This very unique home has THREE OPTIONS!
Most of the year, the spacious (2,500sqft) Lower Walkout Level is available while homeowners reside on the upper level. It sleeps 13 people.
For SPECIAL WEEKS of the year (AFA Graduation, July 4th, and other 7 day rentals on request), the whole home (5,700 sqft) is available for up to 15 guests. It includes the lower level and the main level. Both levels have magnificent views, spacious living areas, and are wonderfully appointed. The studio apartment is not included with this option - but could be added bringing the total to 19 guests.
This newly added industrial themed studio apartment (1,000 sqft) under the garage sleeps 4 people. It is available for extra large groups when combined with the other rentals or can be rented separately.
This new and luxurious Tuscan home provides spectacular views overlooking the city of Colorado Springs, the Front Range, and the mountains. Located on the northwest side of Colorado Springs, south of the Air Force Academy in a safe and quiet neighborhood, this beautiful home is near Flying W Ranch (working to reopen), Glen Eyrie Castle, and Garden of the Gods Park. Old Colorado City, the Cog Rail to Pikes Peak, and the Manitou incline are also nearby.
Option One: The “Lower Walkout Level” comfortably accommodates up to 13 people with its own living/kitchen great room. The kitchen is fully stocked (large and small appliances), has a walk-in pantry, and an island with 2 stools. The leather couches are perfect for relaxing, conversing, or watching the large screen Smart TV hooked up with a DVD player and a PlayStation 3 (just bring your own games).
This level has 4 large lovely bedrooms. The first has a castle mural painted in the round turret near a comfortable king size bed. The Master bedroom has a massive king size bed and its own dressing table. A third bedroom features a queen bed and a double/single bunk bed, while the fourth bedroom has a queen bed, a trundle with two twin beds, and a desk for laptops. Each bedroom has its own roomy closet.
The two full bathrooms have double vanities and Tuscan style rain shower/bathtubs. When you need a break or want some entertainment, there's a separate game room with a high quality Ping-Pong or Pool table. A front loading high efficiency stacked washer and dryer are available as well. The "Lower Walkout Level" has about 2,400 sqft of living space.
You'll love living outside too on our large fully covered arched patio with a propane grill and outdoor seating from which to take in the morning sunrise or the twinkling river of city lights at night. Our neighborhood deer have been known to visit and pose for photos right there in front of the stone wall!
Option Two: The whole house includes the lower level just described and the main level where owners usually reside, and sleeps 15 guests. You'll step into the travertine marble entryway with exquisite marble columns opening to a great room featuring a floor to ceiling stone gas fireplace. It’s cozy and comfortable for both conversation or enjoying the large screen smart TV. A dream kitchen beckons and has everything needed for cooking up memorable meals. The professional series stove has large and small ovens, and a griddle as well as the 4 large burners. Take advantage of the ample counter space and the elevated center island. Watch the sunrise or see the mountain shadows slide across the city from the dining nook furnished with a unique table & chairs all hand painted by the artist/owner.
The master retreat is tastefully filled with an antique bedroom set and has a private sitting room in the adjoining round turret for those treasured “tete a tetes”! More travertine awaits you in the luxurious master bath with a large whirlpool tub and a steamy rain shower. There's a double sink vanity and private toilet area.
On this main level, there’s also an office/laundry room, a powder room, and an amazing partially covered deck with wrought iron railings, a professional TEC Thermal IR Grill, and comfortable seating from which to admire the mesmerizing view spread out before your eyes. With binoculars, we’ve observed Big Horn sheep, lynx, and foxes lounging and frolicking on the foothills. Plenty of deer, finches, magpies, and other birds share our surroundings as well as the more elusive eagles and falcons.
A large bonus room in an upstairs tower makes a good retreat for playing games, doing puzzles or crafts. Through an ornate wrought iron door, you can step out on our “Juliet” balcony for a bird’s eye view of the landscape.
Option Three: An industrial themed studio apartment under the garage sleeps 4 people. This new and fun space features concrete ceilings, half stone walls, and custom Edison bulb light fixtures. It's light and open, welcoming and comfortable. There's a king wall bed that's easily raised and lowered. Heavy privacy curtains can be drawn around it at night. A daybed with a pop-up trundle sleeps 2 more people.
The bathroom has a walk-in shower, double sink vanity, private toilet, and a closet.
The kitchen area has a microwave/convection oven, a 2 burner induction stovetop, a large refrigerator, dishwasher, and a butcher block island. The seating area is elevated to maximize the great views from the windows.
A large screen Smart TV with a blue ray player are in the comfortable living area along with a long desk and rolling chair. Through a sliding barn door is a small room with a Precor treadmill from which you can watch TV as well. This unit has a laundry closet and a walk-in pantry.
While being totally private with its own wheelchair friendly entrance, it can adjoin the lower level through a lockable door.
All three options will make your time in Colorado Springs relaxing and memorable.
