Colorado Springs is a fast-growing, dynamic city. No longer Denver's little brother, the city has a whole lot to offer homebuyers through its eclectic, beautiful and diverse selection of neighborhoods.

Today, we'll just be scratching the surface as we feature these 4 Colorado Springs neighborhoods you should know about.


Briargate is consistently ranked among the most popular neighborhoods throughout the entire city of Colorado Springs. The large and largely residential area takes up a sizable swath in the Northern part of the city. More than a single neighborhood, Briargate now represents an entire growing segment of the city, with many sub-areas awaiting exploration.

Development began in earnest in the Briargate neighborhood in the early 1980s. Though largely complete, development does continue as new construction continues to push outward. What this has done is create a wonderfully diverse market of available properties - ranging from brand-new builds to established beauties in more mature neighborhoods.

The streets that make up the increasingly popular Rockrimmon neighborhood are epitomized by gentle curves and increasingly scenic views of the city. The winding roads and bluffs in this area of Northwest Colorado Springs have created a series of wonderfully charming enclaves of homes. None of the real estate is too far from one of Rockrimmon’s welcoming green spaces or the ever-present and epic rocky mountain views.

Rockrimmon is also conveniently located just west of the I-25, providing stellar access to both the incredible shopping and amenities throughout this area of the city, and into downtown (just minutes south). This convenient position has consistently made it a popular choice for growing families especially.

Black Forest

Black Forest provides a welcome antidote to the hustle and bustle of the city, and modern life for that matter.

Named for the stunning Ponderosa Pine forest that dominates this area, just north of Colorado Springs, Black Forest provides a decidedly more rural lifestyle. And this is just what many homebuyers are looking for. Properties tend be on the larger size, with many lots sitting on 5 or more acres. New construction development in recent years has also created a welcome range of options for buyers.

Two of the North Colorado Springs area's most popular parks lie within Black Forest. Black Forest Regional Park and Fox Run Regional Park combine to make up more than 560 acres.

If these things appeal to you, then the Flying Horse master-planned community located just north of Colorado Springs could be just what you are looking for. Developers of the Flying Horse community wanted to create something new for home buyers in the area - a complete, self-serving master-planned community, complete with everything you could need.

The real estate market is also wonderfully diverse, with properties ranging from beautiful resort-style cottages and ranch-style homes to larger single-family homes ideal for families, all the way up to impressive million-dollar-plus, luxury properties.
