Country living, next to it all! You can get away from the hustle and still be mere minutes away from everything. Nestled in the middle of a 200+ acre working ranch (Note: the map only shows the location of the mailbox; the house is situated at the end of a 1 mile private drive). Enjoy lounging, barbequing, hiking, cross country skiing, and sledding! Then, get in your car and within 15 minutes enjoy stores, restaurants, the Santa Fe trail, the National Forest trail system, ... and the Air Force Academy! Within 30 minutes you can be at several shopping malls, a major outlet mall, several theatres, Garden of the Gods, and most other Colorado Springs area attractions.
Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: My husband and I dreamed of the day we could raise our children in the life we grew up in ... down on the farm. Now our four youngsters spend their days playing in the creek, on the rope swing, or with pet chickens/dogs/cats (more to come when we can get the barn built). We want to share the experience of this place with you, especially for those of you coming in to celebrate a special event with your cadet.
Why the Owner Chose Colorado Springs: By the time guests arrive at our front porch, they don't need any explanation; this property offers great Colorado views, full privacy, and spacious accommodations. It lets us commune with nature from our back door, but is still close enough to quickly get to anywhere we want to go.
The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse: Farm life close to the city and area attractions! Backs to mountains and a stream...it doesn't get any better than that!
