Summerfield Neighborhood in Briargate Colorado Springs

Summerfield is a charming neighborhood in Briargate that was established in the early 1990s. It's located right next to John Venezia Park, which is one of the most prestigious parks in Colorado Springs. Surprisingly, this neighborhood made our list, given its location. Briargate is not known as being an "affordable" area.

Homes are large and need to be updated, which is most likely what's keeping the prices lower. Once this neighborhood gets a makeover from new homeowners, prices are bound to rise.
