Nestled between majestic Red Rocks and dramatic mesas, 55 Sanctuary Way is truly a sanctuary for the soul. This stunning architectural gem captures the beauty of both a mountain lodge and a graceful hacienda; surrounded on all sides with vistas of some of Sedona’s most iconic landscapes. Walking into the Great Room, you will be enchanted with the soaring 19′ ceilings, complete with stunning wood beams and wide open views to the Red Rocks. It is easy to imagine gathering around the impressive stone fireplace as you entertain your friends in the Living Room, or as you prepare a gourmet dinner in the well-appointed Kitchen.
Just outside the Great Room, an outdoor loggia beckons you out into a beautiful courtyard, where a splashing fountain crowns a grand lap pool, its blue water reflecting the beautiful Red Rocks all around. With drinks in hand, at sunset you can enjoy stunning plays of light over Courthouse Butte, Lee Mountain and Rabbit Ears. You might even catch sight of elk, deer, bobcat, coyote, javelina or mountain lion as they cross to forest service and park lands. The home is arrayed around the courtyard. Off the Great Room are two wings that also open out into the courtyard. The East Wing features the Homeowner’s Suite with custom built-in closet and en suite bathroom. Just off the master suite is a generously sized view patio complete with a hot tub, gas fire-pit, and plenty of space to lounge in the outdoors.
Also off the master is an upper deck that is the perfect place to take in a sunrise, a sunset, or the vastness of the cosmos in this perfect dark sky location. The East Wing also features a bright gallery style hallway streaming with light from tall, arched windows. Just outside the windows, you can see a relaxing side patio with a natural fountain that attracts all kinds of wildlife as it fills the area with the soothing sound of falling water. Back in the home, you will find an additional three bedrooms in the East Wing, all featuring en suite bathrooms and French doors leading to the pool-side courtyard. There is a bright and beautiful Family Room/Solarium, a perfect place to settle in with a good book or snuggle up for movie night.
The West Wing comprises two separate and well-appointed Home Office Suites, one with Lee Mountain Views, while the other takes in views of Courthouse Butte and Bell Rock. From this office you can also see the orchard, where peach and apricot trees blossom in the spring and hang heavy with fruit in the summer. The natural beauty and serenity of this home doesn’t end there. There is also a yoga/meditation room for some reflection after a long day. You can also head up the architecturally stunning view tower for truly magical views of the Red Rocks all around.
The three car garage in the West Wing features ample storage and a convenient utility sink. Outside on this vast 5.05 acre property, you can explore the fenced-in orchard and organic garden spaces. All the while you will be enjoying the sense of space and wondrous beauty of the gently sloping mesas and the behemoth Red Rocks all around you. The barn on the property was built in 2016, and is perfect to house your RV or for hosting a great family event. Embraced by the valley, surrounded by the splendor of Sedona, abundant with wildlife, this is truly a magical home that will capture your heart and your soul.
