An ExtraOrdinary Space for ExtraOrdinary People

~~~
Welcome! Our home was designed and built on feng shui principles; the energy here is very nurturing and supportive! Those who stay here are respectful, quiet, friendly and private. We live lightly in our relaxing, beautiful and healthy environment.  
We originally planned the house to be a Bed and Breakfast but one thing has led to another and our beautiful home is now For Sale at $649,000.

"Where I am, I build my house;
And where I build my house
All good things come to it."
~Osage Indian Proverb
Here's the view to the north from most spots in and around the house.

The entire house is built to honor the red rock and mountain views that surround it. We have used comprehensive feng shui to create a space that will nurture and provide positive energy and comfort.
Not only this, but we have solar panels nicely hidden from view on the rear roof of the garage which keep utility bills to a minimum. We will be posting a link to share the actual monthly costs with you to show you how efficient this home truly is.
The house is warm in the winter and cool in the summer because of the solar panels, passive design and feng shui considerations.

Master Bedroom Suite

The views are awesome from the Master. The casement window brings in the southerly breezes and this suite is designed to be a healing space. The balcony along the north is the perfect place for a morning cup of coffee or an evening of stargazing.


This is the view of the door from the bed. The corner kiva fireplace keeps the room warm on chilly nights. Behind the entry door is a small alcove that contains a small closet. Above the alcove is an archway niche space with outlet and cable TV hookup. The door off the alcove leads to the walk-in closet.






This is the north end of our Master Bath with a luxury jetted Kohler tub big enough for two and a walk in shower made of natural stone and tumbled marble. Adjacent to the shower is a granite-topped double vanity and the toilet is hidden behind a partial wall. The space was designed so guests can not only view the red rocks from the tub and the shower, but from the toilet as well! Come and you will see how!


Stepping into the dressing room/walk-in closet brings you to a door that leads to the Master Deck. A daybed runs along the perimeter wall where you can read a book or sit and meditate on the red rocks.


The Master Bedroom is a very peaceful and healing space. The space was designed with a very neutral color scheme so as not to compete with the amazing red rock views.

Koi Suite

The downstairs Master Koi Suite could easily be in-law space. It is designed on the first floor for this reason. It has a large shower with multiple jets and handheld shower. It was also specifically designed for easy access to the outside with no need to go up or down stairs to come and go from the house. This room also makes a great home office, treatment space or studio.


The Koi Suite has its own patio with huge red rock views. Being the north side of the house has its benefits -- it is the dimmest, coolest and quietest space in the house in the heat of the summer and is cozy and quiet all year round.


As you enter the room, look to the left and see the patio doors to the outside and views galore.
To the right, the entry to the koi bath.


There are many reasons why we chose the colors, textures and materials incorporated into the home.  All designed with Feng Shui in mind.  The sink in the Koi bathroom, for example, represents the meeting of earth and water.  It looks like the sand of the beach as the water has draws the grains towards the sea.  

Vanity topped with tumbled stone.

To the left of the vanity is the large walk-in shower made of tumbled stone and a high-tech multi-jetted Hansgrohe shower system.  Handrails for safety --While it was not designed to be handicap-accessible; this is the best room in the house for anyone who needs safe and easy access.

Adjacent to the bedroom is the parlor/sitting room. A pair of solid wood pocket doors separates the two rooms. This is the ideal room for an artist because of the consistent northern exposure. Built-in bookshelves and a comfortable window seat with awning window provide a light and airy 
reading space.

Here's a close up of the view from the window seat.

This is a view from outside of the patio which surrounds the Koi Suite. It's the perfect shaded place to spend a warm afternoon at Wild Horse Mesa.

No matter what time of day no matter what season, there is a patio or balcony designed to harness the warmth of the sun or to protect you from it.  This is a true all-season home with passive and active solar design.

Mountain Loft Suite


The Loft Suite is the perfect example of how passive solar design can make a space comfortable and efficient at all times of the year. It harnesses the sunlight in the cooler months and protects guests from the rays in the hot seasons. When you enter the room, you will no doubt find the curtains swaying in the high desert breeze. When you shut the lights off for the night, be prepared to see a sky full of stars and room bathed in moonlight.



The Loft has its own private entry and can be rented out as a separate apartment. Or if you prefer, you can live in the loft and rent out the rest of the house! The wall in between the house and the loft is a 2x6 wall to promote quietude and privacy as well as to provide a sense of separation from main household activities.


An adjoining alcove can be curtained off for privacy. The alcove can be used for an additional sleeper, workspace or meditative sun space. Also could be converted easily into a small eat-in kitchen.



Off the sleeping area is a private, spacious Dressing area. Off the dressing area is our Rainforest Marble bath, complete with Jetted Jacuzzi tub. Soak in it and soak in the red rock views, including Bell Rock!


The Loft is like a small apartment with lots of choices for being comfortable. Here is the view from the bed towards the alcove space. The alcove itself is like an atrium, surrounded by glass and filled with the views of trees, skies, the mesa to the east and loads of birds and other wildlife outside. Patio doors serve as a private entry which leads to a large deck and stairs that lead to the patio and BBQ area below. There is also a phone jack and cable hook-up in the Loft.

North View from the Loft Deck


South View from the Loft Deck

Perhaps this is our favorite "room" in the house. Directly off the Loft Alcove, the balcony is a special exterior space with woodburning fireplace overlooking the southern views. Watch the sun come up with your morning coffee; watch the full moon rise over the mesa as it lights the star-filled sky. Passive Solar design at its best! In the cooler months the sunshine streams in to warm you; in the hot months, the sun is high above the house, allowing guests to enjoy Sedona's temperate climate almost every day of the year.


Since our camera can't capture the beauty of the nighttime views from the balcony, we will have to settle with the late afternoon views. The Mingus Mountain range to the south is everchanging and some nights the lights of Phoenix cast a glow behind it. Come and experience this sacred and special place.

Second Floor: Extended Master Bedroom Suite


The Heart of the second floor is the Den complete with large screen SONY TV, gas fireplace and Infinity In-Home music system.
This is the view looking across the Den towards the Loft space.
The small room that adjoins the Master Bedroom and Den is currently being used as a walk-in closet. It is simply another versatile space depending on the needs and purpose of the house and its residents. It has been a massage treatment room, reading room and guest sleeping room.

A kitchenette/wet-bar adjoins the den. It has a GE monogram refrigerator with ice maker, handmade copper bar sink and Rainforest marble. Beside the kitchenette is the Laundry Center which also houses the in-home sound system.

Strategically placed out of view, solar panels feed energy back into Arizona Public Service, reducing utility costs significantly. Average utility costs per month run $100.
