Take a drive through a lovely neighborhood tucked away on a mountain’s edge to get to this splendid house in Broadmoor Bluffs at 455 Lowick Drive. The neighborhood is a short drive southwest of Colorado Springs and features several open spaces with meandering walking paths. The home sits high above the city for sweeping views of the cityscape below along with the sprawling Colorado plains. As you stand on the spacious, outdoor deck take a deep breath and enjoy the fresh and invigorating smell of mountain air easing down the slopes of Cheyenne Mountain. It’s a quiet, friendly neighborhood, with children exploring the parks and open spaces. Well-maintained homes are accented with oak brush, prairie grasses, boulders, and pine trees. All-in-all, this area has a very “welcome home” and close-knit community feel. Just around the corner from 455 Lowick Drive is Oak Meadows park, a quaint and beautiful park to stroll around or have a picnic, and if you have children, Cheyenne Mountain Elementary School is only a few short blocks down the hill.
When you pull up to 455 Lowick Drive, a stone pathway leads through the attractive xeriscaping to an impressive rock entryway with high arches. As you enter, it is clear the builders summoned inside the majesty and beauty of the mountains through the use of large windows throughout the home, also allowing for ample natural sunlight.
The use of arches flows in harmony from the exterior into the remainder of the home. The focal point of the open family room is the stone fire place. Imagine cozy nights with your family enjoying the fire during movie night or game night. There is plenty of room for a crowd – or send everyone out, dim the lights, gaze at the stars from the large windows, and enjoy a romantic night for two. Continuing on the main level, the spacious kitchen is open to the living room and also connects to a more intimate, formal dining room. There is plenty of room for family members to sit at the kitchen island and a casual breakfast nook has ample space for a buffet or china cabinet. Dark wood cabinets stand in beautiful contrast to the lighter granite counter tops, light wood floors and sleek, modern stainless steel appliances. A small butler nook provides additional storage.
Hardwood floors are found in the high traffic areas on the main level, with carpeting reserved for those parts of the home for lounging and resting. Two bedrooms are located on the main level along with two full baths. The master draws you in with it’s vaulted ceiling and bay window. Add your favorite chair to this overlook and dream the day away. Unique tile work in the master bath gives it an elegant feel and the cabinets have an old-world essence. Soak your cares away in the jetted garden tub. Pass through the master bath to access your walk-in closet. A second bedroom on the main floor is ideal for guests, including access to a full-sized bath with the same upscale finishes as the master bath.
The lower level presents a space for the rest of your family with two additional bedrooms, a bathroom, a space for a second living area, and an open recreational/office space. Sliding glass doors turn this area into a magnificent walkout to the backyard thereby creating an ideal scenario for active families or entertaining several guests. Or, if you’re inclined to telecommute, the lower level provides an ideal situation to create a work space that feels like it’s away from home (but not really!).
