Colorado is known for it’s breathtaking scenery; as you look above the tree line towards our never ending blue bird skies have you ever spotted one of these unique Colorado homes?

Swetsville Zoo-Fort Collins Colorado

More than 30 years ago Bill Swets created the ’Swetsville Zoo’ on his property off of Harmony Road in Fort Collins. His property features about 180 sculptures created out of metal. Each piece resembles a different animal or mythological creature. Swets built them all by hand! Worth a drive by, this unique home is sure to make you stop your car and take a photo!

The Sculptured House is a cool elliptical curved house built on Genesee Mountain in 1963 by architect Charles Deaton. It is featured prominently in the 1973 Woody Allen sci-fi comedy Sleeper.

Puts your childhood treehouse to shame, doesn’t it? Built in 1971, the TreeHouse is attached to 4 spruce trees with a rock staircase leading to the front door. Want to stay here for yourself? YOU CAN! It’s available HERE

Bishop Castle-Rye

Bishop Castle is a monumental statue in stone and iron that Jim Bishop has been creating for a while now. Three full stories of interior rooms complete with a Grand Ballroom, soaring towers and bridges with vistas of a hundred miles are just a few of the astonishing amenities this Castle shares.

If you’re NOT looking for a TreeHouse or Castle-or even if you are…Stop into the Gateway Land & Development Real Estate office in beautiful Vail Village!

Yes indeed…a quick look up toward the top of most hills and one will see the change of colors.  It was a couple of weeks ago when I first noticed yellows on the tip of tree branches.  It is a welcome site to me and I enjoy the color variations displayed.  Do You?

It is the cooler nights which prompted the color change and this week in Edwards we have dipped below the forty degree mark more than once.  Don’t get discouraged…the daytime temps have been glorious in the mid-seventies with plentiful sunshine.  This cycle is expected to continue for awhile, so come up and join or visit us!

Until then, enjoy the colors and as we all know soon the snow will be flying!  Hope to see you on the hills soon!

Lanterns    Lantern1

This past weekend our Front Range Friends were enticed to take part in a beautiful Lantern Festival in Dacono on Saturday and Sunday nights! Live music provided amazing aviance and serenity as the glowing lanterns floated weightlessly…into the night sky! Lanterns are released for good fortune, hopes and dreams, but they can also provide a release of burdens, fear and regret. 

On May 20th, there will be two venues hosting Lanternfest in Colorado, one in Colorado Springs and the other in Pueblo. This should be a spectacular sight, stay tuned for more information!
