Housing in Snowflake is as diverse as the region itself. From small homes inside the town, to sprawling ranches with multi-story homes in the thousands of square feet, you’re sure to find a house that will suit your lifestyle. Architectural styles range from southwestern ranch to turn-of-the-century block masonry.
Sharing the same elevation as many of the more popular areas of Arizona, Snowflake is considered by some as “recently discovered” for its safe streets, an outstanding education system, and neighbors who care. Geographically located amongst the most popular attractions in the southwest, be it the cool Ponderosa pines of the White Mountains to the south, or the signature southwestern scenery of the Native American reservations to the north, Snowflake is growing in popularity both as a retirement community or a second home.
Unlike some of the more popular areas of Arizona, Snowflake sits atop the Coconino-Sandstone aquifer, one of the largest aquifers in the southwest, ensuring that plentiful water will always be available to support the growth.
