Nestled in the mountains behind Pikes Peak in a treed residential area, this 4 bedroom 2 bathroom home sits on 1.6 acres and offers a secluded get away from the busyness of everyday life while still being conveniently located near countless activities and attractions. Sit on the wrap around deck and watch the deer graze or visit the many activities nearby like The Wolf and Wildlife Center, just 2 minutes away. Also nearby are the Florissant Fossil Beds, Mueller State Park (hiking), 11 Mile State Park (Lake & River Fishing), Cripple Creek (Gambling and historical sites), Woodland Park (shopping/dining), Historical Manitou Springs (shopping), Manitou Cliff Dwellings, Cave of the Winds and Pikes Peak, or visit Santa's Workshop at the base of Pikes Peak, to name just a few. Colorado Springs has tons to offer with Garden of the Gods, The Air Force Academy, Old Colorado City, the Olympic Training Center and Red Rock Canyon not to mention restaurants, malls and bike trails. All of these activities are less than 50 minutes away from this home that feels like a mountain escape. If you want to go west you can find various historical mountain towns, including Fairplay (with a re-created ghost town), Buena Vista (with hot springs and horseback riding), Salida (a beautiful town great for shopping and rafting), and Breckenridge (skiing). Whether you want to stay close to home and just enjoy an escape from a frantic schedule or you're looking for adventure, you'll find it here.
Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: My wife, five kids and I love Colorado and especially enjoy hiking and exploring new places.
Why the Owner Chose Florissant, CO, USA:
I grew up coming to this part of Colorado. I spent many summer nights camping in 11 mile canyon, about 15 minutes from Silent Creek. I've always loved coming to the mountains to enjoy the outdoors. Then, eleven years ago, my wife and I decided to move up to this beautiful area, making it our home year-round. Now we're excited to turn it in to a vacation rental for others to enjoy.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
One of the things we fell in love with was the wildlife. We have had up to 20 deer grazing on the property and have even listened to the howls of animals at night or seen a black bear lumbering through the trees below our home. We also love the peaceful, star-filled nights as we sit out on our deck talking. When the sun goes down, often the only things we hear are the wind and an occassional fox looking for food. Not only did we fall in love with the nature up here, but we love our home. We're far enough out that it really feels like a Colorado mountain escape, but close enough to fun outdoor activities.
