This cozy, 4-bedroom, 2 bath home is located in a quiet, pleasant residential neighborhood in Colorado Springs, yet with some of the area’s most popular attractions practically in its backyard. It offers spectacular mountain views right from the living room window. Outdoor space behind the home provides several seating areas for different flavors of fresh-air entertainment, from lively family meals to quiet evenings around the firepit. It’s comfortable, convenient, and immaculately maintained.
This adorable home has a hint of mid-century modern curb appeal. The driveway to the side of the house is large enough to accommodate several vehicles. Step between two curved stone retaining walls cradling tasteful landscaping and ascend a short flight of steps to the front door. Welcome! Step into the open concept main level and take a deep breath – you’re home (away from home)! Right away, you’ll be tempted to sink into the U-shaped, family-sized sofa with its plump pillows and snuggly throw blankets. Then your eyes will be drawn to the wide window positioned just above the sofa, offering a stunning view of the Rockies. There’s a TV for your streaming services in the corner for restful entertainment after a day of sightseeing or exploring the great outdoors.
Moving deeper into the space, you’ll find a homey, open eat-in kitchen with a dining table for four against a backdrop of coffee-colored cabinetry, granite countertops and a suite of full-size, stainless steel appliances for easy meal prep, including a refrigerator/freezer, range, and microwave. Also provided for your convenience are a coffee maker, cooking utensils, a stocked spice rack, and a full set of chef’s knives.
All four bedrooms in the home have been decorated in serene, light colors and tastefully furnished. On the main level, two bedrooms each provide a queen bed, dresser, and closet. One of these bedrooms features a doggie door to the gated dog run on the right side of the home. Also on this level, a three-piece bath includes a shower/tub combo with a glass door enclosure.
A lower level provides even more living space, allowing this home to comfortably accommodate groups of up to 8. Here you’ll find an additional two bedrooms and a second living area, including a sofa with a built-in chaise for stretching out and watching the wide-screen TV with your streaming apps. This is a great place for kids to entertain themselves with our various board games while the grown-ups enjoy their time together upstairs.
One lower-level bedroom provides a queen bed, dresser and closet. In the other, you’ll find a trundle daybed, providing sleep space for two. This room also includes a desk for working, gaming, or catching up on email. A bathroom with a shower stall also serves this level, as does a laundry room with full-size washer and dryer, iron and ironing board, and a dog kennel if you need it.
Behind the home, you’ll find the land climbing upward, unsurprisingly, on a gentle slope. At the highest point, a bench for two overlooks the Rocky Mountains – a perfect spot for serene, quality time alone or with a loved one. Just beyond our fence line is when you can catch a glimpse of local wildlife strolling by! Lower, you’ll find a cluster of seating around a fire pit, inviting you to gather and enjoy the mountain air even on crisp evenings. Just outside the home’s back door, you’ll find a patio with an elongated umbrella dining table encircled by chairs, just right for sharing meals outdoors.
Although the home doesn't have central AC we do provide a portable AC unit in the living room during the warmer months to keep the home cool. Our evenings are generally cool in the summer time, simply opening the windows will provide natural coolness.
Hotel-grade linens are professionally laundered after every visit. This home is managed by a local vacation rental specialist, and there’s a sense of quality and care that’s worthy of your 5-star review.
