Flagstaff enjoys a wide diversity of housing for its 68,000 residents. Accommodations range from studio apartments to lavish homes in beautiful golf club communities. There are small tracks of land for cozy homes within walking distance to all your needs, as well as multi-acre homes, mostly just outside of the city.
The city abounds in fabulous assets, such as its convenient location, gorgeous mountain setting and small-town university feel with the amenities of a big city, making it a big draw both for those who call Flagstaff home 365 days of the year and second homeowners who come here in the winter for skiing or the summer to get out of the heat that pervades much of Arizona.
For seniors there are some notable housing opportunities. The Peaks Senior Living Community, in operation since 2000, has a campus on 40 acres of Ponderosa Pine forests featuring bungalow residences, a Lodge with independent and assisted living apartments, and a skilled care center with outstanding rehabilitation services. Other services also include 24-hour nursing staff on-site, weekly housekeeping, life enrichment/cultural programs and scheduled transportation. Another senior living facility, Flagstaff Senior Meadows, offers income-qualified apartment living for adults 62 and older.
The city also enjoys a wealth of architects, designers and engineers who can craft a new home or remodel existing structures. From log cabins to green living solutions and everything in between, Flagstaff has a wide range of professionals who can address your housing needs regardless of the size or complexity of the project.
And for those of you who purchase a “fixer-upper” or are looking to improve on the home you already have, the city has many excellent hardware stores to fulfill your DIY needs.
