Manitou Springs, Colorado
Payback Point is easily one of the finest home sites in southern Colorado. Located on the edge of the beautiful mountain town of Manitou Springs (where space is at a premium), this 40-acre parcel is a rare find, offering ample room to build and unmatched views of Pikes Peak, Garden of the Gods, Colorado Springs and Manitou Springs itself. The property is minutes from town, but is a world away, offering privacy and tranquility, without sacrificing easy access to services and amenities. An existing foundation and septic tank are in place, and the property already has a domestic well, complete with a small water tower. (A domestic permit allows for household water use, watering livestock, and limited irrigation.) Utilities are available at the property's eastern line. This parcel would make an incredible, truly one-of-a-kind location for a custom home set against a quintessential southern Colorado backdrop, with abundant wildlife and immediate access to some of the regions best hiking. The property includes private stretches of several small canyons, borders city-owned open space, and is a short hike to Iron Mountain Open Space.
