$950,000 • 2.27 acres
This 2.27-acre property is a rare throwback to an earlier time: a home with an in-town location, paired with a large shop, on acreage with abundant space for horses, gardens, and a semi-rural lifestyle, all in a secluded setting with incredible mountain views, the convenience of city utilities (including new fiber-optic), and quick access to everything on offer in Colorado Springs. Located at a secluded cul-de-sac in a tranquil neighborhood, this fully fenced property is zoned for up to 4 horses, and was historically an orchard, a productive garden space, and an equestrian property. It's now ready to be put back in use by a new owner seeking both the amenities of town and the breathing room of a small farm property. The spacious 3-bedroom, 2-bath home boasts a wood fireplace and three levels of living space, and is move-in ready. The west deck offers a front-row view of Pikes Peak and Cheyenne Mountain, while the spacious backyard includes a sprinkler system and a gazebo (with power and lights) perfect for family gatherings and BBQs. Watch for frequent visits from deer and other wildlife. A new owner can keep up to 4 horses on the property. The northern portion of the parcel was once used as a rodeo and roping arena, and could again be put to such use. The arena offers a view of the majestic Garden of the Gods. From the property's back gate, it's less than 300 feet to the Mesa Open Space, offering trails for hiking, biking, and horseback riding. Simply ride or hike out the property's back gate and within moments, you're on the trail. Mountain views from the open space trails mirror those on the property. The 1,680 sf shop building has power, lights, a high-fiber concrete floor, and an intercom linking to the house. Add stall mats, and the shop could easily transform into a horse barn, with ample remaining space for hay storage and truck & trailer parking. Fruit trees on the parcel are still productive, and cottonwoods and evergreens populate the yard, adding to a sense of privacy and the property's decidedly "out in the country" feel.An incredible investment opportunity, this property can be further subdivided, creating options for additional homes, homesites, or townhomes.
