Colorado Springs growth in the 1950s through the early 70s pushed east of Union Blvd. The Audubon neighborhood is increasingly popular these days with charming brick ranchers (ramblers), split levels on large lots (up to 12,000 square feet) and the local novelty of hardwood trees. It takes a good forty years for a tree to mature and fill out in Colorado Springs, and this area has had that chance. The character of the trees has become its own attraction. Further east, the first Parade of Homes included Villa Loma and Village Seven, suburban neighborhoods characterized by winding roads and a variety of lot sizes. You will generally get a lot of square footage and a decently short drive-time for the money in this area. Zip codes include 80909 and 80917.
Colorado Springs Country Club has a devoted membership. Nearby is a jewel among Colorado Springs’ parks, Palmer Park. This signature park was a gift from city founder General William Jackson Palmer to the citizens of Colorado Springs, a bequest of his own chunk of pristine forested land that was a later catalyst for our tremendous open space system. With 25 miles of hiking and 740 acres Palmer Park offers urbanites wilderness-like access within minutes. The combination of these two large amenities is drawing new investment to the affordable high quality of life that is merely 12 minutes from downtown and I-25.
Schools are School District 11 and there is a wide variety of retail available along Academy Blvd. The Powers corridor and Downtown are minutes away.
