When people envision moving out west, many have images of mountain tops running through their thoughts.

Even casual outdoor enthusiasts will be thrilled to have walking access to Bear Creek Park and Red Rock Canyon Open Space. Easy entry to a new trail each day is a hiker's dream. Don’t worry, however, all of this proximity to nature doesn’t come at a cost to commute time, which is only 30 minutes to the Air Force Academy and less than 10 miles to Fort Carson, Peterson AFB, and Cheyenne Mountain Air Station.  

This home was built in 2017 and has every modern update a renter or buyer could ask for to be considered move-in ready, including a very convenient wine cellar!

A home located on a corner, in a golf course community, provides plenty of ways to enjoy the fresh air.

Even the dog gets to be included in the fun, because an underground fence keeps him safely at home! 

The back deck welcomes guests for a grilled dinner, but the vistas in distance keep friends and family lingering while enjoying pleasant evenings.

Stepping inside, the wide open feeling continues. Picturesque views, streaming natural light, and large living areas flow within. Large families will feel comfortable, with four bedrooms and a separate playroom. A convenient upstairs laundry keeps housekeeping simple.

Here’s another amazing example of how to take advantage of the Colorado lifestyle!

A welcoming front porch is perfect for rocking chairs and festive drinks: cool lemonade in the summer or crisp apple cider in the fall. You don’t have to pick, the porch provides covered enjoyment all year round!

The simple to maintain landscaping begins in the front yard and extends into the back where the yard is designed with entertaining in mind. A covered gazebo adds charm and shade, while the patio area is ideal for meals cooked outside. Small garden beds are uncomplicated to tend to, and the grass adds extra surface to play. Finally, coveted fencing supplies privacy and safety.

Let creativity take over, as you finish the basement to your specifications. Anything goes! A hobby room, office suite, or another bedroom all add value to the home. 

Homes like these are hard to beat! Ideal locations, easy commutes, and perfected outdoor living spaces are all waiting for you!
