The stately homes surrounding the internationally famous five-star Broadmoor Hotel are referred to as the “Broadmoor area” of Colorado Springs Colorado real estate.  Situated at the base of Cheyenne Mountain, the beautiful Broadmoor area features homes with magnificent settings and wondrous views of Pikes Peak and the City of Colorado Springs.  These special homes in Colorado Springs were built from 1900 to 2000.

As one of the oldest and most distinguished of the Colorado Springs CO real estate, the area is more or less contained in the top-rated Colorado Springs School District 12, west of Interstate 25 between Downtown Colorado Springs and Fort Carson.  Basically, it includes all of the tree-lined streets around the Broadmoor Hotel, Skyway which is north of the Hotel, and Cheyenne Mountain Ranch which extends from the base of Cheyenne Mountain to the entrance to the North American Air Defense Command.

Situated along Lake Avenue, Broadmoor is the most expensive residential community in Colorado Springs.  The fine older homes vary in size from 3,400 to 5,800 square feet and reach along roads that lead into Cheyenne Canyon.  They are predominantly ranch-style and two-story homes featuring 4-6 bedrooms in a broad range of styles with an average listing price in 2008 of $807,382 but prices up to $4M.  The Skyway area offers some newer homes on hillside lots.

Cheyenne Mountain Ranch includes several mountainside subdivisions with natural vegetation and wonderful views of the mountains, city lights, and the plains.  Broadmoor Hills, Broadmoor Bluffs, Broadmoor Glen, and Broadmoor Oaks are in this area along with the Country Club of Colorado and Cheyenne Mountain Resort.  Broadmoor Bluffs is a newer community of homes begun in the mid 1980s along Star Ranch Road and Broadmoor Bluffs Drive.  Homes range from $360,000 to $825,000 with popular price points in the upper $400s.  A new condo community called Las Casas offers alternative living beginning in the $170s.

Maintaining the standard of luxury for almost a century, the Broadmoor Resort continues to be the centerpiece of the Broadmoor area.  Originally the Hotel featured three golf courses, a rodeo arena, and an artificial ice arena.  Today, a Donald Ross-designed golf course, tennis club, and world-class spa define the elegant recreation at the Broadmoor Resort.  The World Arena has replaced the older ice arena and boasts three sheets of artificial ice.

Endless cultural and recreational activities include Pikes Peak, Garden of the Gods, Seven Falls, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo and destinations that are sought out by people from around the world.  The neighborhood is easily accessible to downtown and Fort Carson and only 20 minutes to the Colorado Springs Airport.
