This is your chance to own a beautiful home the Coyote Springs neighborhood. There are no other homes available for sale in this area, the other listings are home sites/lots.
Lot has the most spectacular view of San Francisco Peaks. The reason why this lot was chosen when it was the most expensive in Coyote Springs was because it had the most spectacular view of San Francisco Peaks. The house was sited on the lot in such a way that every window in every room would give the sense of privacy and/or spectacular views.
Best lot in Coyote Springs. Located in the city limits, available are city water, city sewer, fire protection and natural gas. I don’t need to emphasize the scarcity of 2 ½ acres this close to town with public utilities. Downtown Flagstaff is easily accessible in a few minutes by car, bus, or nearby Urban Trail.
View Will Not Change. No building allowed behind the house to obstruct the view because of 200 ft easement
Enjoy the beautiful access that meanders down to Coyote Spring, which is adjacent to this lot.
With Architectural Approval additional buildings can be erected around the house and the garage. Nothing will ever be built behind the house, there is a diagonal lot that is part of the neighbor’s lot, beyond that where the run off pond is, there is a 200 ft easement, this will never change (no view obstruction). Beyond that is the Peaks Retirement Community. Privacy surrounded by woods is never going to change
CUSTOM DESIGN by Christopher AlexanderAlexander Studio LLC
Christopher Alexander is a sought after and well respected architectural designer of custom residential homes in Northern Arizona. His designs take advantage of natural light and the beauty of the landscape while working to minimize the impact that the residence has on the land. His beautiful house designs can be seen all over high end communities: Forest Highlands, Linwood Heights, Lockett Ranches, Pine Canyon and Coyote Springs.
In Coyote Springs he also helped design two other homes as well as working on the Colton House, the historic home of the founders of the Museum of Northern Arizona. The Colton house has been featured in “American Bungalow”
Colton House design elements incorporated into home:Fireplace screen designed by Southwestern Metal Artist Howie Hearn Exposed interior logs Dutch-style wood doors with Hopi elements Vigas and Latillas ceilings in the living room Upstairs Meditation room with balconyCoved ceilings and arches giving a softer appearanceHopi symbology on the metal gate outside, Hobobo meaning “Wind of the Spirit” coming off of the mountain
The Colton house (On the national register of historical homes) has some of the same arches and round corners in it that were integrated here, that style gives the home a soft look, along with the coved ceilings.
Completed in 2006 by Salvador Unale US Building Company
U.S. Building Company has been building fine custom homes in Flagstaff for more than 20 years. Founder Sal Unale takes pride in the fine craftsmanship and impeccable quality of his projects. Featured in Southwest Style Magazine.
This home is designed with six solid Loewen Glass perimeter doors and three wood Hopi style doors that is inspired by Colton House. All the Loewen doors are fitted with German hardware. Very safe, with the ease of quick exit in mind. There is forced air heat, three furnaces, and two in the main house one in the studio. The home has ductwork installed for air conditioning if desired. For the art lover, there are art niches throughout the house.
SINGLE LEVEL/DISABLED ACCESS FRIENDLY
Everything was built wider for wheelchair accessibility, the bathroom was designed wide enough to wheel into as well as the shower, the bathrooms are large and all the toilets are higher than usual. There is accessibility by a wheelchair through the Master Bedroom with no steps at all. The only stairs in the house are going up to the Meditation Room.
The floors are very thick Old Growth Hickory from Carlisle Wide Plank Floors in New Hampshire . It has a Tung Oil finish that is very easy to touch up and re-do with just tung oil which penetrates and gets a honey look. The oil goes into the wood and gives it a nice sheen. It is ¾ inch solid Hickory, an exceedingly hard wood) tongue and groove over a plywood subfloor. It could conceivably be re-finished numerous times without changing the quality!
The tile on the floor is handcrafted Tecate tile not the usual Saltillo. The Tecate contains more variation.
The hallway catches the afternoon sun beautifully through the large windows. The wooden window seat has four big drawers under it. A nice hidden storage area. The wood is Cherry.
All of the window coverings were from Heaths (on 4th Street) the custom blinds go up and you can’t even tell that they are there. And when there's a really cold night, they can be put down and it makes you feel warm and cozy.
The windows are Loewen Windows (Amish founders out of Canada). The window casements are fashioned from Douglas fir. The most expensive window package was chosen, the glass is thicker and the space in between is also thicker. That is the reason so many windows can be used in the home in a climate like Flagstaff. This home very well insulated from the windows to the walls.
When you get to the living room, it has all these soft edges, arches and the beams. There are Vigas and Latillas, like they have in the Colton house. The Colton House was an integral part of the design element. This house is like a cross between an arts and crafts lover’s home and US Forest Service lovers home. Quintessential Flagstaff!
The stone on the fireplace is Malpais rock from Kelly Canyon. Rick Morris, a well-known Flagstaff stonemason and artist created the fireplace, a true work of art. Each piece carefully placed like a puzzle, Lichen still on the stones. The fireplaces are Isokern Wood Burning Fireplaces. The fireplace screen, designed by local metal artist Howie Hearn, is a design that was also in the Colton House.
Howie also designed the chandelier in the dining room. It was created with candles, but can easily be reworked with electric lights; there is a dedicated light switch for that purpose.
The counters in the kitchen are soapstone and butcher block; even the sink is soapstone from Vermont. All of the appliances are part of the WOLF/Sub Zero/Asko collection. The oversized and illuminated pantry has a coffee bar. When you are cooking, the cooktop faces the beautiful view. There is a nice bar that separates the kitchen from the dining room hiding the guests from any kitchen clutter. The microwave is nicely hidden behind a custom designed cabinet.
In the bathrooms, all of the toilets are Toto and all kitchen and bathroom fixtures are Grohe, priced at a minimum of $1000 per fixture. The guest bathroom is decorated with the very popular subway tile. All of the cabinetry in the bathrooms was designed by Gary Anderson and made of very beautiful rich Cherry Wood. The Master bath is decorated with Porcelain Tile and Granite Counters.
Both guest bedrooms are ample sized, each containing solid core “pocket doors” with cherry finish, for even more space conservation consideration, the closets are also generous.
Because each spare room contains a closet, with minimal changes it could be considered four or five bedroom home. The front office has a closet as well as the Meditation room.
Climbing the only stairs in the house, you find the Meditation Room, having it’s own redwood balcony, it is just you and the Mountain! Lose track of time enjoying the sights and sounds of this wonderful spot!
The Meditation Room has it’s own cedar closet. There is furnace access from inside the closet; additional access is in the outside mechanical room.
The Master Bedroom was built on the East end of the house because the owners felt they wanted to enjoy the most spectacular view each morning upon awakening.
Perfect for a home business, the office was conveniently built a short walk from the front door. Very cozy with it’s own Isokern Gas Log Fireplace and private patio, the idea was that clients could come in the front door and go right in to the office without needing to go into the rest of the house. Convenient with it’s own bathroom and shower.

There is a Hopi symbology on the gate called Hobobo, meaning "Wind of the Spirit" the wind comes off of the mountain, which can be good or bad, but either way it symbolizes the Breath of God.
ARTIST - PHOTOGRAPHY STUDIO/ GARAGE
An artist/photography studio attached to the garage was built with the idea that in the future, it could be converted to a caretaker’s home. There is a dark room that could one day easily be converted to a kitchen if needed. The half bath was designed to be converted to a ¾ bath, ready to go with a Rinnai tank-less hot water heater. Most of the home is built on a crawl space for added comfort.
The heated Garage is oversized with solid wood doors and room for a shop area and ample storage; including pull down stairs with added attic storage.
The roof is Vail Titan Select from Custom-Bilt Metals from Chino Calif. It is extra thick and fabricated to appear like cedar shake. Beneath the shingles is an underlayment so strong that if a burning log fell on the house, self-ignition should be prevented. A normal metal roof will self ignite from beneath the roof.
For the exterior, Hardie Plank was chosen, much more expensive than mere wood. Hardie Plank siding and fascia is fire/insect resistant. If there was a fire, virtually nothing would burn outside, with all the stone, metal, even the soffits are covered with Hardie Plank!
Malpais stone around base of home adds additional fire prevention, trees thinned and cleared and fire sprinkler system in ceiling of main house. City of Flagstaff fire protection.
LANDSCAPED GARDENS WITH WATER FEATURE
Extensive exterior landscaping with waterfall in rear of home, designed and installed by Warner's landscaping. Drip system for plants.
There is a large split rail fenced-in area in the backyard for dog lovers. You can let your dog roam with no worries.
Hwy 180 turn right at Coyote springs sign/ E. Creekside Dr. Follow Creekside up to the first cul-de-sac on the left which is Museum Trail.
