View Larger Map

The community of Woodmoor in the city of Monument, isn't really unique to Colorado. It is unique to most other urban neighborhoods. It's 10 miles north of Colorado Springs, and is located on the east side of I-25, and on both the north and south side of Hwy 105, and ends just west of where the trees end.

Roads in WoodmoorWhat makes Woodmoor unique are the trees.All the homes are on treed lots at least 1/2 acre. Every home is different from every other home; no two are alike. The neighborhood has old horse trails thru the area, that are now being used as a foot path. Not only are residents walking the trails, but wildlife are, too. It's a very friendly neighborhood, where neighbors wave to each other, stop and talk with each other, give each other a hand, and while driving also give others the right of way.

In the spring, the trees begin their pine cone production. Everything gets a thin layer of yellowish-green pollen on it. In the summer, the smell of the trees and the fresh air, with the birds singing hypnotic! The fall is the best season, with longer days, milder temperatures, and usually an early snow storm. Winter temps get down below freezing and snow storms are infrequent until around March.

Price ranges for single family homes in Woodmoorstart at $250,000, and go up to $700,000. With the recent recession homes have lost about 8% to 10% of their previous value. And most homes in the area sell for 97% of list price. Foreclosure are happening in Woodmoor at the same rate they are in the rest of El Paso County.

Hi Marianne, Woodmoor sounds like a great place to live.  I love your photo of the trees- it will be nice to see the pollen fly :-)
