This victorian-style cottage home built in 1916 has been updated and modernized. Huge windows throughout, loads of natural light and a wonderful view of Pikes Peak & the Rocky Mountains from the front porch. Central location, walk to downtown.
This updated victorian cottage located in downtown Colorado Springs is on a corner lot and features huge windows and tons of natural light in all rooms. The home was originally built in 1916 and has been fully updated with modern decor and furnishings while still retaining much of its original character. Walking distance to downtown shops and restaurants and an amazing view of the iconic Pikes Peak out the large front window.
Compact but very functional and well laid out, the home features one bedroom, a great living and dining space, a well-equipped kitchen, bathroom, and mudroom.
The bedroom features a queen-sized bed with ample closet and storage space. Faux French doors lead onto a private deck with a wonderful cafe table and chairs shaded by 40-foot elm trees, perfect for enjoying a morning cup of coffee or reading.
The open-concept living area features a couch that seats up to 5, an entertainment center with a flatscreen TV and DVD player. A dining table with four chairs and a reading nook are lit with updated lighting fixtures.
The kitchen is spacious and well-equipped, with a toaster, microwave, oven, stove, plenty of coffee options (grinder, french press, drip pot and espresso machine – we love our coffee!), pots, pans and utensils available for use. We try to keep basic spices and salt & pepper stocked for guest use.
The full bathroom is simple and clean, with a full-sized tub and shower. There is a mudroom that includes a full, front-loading washer and dryer with detergent provided that is available for use.
One of our favorite parts of the property is the outdoor space. In addition to the deck off the main bedroom, we've renovated a patio space that is bordered by an original, early 20th-century brick wall and a new privacy fence. A new patio is shaded by large, mature trees. The front of the house also features a small porch with a love seat and a great view of the mountains.
For TV entertainment options, all major networks are available live via HD antenna, and Hulu Plus and Netflix make most current-season TV episodes and a huge library of movies and TV series available. High-speed (30 mpbs+) wireless internet is available throughout the house.
We will welcome you and show you around the property, and will be available as needs arise during your stay. Other than that, the place will be yours!
The home is right in the middle of one of the most sought-after areas in Colorado Springs. Renovated victorian homes from the early 20th century, wide streets and huge mature trees. A very quiet residential area on the edge of a thriving downtown.
20-minutes easy walking to the heart of downtown and shops, bars, restaurants and co-working spaces.
10-minute walk to great local coffee shops and a large park.
Great central location to explore Colorado — 5 minutes drive to I-25 for access to Denver (1.5 hours away) 10 minutes drive to Highway 24 for easy access to mountain adventures in Woodland Park (45 minutes), Breckenridge (2.5 hours) and beyond.
One block away from a bus stop, and Uber and Lyft are usually readily-available in the area if you don't have a car. The house is also close to bike trails that provide access to most areas of Colorado Springs.
Please no smoking of any kind on the property. The house is set up for two people. If you would like to have guests come to the house while you're visiting, please contact us ahead of time. Thank you!
