About the owner: We have lived in Colorado Springs most of our lives and enjoy all that the Colorado mountains have to offer - biking, hiking, camping, snowboarding/skiing, etc. The city itself has a lot to offer as well from the fun Downtown/Colorado College area, to funky Old Colorado City, to even more funky Manitou Springs. The new University Village area near UCCS, only 5 mins from the house, also has a lot - shopping, huge variety of restaurants (both local and chain), Trader Joe's, Costco, etc.
Why the Owner Chose Northeast Colorado Springs, Colorado Springs, CO, USA:
It's a nice house with lots of space both inside and out, lots of natural light, and in a quiet suburban neighborhood with mature landscaping, close to I-25 so easy to get almost anywhere in the city and beyond. The neighborhood has many large, open spaces with trails, lots of trees and lots of wildlife.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
So much to see close to the house ... hiking and mountain biking in Ute Valley Park or Garden of the Gods, exploring the Air Force Academy ... conveniently located near major highways to get to the mountains and their slopes, Denver attractions and sporting events, shopping, U.S. Olympic Training Center, and much more! We also love the mature landscaping, the front fountain and the fact that the house is very private even though it's in a neighborhood, with no neighbors on the back and one side of the house.
