Flying Horse Premier Golf Community

Ensconced on the northern edge of Colorado Springs, Colorado real estate, the fabulous Flying Horse Country Club homes feature the best of the best with an Italian flair.  Flying Horse real estate in beautiful Colorado Springs raises the bar.  Residents of these Colorado Springs CO homes enjoy awesome views, fun parks, schools, and championship golf and a location convenient to Rocky Mountain ski resorts and Denver amenities.

Classic Homes, the developer of this fine Colorado Springs real estate, is joined in Flying Horse by other reputable builders such as Keller Homes and Vantage Homes.  The development offers architecturally friendly floor plans and custom options including Built Green and Energy Star Homes.  The premier Colorado Springs golf-course community offers a variety of fine real-estate for elegant Colorado living.  Available home sites, condominiums and townhomes, and single-family homes are clustered in a unique village-style design, many along the fairways.  Each village reflects its own Western/Italian personality.  For example, the Village of Syrah features a playing field, playground, and an in-line hockey arena in Barefoot Park.  There are villages themed in Colorado Comfortable, European Grandeur, and more.

Former PGA champion Tom Weiskopf speaks of the private, 18-hole, signature golf course.  “My design reflects the best of what I have seen in the past as a professional golfer.”  The aesthetically pleasing, technically challenging course features mature trees, natural rock formations, interesting aquatic features, elevation changes of less than 35 feet, and dog legs right or bends left on the majority of the holes.

The Clubhouse and the Athletic Club & Spa at Flying Horse offer a full menu of services catering to every need.  A comprehensive community center features indoor and outdoor pools and tennis courts, an aerobic gym, basketball, and more.  Club membership includes golf, tennis, aquatics, fitness (cardio, free weights, yoga, Pilates), a gymnasium, spa services, family and fine dining, and private dining and meeting facilities.

Families are flocking to Flying Horse for other reasons.  One is connected to the ingenious concept school called Discovery Canyon, a K-12 which sets the community apart from the other luxury real estate in neighborhoods like Cathedral Pines or The Preserve at Walden Forest.  Within walking distance and surrounded by military and aeronautical companies, the school emphasizes the complementary curriculum of math and science.  Currently open for lower grades and scheduled for completion by 2011, the school will accommodate 600 elementary, 1000 middle school, and 1200 high school students administered by Academy School District 20.  The District also runs The Classical Academy, a K-12 charter school that emphasizes observation, narration, dialog, and hands-on activities.

Within 10 minutes are several shopping venues and destinations including the Chapel Hills Mall, The Promenade Shops at Briargate, grocery stores and flagship stores.  Between the activities of the Air Force Academy, The Santa Fe Trail, Fox Run Regional Park, and Garden of the Gods, residents and their guests find plenty of reasons to take a day trip.  The perfect location off of North Gate Boulevard and Highway 83 underscores an already off-the-charts value for quality living in the ultimate of Front Range settings.  An investment in this community leaves a legacy for generations.
