Your new Colorado waterfront home rests on the banks of the Conejos River in southwest Colorado. You and your guests will enjoy this finely crafted Lindal Cedar home located bordering the Rio Grande National Forest. Lindal Cedar homes have been the design build standard for many years as the go to company for owners wanting that mountain home character with custom elements added by the owners during the design stages of these uniquely placed homes. What makes the Lindal home so unique? Is it the soaring volumes, open spaces and delicately articulated expanses of glass? The warm glow of cedar, mated with the massive strength of the post and beam frame? The stability of the homes and the company that produces them? Quality and continuous refinement? Or is it the unmatched calm and comfort of the Lindal home style?

A long standing name in real estate, United Country has always led the pack with marketing, producing the first ever Nationwide catalog of properties for sale in 1928. It was such a revolutionary idea, that one of the original copies is currently in the Smithsonian Museum! Since then, United Country has continued to fine tune their marketing platform and with the rise of the internet search they again revolutionized the real estate marketing industry. Says Teresa, "We have what we call Specialty Marketing Groups, or SPGs, which represent certain niche areas of real estate. We (United Country) realized that oftentimes buyers are looking for a specific type of property, which is not always based on the constraints of location." The specialty marketing groups are a way for buyers to search for properties based on keywords and type of property. Visitors to United Country platforms can search hunting properties, or fishing properties as well as retirement homes, farms and ranches, mountain property or log cabins and homes.
