Along the Front Range foothills in northern Colorado Springs CO real estate, the master-planned community of Cathedral Pines features open spaces, towering pines, and stunning views—all with easy access to Interstate 25.  One of the most beautiful Colorado Springs subdivisions, the state-of-the-art community design encompasses 810 acres that artfully include 158 lots, a community lodge, ponds, parkland, and walking trails that merge with the southwestern corner of the Black Forest Regional Park.

Located 2 miles east of Highway 83 and Shoup Road near I-25 and Interquest Parkway, Cathedral Pines is also near the new Club at Flying Horse.  The Cathedral Pines’ magnificent custom dream homes in Colorado Springs are framed by thick stands of Ponderosa Pine.  The unique forested real estate features 2.5- to 5-acre lots along streets with names like Fox Chase Way and Millhaven.  If you would rather have a Colorado Springs property with Pike’s Peak mountain views, choose a lot with less trees and more open space.

Custom and high-end, semi-custom builders such as Symphony, Aspen Valley, Copperleaf, Genesis, Hammer, Hidden Rock, and Murphy have played a role in making Cathedral Pines a best choice in the area.  The average list price is $1,200,000; homes stay on the market only about 53 days.

Cathedral Pines conveys the feeling of a real nature’s preserve—for a true Colorado experience.  Extend your vision to the heights of Pike’s Peak or look down at the scurrying little critters in the woods.  Let your children capture the simplicity of a colorful wildflower under the azure skies.  Or get out some snowshoes and explore even further.  Amenities at the 24-acre Black Forest Regional Park include large expanses for horseback riding and hiking, a large playground with great equipment, a park area for playing volleyball, and plenty of opportunities to greet the resident wildlife and your neighbors.  “One touch of nature makes the whole world kin, mused William Shakespeare.

That kinship can be celebrated at the striking community center that is available for homeowners to use for private and community social functions.  The Lodge at Cathedral Pines offers guests an elegant yet rustic venue for weddings, receptions, teas, corporate functions and more—right in the middle of the historic Black Forest.  The facility will comfortably accommodate 100 guests for a reception or 60 guests for a seated dinner.  In addition, an outdoor patio overlooks lush water features and pine forest.

A remarkable quality of life has been achieved through careful planning, down to the last detail.  Buried utilities, paved roads, community street lights, a community walking trail system winding throughout the development, stocked trout fishing ponds, multiple water features and gathering areas—each contribute to the park-like setting.
