New home builds in Colorado Springs skyrocketed in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s. Out of this growth emerged a new neighborhood on the Eastern border known as Claremont Ranch. Bordered by Hwy 24 on the South and East sides, Marksheffel on the West side and Constitution on the North, Claremont Ranch is an easy commute to places like Peterson Air Force Base, Schriever Air Force Base and the Powers corridor. The Powers corridor exploded over the last decade featuring a bunch of great, new restaurants, movie theatres and shopping! Here, entertainment abounds with places like Sky Sox Stadium and Springs Ranch or Cherokee Golf Courses just minutes away.
Because of it’s Southern location, weather in Claremont Ranch is usually a bit warmer in temperature than the Northern areas of town. Typically, the further North you travel the higher in elevation you get. And at higher elevations, the conditions tend to be more extreme. While all neighborhoods in Colorado Springs do get snow, it tends to be less severe here at the South end...another great reason to enjoy this location!
Today, Claremont Ranch consists of approximately 1,800 single family homes and 700 townhomes. Builders include Hallmark Building Company, Richmond American Homes, Beazer Homes, Pulte Homes and DR Horton. Prices for a single family home range from $160K to $300K. Prices for a townhome range from $135K to $200K. With parks and schools nearby, this is a great community for families. Here, residents can enjoy a newer neighborhood which offers the peace of being outside the city, with the convenience of all amenities nearby.
