Property description

Cottage-on-the-Green is a spacious, English country style home with new world amenities and comforts, overlooking the 8th green of Antler Creek Golf Course. Located 6 miles east of Colorado Springs, and with over 50 major area attractions, there is something for everyone here.

The kitchen is stocked with coffee and a variety of teas. The home is provided with every convenience – ankle-length robes, lots of board games, entertainment libraries, wireless high-speed internet, and luxurious linens and high-end mattresses that promise a restful night’s sleep.

Cottage-on-the-Green is a beautiful custom home with a fully equipped gourmet kitchen, large open great room featuring fireplace and expansive views of Antler Creek Golf Course, all-together dining with seating for 10, and an elegant cherry wood library of fiction and non-fiction books. The large main level master suite has his and her sinks, walk in closet, and a two person soaker tub. There are three other spacious bedrooms, one on the main level with its own bath and two on the lower level. Also on the lower level, is the multi-purpose media room with HDTV big screen, a large sectional for snuggling (with a queen sleeper), game tables with a large collection of games to chose from, children’s entertainment (something for every age), and another full bath with double sinks.

Outside you will find a delightfully landscaped multi-level garden with a surprise at every turn: fire pit, hot tub, outdoor kitchen and dining areas, and secluded rose gardens that can turn large gatherings into intimate moments. Take a soak in the hot tub or relax in our inviting glider sharing a glass of local Colorado wine while the afternoon sun paints the sky for you over the Front Range.

For the Little Ones - The back yard retreat is fenced and gated for their security. Low-rise beds are available, as well as a pack-and-play, high chair, and baby bath. With the neighborhood park just around the corner, there are plenty of opportunities to get the kids out for sunshine and exercise. Also, excellent facilities for day care and summer camp programs are located at the nearby neighborhood Recreation Center. For a minimal cost, the neighborhood Rec Center is just down the street where you can swim in the zero entry pool designed with your wee ones in mind, play on the waterslide or swim in the lap lanes.

For the older kids there are smores around the fire pit, or basketball, ping pong, air hockey, foosball, state of the art exercise equipment, and swimming at the Rec Center, or a round of golf at Antler Creek Golf Course. The public course caters to players of all abilities and is only two blocks from the house. Also, the local area offers rock climbing, kayaking, white water rafting,14ers to hike, caves to explore, and much more.

For the Adults – The variety of local restaurants, pubs, shopping, golf, sightseeing and movie theatres within minutes of the house should cater to your every desire and promise you a vacation filled with all your favorites.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Our busy growing family has always enjoyed Cottage-on-the-Green as a restful gathering place after work, school, or a hard day of vacation. Skiing and snowboarding day trips always ended in the hot tub to rest and rejuvenate sore muscles. Bicycle tours through Black Forest had to include an al fresco lunch grilled on our outdoor bistro at the end of the ride. Jane Austin, Frances Hodgson Burnett and our other favorite authors seem just a little more enchanting when read secluded from the rest of the world in the midst of our own Secret Garden. Your family and friends may enjoy, as ours have, the spontaneous X-Box championships (X-Box not included) with friends and family on the big screen, a stringed quartet around the fire pit outside (high school orchestral members not included), 4-Square mayhem in the 2-car garage (sidewalk chalk/balls included), or a 5K, 10K, or 20K run on the local paved and natural trails. We enjoy our peace and tranquility and we enjoy a little life on the edge too. You can find it all here at Cottage-on-the-Green.

Why the Owner Chose Colorado Springs:
We built Cottage-on-the-Green looking to find that perfect lifestyle blend of being close to town and all the activities but far enough away to enjoy bicycling country roads and lounging under quiet sunsets. We chose Antler Creek Golf Course because of its accessible location and beautifully maintained grounds. You'll enjoy the convenience of being centrally located to all that Colorado has to offer. To the west you'll find the downtown area including the Fine Arts Center and the Colorado Springs Orchestra at the Pikes Peak Center, Sky Sox minor league baseball at Security Service field, rock climbing at Garden of the Gods, and of course the Air Force Academy. Heading south will bring you to the spectacular productions at the World Arena, professional racing at Pikes Peak International Raceway, and up to class V rapids on the Arkansas River. A quick drive to the north features the Renaissance Festival, Denver's Elitch Gardens amusement park or the world renowned Botanical Gardens, and you can pick your flavor of professional sports from the Broncos at Sports Authority Field, the Rockies at Coors Field, and both the Nuggets and the Avalanche at the Pepsi Center.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home was built in 2005 specifically to host large gatherings. We wanted to be the “hang out place” for our boys and their high school friends. So, not only did we build large rooms to fit lots of friends but we landscaped with even larger parties in mind: the weekend 'golf retreat”; The Big Game on the big screen; the New Year’s Eve hot tub party; 4th of July fireworks from the golf course clubhouse two blocks away (or avoid the crowds—we watch from the front lawn); the high school graduation party, the marriage rehearsal dinner, and a weekly young adults group from our church that met here over dinner for years. If you know people, and you need space, you’ll find it at Cottage-on-the-Green.
