Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: We are Lydia & Dick Bruce, owners of this lovely home, which we have enjoyed for 12 years and now wish to share with anyone who wishes to have their lives enriched by the lively, beautiful experience of spending time in historic Colorado Springs & the surrounding areas. A job change brought us here from South Carolina and we now wish to explore and experience some of the wonders of Arizona's Sonoman Desert, Grand Canyon, & Lake Mead, etc. Please be our guests and enjoy!

Why the Owner Chose Briargate, Colorado Springs, CO, USA:
We had traveled to Colorado for years to snow ski the world famous ski resorts, but never dreamed we would have a chance to live here one day. When the job opportunity came up, we quickly moved first to the mountains nearby and, after 2 years, decided we were ready to enjoy the city life. It took us a year to find a home and development with world class views in an upscale area that we would enjoy, and we now pass along some of that experience to you to enjoy!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We fell in love with our home the first minute we saw the glorious views from every room on the back side of the home. The layout of the home appealed to us tremendously with its 10 foot ceilings throughout and bright sunny rooms. The best part, though, is watching the sun set from the home or deck, in a rainbow of beautiful colors over the mountains, and turning them briefly into those same blues, purples, reds, pinks & oranges. The neighbors are ultra friendly and so welcoming and ready to say hello!
