About the Property

2400 Sq.feet 4 Beds 3 Baths Backing To Nat'l Forest

Ten minutes from the freeway up the mountain and Fourth Street, right in town. Kitchen & Dining has elevated views of the National Forest! Raised back deck oversees grassy fenced & gated yard - very private. Multi-mile views of pine trees and the valley down below. Park in the big driveway, well -lighted, enter the front courtyard & breezeway. You will immediately be looking at Mt. Elden to the north through the large front windows. Enjoy the vaulted ceilings, remote controlled skylight, the large stone GAS remote-controlled fireplace, and expansive wood-beamed vaulted ceilings. Relax right there on leather couches, love seat/chairs, enjoy the new flooring and large HD tv. Enjoy the hi-speed wireless, Blu-Ray and iPod sound dock, or head into the kitchen. New fridge w/icemaker, gas cooking, new floors, plenty of counter space and well-appointed kitchen are yours to enjoy! Dine from the breakfast bar while you enjoy the mile-plus views that look down through the trees. Nearly 20 feet of windows just from there! Enjoy the large gas BBQ on the back deck. There is a firepit, inside the fenced area, at the corner of the grassy yard if you want to enjoy the crisp clear stars at night "out in the woods" with no neighbors behind you. Head south - and down- out the backyard, through the trees, further down the hill to the schoolyards, playgrounds, ballfields and b-ball hoops and sport-courts, all buffered by 60-foot pine trees and Aspens. Downstairs walkout basement has its own large TV, Blu-Ray, game/livingroom, air hockey and its own bed and shower. Master Suite w large bath up (first level) and Master bed/bath down, plus 2 guest bedrooms on first floor. Entire home has been recently re-carpeted and re-painted thru-out. New roof & insulation & windows keep it cool in the summer and warm n cozy in the winter: Brand new furnace, remote control Fireplace, 220v baseboard heaters down - you can easily control the cool and warm in all locations. We have three (3) mountain bikes in the garage to hit the trails (right up the hill on Mt. Eldon, no driving!) or just go 5 minutes west on bikes and you are in HUGE Buffalo (city) park with it's own trails. ALL RIGHT OUT THE DRIVEWAY! Winter means 15 minutes to sledding, less than 10 minutes to (indoors) Jay Lively Ice Rink, 20 minutes to Arizona Snowbowl Ski Resort. Or just play in the huge yards, hills and woods behind our house! We call it Camp Caribou, you will call it HOME and return again and again!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Both of us are from the midwest and fell in love with all Flagstaff has to offer. Our kids went to NAU and ASU so we know what the town offers - we are outdoors people, love Wupatki, Walnut Canyon, Lake Mary, putzing around downtown, Nordic cross country, sledding with the kids. Up here a week in the spring/summer /fall, you should do a day trip to Grand Canyon and to Lake Powell. After 31 years traveling AZ, Flagstaff is the perfect getaway spot for us, not a lot of people but plenty to do. Or just read on the back porch, have a glass of wine and listen to the wind in the trees!

Why the Owner Chose Shadow Mountain (Flagstaff, AZ, USA):
We always experience a sense of true relaxation and love the fresh air and pines. This is the forest and mountains in the middle of town. Very chill, kickback and lazy/cozy place to get away. Read "about you" and you'll get it....

The Unique Benefits at this House:
On our South-side backyard, we buffer the National Forest, and below that is a grade school and junior high with playgrounds and ball fields well below us to the South. Our lot is nearly twice the size of others around us and very private and relaxing, with 2-mile views off the back deck and kitchen. Front living room has large windows that view Mt. Eldon, which is immediately to our North. And yet - this place is right in the middle of the city of Flagstaff. You want to get a gourmet meal, take in a movie or a seasonal event, you come and go in less than 20 minutes!
