Since 2019, there have been some major changes to the MLS map for the Pikes Peak region.  Essentially, there are no areas that are specifically demarcated for the northeast or for that matter, for any other designated areas for El Paso County.

So… take a look at this 2:00 minute video.  It covers major portions of the northeast, as well as some views of Pine Creek, Cordera and the Malls at Briargate.  Practically from any location in the northeast of Colorado Springs, you will enjoy seeing Pikes Peak, as well as the contiguous, foothill mountains.

Approximately 25 square miles boast of Colorado suburban living in this part of town.  The average elevation is around 6,500 feet.  Though the northeast has been around since the 70’s, new things are happening there.  There are abundant housing options at various price points, 58 schools in School District 11, University Village development, new shopping, new restaurants, and more movie theatres are some of the amenities about this growing area.

As you move more central on the northeast side of town, you can’t really miss the expansive growth of the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs.  The university is slated to become larger than the Boulder campus of the University of Colorado.  Continued growth, residential investment opportunity, commercial development and simply, electricity flows among the students and neighborhoods of this area just east of I-25.

Enjoy the video and perhaps you might become part of the neighborhoods of the northeast of Colorado Springs. Feel free to contact Selley Group Real Estate, LLC, 719-598-5101, if you have additional questions.

I’ve heard this said from some longtime builders, “whenever you can stop and listen to the hammers banging, then you know the economy is doing well…” Well… the hammers have been working on and off since 2004 at the master planned community of Wolf Ranch, which is another residential collective located in the northeast section of Colorado Springs.

Some of the builders who have built some wonderful homes (different styles of course) in Wolf Ranch include the following: Challenger Homes, Covington Homes, David Weekly Homes, JM Weston Homes, Classic Homes, Creekstone Homes, Gray Homes and Vanguard Homes.  I apologize to any homebuilder who I have accidently left off this list.

By watching this video clip, you will notice plenty of open space (300 acres), over 10 miles of trails, a beautiful Recreation Center with pool, an amphitheater, and what I find intriguing is an elaborate Dog Park. 

Colorado Springs is noted for being the #1 Pet-Friendly City in the United States, and Wolf Ranch has certainly made accommodations for man’s best friend.  The WOOF Ranch Dog Park is newly located to the left of the Recreation Center.

The Dog Park is natural landscaping for both small and large dogs.  In fact, they have their separate areas.  There is also an agility section with 9 pieces of equipment, 6 seating benches, dog trash stations and a leash dock.

We have also presented by this video film a nearby hospital and the Promenade Shops at Briargate.

New areas of Wolf Ranch continue to open up.  Please refer to www.wolf-ranch.com to keep updated about building options and any new announcements.

Skyway is really one of the “original” neighborhoods of Colorado Springs, which is located in the southwest side of the city and practically sits at the base of Cheyenne Mountain.  Sometimes “original” doesn’t have to mean older and outlived.  Sometimes “original” brings beauty and value and parts of it can’t really be duplicated. That’s a great description for Skyway Park.

Measuring 1.819 square miles with a population of around 2,500 for the Skyway area, this particular neighborhood is simply beautiful.  Although charming is usually a great adjective to assign to many neighborhoods, it doesn’t do justice to the maturity and value of this magnificent area.

Mature spruce and pine trees stand tall amongst the neighborhood yards, and there is a connecting link from family living in these well-crafted homes to the adjacent Bear Creek Regional Park and the Bear Creek Dog Park. Recreation abounds for many youth leagues at these parks.

Statistically speaking, the percentage of family households for Skyway is around 55%, which is a little higher than other parts of Colorado Springs.  And the housing prices are also slightly higher than what’s found with other neighborhoods throughout other sectors of Colorado Springs. 

From a personal experience, having this video filmed early in the morning afforded me the opportunity to see the eloquent sunrise to beam against Cheyenne Mountain.  My breath was taken away when watching the colors against Cheyenne Mountain turn from purple to plum to green to orange and finally, to its normal brownish color. It was an absolutely beautiful experience to watch the cadence of light to dance against the foothills.  This is the essence of Colorado beauty! Don’t hesitate to connect with me if you’re allured to living in the Skyway neighborhoods.  Cherise Selley, Broker/Owner of Selley Group Real Estate, LLC, 719-598-5101.

The population growth projections for Colorado Springs (El Paso County) over the next decade are staggeringly high.  In fact, Colorado Springs, Monument and the surrounding areas are predicted to grow larger in population than Denver over the next few decades.  People are flocking here for various reasons, but one particular thread about the alluring draw to Colorado Springs involves its incredible beauty.

And the developers of the Forest Lakes master planned development must of thought about this when developing a luxury residential community just north of the Air Force Academy on the west side I-25.

Over 450 acres of sprawling landscape is being filled with newly-built homes, which surrounds two community lakes.  For those who miss the water, Forest Lakes offers some basic fun on the lake, such as Paddle boarding or simply resting beside the shore to enjoy the beauty of the glistening water against the magnificence of the mountain range.  This view will surely take your breath away…

What Coloradoan recreational enthusiasts enjoy is the interconnecting system of public and private trails of Forest Lake, as well as a neighborhood park and outdoor amphitheater.

When needing to travel the highway system, Forest Lakes is perfectly situated between Colorado Springs and Castle Rock, Colorado.  Easy access, reasonable time to get to different cultural events in either Colorado Springs and/or Denver are within 30 to 40 minutes of Forest Lakes. For more information about Forest Lakes or any other properties in northern part of El Paso County, please do not hesitate to contact me, Cherise Selley, Broker/Owner of Selley Group Real Estate, LLC at 719-598-5101 for assistance.

From this video clip your eye probably focused on the obvious.  East Powers provides all kinds of affordable housing on the eastern edge of Colorado Springs, as well as providing Colorado Springs’ only Hometown Shopping Experience to the thousands that live on the east side of town.

When looking over the map of East Powers, you’ll notice that there is a main road that runs north and south to connect people between the military installations, such as Peterson Air Force Base in the south direction, and in the opposite direction, northbound, towards the United States Air Force Academy.  Plans are in the works to eventually connect the Powers Corridor to I-25, which will run through the Flying Horse sector of Colorado Springs.

The popularity of East Powers is undeniable.  It is a fast-growing area for residential development, as there are plenty of options from which to choose between many Colorado Springs homebuilders.  And commercial and retail shopping centers are plentiful from which to shop.

The First & Main Town Center helps to anchor East Powers, as many who enjoy going to the movies, or going out to eat at a nice selection of restaurants, or who appreciate the convenience of all kinds of shopping – the kinds of shopping ranging from home improvement and furnishings for the home to stores that fit your Colorado outdoor recreational lifestyles.

The historic part of the Old North End of Colorado Springs isn’t simply a history lesson that is buried away in a dusty old library for safekeeping.  No… The Historic Old North End of Colorado Springs presents with storied narratives that are still active today.

Without being square dab in the epicenter of Downtown, the Old North End Neighborhood has basically been preserved to become part of the signature of branding regarding the future plans of Downtown Colorado Springs. Wait until you see our “Olympic City of Champions” really come to life over the next few years.  Some of the developmental plans are incredible, and new businesses and restaurants are popping up all over the Downtown area.

While the Old North End Neighborhoods help to protect and enhance the neighborhood streetscape and the preservation of trees, and improving safety and living conditions, the efforts to cooperate with educational institutions, such as Colorado College, cannot be overlooked.  For years, Colorado College has been intricately involved with the city and offers the kind of stability that many communities fully appreciate.

The Old North End boasts of beautiful historic homes, large yards with fully mature trees.  In fact, the trees create a canopy over the walkways, in which you feel like you’re stepping back in time where individual creativity applied to each and every home that was constructed. 

The pace of life is laid back, as you’ll observe many who are walking their dogs, or those riding their bikes, or those who are taking long walks into Downtown, or those who are working on their gardens, or those who are simply visiting other neighbors who’ve lived in the Old North End for years. 

Like many parts of Colorado Springs, the Old North End is growing with energy and excitement about all the new things that are happening.

Give me a call if you’re interested to connect with the Old North End vibe for living. Cherise Selley, Broker/Owner of Selley Group Real Estate, LLC, 719-332-4511.

Next to all of the hiking trails in the Rockrimmon neighborhoods, sometimes it feels like there are more deer than homes that sprawl against the undulating and rolling topography on the Northwest side of Colorado Springs and located on the eastside of I-25 off Woodmen Road, essentially.

WOW!!! Did you see from this video a group of deer nibbling on some grass from one of the yards of this Peregrine neighborhood?

In essence, this scene captures part of the theme of Peregrine. There is a mixture of about 1,000 well-built homes that are nestled amongst the foothills where wildlife and nature seem to pass time together in tranquil rhythm.

The Blodgett Peak territory abounds over 167 acres, consisting of massive open space, winding and hilly trails with wildlife (such as Peregrine Falcons), unusual geological rock formations, and of course, with magnificent views that make you feel like you can touch the sky. Overall, you can find “your” space to decompress from all of the stresses of life when spending time on this northwest side of Colorado Springs.

Outdoor recreation is also part of the theme for Peregrine. There are two beautiful parks, Marshall-Sprague Park and Woodmen Valley Park. And again, trails galore take you on great adventures throughout Blodgett Peak.

When a well-designed neighborhood provides upscale housing, questions about education are usually asked. Peregrine serves the District #20 Schools, which include Woodmen Roberts, Eagle View Middle School and Air Academy High School. Their track records speak for themselves…take a look onto www.asd20.org for more information.

Many homes are perched on overlooking mesas that bring the city lights into your own personal space. There are so many positive adjectives that help to describe the naturally beautiful reality of Peregrine. Enough said… Rewind the video!
