Rich history and unique setting
Manitou Springs is a quirky area on the West side of Colorado Springs, located between Pikes Peak and Garden of the Gods. With winding hillside streets and a downtown historic district full of locally owned shops and restaurants, Manitou Springs provides an eclectic vibe. Follow the roads to find multiple natural spring water fountains that have been historically loved for their healing qualities.
Given the location, many Manitou Springs homes boast gorgeous views of Pikes Peak or Garden of the Gods and offer great hiking within an easy walking distance. Manitou Springs is home to a vibrant artist community as well, which is reflected in the numerous galleries and local art displays.
Though most houses are from the Victorian era in the historic district, you can find many other ages and styles of homes in Manitou Springs. The more suburban communities of Crystal Hills, Crystal Park and Cedar Heights, notably, are upscale, ritzy departures from the funky vibe of Manitou Springs.
The typical Manitou Springs house is anything but – most homes are somewhat small, but packed full with character. You may find an artist bungalow for $165k or a brand new hillside custom home for around $1.5m.
