ABOUT FALCON

Located outside of the Colorado Springs city limits, this growing exurb has been garnering a lot of attention in the past few years. With plenty of room to grow, there's been a tremendous amount of new construction communities developed in the area, especially since the mid-1990s. Once a quiet, far-reaching ranching community, the recent rapid growth in population has brought with it an abundance of new houses, retail centers, and schools, while still offering gorgeous, wide-open views of the countryside and sky that the area is most commonly known for. For more information regarding Falcon properties for sale or to organize a private tour, contact your Falcon real estate experts today.



FALCON REAL ESTATE ESSENTIALS

Real Estate Market

 Falcon real estate is especially great for growing families. Here you'll find a number of larger, gently used, or brand-new single-family houses situated on quarter-acre to half-acre lots. You will enjoy considerably large floorplans, offering up multiple beds and bathrooms, spacious living rooms, large kitchens, his and her vanities in the bathrooms, and much more. While each builder showcases something a little something different in the architecture of these homes, the styles found in this area are generally Traditional, with a mix of Ranchers, two, or three stories.

New master-planned communities are being constructed at the northern end of Falcon. The neighborhood to the north of Meridian Ranch Elementary School is being developed on a large scale. With great amenities such as schools, shopping, and dining just minutes away in the town center of Falcon, you'll have the country lifestyle within minutes of modern amenities.








As you follow Meridian Road to the north, turn right on Rex Road and you'll see new communities that are just waiting for you to pick that ideal spot for your house. On the south side of Rex Road, there are more affordable homes in a typical suburban neighborhood. These homes have about 4,000 square feet of living space, with 5 bedrooms and 3-4 bathrooms. These are perfect for larger families looking for a comfortable living space while still having room for guests.

On the northern side of Rex Road, you'll still find newer homes, but these are on an acre or so of land. These stately homes range in size and style because many of these properties are custom-designed homes. However, the rancher-style of the house is common in this area, with about 5,000 square feet of living space. The yards have minimal landscaping allowing for an open prairie feel. With expansive views of the mountains, these properties are a must if you are looking for a newer acreage home.
