The Retreat at Timber Ridge is a relatively new community in the Black Forest area of Colorado Springs. This neighborhood is east of Black Forest Road and north of Woodmen Road. Classic Homes has a number of limited 2.5 acre lots and will feature ranch and two-story homes. Vantage also is building in this new community and will have large 2.5 acreage lots, as well as larger 80’ wide lots. Some of the Vantage homes will even feature an RV garage.
Completed homes in this area will be priced from $500,000 to over $1,500,000. This is a good area to investigate if you are in the market to build a new home in the Black Forest.
Cathedral Pines, Forest Gate, Highland Park, Sylvan Meadows, Wildwood, and Woodlake are all other popular neighborhoods in the Black Forest area. There is some new home construction in both Cathedral Pines and Black Forest Reserve. Some new builds are the result of rebuilding after the 2013 Black Forest Fire. There are very few apartments, condos and townhomes in the Black Forest area.
People move to the Black Forest to have acreage and privacy, and it is common to have horses and other livestock in this area. Neighborhoods such as Park Forest Estates, Cherry Creek Springs, Spiritwood, and Latigo Trails cater to the equestrian lifestyle.
