King’s Deer Community in Monument Colorado

If you like a country feel with all of the amenities of civilization, ask about real estate in King’s Deer Classic and Highlands subdivisions near Monument  in northern El Paso County.  Tucked away west of Interstate 25 along the foothills of Front Range of the Colorado Rocky Mountains, west of Colorado Springs’ homes, King’s Deer features the pure links of the world-class King’s Deer Golf Club along with its 1,800-acre community.

The community experiences the clear blue skies, meandering wildlife, and a great escape from urban life.  Located two and a half miles east of Monument, King’s Deer is 20 minutes from both downtown areas in Colorado Springs and Castle Rock and 30 minutes from the C-470 and I-25 roadways.

These country estate homes west of Colorado Springs CO real estate are just far enough away and close enough to be convenient and peaceful at the same time.  Featuring large 2.5-acre lots, about 340 of these upscale, rural homes west of Colorado Springs are sprinkled along a tranquil and private trail system.  Families enjoy 12 miles of walking and bicycling paths that traverse through the expansive community.  Stocked fishing ponds offer great picnic spots and the space to be away from it all.  Playgrounds are strategically placed as are the golfing greens that really extend the feeling of getting away.

The King’s Deer Golf Club brings the feel and design of the great Scottish courses to America.  Challenging shots of all types and varieties flow around open spaces, 200 acres of native rolling hills, and lush wetlands.  The views of Pikes Peak and the Rockies lift golfers to a surreal experience of awesome beauty.

Although the community took shape in the early 1990s, the King’s Deer Golf Club opened in 1999.  It quickly established itself as one of the best golf courses in the state.  Featuring the same designers as The Ridge at Castle Pines, Redstone Golf, the 18-hole championship layout has proven to be enjoyably difficult.  Accommodating golfers of all abilities, tee yardages range from 5,054 yards to 7,000 yards.

Additionally, the golf community features a wonderful clubhouse and restaurant, a golf shop, a putting and chipping area, a large elevated practice range, and state-of-the-art GPS yardage system on every golf cart—a great way to mix science and intuition to perfect the game.

The population of Monument is over 12,000 with a median income of $107,447.  Over 92 percent of homes are owned and the median home value is $345,000.  Students are served by the Lewis-Palmer School District 38.
