Neighborhood Preview: Skyway

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.
