This mountain home requires a unique buyer. It's tucked into a spectacular gated canyon just east of Woodland Park off Highway 24, so it's a prime spot for those who need to go into Colorado Springs easily. It's a maintained gravel mountain road into the canyon for a short distance, up a driveway to catch the great views and arrive at a fabulous custom home adjacent to National Forest - with a trail right outside your front door for daily exercise and dog walking. The home is well built, with an open floor plan on the main level for entertaining and lots of drama and exciting architectural details. Extensive windows for light & Pikes Peak views. The large kitchen with rich cherry cabinetry has a gas cooktop, wall oven/micro, island, walk in pantry, built in desk & lighted display cabinets. A spacious main level office has french doors and great light, and there's a nice entry with powder room and closet.

The lower level has a large rec room with access to the lower patio, a custom wet bar, pellet stove and garage access. A third bedroom, a full bath and a workshop with plumbing complete this level. Gorgeous gardens surrounding the home are natural with rocks, paths, stairways and perennials everywhere - a poppy garden, iris, lilacs and a koi pond, with everything pretty maintenance free. A trail into the Pike National Forest connects outside the front door, with access to hiking to thousands of acres of forest.
