We are located along the northern edge of Colorado’s El Paso County, between Denver and Colorado Springs, only 15 minutes from the Air Force Academy in a community called Bent Tree. We’re at an elevation of 7500 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. Denver and Colorado Springs are both short drives from Bent Tree, making this an ideal rural setting with easy access to metropolitan amenities. The local town of Monument, just ten minutes away to the west, serves as a very convenient base for local shopping, dining and recreational opportunities. Bent Tree and the surrounding communities offer guests enjoyable recreational hiking, walking, and biking paths with spectacular views of the Rocky Mountains and Pikes Peak.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: My husband and I both attended the Air Force Academy and have made this area our home since 1991. We raised our four children here and still make this our primary home. We mostly rent to families attending events at the Air Force Academy and to be able to finance our travel habit!

Why the Owner Chose Monument, CO, USA:
Peace and privacy, yet close to town with convenient highway access to both Colorado Springs and Denver.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Large rooms to accommodate families with plenty of space to find a quiet space to read or nap. The amazing two story entry and living room make this property ideal for entertaining, but the outdoor living space is what really sold us on this property!
