Exquisite. Iconic. Historic. This property is more than just an elegant residence; it's a chapter of local history, a hidden paradise in the Ponderosa pines, a retreat from the chaos and stress of ordinary life, a gathering place for the people and pursuits that matter most. This site was selected and the original home built by Robert Norris, a local legend and the original Marlboro Man. Nestled at the edge of Black Forest and facing Pikes Peak, the property features every comfort and luxury. From the moment you come down the tree-lined drive through the automatic gates, you're enveloped with the peace and calm of the surrounding forest, the serenity of the Rocky Mountains and the quiet comforts of home. While Norris completed his home here in 1961, the current owners took the home down to the studs for a no-expense-spared remodel and update completed in 2008. The result is an exemplary nod to modern luxury: high-quality, low-maintenance finishes that are elegant, yet worry-free. The master suite and connecting bedrooms share a private courtyard with a fountain and outdoor fireplace, and overlook the home's tennis and pickleball courts, saltwater pool, grand lawns and lush landscaping. Guest suites include private bathrooms and easy access to the entertaining wing off the loggia, including a theater and an indoor four-season arena for ice skating or hockey in the cooler months, and anything else you can imagine year round: equestrian training, sports, a car collection or whatever your heart desires. You won't find a better location: just a couple of minutes from I-25 and Colorado Springs' newest dining, entertainment and shopping developments, an hour's drive to DIA, 40 minutes to Denver's major shopping, healthcare and business centers, 30 minutes to Colorado Springs Airport.
