About the property

4 Bedrooms + pull outs, 4 Baths, Sleeps 12, plenty of floor space for extras

This spacious 5,300 sq ft home, built in 1981, sits on 6.3 acres among the majestic Ponderosa pines and Blue Spruce of the Black Forest of northern Colorado Springs. It boasts a balcony in the front looking out into the woods with enough seating for 12 and a porch on the back. Only 50 yards off the back porch, is Fox Run Regional Park which has two ponds, a gazebo, large meadows for playing sports, two playground areas, two trails through the woods for hiking, and a picturesque view of Pikes Peak. You are sure to be comfortable in one of the four bedrooms, the well-lit living room or the lower floor family room.

Your vacation home is situated in the peaceful woods, yet is only 2 miles off of I-25 and gives you the amenities of a large grocery store, Wal-Mart, Bass Pro Shop, and a plethora of eateries five minutes away both West and South of the property. This up-scale home is ideal for attending Academy events or for exploring other area attractions including Garden of the Gods, Seven Falls, Cave of the Winds, Focus on the Family Visitor Center, and other wonderful Colorado Springs and Denver area attractions.

We would love for you to be our guest.

About Pat & Lisa DiPaola

We have been married for 37 wonderful years and God has blessed us with four amazing children.

Pat & Lisa DiPaola purchased this chateau / country house in 1999

Why Pat & Lisa DiPaola chose South Central

We purchased this home so we could have enough room to spread out without bumping into our neighbors. The treed 600' front yard provides complete privacy from the road below. We loved the open floor plan of a passive solar house, the proximity to Fox Run Regional Park, and the quick access to so many things. We love it here and we think you will enjoy it too!

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Excellent location for participating in Air Force Academy activities such as USAFA Graduation and USAFA Parents Weekend.

Less that 2 hour drive to Summit county ski and summer recreation areas; Breckenridge, Keystone, Winter Park, Copper, Vail, Beaver Creek. Aspen, and A-Basin.

Wonderful place for family

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family, 9 total, traveled to CO to spend Christmas with our parents/ in-laws who live here. As there are so many of us we needed a place to stay close to them where we could spread out. This home was wonderful. The multiple living spaces gave us time together and time to spread out and relax. We saw coyotes, deer, birds and squirrels as we enjoyed our morning tea. The kitchen was well equipped and we enjoyed family meals together. Our parents came from their home to visit and enjoyed the space with us. It was great for our lab who enjoyed being able to come with us. Thank you for letting us enjoy your beautiful, tranquil home.

Great place for family to get away

  • 5 of 5

Great place for family members to gather and still be able to have space for separate activities. In the woods in a quiet area yet only a couple miles from a large King Soopers grocery and other stores. The house was adequately furnished and met all our needs.

Perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything – – space, functionality, access to all that The Springs has to offer, acres and acres of woods for the kids and dogs to run around and explore.

Owners were great, and we felt like we were right at home. My nine and seven year old asked me if we could move there, they loved it so much!

Thanks for a wonderful vacation experience!

Very nice, big and clean home. Very impressed with everything overall!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived and immediately noticed the size and scope of the property. We were pleasantly surprised that the home was larger than we expected and also that the outside landscaping was well cared for. My first impression was that this was a real home and not just an average rental house. I did not meet the owners since I showed up late but my sister told me how polite and welcoming they were. My group and I had no complaints at all. The house was perfect and comfortable. I would recommend this property to anyone looking to visit the Colorado Springs/Denver area.

We absolutely loved the house, area and Pat & Lisa. We will definitely return and recommend this property to anyone, especially if you have a large family like we do. Everyone fit perfectly. Staying here made our nieces wedding even more perfect! If you are considering this property, DO NOT hesitate to rent it, it is absolutely amazing.
