The Manitou is a popular floor plan that is versatile in function while still offering open concept living and entertaining on the main level. Completed in a Mediterranean elevation, this home offers a low maintenance stucco exterior and arched window design. This plan takes full advantage of the Pikes Peak and Garden of the Gods views with the living room, breakfast nook, kitchen, master bedroom, walk-out basement recreation room and bonus room situated towards the back of the home with expansive windows and sliding glass doors that lead you to spacious decks and patios. This plan has been customized to accommodate either an extra bedroom or study on the main level in addition to a large formal dining room. This is a great home for downsizing couples looking for a plan with main level living while offering a spacious basement for guests and storage. The main level is 2,432 square feet. The basement finish option adds 2,072 square feet for a total of 4,504 square feet. This plan may be built with or without the basement and comes with a 3 car tandem garage. Walkout and garden level versions of the basement may be built depending on the lot selected. This particular home is sold. However, the neighboring lots and spectacular view is still very much available! We have a variety of plans that can be customized to meet your dream home specifications on lots with breathtaking views within the secure yet welcoming Cathedral Ridge gated community.

About the Interior Design of the Home:
The Manitou's interior design was a collaboration between the homeowners and the builder, resulting in a highly customized plan with unique finishes. As you enter, you will immediately appreciate 10-foot ceilings, warm hardwood floors and light hand troweled walls. The home includes a mix of bold and calming colors and textures. The energy of the marble kitchen countertop is balanced with the tranquility of a stacked stone fireplace nearby. The staggered kitchen cabinets, solid wood doors and glass enclosed showers in all bathrooms are just some of the features that reflect the high standards and overall value of this home. Front Range Stage completed the decorating for the homeowners who are world travelers but who will soon settle in Colorado Springs. As you travel from room to room, you’ll navigate through global influences that include a 1903 wall map desk, Mediterranean inspired design, comfortable furnishings and a cottage-style indoor garden room.
