When Colorado Springs was first designed, the downtown area was built with extra-wide roads, accounting for growth in the area. This planning has allowed many of these beautiful homes in the area to be untouched by construction for the last century. Neighborhoods like the Old North End showcase some of the city's oldest and most beautiful homes. Homes in downtown have beautiful views of the mountains as well as easy access to Colorado's second-largest city.

Black Forest

The Black Forest is located on the north end of Colorado Springs and is home to some of the largest properties available in the city. The Black Forest has incredible views of Pikes Peak and the Front Range, and it offers residence more space than other locations in the city. The community is a tight-knit one, especially after the Black Forest Fire in the summer of 2013. Since then, the forest has regrown, and the community has regrown with it. Now the Ponderosa pine trees are sprouting up again, the feeling throughout the area is one of serenity and peacefulness. This area is truly magical in the sense that you are 15 minutes from the busy city, but you can own 10 acres of your own property. There are no other places like Black Forest in the state, let alone the country.
