Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: This is my job. My houses were meticulously renovated for the vacation home experience. Our rental houses are above and beyond your average home rental. We provide concierge one on one service, impeccably clean homes and attention to detail. 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:
Home is decorated in a Tuscan Villa style and 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. Home 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 the kitchen is stocked with. Feel like you are 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. Special requests are taken for any thing you are looking for or need help with. We are here to make sure your vacation stay is filled with memories as beautiful and majestic as the city is itself.
