As Colorado Springs continues to grow on a fast-paced schedule, it seems as if the north end of the city is receiving lots of attention for new home construction. And why not? Not only are local residents drawn to new homes and new restaurants and additional shopping and more fun things to do, but so are residents from Denver. Yes, that’s right. Compared to the Denver housing market, Colorado Springs still offers some options of residential affordability, and people are seeking some of these choices in the Northgate sector of Colorado Springs.
Located near the north entrance of the Air Force Academy, Northgate covers approximately 55 square miles at an estimated elevation of 6,900 feet above sea level. From most places within Northgate, a panoramic view of Pikes Peak and the surrounding foothills captures your view. It seems like the locations of neighborhoods and the placement of houses on lots has also tickled the ears of the various new home builders of Northgate who try to emphasize the magnificence of the mountain range. Typically, home prices are a little higher than other specific areas of Colorado Springs. The median sales price is over $400,000 and seems to be climbing annually, as listing inventory is very low within the Colorado Springs Real Estate market.
The Flying Horse development is nothing short of spectacular with a Flying Horse North development to soon be added. Within the Club at Flying Horse, there is a well-designed 18-hole golf course by Tom Weiskopf, plus a World-class Steakhouse for dining, an Athletic Club, In-Door Tennis Courts, Spa and luxury overnight lodging opportunities. The residential housing at Flying Horse is tailor made for luxury living.
In Northgate, there are retail businesses that provide an economic anchor for other small businesses, such as Bass Pro Shops, Interquest Movie Theaters, Great Wolf Lodges, Summit Entertainment Center, plus more.
Mega church, New Life, provides worship services on Friday evenings and on Sundays. Next to New Life and the World Prayer Center is Pikes Peak Community College.
For those who are pre-college, District #20 Schools provide excellent education for elementary, middle and high school ages. Also, there are several private and alternative educational pathways of learning within #20 District. Take a look onto www.asd20.org for more information.
Overall, Northgate is growing rather quickly with new businesses opening constantly. Give me a call if you have expressed interest in Northgate, which is your gateway between Colorado Springs and Denver on I-25.
