About Gary Root
We are retired as an engineer and teacher from the East Texas area. We have always enjoyed being in the Rocky Mountains and have had a soft place in our hearts for Winter Park. When one of our daughters moved to Denver, it gave us added incentive to pursue property ownership here.
We enjoy touring our beautiful country as well as foreign destinations. We also love being at either our home in East Texas or in Winter Park.
We have five wonderful married children and 13 precious grandchildren. Our family is very important and we enjoy spending time with each of them, whether in Texas or Colorado.
Gary Root purchased this house in 2014
Why Gary Root chose Winter Park
On a tour of this home, during an open house, the outside as well as the inside of this magnificent property with its enormous wood beam structure, gourmet kitchen, beautiful fireplaces and incredible mountain views left us truly in love with this home.
What makes this house unique
Colorado Dreamin' is located in the Arapaho National Forest in the quiet, upscale, Lakota neighborhood directly across from the Winter Park Village and slopes. Only a couple of miles from downtown Winter Park and Frasier makes it a perfect location. Rocky Mountain National Park and Grand Lake are less that an hour drive where you can participate in it's many summer activities. For us the many year round outdoor activities and the beauty of being in the middle of the Rocky Mountains is a dream come true.
