Property Description

A once in a lifetime opportunity to own one of the most recognized historic properties in Manitou Springs! The story begins in 1868 when Dr. William Bell of London, England and the founder of Manitou Springs, along with General William Palmer, an American civil engineer, soldier, and philanthropist, together founded Fountain Colony which was later renamed Colorado Springs. Shortly after, in 1872, Dr. Bell built the Briarhurst Manor for his family. The magnificent 14,000 SF manor-situated on 4.8 sprawling acres with bluffs as the backdrop and mountain views from the patios-boasts a rich history and showcases the finest architectural design of the time.Today, the Briarhurst caters to weddings, formal events and fine dining. No expense was spared on the interior finishes such as the rich wood wainscot panels (rumor has it a secret entrance lies behind one of these panels) and the seven fireplaces which all have custom woodwork that tells a story in each room. Mrs. Bells sitting room is the only fireplace with asymmetrical woodwork, while Oriels fireplace is a flat facade with a jetting over the mantle! The history, affluent touches and vivacious energy flow throughout the Briarhurst Manor. Ready for a new chapter, this historic property is seeking the next visionary who can bring new life, whether it be their familys legacy and starting their roots in the rich foundation, or the extraordinary philanthropist who can cultivate a place of retreat, events and gathering for non - profit souls. Once in a lifetime opportunity at your fingertips. Call us today for a private showing or enjoy the matterport virtual tour !
