Upscale living amongst the rolling terrain of the Cheyenne Mountain region, just south of the internationally-recognized Broadmoor Resort, aptly describes the area of Broadmoor Bluffs. Without doubt, there are some breath-taking views from various bluffs that afford you city and mountain views.  And the uniqueness of the swerves and curves of the plush landscape keeps you in balance with everything that surrounds you. 

There are two neighborhood parks, Oak Meadows Park and Broadmoor Bluffs Park, where you can catch that spectacular view just previously mentioned, as well as providing a recreational area for the kids to play.

The population projections for 2019 predict 41,862 people in the Broadmoor Bluffs area.  That translates into 898 people per square mile.  The number of households is 17,463, and the average income per household is above the national average at $77,889.

The Broadmoor Bluffs area consists of luxury, custom housing that is strategically placed on beautiful lots to punctuate the essence of Colorado living.  The neighborhood is specifically zoned to the highly-awarded Cheyenne Mountain School District #12. 

There is so much to do in the Southwest part of Colorado Springs.  Many visitors plan their trips to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, the Cheyenne Mountain Resort Center, and of course, to the Broadmoor Resort.  Excellent golf courses, The Country Club of Colorado and The Broadmoor Golf Club, await golfing enthusiasts.

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

On June 23, 2012, the Northwest portion (Mountain Springs) of Colorado Springs unexpectedly experienced the ravaging devastation of the Waldo Canyon Fire.  From practically every location of Colorado Springs, all who were curious to watch the unfolding fire travel down the foothills witnessed the sheer devastation of Colorado’s famed treasure, which is its rich nature that sprawls across its mountain range.  Instead of beauty, the landscape was visible with enormous smoke plumes that hid the foothills from view and filled the skies with the feeling of utter destruction.

Fast forward nearly 7 years… our video captures the evidence of life and growth and the renewed beauty of Mountain Shadows. It was estimated that 346 homes and/or structures burned down because of the fire, but quickly afterwards, the rebuilding efforts were very successful.  Mountain Shadows has been newly rebuilt and revived for several years.

Mountain Shadows mimics its name.  This region is known for its undulating topography of beauty that paints a picture of stability and hope.  Not with just its restoration of nature, but there is a reinstatement of wildlife that commonly enjoy calling the Northwest of Colorado Springs their home. Frequently, there are herds of Big Horn Sheep that graze near the Lanagan location.  And nearly everywhere throughout the Northwest neighborhoods (Mountain Shadows, Peregrine, Woodmen Valley, Pinion Valley, Oak Valley Ranch and Rockrimmon), flocks of deer are found relaxing in the yards, and rabbits are playing tag with each other, and the sounds of coyote let us know it’s night fall.

Living near the foothills offers the sensation of really living right against the mountains.  You’re able to hear the whispers of nature and wildlife alike, as well as smell the aromas of Pine trees and the blooming Spring flowers.

The Northwest offers excellent walking trails, such as Blodgett Peak and Ute Valley Park.  Traffic is relatively low.  Again, many of the residential homes are newly-built.  School District #11 is assigned to the Mountain Shadows area.  And the feeling of being on vacation is part of the lifestyle. Any further questions about becoming part of owning your residential property in Mountain Shadows, please do not hesitate to contact Selley Group Real Estate, LLC at 719-598-5101 for more information.

If you ever want to experience living in “The City Above the Clouds,” then Woodland Park is your place to reside.  When I think of Woodland Park, I can’t help but think of this community as an oxymoron, in the sense of this place being a “Booming Little Town.”  Once known as a community where the saw milling business was big, now the town has transformed into a tourist destination spot.

There are approximately 7,500 residents of Woodland Park, which is situated in Teller County.  The natural surroundings are breath taking with beauty galore.  You’ll find tall, mature spruce, pine and aspen trees that lusciously spread across the mountain range.  The air is different at higher altitudes.  Although Colorado air feels fresh and clean, the air within the City Above the Clouds seems even fresher. 

Whenever traveling to Summit County for snow skiing or Cripple Creek for gambling and fun or Deckers for camping and fishing, many travelers pass through Woodland Park for a pit stop.  And why not?  Woodland Park is the largest city in Teller County and tourism fuels its economy.  What seems to happen when visiting Woodland Park is that visitors sometimes turn into residents as they seek the higher qualities of living.  Admittedly, there’s something magical about Woodland Park as you can sense your soul unwind to rest and to think and to reboot and to live.

Woodland Park is a resort town and new businesses keep popping up all the time.  Bed & Breakfast stays, hotels, campgrounds, RV parks, tons of restaurants, shopping, the Dinosaur Center, the Shining Mountain Golf Club and many trails attract all kinds to this place.

What’s really cool about The City Above the Clouds is this… Even when snow falls in the winter the sun still shines about 300 days per year.  This allows for activity to continue amidst the beauty of Woodland Park.  Many of the residents also work in Colorado Springs and make the drive up and down the pass each day.

If you’re looking for that place where you can really get the feel of Colorado living among the beautifully undulating mountains, Woodland Park may be the place for you! Always feel free to reach out to me, Cherise Selley, Broker/Owner of Selley Group Real Estate, LLC at 719-598-5101.

You really can’t miss the obvious about Palmer Lake.  This little mountain town is surrounded by… you guessed it correctly… Palmer Lake.  And really, the lake is the center feature of this town, which abuts to the Santa Fe trail system.  Regarding the lake itself, you may enjoy recreational activities, such as fishing, paddle boarding and kayaking.

Relative to the town itself, Palmer Lake is one of three communities within the Tri-Lakes region and has been around since the late 1800’s.  It’s located east of I-25 and is convenient for travel to either Denver (northbound) or Colorado Springs (southbound).

Palmer Lake has a quaint downtown area that offers locally owned restaurants, antique shopping, boutiques, art galleries, and other growing small businesses.  If you want to take the tie off and simply let your hair down and enjoy the freedom of the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains, then Palmer Lake might fit your lifestyle palate.  It’s a nature enthusiast area with hiking trails galore.

Special events are held during the holidays as the community gets together.  And of recent note about the new emergency town of Palmer Lake ordinance: No dogs allowed on reservoir trails at any time.

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

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.
