It's often said that "the west side is the best side" and this is a golden opportunity to experience it for yourself! Tucked away on a quiet street in an idyllic neighborhood you'll enjoy a private, parklike backyard & Pioneer Park just down the street! Garden of the Gods is minutes away as is Old Colorado City, Manitou Springs & Red Rock Canyon Open Space - a 1474 acre city park with hiking, cycling & equestrian trails. If skiing, fishing or camping light your fire, a short drive away is Highway 24 - the "gateway" to the Rockies from Colorado Springs. Commute/travels north or south are a piece of cake as it's an easy navigation to Highway 25... downtown is very close too! Schools, grocery shopping, restaurants, convenient stores, Starbucks & the VA Clinic are all in close proximity. The living room/dining room/kitchen (sort of a great room!) are open & bright with vaulted ceiling & walk out to 25 x 10 deck & a glorious backyard. Primary suite is huge at 20 x 13, has as walk in closet & stackable washer and dryer - laundry hook ups in basement as well if you'd like to get your steps in. Check out these amenities: two wood burning fireplaces, quality vinyl windows (main level only), all appliances included, central air conditioning, automatic sprinkler system, roof inspected/5 year roof certification, gigantic rec room/family room with cabinets/craft area.
