Located due east of Colorado Springs near Shriever and Fort Carson military bases is the Ellicott/Yoder/Rush area. This is a beautiful 'off-the-beaten-path' kind of area with affordable homes and incredible views of Pikes Peak in the distance. This is a great area for someone who wants to live away from the city but not too far or someone that needs some space for horses or ATV’s, or someone who simply wants an affordable home in a quiet and peaceful area. The median sale price of homes in this area is $167,500 and has a population of 1,131.
Ellicott is the biggest town in the area and it has a couple small cafes, a grocery store, gas station and a bank. Nearby is the Corral Bluffs Open Space area which has many miles of trails that wind through colorful sandstone monoliths.
Hwy 94 is the main road through the area and provides access to Schriever AFB in just minutes. Farther west Hwy 94 connects with Hwy 24 and Peterson AFB and Downtown Colorado Springs beyond. The Ellicott Highway runs north and provides access to Falcon area shops and restaurants.
Ellicott/Yoder/Rush still has a sense of the old west in its rural setting with cattle ranches and grasslands topped by the rugged beauty of Pikes Peak on the horizon. For a great place to get away from city-life and still be within a twenty minute drive of city amenities check out the Ellicott/Yoder/Rush area.
