Colorado Springs chateau / country house description

This spacious 5,300 sq ft home, built in 1981, sits on 6.3 acres among the majestic Ponderosa pines and Blue Spruce of the Black Forest of northern Colorado Springs. It boasts a balcony in the front looking out into the woods with enough seating for 12 and a porch on the back. Only 50 yards off the back porch, is the Fox Run Regional Park which has two ponds, a gazebo, large meadows for playing sports, two playground areas, two trails through the woods for hiking, and a picturesque view of Pikes Peak. You are sure to be comfortable in one of the four bedrooms, the well-lit living room or the lower floor family room.

Your vacation home is situated in the peaceful woods, yet is only 2 miles off of I-25 and gives you the amenities of a large grocery store and Wal-Mart five minutes away. This up-scale home is ideal for attending Academy events or for exploring other area attractions including Garden of the Gods, Seven Falls, Cave of the Winds, Focus on the Family Visitor Center, and other wonderful Colorado Springs and Denver area attractions.

We would love for you to be our guest.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1999

                  About the owner: We have been married for 34 wonderful years and God has blessed us with four amazing children.

                  Why the Owner Chose Colorado Springs:
                  We purchased this home so that we could have enough room to spread out without bumping into our neighbors. The treed 600' front yard provides complete privacy from the road below We loved the open floor plan of a passive solar house, the proximity to Fox Run Regional Park, and the quick access to so many things. We love it here and we think you will enjoy it too!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
                  Excellent location for participating in Air Force Academy activities such as USAFA Graduation and USAFA Parents Weedend. Less that 2 hour drive to Summit county ski and summer recreation areas Breckenridge, Keystone, Winter Park, Copper, Vail, Beaver Creek. Aspen, and A-Basin.
