Inside you'll find the home has been well appointed with antiques and period decor that will return you to the late nineteenth century, except with modern conveniences.

Why the Owner Chose Colorado Springs:
It's a great piece of Manitou Springs history. built at the turn on the 19th century. The home is located only two blocks from downtown Manitou, so it's in a very walkable location. The fact that it's located near the eastern edge of downtown means you miss most traffic when you drive. Also there is off-street parking in the rear of the home which is a huge plus in Manitou

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The home is located in a quiet residential neighborhood on the edge of downtown Manitou Springs. It provides great walking or driving access to the many area attractions which makes it a great home base. It comes with three off-street parking spaces, a huge plus for Manitou! There is an outside area where marijuana may be legally smoked. There are natural mineral springs freely available in Manitou Springs You are within walking distance of the World Famous Penny Arcade
