THIS IS A NON-SMOKING PROPERTY.
Large custom home on 1 wooded acre with spectacular views of (and close access to) the red rocks and wildlife located conveniently between Denver and Colorado Springs. Our home is 45 min from DIA and 40 min from Colorado Springs Airport.
This unique home is great for those who want a quiet location for their family to enjoy or to have a romantic getaway, yet have easy access to the entire Front Range.
You will enjoy the seclusion of the property, the spacious room in the house, large comfortable beds (5 queens), 2 peaceful patios with comfortable furniture, and fun in and outside. You will see abundant wildlife (daily you will see mule deer/black squirrels/chipmunks/hummingbirds, often you will see foxes, and occasionally you will see bears/mountain lions/moose). You will enjoy the ease of preparing meals in the stunning kitchen. The horseshoe pit is popular and many guests enjoy the large screen tvs in either family room and the extensive movie collection. You and your partner will enjoy the double headed shower or the jetted tub in the master bathroom. The basement has recently been finished, adding a bedroom, bathroom, family room area with another tv and pool table, and wet bar.

We purchased this home to have a relaxing, but close, getaway from our work lives in the Denver area. We have really enjoyed the peace and beauty of this property and decided we should share it with others.
Wonderful location nestled in the woods next to Pike National Forest. The house has easy access to both Denver and Colorado Springs, yet is private and quiet.
This is a home where you are relieved of stress. We love our Gourmet kitchen. It is comfortable in the house even during the heat of summer - we usually sleep with our windows open to smell the pine. We do a lot of hiking as we can access Pike National Park from the neighborhood. There is a pond at the front of the neighborhood which we enjoy walking to - there are the largest bullfrogs we have ever seen in the pond. We love walking up to the red rocks behind our property, which is open space, and taking pictures on the rocks and in the woods. It is always exciting to see the bears and foxes wandering around. The road biking is smooth and the traffic is low.
World Famous Colorado Renaissance Festival is held 8 weekends every summer and is very close, whitewater rafting to the north and the south each approximately 1.5 hrs away, downhill skiing/snowboarding approximately 2 hrs to the north. Denver and Colorado Springs both provide many entertainment options (theme parks, water parks, cliff dwellings, museums, winery tours, etc).
