Colorado Mountain living at 8400 ft. elevation, in the peaceful upper part of the Crystal Park gated community. It is a very scenic 20-minute drive from Manitou Springs - paved roads from gate to clubhouse area. The site is in an Aspen meadow, is relatively level, with some slope. Views of Bald Mountain, tall trees and Aspen trees, and a sliver of Pikes Peak are seen on this roughly rectangular, .70-acre lot. Private club house, trout-stocked lake, and pool nearby and in walking distance. Many hiking trails in adjacent National Forest, or tamer walking paths and trails in immediate vicinity. This lot is near the "Methuselah" tree - an ancient tree which has existed for many centuries and is thought to be the oldest tree in the Pike National Forest. Lot access possible from Eagle Mountain Rd. or off Methuselah on the currently existing pathway. Well (possibly shared) and septic system will be required. Electric is accessible. Lot has a beautiful large boulder formation to use in the design of your getaway. Crystal Park is about 2000 acres, with only 360 home sites allowed - half of them are built upon. You'll be surrounded by National Forest and open space. For emergency safety/evacuation, there are 3 helicopter landing pads. Crystal Park gated community has full time employees for snow removal and road maintenance. Fire protection is also on site with backup from Colorado Springs and Manitou Springs. School-aged students going to Manitou Springs schools are picked up at the gate where there is a nearby shelter for them for use during inclement weather. You will enjoy getting to know the history and flavor of this community over the years you live there. This lot is near the top of the park, and you'll decompress from the stress of the city below as you drive up to your beautiful mountain escape. Commuting time is quite a bit less than going from Colorado Springs to Monument or to Woodland Park - plus no frantic Interstate highway driving.
