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 natural grasses 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 heading 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!
