Property description

AFA Graduation 2017 and 2018 booked.

Welcome to beautiful Colorado! We invite you to take in the exceptional (unobstructed) Rocky Mountain views and the cityscape of Northern Colorado Springs that our home has to offer. There are many charming and decorative rooms with an array of colors, which flow throughout. You will find the atmosphere to be warm, peaceful and relaxing.

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need. Start your morning with a cup of coffee, as well as reading a good book in the spectacular “view room" observing the gorgeous mountains. They are stunning! Next, enjoy breakfast on the large (500 sq. ft.) back deck while taking in the fresh Colorado air and breathtaking views. After breakfast you may want to go to the "Garden of the Gods" park, which is only thirteen miles away. Head back to the house for a barbecue lunch on the deck. A grill, picnic table and chairs are available to you. The deck includes a water fountain, which adds to the outdoor ambiance. Included in our backyard is a quarter size basketball court and sandbox for your convenience. Work off your lunch by taking a walk to the neighborhood pond.

Before dinner take a short drive to the mountainside. The city views get better the higher up you go. Then enjoy a nice meal at our charming and formal dining room table. Afterwards move to the deck for coffee and dessert. As dusk settles and the sun drops behind the mountains, giving way to jaw dropping sights, light the fire pit and take in dazzling city night lights. Wind up your evening with a movie and popcorn in our family room. Take advantage of the brick gas fireplace. Or relax by soaking in the master suite garden tub.

Complete your day with a restful night sleep in one of the four comfortable bedrooms. We pride ourselves in providing an exceptionally clean environment; therefore you will receive superb cleanliness. We use natural/organic hand soap in all bathrooms and the kitchen.

VRBO has now provided a great platform to showcase our home, which gives us an opportunity to share our house with many others looking for a quiet, relaxing vacation getaway.

We invite you to experience our warm and lovely house with the magnificent view. It is uniquely situated on a hill in a quiet (family oriented) neighborhood. Within a short drive are plenty of restaurants, grocery stores, shopping centers and movie theaters. The Air Force Academy (south gate) is only 2.5 miles from here. We believe you will be taken in by the beautiful mountain views and our lovely, decorative, house.

Thank you for viewing our home!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: I was born and raised in Texas, and eventually made my way to California where I met my husband. He is native San Diegan who said would never leave San Diego. After taking a road trip to CO, his heart changed. We left the beaches for the beautiful Colorado Rockies. We enjoy hiking, traveling, cooking, reading, road trips, and walks. We have been involved in many outreaches in San Diego and in the Springs. We enjoy what we do and love the opportunity of meeting people from all over the nation.

Why the Owner Chose Briargate, Colorado Springs, CO, USA:
We searched for a home that would "WOW" us. We came across this house, when our realtor led us to the back deck, he said, “You will want to see this!” Stepping out into the deck, our jaws dropped. The view was magnificent! It was the "wow" house we had prayed for. The house needed some TLC, but as the agent said, "This is a million dollar view. You can always change the look of a home, but you can never change the view.” That's when we knew God had answered our prayer, we found our home!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our house is positioned on a hill within a peaceful, safe, quiet and friendly area. The views of Pikes Peak Mountain Range are spectacular! There are walking paths which connect throughout surrounding neighborhoods and hiking trails are a short drive away. You will experience beautiful sunsets and have a new appreciation for the song “America the Beautiful,” written by Katherine Bates in 1893. She was inspired to write this poem, which later became a song because of Pikes Peak penetrating beauty. The lyrics, “Purple Mountain Majesty,” will have a whole new meaning to those who visit. Because of the love and pride by which we decorated our home, we hope it is at the top of your seasonal rental list.
