Ok, I'm biased. Our family moved to the southwest part of Colorado Springs in 1986. However, the Broadmoor area is where my roots are. Waking up to the incredible rock formations on Cheyenne Mountain being baked in the warm morning sun every morning is a privilege and quite honestly an experience within itself. This area has class. It has charm. It has incredible outdoor recreational opportunities. The Broadmoor area is adorned with classic, history-rich homes, to mid-century mansions and finally modern yet classic town homes and just about any type of single family you can think of in-between. For anyone looking for luxury homes in Colorado Springs, they must look to the Broadmoor area first. One of the main reasons the Broadmoor area is such a desirable place to live is because of the many real estate options in close proximity to the Broadmoor hotel and surrounding desirable neighborhoods.
The following are my top 5 reasons to consider purchasing a home in the Broadmoor area.
1. Vibrant Real Estate Market
The Broadmoor real estate market contains more 4,5 bedroom homes than 96.8% of the neighborhoods in America. That means that this neighborhood is one of the most sought after neighborhoods in Colorado Springs not to mention on of the top neighborhoods in the state of Colorado. With grand views of the Front Range Rocky Mountains, Cheyenne Mountain and Pikes Peak the Broadmoor area is sure to impress.
2. Outdoor Activities
With a place like Colorado Springs and the Broadmoor area, the question should be what outdoor activities can you NOT do!? The warm months will be filled with hiking, biking and running on the miles and miles of trails throughout the area. In the winter you can put on your snowshoes and cross-country skis while enjoying all the same trails or head up to the slopes are one of the many local ski resorts within a couple hour drive from Colorado Springs. The myriad of activities can be a bit overwhelming to decide what to do so check out my 10 top favorite things to do around the Broadmoor area.
Along with the many trails and parks in the area, there are some exceptional attractions worth visiting over and over again as you may never have the exact same experience at that location twice. Whether you're interested in museums, rodeos, historic buildings, waterfalls, sacred sights, or geologic features the Broadmoor area has some great options. The following are just some of the sights the Broadmoor area has to offer:
- North Cheyenne Canyon Park
- Cheyenne Mountain Zoo
- Bear Creek Park
- Cheyenne Mountain State Park
- Old Colorado City Historic District
- Seven Falls
3. Top Ranked Schools
When trying to decide on a neighborhood to relocated to it is important to consider the quality of schools in the area. Cheyenne Mountain School District 12 has some of the highest ranking schools in the state. As a matter of fact, according to SchoolDigger.com Cheyenne Mountain School district is ranked #1 in the state. We are biased as our three boys attended school at Cheyenne Mountain, however we could not be happier with their experience as the district has been ranked high since they were in Elementary school in the 80's.
4. Community of Great People
The Broadmoor community is filled with great people. Our family has developed a great network in this area after living here for over 32 years. There are numerous great churches, athletic leagues, networking groups and incredible opportunities for people who want to get involved in the community such as Friends of Cheyenne Canyon Park and Friends of Cheyenne Mountain State Park. Additionally, organizations such as the El Pomar foundation really bring a strong bond to the Broadmoor community.
5. Prices Predicted to Continue to Rise
The Broadmoor area is in close proximity to many surrounding areas are that currently in the revitalization process. The Broadmoor area used to be one of the fastest appreciating areas in the city of Colorado Springs. This has leveled off as the area has matured a bit, however, with the urban renewal projects going on in places like South Nevada avenue and the Ivywild school the area home values are predicted to rise faster in the next few years as these projects are completed and these areas are gentrified.
