About the Property

4-5 bedroom, 3 bathroom bordering national forest with stunning mountain views

Experience living in a sustainable house on 5 acres, in a custom home (built in 2010) designed to use natural lighting, heating and cooling, solar electricity, and water harvesting. Winter heating is passive solar supplemented with wood stoves (one on each floor, firewood provided). Homestead with greenhouse (produce as available); owner-builder happy to discuss ideas for your own home.

Peaceful rural location 12 miles northeast of downtown Flagstaff, at the end of a cul-de-sac, bordering thousands of acres of national forest, for hiking, biking, horseback riding etc. Outdoor patio with Weber barbeque and chiminea. Hardwood and tile floors throughout. Wifi, flat-screen for Netflix (no TV). Plenty of off-road parking. Pets and children welcome, with enclosed back yard (1/8 acre).

Four bedrooms (sleep 8) plus children's loft with two additional twin beds (sleeps 2). First floor has a king bedroom, bathroom with shower, and very large open-plan living room/kitchen/dining area (great for large groups), with fully equipped kitchen, wifi, and TV screen for Netflix. Second floor has a master bedroom with en suite bathroom, two queen bedrooms with a shared jack-and-jill bathroom, and a children's loft, accessed by a spiral staircase, with two twin beds (68" ceiling). All three second-floor bedrooms have balconies with stunning views of the San Francisco Peaks Sunset Crater, Mt. Elden, and the national forest. Second floor has an additional living room, with wifi, and TV screen for Netflix.

Watch the sunset and moonset over the San Francisco peaks. Dark night skies make viewing of the Milky Way a nightly event. Wildlife include deer and elk, prairie dogs, coyotes, birds (including occasional bald eagles).
