Colorado Springs apartment description

Welcome to our conveniently located, 1897 brick two bedroom, one bathroom 700 square foot upper duplex apartment. It is located on a safe, quiet street just 5 blocks from everything that historic Downtown Colorado Springs has to offer! We also have 2 sister cottages next door, (VRBO #s 355182 & 418955) available to accomodate larger parties...

This light, bright and airy upstairs apartment is the perfect spot from which to explore and experience all the wonders that Colorado Springs has to offer! The entrance to the apartment is from the back of the building which is accessed through a walkway between this building and the VRBO property next door. There is an outside staircase leading up to a small deck and the entrance to the 2nd floor apartment.

The first bedroom has a queen sized bed. The second, smaller bedroom has a trundle bed that can open up to two twin beds.

The furnishings are contemporary. There is a dining room table (also in the living room) that seats four.

There is a 42' Flat Screen TV in the Livingroom with full cable TV service. We are also set up with fast wireless internet access so you can surf the web.

There are oak hardwood floors throughout (no carpeting at all). There is a nice size modern kitchen with a dish washer, note not an eat-in kitchen. The place is stocked with many extra amenities including paper towels, spices, shampoo, conditioner, trash bags, baggies and napkins There are air-conditioners in the bedrooms and the living room (which cool the whole place).

There is also a barbecue grill in the fenced yard at the bottom of the outside staircase.

The bathroom consists of a small 30' by 30' shower, a small sink and a toilet. The washing machine and drier are also in the bathroom. It's a little tight but is quite functional.

From this property, you can walk to downtown boutiques, restaurants, clubs, and antique shops. Two blocks away is a fabulous urban walking park called Shooks' Run Park, with a meandering stream and you can walk for miles on this paved trail. We are also less than ten minutes from historic Old Colorado City and fifteen minutes from exciting Manitou Springs with their wonderful restaurants, shopping, supermarkets and galleries. Garden of the Gods park, with its exquisite red rock formations, is a must see and it is less than 15 minutes away with a fantastic visitor's center. The Broadmoor Hotel is just a hop, skip and jump away, as well, less than 15 minutes... The Air Force Academy is about 15 minutes north of us, and Colorado College is about 15 blocks away. The Olympic Training Center is east of us and less than a five minute drive.

Bear Creek Dog Park and Bear Creek Nature Center are less than 10 minutes west, and are wonderful places to take the kids! There is also a beautiful mountain zoo less than 15 minutes away. There are many fabulous day trips less than 2 hours from us, including the drive up Pikes Peak, marvellilng at the Royal Gorge, rafting on the Arkansas river, soaking in hotsprings, exploring Cave of the Winds, and visiting the Cliff-dwelling museum, all great entertainment for kids.

              Location

              This property is located in the heart of Colorado Springs' Downtown area on a quiet one-way street. It is just a few blocks from all the restaurants, shops, clubs etc that the downtown has to offer. There is a wonderful urban walking park with a lovely creek called Shook's Run Park that you can walk in for miles. It's a short drive to the Garden of the Gods Park and is about a 10-15 minute ride to the Air Force Academy. The house is a 10 minute walk to Colorado College, as well.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2004

              About the owner: Pardon the corny photo from X-Mas last year at our daughter's house... We have 3 Corgi dogs of our own, all rescued from the Humane Society, and our daughter has a 4th Corgi, also a rescue... We take our 3 pups with us whenever we can, and they love taking long hikes with us around the many parks in the Colorado Springs area. We have been married for close to 30 years. We lived in New York City for our first 35+ years, and have lived in Colorado for the past 17 years. We love it here! (You will too!)

              Why the Owner Chose Colorado Springs:
              We lived in downtown Colorado Springs for five years. We had fallen in love with the downtown area when we first moved here and when this unique property came up for sale, we couldn't resist!

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              Colorado Springs has many open space areas and parks. We have 3 Corgi dogs (all rescue dogs, adopted at the Colorado Springs Humane Society), and we take them hiking up into the surrounding parks and mountains. We loved being in the heart of all that Colorado Springs, Old Colorado City and Manitou have to offer!
