Colorado Springs house description

'Location, Location, Location!'

We just installed central air conditioning throughout this 4 bedroom Cheyenne Canyon home. We also just added a 10' by 15' patio just outside the kitchen's sliding glass doors.
We also just put in all new kitchen cabinets.


Welcome to our mountain getaway retreat in the city, located in beautiful, safe Cheyenne Canyon just 5 blocks from the historic Broadmoor Hotel!! This is a unique area within Colorado Springs, because it is in the heart of nature, where you can see wildlife (deer, foxes, and bear) and truly experience Colorado's rugged outdoors. It is nothing like staying in a city. Although we are less than ten minutes from downtown, we are worlds apart.

This light, bright 1800 square foot four bedroom getaway borders miles of parks and open spaces. It is the perfect spot to explore and experience all the wonders that Colorado Springs has to offer! 'The Canyon' was a small sleepy resort community in years gone by, one of only two canyons in Colorado Springs, The homes were mostly built in the 1920's and 1930's and were bungalows and cottages. As the years passed and people discovered this oasis, more homes were built.

This attached house was built in 1963 and it shares its kitchen wall with another house but there is more privacy because it is not built side by side, but is front to back... There are about 6 homes in this quiet enclave, set back about 100 feet from the main street. When you walk out your front door, it is unlikely that you will see anyone, but the parking area is 30 feet or so in front of the house and the front house also parks there.
This property has four bedrooms. On the first floor, each bedroom has a queen sized bed with a memory foam mattress. In the downstairs, we have a twin size bed in one bedroom and a queen size bed in the other bedroom. There is also a trundle bed with 2 twin mattresses that we can set up downstairs, so we can accomodate up to nine people in beds.

This inviting property is furnished with a comfy sofa in the upstairs living room. There are 42' flat screen televisions in the upstairs living room and the downstairs family room. Both TVs have full cable TV service. We are also set up with fast wireless internet access so you can sit outside on the patio and surf the web..

The decor is contemporary with oak hardwood floors throughout the upstairs. There is carpeting throughout the downstairs. There is a full eat-in kitchen with an oak table and chairs, linoleum floors, a nice electric stove and a dishwasher. There are air-conditioners in the bedrooms and the living rooms (which cool the whole place), but summer evenings in Colorado tend to be cooler, so it cools down beautifully at night. The downstairs has a second refridgerator in a kitchen/dining area which has the washing machine and drier instead of a stove.
There are two full bathrooms, one upstairs and one downstairs.
There is a small patio off the kitchen with a gas barbeque, as well as a patio table and chairs for al fresco dining. There is an 'au naturale' yard that wraps around 3 sides of the house...

The property is a short two block walk farther into the canyon to the Stratton Open Space Preserve where you can walk on miles of trails,enjoy wonderful hiking, biking and exploring. Walking westward towards the mountains along Cheyenne Blvd, is a lovely coffee shop, a nice place to stop for a capuccino or mocha before continuing on into Cheyenne Canyon Park and the Starsmore Discovery center (an educational nature center, great for children of all ages), with miles of hikes along Cheyenne Creek. If you drive into the canyon, the beauty will astound you! Seven Falls and Helen Hunt Falls are located right down the road a bit deeper into Cheyenne Canyon and both are incredibly beautiful For a shot of old world elegance, walk to the five star Broadmoor hotel, an historic resort that is a wonderful place to go for a drink or a meal or just to walk around the gorgeous grounds! (pups welcome on the grounds)

We are 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 10 minutes away with a fantastic visitor's center. Downtown Colorado Springs is just a hop, skip and jump away, as well... The Air Force Academy is about 25 minutes north of us, and Colorado College is about 10 minutes away in the downtown area. The Olympic Training Center is east of us and less than a fifteen minute drive.

Bear Creek Dog Park and Bear Creek Nature Center are less than 10 minutes down the road, and are wonderful places to take the kids! There is also a beautiful zoo less than 10 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 hot springs, exploring Cave of the Winds, and visiting the Cliff-dwelling museum, all great entertainment for kids.

This property has parking for up to four cars and can also accommodate a medium sized RV. The driveway is up a hill and is a dirt road (only about 75 feet or so), so if you are in your RV, you might want to be careful when pulling up...

Cancelling within 30 days of arrival date is non-refundable unless we are able to re-book those days.
We are not responsible for cancellations due to acts of nature but will reschedule you for another future visit. There is a $50.00 processing fee for any cancellations.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About the owner: Pardon the corny photo from X-Mas 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 where-ever we can, and they love taking long hikes with us around the Cheyenne Canyon 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 18 years. We love it here! (You will too!)

                  Why the Owner Chose Colorado Springs:
                  We purchased this wonderful property because we live 3 blocks away and wanted to share our love for Cheyenne Canyon with others... It is a country getaway right in the city. We had fallen in love with Cheyenne Canyon park and its miles and miles of hiking and biking trails and when this property came up for sale, we couldn't resist!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  This canyon is surrounded by open spaces. 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 love the proximity to all that Colorado Springs, Old Colorado City and Manitou have to offer, yet feel as though we are living in a mountain getaway, miles from civilization!
