New in 2008, this 6000 square foot estate home is sited on three acres in the Colorado Rocky Mountain foothills, and has a 360 degree view from its many panorama windows. Raspberry Mountain, Mount Herman, and Elephant Rock are among the sights. Deer and foxes meander through the property's fields and woods. The neighborhood is very quiet, and all the neighbors have custom houses on at least 2.5 acres.
The huge upstairs master suite has a gas fireplace, his and her sinks, walk in closet, and a two person jetted corner window tub. A recumbent bike is placed in the bedrooms turret, so one can overlook the eastern vistas while exercising. A second master is on the main level. There are two other spacious upstairs bedrooms.
Downstairs, oak floors cover the living room, formal dining, family room, eating area, and kitchen. The spacious family room, open to the kitchen and bay window breakfast area, has a raised stone wood burning fireplace. The living room features a vaulted ceiling with wooden beams and great mountain views out the huge windows. The formal dining room seats eight. The gourmet kitchen has slab granite counter tops and an island with all new stainless steel appliances, including two stoves. Most of the furniture is also new. It has a three car garage, large deck with a gas grill, and unfinished walkout basement.
Restaurants, grocery stores and shops are five minutes away, and the Air Force Academy is a 10 minute drive. Pike National Forest and Monument Preserve are within walking distance; both have many hiking, biking, and horse trails.
As our reviews demonstrate, there are many 'must-do' activities nearby, including visiting the U.S. Air Force Academy and Garden of the Gods (both free), and returning to the house after your day's activities should be very relaxing.
The house was wonderful, But even better where the owners, We had a small Issue with a personal matter and these people where just wonderful ! We have rented many different homes in the past 25 years. This was one of the best!!
I chose this home based on past reviews and was not disappointed. What a beautiful home. We felt like we were staying in a 5 star hotel! The owners were wonderful to work with and it was a pleasure renting from them. There were 5 of us on this trip and we never felt crowded. Having a garage for the cool evenings and rainy days was a plus! All the beds were perfectly comfortable and the kitchen was amazingly equipped. We saw the sights and will remember this trip for years.
Nine family members from age 2 to 60 enjoyed this beautifully decorated home with ample space, comfortable beds, gorgeous view, well-supplied kitchen, wi-fi and CLEANLINESS. Supplies were readily available for dishwashing, cooking, laundry & bathing. We segwayed in Garden of Gods, golfed, white-water rafted, shopped & visted the local sites of CO Springs & Manitou Springs. Owners were very accomodating. We highly recommend staying here!
My Family stayed at this property June/July 2014. We had a range of ages down to a 2 year old. The welcome feeling of the home was present from just a few steps inside the home. There was amble space for everyone & beautiful views. The kitchen was well appointed with room to fix a meal for 8+ people. We ate outside on the lovely deck every meal we could, enjoying the great weather, and views. The home was private, quiet, well equipped and above all CLEAN! Bedrooms were large and beds comfortable. The laundry room came in handy and was used more than we would have ever thought. Every single person had a great experience and enjoyed their time. The local grocery stores had great selections with a specialty store much like a Sprouts. There were also some good dining out choices nearby. The commute to Denver or the Springs was easy and took no time at all. All in all this home delivered everything that was advertised and then some! We would all happily stay here again.
As a side note, but very important - the owners were easy to work with and ensured we knew what was needed on their end. The communication from them was quick and thorough. It was obvious they cared about our experience with them - and that was greatly appreciated.
We brought our large family from Florida - we have everything from preschoolers to older teenagers - and we had an absolutely fabulous time. This house has plenty of room - bedrooms & bathrooms are large, kitchen is very well-equipped, and huge living spaces give everyone good opportunity to spread out. Internet is super-fast, just like at home. Location is perfect - we enjoyed Pike's Peak, the Air Force Academy, the Olympic Training Center, and Garden of the Gods. Our kids played for literally hours at the Garden of the Gods (we don't have rocks like that in Florida). We mostly ate at home and cooked out on the grill. The Safeway grocery store in Monument as well as the WalMart (15 minutes away) were perfect for us. We did get pizza at Borriello Brothers which is right near the house, and we worked out at Anytime Fitness which is also very close. The property owners are extra-nice and really want you to enjoy your stay. We had high expectations, but those expectations were definitely exceeded.
We stayed in this gorgeous yet comfortable home for a long weekend in October. It was so clean, and we found everything we needed there...extra blankets, pillows, a very well-stocked kitchen. The quality of the home and it's furnishing is top-notch! My four daughters enjoyed exploring the large yard - they searched for bugs, sticks, rocks. My husband and I enjoyed the privacy that this home lot provided, but we were still very close to all the things Monument/Colorado Springs had to offer. The surrounding scenery is beautiful. One evening we saw a fox run across the field in back. This home exceeded all expectations. We loved our time here and can't wait to come again!
