Well-Kept and Award-Winning Manufactured Home Community in Colorado Springs, Colorado Attracts Retirees
located on the eastern edge of pretty, conservative Colorado
Springs, Colorado (about 60 miles south of Denver), is a quiet, manufactured home
community for those 55 and above. All residences here
are single-family, ranch-style and come in six different
floor plans. Colorado Springs is a very livable city
in a beautiful setting at the base of the majestic Rocky Mountains, and from the front door
of nearly any home, one can see the Front Range and imposing
Pikes Peak not far
in the distance.
make Antelope Ridge a good choice for retirement, but one in
particular is the affordable price of the homes here. These
are not site built homes, which is why prices are at least $100,000
less than for comparable houses elsewhere in the city. They
are, though, well-constructed (most newer manufactured and/or modular homes are
nearly indistinguishable from site built homes), and the community
is well- maintained by an on-site staff. The smallest
model has 1,285 square feet, 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. A middle priced unit comes with 1,334 sq. ft.,
3 bedrooms, 2 baths and has a den option with French doors opening
off the living room. The largest unit has 1,521 sq. ft., 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and vaulted
Standard features on all models include an attached
2-car garage, a wood deck, automatic garage door openers, complete
landscaping, all GE appliances, all window coverings, oak cabinetry
and an automatic sprinkler system. Buyers can also choose from
upgrades such as jetted bathtubs, air conditioning, ceramic floors,
dual ovens, fireplaces, custom flooring, skylights, upgraded
appliances, fencing and patios. Homeowners lease the land upon
which their homes rest, and leases are for 35 years.
Monthly fees include property taxes, access to community amenities,
snow removal and maintenance of roads and infrastructure; owners are
responsible for maintaining their own yards and homes.

include a lovely 4,000 sq. ft. community center with a great room
(and a wall of windows with views of the Rockies), two heated pools,
a 24-hour fitness center, a bocce ball court, a full kitchen and a
business center with internet access. This really is the focus
of development, and a broad range of activities, from movie nights to
morning coffee get-togethers, bring neighbors together.
selling point here is that all dwellings are owner-occupied, and covenants are in place to ensure that the development remains a safe
and attractive place to live. In fact, Antelope Ridge
has been participating in the Colorado Springs Parade of Homes for
the last six years and has won a number of design awards.
buyers will also be glad to know that the community is small pet
friendly (roughly 40 lb. limit).
