Originally, the building served as a spa to those who first came to Manitou Springs for the lure of the healing qualities of Manitou’s mineral spring water and the fresh mountain air. The Manitou Spa Building was built in 1920 by the Manitou Springs Bath House Company, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Construction was supervised by Major John Fordyce of Little Rock, Arkansas, who was hired because of his previous experience in building bath houses. W. C. Maurice of Host Springs, Arkansas, who was considered to be the foremost expert in bath house construction in the country, was hired to assist. The building cost $350,000 to build, and when it opened for business on August 4, 1920 was considered to be a masterpiece of engineering.
The building shares some architectural features with the five-star Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs, including its polished Italian marble floor in the rotunda and its Italian tile roof.
In April 1999, the building was condemned and it stood as an eyesore until 2006 when Murphy Constructors of Colorado Springs Inc. purchased the building and transformed the historic building into a loft and retail combined space. The historic but dilapidated Manitou Spa was transformed into a mix of lofts, artist studios and a restaurant by the new owners of the Manitou Springs Landmark.
More than $3 million was spent to renovate the 85-yea-old downtown building condemned by Manitou officials in 1999 and listed as one of the state’s most endangered historic structures.
“This is a dream come true for me. I have always looked at this building and coveted it,” said Murphy, who worked for more than two years to complete the deal. “The spa is a hub of Manitou. I remember going there many times with my father and drinking from the Soda Spring.”
You will take pleasure in coming home to this east-facing loft, with it’s ceramic tile entryway and New York lifestyle feel. This loft offers large French doors leading to the private balcony with a beautiful view of the morning sky. The doors provide an abundance of natural light for both living area and the open-air kitchen. The gorgeous wood cabinets add a contemporary feel to the historic spa tiled floor underneath. Granite countertops complete the stunning layout. The 4X12 foot balcony invites you to relax and soak in the views or downtown activity below you. Or you can sit by the warm fireplace. A flatscreen television adorns the mantle of the fireplace.
A great place to enjoy the historic Manitou area attractions. Convenient walking distance to many great shops and several good eateries.
