In the very heart of what has been recognized as the most beautiful locations in America lies a community in West Sedona known as “the Aerie,” a mere 1.5 hours from Phoenix, AZ. The Aerie community consists of approximately 100-acres between Doe and Cockscomb mountains with awe-inspiring surroundings, including an abundance of national forest. Residents at the Aerie enjoy panoramic views of Capital butte, Thunder Mountain, and Boynton Canyon, with long-distance views of legendary Cathedral Rock to the south, and the twinkling nighttime lights of the historic town of Jerome to the west. For buyers looking to relocate to Sedona, it is hard for other communities to match what the Aerie has to offer!


Luxury home experts, Ed Pennington and Jeanette Sauer, with Russ Lyon | Sotheby’s International Realty, in Sedona are listing an organically sophisticated luxury retreat early fall, 2017. This extraordinary three-bedroom, five-bathroom residence built in 2012 offers a 5,722-square foot main residence and 580-square foot guest casita. The home includes exceptional outdoor living spaces inspired by Sedona’s landscape, including a pool lounge with a negative edge infinity pool and spa, water feature and fire elements. The home will be offered at $5.5 million dollars.

For the connoisseurs of nature desiring serenity and privacy, this luxurious residence offers an escape from a busy and fast-paced lifestyle. Architect, Eric Brandt and Interior Designer, Divya Debra Barte meticulously designed this home to create open, airy, and serene indoor-outdoor living spaces. They placed everything comfortably within effortless reach.


This perfectly designed home offers entertainment for family and friends or just an intimate sanctuary for two. The overall design idea of the home is to not intrude on the living experience, but to be secondary to enjoying the Sedona sun, stars, and extraordinary views.

Exteriors and interiors integrate seamlessly by the great room’s 24′ wide sliding glass pocket door and provides a pool pavilion effect. The gourmet kitchen’s continuous skylight band extends outside over the outdoor kitchen and pool lounge, providing filtered or dramatic sunlight depending on the time of day. Past the fitness and game room, these same skylights provide glass cocktail tables on the rooftop deck. This magical roof deck is also the starlight theater – provided by the projection movie screen and the natural celestial bodies overhead.


Mechanically, the home uses the best of digital technology for operations, with near net-zero energy efficiency. High performance insulation, in-floor hydronic heating, solar heated hot water, and LED lighting reduce the energy demands. Geothermal wells provide heating for the pool and spa as well as the home’s heating and cooling. And all is powered from the large, roof-mounted, photovoltaic solar panels that are hidden from view. The home’s sustainable features and renewable energy systems enable a near net-zero energy use.

A steel-framed trellis for wisteria and jasmine connects the home to the guest casita with shade. The natural moss-rock cascade fountain provides a backdrop for the spa and a focal point for the master suite. Another fantastic wall fountain of glass and stone is at the Zen sun patio, located outside “her” home office. The massive front door distills the composition of the home into a simple, yet elegant entry: it is crafted of natural-edged planks of native mesquite wood that strongly frame transparent glass panels; which provide a preview of the majestic views through the home. Interior doors are vertical grain fir, cabinets are walnut and cherry. Flooring is predominately travertine inside and quartzite on the patios, along with walnut and integral colored, hand-polished concrete.

This location has proven to be the ideal vacation retreat for a couple with fast-paced, high-stress lives who need a sanctuary where they can truly slow down. For the nature connoisseurs who enjoy an unpretentious, luxurious lifestyle, this incredible home at the Aerie may be your perfect sanctuary in Sedona.
