Built in 2010 this family-owned custom home is located on the edge of the Black Forest between Colorado Springs and Monument, Colorado in a sub-division of 2 ½ to 5-acre lots. This 6,000 sq. ft. house is set back from the road on just under12 acres. The lot is half treed and half open prairie with view of the Continental Divide. There’s parking for 10 cars, a 7-person HOT TUB outdoor basketball hoop, fire pit, trampoline, playground-quality swing-set and teeter-totter, soccer goals, zip line, tree house/writing room, and plenty of space to send the kids outside without worrying about traffic.
The interior is designed to feel like a family farmhouse with all the amenities. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and a play area with an array of toys, a miniature kitchen, and a tire swing. The main level includes a music room with a Yamaha upright piano, an art room, powder bath, laundry and locker area, a wood-burning fireplace, open kitchen/dining/living room, master suite, front and back decks with sitting areas, and a grilling area. The lower level features a walk-out to the back yard, a guest suite, 1 bath, TV den, ping pong table, treadmill and rec area.
You may have no desire to leave the house once you’re here but if you must grocery, shopping, and Starbucks are 10 minutes away. The Air Force Academy (10 mins), Garden of the Gods, (20 mins), Pikes Peak Railway and Manitou Incline (30 mins), and The Broadmoor Hotel (30 mins) are must-see attractions for Colorado.
