South West Colorado Springs Skyway Homes

The exclusive, established Colorado Springs CO real estate in Skyway is situated in the foothills southwest of Downtown Colorado Springs and north of the historic 5-Star Broadmoor Hotel & Country Club. Skyway showcases Colorado Springs most prestigious homes. Majestic views of Pikes Peak and the Colorado Rockies add grandeur to the already elegant Skyway neighborhoods.

The newest Skyway neighborhood appropriately called Top of Skyway features custom Colorado Springs homes and real estate tucked in a coveted area among expansive city parklands and national forest. Top of Skyway offers a quality of life designed for people who want the conveniences of the city nearby but also love the rapture of nature close at hand. Each parcel of this Colorado Springs real estate enjoys a unique setting with unparalleled views, indigenous plant life, and frolicking wildlife.

From January to September 2008, the average listing price in Skyway was $410,000 although mansions near the Broadmoor begin in the $600s. A variety of options for living in Skyway’s neighborhoods includes affordable enclaves in Lower Skyway. (There are also affordable neighboring subdivisions in Cheyenne Canyon, Ivywild, and Stratton Meadows.) Other homes in Skyway (as well as in nearby Broadmoor Heights, Broadmoor Bluff, Cheyenne Mountain Ranch, Broadmoor Oaks, and Penhurst Park) are priced in the $400-800 range.

Homes overlook the Garden of the Gods and Skyway’s trail system. In addition, the excellent city park system offers the North Cheyenne Canyon Park on the southwest side of Top of Skyway and the 1200-acre Bear Creek Canyon Park to the northwest.

Families are served by the Cheyenne Mountain District 12 schools including Skyway Park Elementary, Gold Camp Elementary, Cheyenne Mountain Junior High, and Cheyenne Mountain High schools.

The Springs is a culturally rich city located in the center of the state. Once tribes, traders, and pioneers passed through and many a gold miner stopped at its saloons. During the late 1800s, the city became a destination for the wealthy looking to enjoy Pikes Peak National Forest and nearby health spas and hot springs. Today, the city of 500,000 features a strong tourist industry, the stability of three military bases and government offices, and the diversity of high-tech and creative arts.

The community is close to Fort Carson, Pikes Peak Community College, the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, and Seven Falls. It is 20 minutes from the Colorado Springs International Airport, 15 minutes from Citadel Shopping Mall, University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, and 5 or 10 minutes from downtown.
