                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: This is my job. My houses were meticulously renovated for the vacation home experience. My rental houses are above and beyond your average home rental. I have traveled to Europe numerous times and have a connection with the culture, architecture and the general feeling that European properties exude. That is why I've decorated in a French and Italian theme. I enjoy sharing our city with others and enjoy making people feel comfortable and special. I will do my best to make your stay comfortable and worry free.

                  Why the Owner Chose Colorado Springs:
                  I chose this location because of the historic nature of this area of Colorado Springs. I also own and operate my 'honeymoon' French Parisian cottage nearby on the same street. Building began in the area in the late 1800's but most along this historic street are early 1900's. This house was built in 1914. It is just a few blocks to the I-25 corridor and is minutes from the city center. You can get virtually anywhere in the city within 20 minutes from this location. This beautiful home is located in the eclectic historic Old North End/Downtown area. This is a not a cookie cutter suburban area but a diverse and historic part of our city. It is minutes from Colorado College, downtown, Penrose Hospital, UCCS and Garden of the Gods. It is a short 8-10 minute drive to the AFA. I have lived in Colorado Springs for over 30 years and know the area quite well so I can give you concierge service or advice in any area you need.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  I chose to decorate this house in a Tuscan Villa style. The home has undergone an extensive renovation. The oak and fir floors have been returned to their orignial lustre. Both bathrooms are brand new. Tons of attention to detail went into the renovation. The walls have a venetian plaster that was hand troweled. Painted with the warm Tuscan colors of golds, sienna and greens. The house is very enveloping and warm with perfectly placed lighting and Italian themed chandeliers. The kitchen was finished with top of the line stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops. Enjoy all the accouterments's the kitchen is stocked with. I wanted the feeling of traveling to Tuscany Italy when you walk into the house and gardens. Every piece of furniture, decor, dishes, etc. was lovingly hand chosen for this property for your enjoyment and comfort. I will take special requests for any thing you are looking for or need help with. I am here to make sure your vacation stay is filled with memories as beautiful and majestic as the city is itself.
