TBT Ken Caryl Style... It’s stock show parade day! 🐃🐂🐃🐂🐄🐎 As a proud CSU parent and farm raised girl, I love this annual event, and love that Ken Caryl is full of stock - show related history. In 1917 Shaffer hired Frank Jay Smith, just out of school in Fort Collins, to manage his livestock operation. Smith, who had his own ideas about cattle breeding, was given a free hand and managed well. Ken-Caryl began making a name for itself in 1918 and after that reaped more than its share of ribbons and trophies. 🥇🏆🏅
In 1924 Deacon, an 11-month-old Hereford calf, walked away as the Grand Champion of the International Livestock Show in Chicago. According to a news service story, this win was remarkable because it was a Hereford that triumphed, while most grand championships were won by the Angus breed. President and Mrs. Coolidge attended that show and sent personal congratulations to Shaffer. 🏆

TBT-Ken Caryl Style... Styrofoam blocks?? Remember those old racquetball courts at the Community Center? They are now a fantastic weight room and the process of converting them to what they are today during the remodel a few years ago is interesting. The floor level had to be brought up to the same level as the rest of the fitness area and in order to do this without using massive amounts of concrete (poured in lifts with drying time for each pour), giant styrofoam blocks were used to fill the space. They were stored on tennis court 3 until they were needed and cut into size to fill the space before the floor was poured. Two openings were made in the wall between the former courts because the wall was a supporting wall. Turned out pretty great, I'd say!

TBT - Ken Caryl Style... Taffeta and bows... 👗🧵🎀 I wonder what Christmas was like at the Manor House a century ago... I'll bet it was quite a festive and ornate ordeal! John C. Shaffer, owner of Ken-Caryl Ranch, was a wealthy newspaper man turned rancher and he just loved to spend money. He was generous in the extreme at one time buying his granddaughters half a dozen dresses each. They were identical in color and trim and had ruffles on the skirts. Made of taffeta, "They were perfect for dancing," according to Barbara Tuft, a granddaughter. Their mother, a practical woman, wondered where they could wear the dresses and Mr. Shaffer replied, "They go to Sunday school, don't they?" I'd imagine those dresses didn't get a lot of wear on a ranch, but Christmas was one of those occasions! We are so fortunate our KCRHS has researched our ranch's roots and that Carroll's descendants were open to sharing some family stories with them. 🥰 I hope you all make your own special Ken Caryl Christmas memories this season!❤️💚❤️💚

Tuesday Tip....Ready to hit the slopes but dreading the traffic there and back???❄️❄️❄️ Maybe it's time to finally get that mountain condo or second home!! As an avid skier and owner of a mountain property, I follow the real estate market in the hills closely and service Summit County as well. Here's a great article highlighting ski towns where prices have gone up the most—something investors and those who rent out their houses like to see., and also where prices have dropped, or risen the least, a welcome trend for buyers on a budget. Give me a call if you want to look for YOUR dream ski getaway! 🏂⛷🎿 Tips UP!❄️❄️❄️

Monday Market Update 🏘🏘🏘 Rest assured that your Ken Caryl home value is holding steady, and ever increasing, even as prices are flattening out a bit here and in the local MLS market.. Inventory is still very low, though so it's still a great time to buy or sell locally, especially as interest rates are leveling off and dropping below 7% finally! Give me a call if you want to discuss your personal real estate needs. ☎️I follow the local market carefully!

TBT- Ken Caryl Style... ✨DID YOU KNOW THAT DENVER BASICALLY INVENTED OUTDOOR CHRISTMAS LIGHTING IN THE EARLY 1900S? ✨ Just a few years before John Shaffer bought Ken Caryl, in 1914, the future of outdoor Christmas lighting began, cementing Denver’s claim to fame for holiday flair for years to come. A local Denver electrician by the name of D.D. Sturgeon, in an attempt to cheer up his ill 10-year-old son with some much-needed Christmas spirit, decided to dip some lightbulbs in red and green paint and string them on the tree outside his window. 🎄🎄🎄 And so it all began!✨✨✨✨✨✨
After a drive around the Ken Caryl neighborhoods, I'd say Ken Caryl neighborhoods carry on this tradition rather well, wouldn't you? And our Manor House looked fantastic last night as she welcomed neighbors!!!🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄 - What's your favorite festive street or house in the neighborhood? ✨✨

Monday Market Update - 🏘🏡🏠 STR collapse???? I believe this article has some credibility- after being both a STR (short term rental) and long term rental investor, myself, I think there are some good sound bytes here!

If you own a STR, I'd love to hear your feedback on year over year performance.
If you are a user of AirBnB, likewise - what have your experiences been?

In the long game, owning Real Estate is always a good investment. Don't shy away from it, just be smart and get good advice. I'd love to chat with you about your ideas and real estate needs!

TBT – Ken Caryl Style – Twins, 👬oil boom days, bars, restaurants… 🍻🥂Our local Ken Caryl Historical Society has really dug deep in the past to get first hand interviews that unveil our local history. In 2013, they interviewed Dean Peterson, who was the former owner of the Manor House and he shared many stories with them. Dean and his twin brother grew up in Denver, graduated from CU and was a stockbroker at Boettcher & Company. Together they decided to go into the restaurant business and those of you who were young and single and here in the 70’s and 80’s during the oil boom days, might recognize some of their old Glendale bar hangouts like the Bull & Bush (STILL THERE!), Toby Jug’s, Ichabod’s Simms Landing (ALSO STILL THERE!), Marina Landing, the Hungry Dutchman, Off Belleview Grill…. Well, the last one he purchased was the Manor House.
He purchased it in 1990, when it was owned half by Columbia Savings and half by John’s Manville. He had been up there for a couple of parties given by Bob Baker who was the Chairmen of the Board of Columbia Savings and a good friend of his. Bob suggested he make it into a restaurant. He initially hesitated because it is so hard to get to because C-470 wasn’t built yet. He put almost a million dollars into the Manor House and it was his most "upscale" restaurant. After a while, it was not drawing crowds and the building was showing its age, so Peterson sold The Manor House in 2006 for $2.4 million… Glad the grand old place has survived and looking forward to seeing her all dressed up next Wednesday!✨✨✨✨✨✨
