The Mountain Star is perfectly integrated into the beauty, grandeur and overall experience of the region. Its location, orientation and design (windows, everywhere, like frames with fresh, new paintings throughout the day) afford guests with awe inspiring views of the San Francisco Peaks, sunrises, sunsets,...More

About the neighbourhood
The Mountain Star is a rare and amazing location. It has the beauty and openness of a remote mountain location yet is only 20 miles from the key regional center and resort town of Flagstaff. It is easily accessed via a well-maintained and beautiful, undivided 2-lane highway (AZ 180) that exists almost exclusively to provide thoroughfare to the Grand Canyon. The Mountain Star’s five acres are part of an area known as Kendrick Park, a 180-acre private land “island” in the middle of the Coconino National Forest (the largest stand of Ponderosa Pine in North America). The home itself is directly backed by the national forest. Hiking and biking opportunities abound and are as close as the front door!

I believe this home offers the most beautiful and panoramic views available in Northe...
