We originally planned the house to be a Bed and Breakfast but one thing has led to another and it's time for us to move on. Our beautiful home originally was priced at $888,000 now reduced to $515,000 for quick sale. We have over $900,000 invested in it including the current mortgage. It's a bargain for the one who wants to call it home. If you're not ready to live here our renters would love to stay. Monthly rent can range from between $1800-2500 per month.
And where I build my house
~Osage Indian Proverb
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.
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.

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.

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
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.

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.
Foyer - complete with bay window opening out onto water feature and a centralized gas fireplace to warm the winter nights.
