Residing about 11 miles east of Colorado Springs, you will find life is a little more spread out … giving you a since of being outside of the hustle and bustle of town, yet having all the neighborhood amenities that you could want in the neighboring communities of Meridian Ranch and Woodmen Hills.

Both communities share the beautiful Rick Phelp’s designed Antler Creek Golf Course, walking trails, community recreation centers, pools and workout facilities. There is something exciting for every family member and guest to do without having to leave the community.

Woodmen Hills has resale home sites that are up to 1/2 an acre in lot size. Meridian Ranch has many estate type homes and custom lots with plenty of new construction on the horizon. Homes in these areas range from the high $100,000 range to over $600,000. These neighborhoods have more competitive pricing on homes than some areas of town, and you will also enjoy having local restaurants, shopping, and D-49 schools nearby.

There is commutable access to Peterson Air Force Base, Schriever Air Force Base,  Penrose Hospital and ample shopping options in the Falcon shopping center as well as the Powers Corridor of Colorado Springs. This last year, we have even had Denver commuters purchase in Meridian Ranch to find affordable new housing options.

Downtown Colorado Springs is thriving with life…

It offers a host of year-round activities as well as unique places for foodies. Experience everything from the award-winning Fine Arts Center Theatre to Epicentral which is a thriving downtown business co-op changing the entire work culture of Colorado Springs. From the diversity of arts and business to athletes, downtown Colorado Springs is also the home to the Olympic Training Center.

Need ideas for a fun date night? Check out the Rabbit Hole, or for those “Glutards” such as myself, Coquette’s is something special! If you would like a glass of wine in a boutique style movie theater, experience Kimball’s Peak Three Theatre. For people who are wanting to experience a night or two downtown, check out The Mining Exchange where the historic building of The Mining Exchange has been brought back to life in such elegant fashion.

Colorado Springs real estate downtown has some of the most “elasticity” of any area. The average home price is around $225,000 for all of the Central part of the MLS over the last year, and there are many nuances to the area where the homes vary quite a bit from the average in price. For example, one of the most expensive MLS recorded sales for last year was in the Old North End, a 4,018 sq. foot Victorian that sold for $935,000 this past July. There are homes for first time home buyers to move-up buyers throughout the downtown region. I love how historic homes blend with enterprise. Preserving our history while creating new stories is one reason why downtown Colorado Springs speaks to my own heart!

A Premier Development of Colorado Springs

Gleneagle is located across from the Air Force Academy, along the east side of I-25. It’s an area with expansive open space, rolling topography, and views of Pikes Peak that will take your breath away. Imagine having a property where you can see Air Force games or 4th of July fireworks from your back yard set within a panoramic backdrop of the entire front range. You will find a variety of custom to semi-custom homes and floor plans ranging in year built from 1970’s to new. Many homes meander along the former golf course that now provides open space and opportunities for new development. The range of home choices continue between 5-acre estate homes in Sun Hills to patio homes and townhomes located near community shopping and dining.

Gleneagle is convenient for both Denver and Colorado Springs commuters. Antelope Trails is the elementary school for the community, and it feeds into the D-20 school system. Surrounded by all the exciting new growth that is occurring up north, Gleneagle still has a feeling of being established and set apart with a little space.

A Unique Luxury Neighborhood in Colorado Springs

Many clients speak to me of their Colorado dream before they ever arrive here in person. The dream normally consists of some land with a little “elbow room” along with trees, views, as well as close proximity into town … away from all of the hustle and bustle of life. Cathedral Pines is one of those rare luxury neighborhoods, blending together the elements that make the Colorado dream a reality.

Located on lots that are 2.5+ acres, you will find active construction thriving in the neighborhood as well as many homes that have already been built and are now resales. Residences in the area range from $900,000 to the 2Mil+ range. One exceptional feature about this neighborhood is the extensive tree mitigation that the developer took on before ever selling the lots. I have heard that each lot has on average about $30,000 in tree mitigation before they went to the open market. It makes the area feel private and exclusive with just the right amount of trees that allows natural light to burst into the home. I have also heard that the proper mitigation helped to save this area from being a disaster during the tragic Black Forest Fire.

I personally love the topography of rolling hills, trees, and on the right lot you will be able to see the entire Front Range including Pikes Peak. There is also the beautiful Lodge at Cathedral Pines ~ a picture-perfect place to host a wedding or special event. Also, experience abundant open space and areas to walk throughout the community.

It is wonderful to have access to the D-20 Schools and to be so close to the Northgate corridor where all the new growth is occurring. You can find HOA information available at www.cathedralpineshoa.org. You will also find that the neighborhood has public roads, and the community has easy access for both Colorado Springs and Denver commuters. Also, many medical professionals find that the area is convenient to their practice and proximity to Memorial as well as Penrose Hospital. We love helping clients with new construction as well as resales in this unique pocket of our city.
