PREVIOUSLY OFFERED FOR $4.25 MILLION. NOW SELLING WITHOUT RESERVE! Situated on more than 45 private acres and boasting dramatic views of Pikes Peak, this luxurious mountain estate is a truly unique offering in Colorado Springs! Located within the Cathedral Pines community and featuring its own private road and security gate, this +13,000-sf estate offers exceptional privacy and serenity – all within a 45 to 60-min drive of downtown Denver, CO.
The approach to the home includes beautiful, natural surroundings and Ponderosa pines, and concludes with a stately, circular drive and two-story porte cochère. A spectacular view of Pikes Peak provides the backdrop.
The tri-level estate offers 6 bedrooms, 7 full baths and 3 half baths. The upper living level is devoted to spacious bedrooms with walk-in closets and custom-tiled, en-suite baths, in addition to a finished loft stubbed for an additional bath. An independent mother-in-law suite with living area and kitchenette is adjacent to the bedrooms, and also has a separate entry from the north garage.
Entry-level entertaining areas include a grand salon and spacious sunroom separated by a wall of folding glass doors, which can be opened to create one large space perfect for family gatherings. The fully enclosed sunroom also features floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open onto an oversized terrace, creating an indoor / outdoor living space that takes advantage of the incomparable views – including a direct view of Pikes Peak (one of Colorado’s most famous “fourteener” mountains).
A gourmet kitchen with professional-grade appliances flows into a cozy family room and breakfast nook perfect for casual meals, while a formal dining room is accessible through the grand foyer or the generously sized butler’s pantry. The remainder of the main level is comprised of a master suite that includes a walk-through shower, soaking tub and large, his-and-hers closets as well as a private sitting area and deck.
The lower living level was built for family fun, and includes a large game room, indoor “swim spa” lap pool, and a hot tub with waterfall designed in a “rock grotto” style. There is also a freestanding steam shower, home theater with adjacent bar, art gallery/lounge, and fitness center.
Moving throughout the home’s three levels can be done in one of three ways: on foot, via its private elevator, or – if only going from the main level to the lower level – by way of a custom-built tube slide providing fun for kids (or adults) of all ages! (Design aficionados and aesthetes need not worry – access to the slide is neatly tucked away behind a hallway door).

CATHEDRAL PINES, CO. Situated in the Black Forest region in northeast Colorado Springs, Cathedral Pines is an upscale community planned with an eye toward preservation, and it retains much of the original and rural character of the region as a result. Named for its high density of Ponderosa Pines, the Black Forest boasts several historic sites and structures including the Black Forest School (est. 1923).
Spanning 810 of the Black Forest’s 81,600 total acres, Cathedral Pines offers 170 home sites, each situated on about 2.5 acres.
Modest HOA fees of $400 annually contribute to the maintenance and upkeep of the community’s hiking trails and ponds. It’s also adjacent to the 385-acre Black Forest Regional Park, which has turf playfields, basketball and tennis courts, playgrounds and picnic pavilions built within the natural openings of the pine forest. Though the setting is rural, Cathedral Pines is located only 2 miles east of highway 83, making the commute between Colorado Springs and Denver a simple one. Depending on traffic, the heart of downtown Denver is within only a 45 to 60-min drive.
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO. With an average of 243 sunny days and predominately moderate temperatures throughout the year, it is no wonder Colorado Springs is at the top of U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Places to Live” list. Outdoor enthusiasts will rejoice at beautiful local parks, nearby ski resorts and 350 miles of hiking trails, while the more competitive types can race to the top of the challenging Manitou Incline alongside Olympic hopefuls from the US Olympic Training Center.
For those more inclined to contemplation, the serene Garden of the Gods provides dramatic views of nearby Pikes Peak from the base of towering sandstone rock formations. Rock climbing (permitted with a free annual permit), white water rafting on the nearby Arkansas river, visiting the largest herd of reticulated giraffes in the U.S., and lounging with human and canine friends at The Broadmoor Seven Falls are just a few of the many ways to spend a day in the area.
Colorado Springs is also home to the US Air Force Academy, USA Hockey and Bristol Brewing Company, and is gaining a name for itself as a haven for tech startups. Not to be outdone by Denver and Boulder, Colorado Springs has embraced companies like Formstack, Cherwell Software, Altia, and BurstIQ – all of which take advantage of the business-friendly lease rates and local support for entrepreneurship. In fact, CNBC.com named Colorado Springs one of the top 20 Metro areas for starting a business in America.
