Immerse Your Senses in the View
Sedona is one giant colorful palette where homes and businesses appear as organic parts of the surrounding cliffs, woods and red rock mountains. Even better, Sedona AZ homes are designed to bring the outdoors in so that at every angle the landscape's majesty is within your immediate view. At sunrise, light streams in, ever changing across walls and floors as the day progresses. And your home and yard become your personal vacation resort.
People from throughout the world come here for the stunning natural beauty. They come to escape. They come for the privacy. They come for the glorious four-season weather. They come for mental and spiritual renewal. And we all do everything we can to keep Sedona the jewel of the Southwest so that visitors and residents alike can relax and enjoy it.
Sedona's breathtaking rock formations have inspired artists of all mediums, including the late Walt Disney, who named his most famous ride at Disney Land after the rock formation known as Thunder Mountain. Further enhancing these geological masterpieces is Coconino National Forest, which surrounds Sedona real estate. The forest is over one million acres of varied terrain and wilderness preserve for your hiking, biking, equestrian and aerial exploration and adventure.
Historically, homes that open onto the national forest or state land are in greater demand. This is because of the privacy and views they offer and the free access they give to experience nature's wonders right outside their doors. Magnificent junipers, firs, pines, desert succulents, marigolds, poppies and datura engage flora enthusiasts. Over 150 bird species enchant watchers. And wildlife such as mule deer and javelinas keep camera takes rolling to the sound of wolves howling in the distance. In these and other Sedona homes, even the most mundane daily routines have luster because of the surroundings.
Looking at homes for sale in Sedona, you find gated communities, luxury homes, golf course homes, condominiums, patio homes and expansive properties offering as much open space as possible within the city limits.
