Hello,
I lived in Colorado in the early 70's and am going to move back this summer. I spent 10 years in C springs as a child and just loved it. I am looking to live in a gated community. I am looking for a town house. i am of retirement age and would like a community with kind of retired people like myself. Mid 300 to 400 price range. Any help would be truly appreciated. Thank you!!!

Kissing Camels is one of the more up-scale areas in COS. From the real estate ads I've seen, single family homes there start in the 600's or so and go up quickly from there, but I believe there are some townhomes that might fall into your price range, especially with the current real estate doldrums. KC is definitely a gated community, with guards that won't even let you in to look at homes for sale unless you're accompanied by a real estate agent. I know, we tried, and were turned back. If that's the kind of environment you're looking for (we never went back; not our thing) then KC might be a good match for you.

The Broadmoor neighborhood is the old money part of town. There are new (a few years) town homes literally right across the street from the Broadmoor Hotel that look very nice. Most other things in the area will be old construction, including more than a few mansions, but lots of smaller places too and even some apartments - well mixed. I don't think much is gated over there.

Those THs near the Broadmoor are lovely, but are 4-5 times the OPs budget, as in this one I found on Zillow.

My mind is blown. I didn't think townhouses could get past 400k. The concept of having security guards to keep away normal people (including interested buyers) is a disgusting though. I had thought I might like the area, but I've certainly changed my mind.
