East of the Sun/West of the Moon is the perfect vacation for the outdoor enthusiast or artist. It is very private and quiet. It has a FULL panoramic view of the Peaks. It is located on 12 acres. This is a great home base for the Grand Canyon, Sedona, Flagstaff and Williams.

Our property is located in Parks, which is between Flagstaff and Williams. It is located one hour from the Grand Canyon, 25 min. to Flagstaff, about 50 min. from downtown Sedona (35 minutes. to top of Oak Creek).

The summers are high 70's-mid 80's with monsoons in the afternoon. Night temps drop into the 50's. Fall is fantastic, low 70's with temperatures dropping at night. The trees start to turn and it is a secret getaway for fall colors!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About the owner: Brian and Louisa after a snowmobile ride! Brian milled all the wood for the house, a true piece of craftsmanship.

                      Why the Owner Chose Flagstaff:
                      This area is beautiful and the feeling that you have the whole planet to yourself is right out the door. You can watch the sun and moon rise and set. Are you into astronomy? This is the place for you!!! Do you need to retreat and recharge? This is the place for you!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The best part about this place are the views! Watching the sunrise, moonrise, and sunsets are fantastic. A common statement from our guest's is, ''your photos don't do our house/property justice.' The wildlife here is equally as grand. On any given day you may see elk, antelope, eagles, blue herons, hawk, coyotes, and fox. Because it adjoins forest service land you can cross country ski, snowmobile, hike right off the property. Babysitter/nanny on site with a degree in child dev., CPR and First aid certified. Go out to dinner and enjoy yourself!
