Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: I'm in the U.S. Air Force and originally from Long Island, New York. After 10+ years in the military, I've lived in many places...but have always wanted to come live near the mountains in Colorado. After spending 4 years in the Washington, DC area, I finally had that opportunity to come to Colorado.
Why the Owner Chose East Colorado Springs, Colorado Springs, CO, USA:
I set out to purchase my first home here upon arrival in Colorado Springs, and absolutely fell in love with this home from the moment I saw it. With everything I wanted -- historic character, modern touches, open layout, and close to the heart of downtown, this unique home is my dream house.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
As an avid entertainer, I thoroughly enjoy the gourmet kitchen and dining table for 12+... but the media room is the feature that initially caught my eye, and I've hosted numerous movie nights and viewings of major sporting events here.
