17650 Shahara Rd. 5-Acres

We have just listed a beautiful lot in the Canterbury Subdivision of Monument, Colorado. This 5.3 acre lot is zoned for horses and features a nice balance of trees and meadows. There are several great building sites amongst the mature ponderosa pines or in the open rolling meadows. What a great lot to build your new Colorado Springs Home.

 

Additionally, there are several walk-out basement possibilities. The lot would require both well and septic but the remaining utilities are already to the street. We have priced this lot at $185,000, If you have been looking for privacy in nature, you need to see this lot before it’s too late. For more information, please visit: http://shahararoad.com

1201 Valley View Dr, Larkspur, CO

I was SO excited to go on this listing, for many reasons... I love hiking Spruce Mountain, I love Douglas County in general, and this was a personal referral to me! I was a little concerned about location, and surprised I got there so quickly up through Palmer Lake. And when I got there, even more excited. I can't wait for you to see this great house!! Just about anyone will enjoy this fantastic foothills location, with easy commutes to Denver and Colorado Springs. This is just a couple minutes north of Palmer Lake, 15 minutes from Northgate Blvd and 45 minutes straight up Hwy 105 & Santa Fe into Littleton. This open ranch plan is nestled on a curved lot for amazing privacy, plus sweet front views down into the Spruce Mountain Valley! Trees and wildlife abound from almost every space in this house.
