The Eastern edge of the Rocky Mountains is just 10 min away with hiking trails, 4X4 back roads and miles and miles of Colorado’s beautiful Rocky Mountains.

A little about the area and setting for this home: We are located along the northern edge of Colorado’s El Paso County, between Denver and Colorado Springs, only 7 minutes from the Air Force Academy in a community called Kings Deer. We’re at an elevation of 7400 feet, perched atop the Palmer Divide—one of the highest points on the Great Plains. The area boasts of spectacular views of the Rocky Mountains emerging from the Plains just to the west. And to the southwest, Pikes Peak dominates the horizon. The homes in the area have choices of properties with great views, some located on open grasslands, and some nestled among the tall ponderosa pines. Denver and Colorado Springs are both short drives from Kings Deer, making this an ideal rural setting with easy access to metropolitan amenities. The local town of Monument, just four minutes away to the west, serves as a very convenient base for local shopping, dining and recreational opportunities. Kings Deer has over seven miles of maintained trails throughout the community, offering guests enjoyable recreational hiking, walking, and biking paths with spectacular views of the Rocky Mountains and Pikes Peak.

For those golfers: Have you ever wondered how far your ball will fly at an elevation of 7400 feet? Well you can give it your best shot at the Kings Deer Golf Club. ( The Club House is only 1 ½ miles from this home and tee times are available. Yes, bring your clubs!

One of the most notable points of interest in the area is Pikes Peak. Colorado has 54 peaks that are over 14,000 feet in elevation. (Colorado’s 14ers: ) There are two peaks that have paved roads where explorers can drive all the way to the top—to over 14,000 feet: Pikes Peak and Mount Evans. Pikes Peak was deemed as “America’s Mountain” when Katharine Lee Bates wrote the words that became America The Beautiful after visiting the top of the mountain. The drive to the entrance gate of Pikes Peak Park is approximately 35 min. The drive to the top of the mountain can take as long or short as you want depending on how much time you want to spend taking in the views of the great Rocky Mountains on one side and the Great Plains on the other. If you want to try your luck at fishing there are three lakes along the drive which all sit at the base of the mountain. If you are looking for a different kind of adventure at Pikes Peak, you can take the Cog Railway to the top of Pikes Peak, beginning in Manitou Springs just 35 minutes away. Mount Evans is the other drivable 14er and its entrance is approximately 1 ½ hours away.

Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Monument, CO, USA:
We purchased this property and built here because of its central location to both Colorado Springs and the Denver area. It sits at 7400 feet in elevation in the tall ponderosa pines. The property has three springs which keeps it green all summer long. We love it here! The summer days are pleasant and the nights are cool. Sitting on the front lawn taking in the view, you get the feeling of peacefulness and quiet. This is the perfect get-away location.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
LONG-TERM RENTAL IS AVAILABLE. BLOCKED DATES WILL NOT APPLY. FOR SPECIFIC INFORMATION ON THIS PROPERTY AS A LONG-TERM RENTAL, PLEASE INQUIRE THROUGH THIS SITE AND GIVE CONTACT INFORMATION AND I WILL CALL YOU DIRECTLY TO DISCUSS. JAMES RAMSEY Everyone comments about how beautiful the setting is. We often have friends over in the summer to just hang out outside at the fire pit or out on the grass with a glass of wine. This is what it's all about. **Due to HOA restrictions, Weddings are not allowed on the property**
