Property description

Come enjoy our family home as if it were yours. It sits on 2.25 acres in beautiful Woodmen Valley. Our property has pine trees but also open views of the mountains (Blodgett Peak) and the city (gorgeous at night). We are 5 minutes from the intersection of I-25 and Woodmen, yet very private. We are close to the South entrance of the Air Force Academy, 15 minutes to Garden of the Gods, 5 minutes to Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame, and it's a close walk or bike ride to the Santa Fe Trail (you can see the trail from our deck). We are also within 20 minutes of the Pikes Peak Cog Railway, Cheyenne Mt. Zoo, Seven Falls, Olympic Training Center, Manitou Incline running trail, Downtown Colorado Springs. We have a large eat-in kitchen with a round table that can seat 8-10 with overflow seating at our island. It is well stocked with cookware and dishes for you to prepare meals. However, there are many restaurants within 5-10 minutes, also. We have a large family room in our walkout basement with a wood burning fireplace, 52' television, 9 recliners. An adjoining room has plenty of area for children to play with toys included. There is an outdoor play set for your children, a trampoline, and plenty of room to roam. Use our gas grill while you enjoy the views. Deer often frequent our property and you can enjoy seeing them in their natural habitat. Our home has 3 bedrooms (each with its own bathroom) plus an office. The recliners in the basement family room are sofas and comfortable for sleeping. We have slept 5 people on sofas, 2 people on one queen bed in the Master Bedroom, 2 people on one double bed in the Americana Guest Bedroom, and 2 people on one queen sleeper sofa with memory foam in the smaller guest bedroom. The bedroom locations include the main level master bedroom with queen bed, television, mountain view and full bath. Walk out from the master bedroom right onto the deck. The second smaller guest bedroom is on the main level and has a sleeper sofa and a bathroom. The Americana Guest Bedroom is in the finished basement and also has it's own bathroom. There is plenty of floor room for sleeping bags and inflatable mattresses (we can provide two of each). Our front deck has a little pond with table and chairs for your relaxation. The hummingbirds provide great entertainment during the summer evenings. Air conditioning keeps you cool in the summer and during the winter you might enjoy building a wood fire in one of our two fireplaces. (One fireplace is in our cozy Living Room-I love to read in this room. The other fireplace is in our large Family Room in the walk-out finished basement. Wood is included.) If you have babies in your group, we have a Pack 'n Play, High Chair, Bumbo, to help make your stay easier.

Year Purchased: 1998

About: I am a retired teacher from Academy School District 20 and Wayne is retired from Honeywell. We love to travel, fish, boat, and spend time with our family, especially our 5 grandkids! My second career is being a realtor....if you decide you love Colorado Springs, I'd be happy to help you find a home.

Why Colorado Springs:
A retreat in the city, yet close to I-25 and Woodmen. While sitting on the back deck, you will feel like you are in the country. Enjoy a view of the city lights and the mountain range, including Blodgett Peak.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
2.25 acres of Colorado country right in the city. Peaceful, relaxing, family home. 7 minutes to the south entrance of the Air Force Academy. 3 minutes to I-25 for easy commute to anywhere in the city or head up to Denver/Castle Rock/Monument. Woodland Park is a short drive up highway 24 through Ute Pass. Wildlife includes deer, rabbits, coyotes, hummingbirds, and an occasional bobcat or bear.
