Marksheffel is one of the newest areas in the region, and given its proximity to the popular Powers real estate area, it will continue to grow. Banning Lewis Ranch is one of the neighborhoods in the region and features great townhomes and single family homes along with an amazing community center and swimming pool. Claremont Ranch is located here as well, and can be a hotspot for foreclosures.
Marksheffel rd is the main thoroughfare through the area. To the North it connects with Woodmen Rd, making it an easy drive to shopping in Falcon or N. Powers, and further to Shopping on N. Academy and I-25. To the South, Woodmen connects to Hwy 24, which makes it an easy drive to Peterson AFB and Downtown Colorado Springs. It also connects to Hwy 94 and Schriever AFB.
Constitution Rd, N. Carefree, Barnes Rd and Stetson Hills Rd make Marksheffel easily accessible to the Powers Corridor just a few miles to the west. This area features literally hundreds of small shops along with large chain stores like Costco, Super Target, Lowe's Home Improvement Center, JC Penney's and Walmart. There is also an IMAX theater and Security Service Field, home to the triple-A Sky Sox professional baseball team and farm team for the Colorado Rockies. For the golfer, Springs Ranch Golf Club is also here as well as the smaller, 9 hole Cherokee Ridge course.
The Marksheffel area is a great place to live if you intend to enjoy the great Colorado outdoors as well. Just to the south is the new and as yet undeveloped Jimmy Camp Creek Open Space and to the northwest is the Stetson Hills Open Space. Corral Bluffs Open Space is less than a ten minute drive with spectacular trails through colorful sandstone monoliths. Also within a ten minute drive is Palmer Park, with some of the best mountain biking trails in the region.
The Marksheffel area is served primarily by Falcon School District 49, whose mission is to prepare students, in a safe and caring environment, to be successful, competent and productive citizens in a global society. The Banning Lewis Ranch public charter school is also here, offering K-8 students a dynamic college prep program that fosters intellectual curiosity and a thirst for discovery, while embracing traditional values as the cornerstone of a distinguished education.
With its great deals on homes, great location for shopping, entertainment and military as well as excellent schools, Marksheffel is a great place to jump on a foreclosure deal.
