Property description

Location, views, and accommodations that will not disappoint! 5,000+ sq. foot home that is an entertainer’s dream! Luxury kitchen with multiple granite countertop and serving areas, deluxe refrigerator, separate freezer, double ovens, 6 burner Viking gas range, and twin sinks. Eating area plus separate formal dining room adjoining a great room with massive brick fireplace, vaulted ceiling, flat screen TV, Blu-ray, sound system, and a wall of windows facing the mountains.
Walk out of the kitchen, dining room, great room, or master bedroom onto a 600+ sq ft deck with multiple seating areas, a gas and charcoal grill and hot tub; all with the same uninterrupted view of fields, stream, and mountains. Daily farm fresh eggs delivered (when the chickens are laying) and fresh herbs to pick (when in season).
All bedrooms located on north wing and are separated from hosting areas by slide-out door and hallway. Large master bedroom with connected bathroom complete with twin sinks, shower, and Jacuzzi tub. Jack-n-Jill bedrooms, one with king size bed and one with queen bed, are connected by a full bathroom. The fourth bedroom has a private full bathroom. The basement is a family room with second entertainment center, a built in “kid’s barn”, and couch that makes into a bed for additional sleeping accommodation.
Very close to the Academy, just beyond the survival training area. Cadet families preferred!

Car: Necessary

Country living, next to it all! You can get away from the hustle and still be mere minutes away from everything. Nestled in the middle of a 200+ acre working ranch (Note: the map only shows the location of the mailbox; the house is situated at the end of a 1 mile private drive). Enjoy lounging, barbequing, hiking, cross country skiing, and sledding! Then, get in your car and within 15 minutes enjoy stores, restaurants, the Santa Fe trail, the National Forest trail system, ... and the Air Force Academy! Within 30 minutes you can be at several shopping malls, a major outlet mall, several theatres, Garden of the Gods, and most other Colorado Springs area attractions.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: My husband and I dreamed of the day we could raise our children in the life we grew up in ... down on the farm. Now our four youngsters spend their days playing in the creek, on the rope swing, or with pet chickens/dogs/cats (more to come when we can get the barn built). We want to share the experience of this place with you, especially for those of you coming in to celebrate a special event with your cadet.

Why the Owner Chose Monument, CO, USA:
By the time guests arrive at our front porch, they don't need any explanation; this property offers great Colorado views, full privacy, and spacious accommodations. It lets us commune with nature from our back door, but is still close enough to quickly get to anywhere we want to go.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Farm life close to the city and area attractions! Backs to mountains and a stream...it doesn't get any better than that!
