Broadmoor Colorado Springs Homes for Sale
The Broadmoor is one of Colorado Springs oldest, most prestigious areas. Tree-lined, quiet streets shade the mansions built in the early 1900’s with many being built from the Roaring 20’s until World War II began. Today, new builds and rebuilt homes are sprinkled among the original mansions.
The Broadmoor was originally populated by those who helped shape the original course of the city and the ultra-wealthy who could afford a second home out west. Today successful professionals, business owners, and real estate developers are some of the neighbors you may rub shoulders with on the golf course. It is among one of the most affluent communities in the United States, consistently placing in the top 15%.
The world-renowned five-star resort, Broadmoor Hotel and Resort, is the capstone of this neighborhood and offers world-class amenities from golf, tennis, and fine dining. The Resort offers six distinctive restaurants on site, from the English-inspired Golden Bee to the Lake Terrace Dining Room which serves up a hearty, sprawling brunch accompanied by jazz music drawing locals and tourists alike every weekend.
The original Broadmoor neighborhood and Broadmoor Bluffs, a neighboring community of residences, share Cheyenne Mountain School District (D-12). D-12 has received awards of distinction and 85% of Cheyenne Mountain High School’s graduates continue on to higher education, many of whom are accepted into some of the most prestigious universities around the United States.
Broadmoor has primarily single-family residences which are owner-occupied; this area has almost 7% of the properties that are seasonally occupied, a bit higher than the national average. The population of the Broadmoor includes retirees and urban sophisticates who are drawn to the sophisticated charm, quiet streets, and proximity to all amenities. Downtown, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, Southgate Shopping Center, and other nearby destinations make Broadmoor’s community desirable, in addition to local parks, biking paths, and numerous trailheads along Cheyenne Canyon. Notable trails include St Mary’s Falls, Seven Bridges, Mt. Cutler, and Stratton Open Space. Bear Creek Dog Park to entertain your four-legged friend is a quick five-minute drive. The dog park has a separate area for small dogs.
