Picture of the entrance to the Patty Jewett Golf Course in Colorado Springs, ColoradoThe neighborhood is named after the famous Patty Jewett Golf Course that is known for its perfectly manicured fairways and breathtaking views. The golf club was established in 1897, and the course was designed and built shortly after in 1898.

William Jewett purchased the property and golf club in 1910. 4 years after his wife, Patty, passed away, Mr. Jewett deeded the course to the city with the condition that the course would remain open to the public and be named after his wife.

But not everyone wants a huge house, and buyers sometimes find themselves looking east to the more modest homes in Patty Jewett.

Buyers are drawn to the fact that neighbors in this area know each other, there is an active, engaged sense of community, and the area has dedicated sidewalks (with people using them!) shaded by century old trees.

It’s difficult to believe you are the middle of a growing city when you get a moment to sit down on one of the front porches in Patty Jewett. You’ll actually hear birds singing and quiet conversations of neighbors passing by.

Home Styles

picture of craftsman home in Patty Jewett neighborhood in Colorado Springs, COShortly after the first wave of villas were built in the Old North End, the smaller homes in the Patty Jewett area popped up quickly to house service providers for the wealthy families in the Old North End. The first wave of new construction started in the mid 1880s and lasted through the mid 1910’s.  A second wave of construction picked up again in 1925 and continued through about 1955.

The first wave of construction included simple cottages (basically a one level version of a foursquare home), some Dutch revival and bungalows and many Sears Kit homes. The Sears Kit Homes were ordered from a catalog, shipped to the destination of choice, and assembled there by the owner and contractors.

Pride of Ownership

While homes in the area may have been fairly uniform when they were initially built, many properties have been modified and most have retained their original charming characteristics. In fact, pride of home ownership in Patty Jewett is strong. These older homes need lots of good care to update electrical work, plumbing or just to maintain the history embedded in them. Homes in this area range from 1000-2200+ sqft while most fall around 1400 sqft.

Some homes have been neglected to the point where they could not be rescued. Property owners have torn them down and constructed new homes. Other neighbors solved a space problem by adding an additional story on top of the original structure.

Garages

Attached garages are rare in this area. If there is a detached garage, access is either via garage alley or through the front of the property. It’s important to note that garages here can be in pretty poor condition. Many are small and are quite cramped next to each other, making garage access difficult.

Accessory Dwelling Units

There is an increasing number of accessory dwelling units (ADU’s) being added on top of garage structures.  These may serve as additional income from short term or long term rental. Generally zoning for this area is R2 allowing for 2 units on a lot.
