Peregrine in Colorado Springs

Peregrine is my favorite neighborhood in the city.❀️ The homes are unique, and the location is unbeatable. Positioned at the far Northwest corner of town, Perigrine backs up against the Air Force Academy to the North and the Rocky Mountains to the West, so there is no thru-traffic. It's hard to find another neighborhood anywhere in town that offers this much seclusion with quiet mountain surroundings.

The city views from Peregrine at night are some of the best anywhere in town. Residents enjoy unobstructed views overlooking Colorado Springs in its entirety. Take a drive through Peregrine, and you'll see why we made it our #1 pick.

Number FourWOODMEN HILLS

Median Sales Price: $310k
Average Home Size: 2,500
Average Year Built: 2004

Woodmen Hils in Falcon

It's hard to find a home with a large yard at an average price point in Colorado Springs. This is what makes Woodmen Hills unique. Many of the homes here have large over-sized yards with plenty of privacy, and homeowners enjoy the freedoms afforded by an inactive HOA. The Antler Creek Golf Course runs right through the Northern section of the neighborhood, offering even more open views. It's unusual to find this much green space in a community at this price point. 

Woodmen Hills has parks and trails scattered throughout the neighborhood, as well as a pool and two recreation centers. It shares a border with Merdian Ranch, which extends your trail options even further. The popularity of Woodmen Hills continues every year, as the trend for developers in most new areas is to opt for smaller yards. As local land becomes more scarce, Woodmen Hills' extra green space is sure to secure it a spot as a favorite of future residents.
