Learn more about Southwest
This gorgeous area in the Front Range foothills was initially developed around the historic and world-famous Broadmoor Hotel. Southwest has beautiful neighborhoods of all ages nestled in every possible place of the foothills. The homes in Southwest come in all sizes as well – from small, quaint and rustic to large and stately. In between are custom homes and tract homes, both of which can both be found in this unique and established area of Colorado Springs. You’ll find buying opportunities here in all price ranges.
The shopping in Southwest is just as diverse as the homes. Elegant restaurants are mixed in with smatterings of mom and pop establishments and retail chains. Highlights you should note for the area include Ivywild, an old school that’s been converted to restaurants and the newly built Restaurant 1858 at Seven Falls. Owned by the Broadmoor Hotel, Seven Falls is one of the top attractions in the Pikes Peak region. This series of cascading mountain waterfalls is a stunning sight!
