Ranch Description

The 78.21-Acre Peak at Eagle Mountain is one of the most intriguing and awe-inspiring properties to be offered in the Pikes Peak region. The perfectly planned and positioned homesite atop Eagle Mountain provides up-close and unobstructed 360-Degree panoramas of Pikes Peak America's Mountain, Garden of the Gods, downtown Colorado Springs, Red Rock Canyon and easterly views that appear to reach Kansas. Land If you are seeking the ultimate in views, privacy and seclusion on a property bordering public lands with limited access and not located within an Hoa, this could be the one. Access to Crystal Park and subject property is gated and secured through the exclusive Crystal Park Homeowners Association and the subject parcel is directly bound by BLM and Pikes National Forest lands on the north and west, respectively. The adjacent public lands span thousands of acres, encircling Pikes Peak and beyond. This serves to provide a near perfect buffer against future development. Topography varies from level, open meadows to steep sloping hillsides containing prominent rock formations. The parcel is heavily forested with a combination of pine and aspen and the owners have completed extensive fire mitigation to approximately 40-acres of the larger property. All roads providing access up to the parcel driveway are maintained by the Crystal Park Homeowners Association, ensuring year-round access. As noted, the subject property is not located within the Crystal Park Association. The owner maintains legal right-of-way access through Crystal Park and pays annual dues for the access right.

Improvements Construction was started on an ideally sited home that was designed to capture the surrounding views with large windows and expansive decks along each elevation. The steel structure framing of the home is estimated at 90 complete and a full set of architectural plans are available. As designed, the home would include 7,493 square feet of finished living space and a 1,074 square foot attached garage. However, given the status of the structure, a new owner could easily redesign or expand the floorplan to meet individual needs. An overdesigned septic system has been installed and permitted along with a well requires re-drilling and 6,000 gallons of water storage capacity. All on-site construction materials crane, equipment, structural steel, decorative block, etc. are negotiable items.

A 5,400 square foot 45' x 120' metal Quonset building was constructed below the homesite and just off the main entrance to the parcel. Building features include a free-span design for ample storage, concrete slab throughout, automated overhead door, exterior lighting, large concrete parking apron, well and septic system. Both wells are approved to provide service to 3 single family homes, domestic livestock watering and irrigation of up to one acre.

The property has also been improved to include Over 1,400 lineal feet of paved concrete access drives and aprons 20' wide, 8 depth with reinforced rebar.

Concrete curb and gutter and related drainage infrastructure

Numerous concrete retaining walls with block accents and decorative pillars

Extension of electricity and phone service to both the shop and mountain top homesite

All combined, the owner's estimated investment, including structures, infrastructure, utilities and other improvements, total for approximately $2.0M.

Recreation Numerous recreational possibilities exist both on the property and the adjacent Forest Service trail, which is permitted for motorized use. Hike, bike or take the ATV in exploring the ever-changing vantage points the property offers. In addition, there are several nearby recreation-based attractions Cave of the Winds, Manitou Incline, Garden of the Gods Park & Visitors Center, Red Rocks Open Space, Seven Falls, Pikes Peak COG Railway as well as public access hiking trails.

Water/Mineral Rights & Natural Resources There are no known water or mineral rights.

Location The property is positioned above the historic town of Manitou Springs, adjacent west of Colorado Springs and accessed by Crystal Park Road. The closest amenities grocery stores, retail shops, restaurants, etc. are available in Manitou Springs and Old Colorado City. From the subject parcel, downtown Colorado Springs is an approximate 25-minute drive. The Colorado Springs Airport is about a 45-minute drive.
