Upscale Peregrine Protects Colorado Springs Solace

One of the newer upscale portions of Colorado Springs CO real estate, the Peregrine neighborhood is nestled in large and mature trees at the base of Blodgett Peak in the northwestern section of the city.  The El Paso County community envelopes more than a thousand Colorado Springs CO homes off of Rockrimmon and West Woodmen roads, immediately south of the Air Force Academy on the edge of Pike National Forest and the Rocky Mountains.

Named after the Peregrine Falcon, a native bird of prey, the Peregrine homes in Colorado Springs are close to the Garden of the Gods Park, Ute Valley Park, and numerous hiking and biking trails that lead as far away as Manitou Springs and on up into the ski resorts.  The highly acclaimed District 20 schools serve the families.

The Peregrine Master Association for 1,000 homeowners in Peregrine also includes homeowners associations for three smaller communities of Colorado Springs homes.  The Keller Homes development called La Bellezza at Peregrine is a community of 47 private near West Woodmen and Dutchrock Road.  The Sanctuary at Peregrine consists of 60 homes located on Orchard Valley Road, and the Villages at Peregrine features 49 homes on the eastern entrance of Peregrine near West Woodmen and Orchard Valley.

For years the Woodmen Valley offered refuge and solace in its wildlife-rich wooded rural acreage.  Here residents have enjoyed secluded five-acre lots, horses, gravel roads, mysterious rock formations, and hills.  As annexations and commercial projects and subdivisions attempt to move closer, residents are speaking out to protect their quality of life and investments.  Some organized into the Woodmen Valley Preservation Association to be sure that the future conserves the heritage of Peregrine.

La Belleza’s courtyard villas and the smart architecture and planning of The Sanctuary and The Villages began during the 1990s when the entire corridor from Denver to Colorado Springs burst with new life.  Surrounded by Woodmen Valley Park, La Bellezza at Peregrine is a retreat where deer frolic, sunsets reflect on the rocks, and neighbors take evening walks past fountains and serene landscaping.  The foothills truly accent the theme—Tuscany in the United States.  The prices in the Peregrine neighborhood range from $369,900 to over a million dollars with the average sale price in the mid $400s.

The neighborhood is conveniently located about five minutes from Interstate 25.  From I-25 it is 16 miles to the major business parks like Denver Tech Center and 15 minutes to The Springs downtown area.  Chapel Hills Mall and North Academy Boulevard shopping options are less than ten minutes away.
