At a 7,400' elevation, Snowbowl Mountain Hideaway has magnificent views of the San Francisco Peaks and sits nestled in rural surroundings. The forest area is located near the front of house and is literally within 1 minute walking distance to trails for hiking/biking.
This home has the best of both worlds. The back of house has a country-like setting which sprawls over 2 1/2 acres of grassy meadow terrain. Wildflowers crop up during the summer months where one hesitates to run the tractor to mow! The winter seasons bring wonderful snowfalls that leave picturesque views across the valley. A wooded area of ponderosa pines are scattered on the west side of the property. The side yard and all around the back of perimeter of yard is completely fenced in.
Here, one can sit and enjoy the sunrise with a cup of coffee on the deck/balcony in the morning, and cap off the day with a glass of wine in the evening - perhaps capturing the herds of elk journeying down from the nearby forest to graze in the distant pastures. There is a variety of wildlife in the area; elk, deer, coyote, skunk, badger, raccoon, and even black bear. Overall, one never tires of taking in the serene sites of the countryside and mountain views. Other homes sit sprawled out on one or two acre lots.
In the evening, the extremely clear skies make this is a wonderful place to star gaze and one doesn't have to wait long before making a wish - seeing their first falling star of the night!

About the owner: Profile picture: Unobstructed view of the San Francisco Peaks - picture taken from back deck area.
Why the Owner Chose Flagstaff: The location of our home is in a rural/country setting and has spectacular views of the San Francisco Peaks/forest areas. The four seasons in Flagstaff have allowed our family to escape the heat of the Valley during the intense summer months while giving us the opportunity to enjoy fall and winter activities. This house is located approximately one hour from the Grand Canyon, and one mile away from the entrance road to Arizona Snowbowl Ski area. Nearby hiking/biking/sledding for all to enjoy. The home is a short distance from downtown Flagstaff.(appr. 7mi).
The Unique Benefits at this House: One of the main benefits of staying at this property is getting away from the busyness and fast-paced city life. Here one can relax, experiencing the tranquility of bygone days. This is how life should be — definitely more down time and outdoor living. Of course I can't stress enough the million dollar views from this property!
