Our home

We have been in our lovely three-level mountain home perched on the side of a steep wooded hill for 10 years. It is an architect's design of cedar and glass with views of the surrounding area. It feels like an elegant mountain getaway. The main level is openly designed with a lovely studio/sitting room connected, and a bath with a shower. The lower level has two bedrooms. The upper level contains the master bedroom and walk in closet/bath/toilet. All levels have walk out porches. The main level also has a ground level deck. We are secluded, but there are neighbors nearby to assist if needed.

Who we are

  1. We are a retired professional couple who still work abroad occasionally doing public health and mental health work. Barry teaches at University of Colorado here in Boulder. More recently we've worked in Sri Lanka and East Timor. We have lots of family nearby and enjoy grandchildren immensely. We've lived overseas often working for WHO, UNICEF, and other organizations. We've done a lot of house sitting during the many years we lived like traveling gypsies. We have two cats and a dog, which can be cared for, while we are gone, by family. Ideally we'd like to leave our two cats in the house, but realize that may not be possible. As we are 15 minutes from town, we will provide a car for local use. We can also arrange airport pick up.
