Colorado Springs Real Estate: Abert Estates is located on the border of Northgate and Black Forest, just east of Highway 83 and Flying Horse Golf Course Community and to the north of Shoup Road – which leads right into the heart of Black Forest. New Breed Ranch is another new community of luxury custom homes found just to the east of Abert Estates.
Only 2 streets make up Abert Estates:
– Abert Way – Access from Hwy. 83
– Kaibab Court – Access from Shoup Road
Abert Estates is named after the Abert Squirrel – a large, black tree squirrel indigenous to Colorado. A close cousin to the Abert Squirrel is the Kaibab Squirrel– identified by a white tail… Thus the names of the streets of Abert Estates.
About 22 home sites make up Abert Estates – with homes ranging from about 4,000 s.f. to well over 6,500 s.f.. Most homes are low-profile ranch-style floor plans and offer 4-5 bedrooms, 4-5 Bathrooms and a 3 (or more) car garage. At least one home offers a 7-car garage.

The landscape of Abert Estates is beautiful – rolling hills, pastures and dense treed
areas as well. For being relatively close to I-25 and the amenities of Briargate and Powers Boulevard, Abert Estates is in a world of its own.
