

I purchased my first house, a condo and if I used my imagination, tried hard I could sometimes see Pikes Peak from the balcony. My second house in the center of Denver had, well, a view of the neighbors. As time has passed I’ve managed to buy and live in a house for more than 10 years. It’s an ordinary house, not a thing is remarkable about the house itself. But front and back I have Mountain Views! Living in Fremont County, Southern Colorado, affords many mountain views.

If you live in the Canon City area you live in the Upper Arkansas Valley. The Arkansas River runs down the Valley. So if you live here you can most likely see mountains from your house. I look at Pikes Peak and the Garden Park area from the front of my house. The view from the back of my house I see various mountains and gorgeous sunsets.

If you are thinking about moving to the Canon City area the house you choose is important. The investment in your home is an important process. But with a little effort I can help you find a property with a view of something other than the neighbor.
