                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: My work career has been spent at many great properties through out the country, the Buena Vista Palace, PGA National Resort and Spa, The Breakers and the last 12 years and still my current location at The Broadmoor. I have decided over the past few years that I want to create a 'special home' of my own and treat it as the best 5 Star/5 Diamond experience for my guests.

                  Why the Owner Chose Colorado Springs:
                  Colorado's unsurpassed natural beauty surrounds the house and provides endless possibilities for excitement and exploration. Old Colorado City is described as the gateway to the American West, the neighborhood is framed by the picturesque mountains, lush meadows and scenic canyons that have inspired visitors for centuries. Colorado Springs and the cute historic towns offer an inspiring array of outdoor activities that take advantage of the natural beauty of Colorado and caters to guests' and their individual interests. I love this 1898 house, it is clean and newly renovated from top to bottom inside and out. So close to hiking, cycling, great walks and jogging trails. You can walk out the front door to unique shops, restaurants, ice cold beer and hip music and gathering locations. The area offers classic pub fare,steakhouse favorites and fine dining at the only 5 Star/5 Diamond restaurant in Colorado Springs (Penrose Room)—a true culinary adventure awaits you in Colorado Springs, Old Colorado City and the surronding area.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  With over 300 days of sunshine each year and virtually no humidity, Colorado Springs provides the perfect backdrop to explore the timeless beauty of the West. Historic Old Colorado City is less than 3 blocks away from the house and less then a 4 minute walk, during the summer every Saturday from 7AM-Noon we have a Farmer's Market with local produce, meats, cheese, bread and flowers. Through out the summer every Thursday at Bancroft Park we have concerts and all summer long we have festivals and a Friday Night Art Walk.
