Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: I am an Air Force Academy grad, retired Air Force JAG, and practice law in Colorado Springs. Originally from the east coast, I fell in love with Colorado and just can't leave. I am willing to share my home with you and trust you will treat it as your home.

Why the Owner Chose Northwest Colorado Springs, Colorado Springs, CO, USA:
Colorado Springs is a wonderful area year around. I believe you will find my home comfortable and fun. Kissing Camels is a gated golf course community with excellent security. Hiking and biking in the stunning Garden of Gods park less than one mile away. This park was recently ranked No. 1 in the country by Trip Advisor! Many other parks and recreation facilities are available. Click on my link to the virtual video tour of my house and amenities, along with many other house photos under the 'Owner Info' tab.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Home theater, four fireplaces, pool table, large open rooms, and tremendous location make this a wonderful home for a family or multiple families to enjoy. Next to Garden of Gods park, close to Air Force Academy and all local attractions. This unique home and surrounding area has much to offer. Unbeatable!
