Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: Shannon moved to Colorado Springs in 1999 because of her love of the mountains and skiing! Lloyd moved to Colorado Springs in 2008 after meeting Shannon at a mutual friend's wedding, he quickly left Wisconsin to be with the love of his life (and beautiful Colorado!) We were married at the end of 2009 and decided that we would move out of the home and start our new life in a new home together. (Shannon thought Lloyd was Crazy for this! LOL) We currently reside in Colorado Springs and love all that it has to offer in it's own backyard from, hiking, biking to taking family walks in the many parks! With over 300 days of sunshine, a temperate climate and amazing views why would you not want to vacation in Colorado Springs? Be careful, you might not want to return home!!
Why the Owner Chose Colorado Springs: Shannon worked for the builder and decided to build a custom home when the sub-division was opened. She had the pick of the lots and chose one of the best, mainly because of the open space in the back yard, which feels like your own little sanctuary! Shannon and I rarely stay in hotels when we travel. We love using VRBO and always enjoy the amenities staying in a home offers. So after renting to long term renters we decided that VRBO gives us the opportunity to share this marvelous home with many more families and make their vacations that much better. We love what this city has to offer and this home is right in the middle of everything!
The Unique Benefits at this House: What's not to love about this home. First off it's spacious and open and has many custom upgrades; it feels cozy yet luxurious. The best part of the home by far, is the back yard. Whether you are relaxing in the living room looking outside or sitting on the large patio you will feel at peace. You don't even know there are neighbors when in the back yard, it's your own little slice of paradise. Plus, watching the birds, deer, squirrel, and the occasional coyote or bear is always fun! You don't even have to go far to take a hike! The back yard is city park and you can explore all over the area! The other great perk of this house is that it is centrally located. Literally walking/biking distance to University of Colorado, Colorado Springs (UCCS) and parks like well known Palmer Park. Downtown, shopping, malls, restaurants, golfing, hiking and military bases like the Air Force Academy are minutes away.
