Broadmoor resort living continues through the luxury housing development of Broadmoor Resort Community.
Located along the foothills south of The Broadmoor hotel, Broadmoor tradition is recreated in the Broadmoor Resort Community. This development offers homebuyers exclusive homes and homesites in a gated and secure setting.
Tom Schmidt, director of development for the Broadmoor Resort Community, said only 400 of the total 1,300 acres will be developed.
"The rest will be set aside as a wildlife park and preserve. And much of these natural areas will be accessible by an extensive trail system," Schmidt said.
Roger Hukle, Broadmoor Resort Community’s director of marketing, said the idea of the community is to offer a number of different lifestyle options while maintaining the integrity of the environment. Among the wild turkeys and other wildlife found on the grounds of Broadmoor Resort Community are flocks of wild peacocks. Past escapees from the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, these unusual neighbors have adapted well to the cool, dry Colorado climate.
"Most developers preserve pockets of natural landscape and parks within their communities," Hukle said. "We’re actually developing pocket communities within a preserve."
"A great deal of attention is also being given to the creation of an attractive street scape for the Broadmoor Resort Community," Hukle said. "This street scape will combine both natural and manicured landscaping, special street signage, and creative lighting to offer residents and their guests a unique and enjoyable driving experience as they enter or leave the community."
The initial phase consists of nine 1.5 to 2.5 acre estate lots. Also included are 54 villas and 10 resort homes. Construction on the model villa has already started. Hukle said the model should be open by March or April for preview.
The estate lots are heavily treed with expansive views in all directions. Sitting atop a bluff overlooking the city, they are priced from $275,000 to $500,000. Estate homes will all be custom built with different architects and builders, Hukle said.
The "Villas at Log Hollow" are unique townhomes set in a quiet neighborhood among hills and trees. These villas are base priced from around $300,000 to $360,000. Design features include stone and stucco elevations, wood floors on the main level, and large master suites.
"Baron’s Ridge" offers larger, detached resort homes on a peaceful cul-de-sac. As with the villas and estate lots, these homesites provide panoramic views. Resort homes will be priced from the $400,000s and up.
"This is a true resort community from the standpoint of its tie-in with the Broadmoor," Hukle said.
In addition to various home style options and on-site features, which include 24-hour staffed security, the Broadmoor Resort Community offers many other homeowner advantages.
Schmidt said, "New memberships to the Broadmoor Golf Club, to include the Broadmoor Spa and Fitness Center, are available only to residents of our community."
Residents will also have access to an "Absentee Owner’s Program" for families who travel frequently or who own second homes. The program offers special community activities and services such as on-site and off-site pet care, plant care, and landscaping services, Hukle said.
"Security and safety are becoming increasingly important in the selection of a neighborhood," Schmidt said. "This includes the ability for immediate response to fire alarms or medical emergencies as well."
Hukle said lifestyle, service, and security features are combined in the homeowner package that offers something for both younger and older families.
"We expect a good family mix," he said, "to include retirees and singles."
