Colorado seems to bring with it the desire for mountain living with the big caveat of being close to, or commutable to, Colorado Springs. Heading West out of Colorado Springs, the only highway access to the mountains is Highway 24. Hwy 24 takes you to the quaint mountain town of Woodland Park. With several “suburbs” in the area, mountain homes can be found for all types of needs. Well built Colorado homes with privacy, forest and live water are few not only because of the geographic area but also because properties with a creek, stream or pond are rare and highly sought after.
There are 34 current listings of homes for sale on an acre or more in Woodland Park. Of these 27 acre active with a median price of $399,900 and a high price of $1,999,950. Two of the 34 properties are sold and 5 acre under contract.
Woodland Park not only offers access to Colorado Springs but also offers a mountain living environment with gorgeous views of Pikes Peak and the outdoor recreation many are looking for. From hiking to trails to fishing in reservoirs and a lot of national forest in the area there is a plethera of fun in the immediate area.
