Arizona Destinations

Arizona has a lot to offer in new housing design and fabulous culinary experiences. Our team took a little road trip up north to visit Sedona, Flagstaff and historical Jerome! We had the opportunity to explore the comforts of both beauty and bounty in this wonderful region we call home.

Awe…the art of cooking!!! We had the pleasure of enjoying not one but TWO awesome cooking schools in Northern Arizona. Simply amazing is merely a simple statement when describing the ambiance and food at The Inn on Oak Creek. This culinary delight is nestled within the warmth and coziness of one of Sedona’s most romantic and private Inns. With spectacular red rock views and water front elegance, you’ll find some of Sedona’s finest chefs known for their creativity and flair. Another splendid find is The Seasoned Kitchen, located in historical downtown Flagstaff. Here you will discover unique gadgets, cooking accessories, small appliances and more. Along with the cool kitchenware you’ll get a variety of themed cooking classes by a knowledgeable and innovative team of chefs.

I highly recommend experiencing Park Place Luxury Condominiums located in prestigious West Sedona. This active lifestyle community is near world class shopping, dining, cultural, golf and spa amenities with dramatic vistas and red rock panoramas from every window and balcony. Park Place combines sophisticated Old World design with elegant interior and exterior finishes. Standard amenities include Viking appliances, hardwood kitchen cabinets, granite countertops, Kohler plumbing fixtures, oversized patios and balconies and so much more! We had the privilege of touring the property and the exquisitely designed models. Ben Miller and his sister Katherine Pullen pulled us back in time by sharing stories of their childhood upbringing on a ranch in Sedona just down the street. This family has teamed up along with several close, incredibly talented friends to bring to Sedona a dream environment that most of us would love to call “home”.

An exploration of any destination isn’t complete until you’ve had a little local wine coupled with a lot of creativity and that’s exactly what Jerome Winery and Imagine That Creations did. With a beautiful variety of over 3 handcrafted individually distinct wines, you are sure to find one (or more) you love! And if you want a unique reminder of that special wine, be sure to pair it with one of John Wayne Jacksons grape leaf castings made from the actual leaf of the wine itself! A perfect gift for yourself…or any wine/art lover!

All that we discovered on our glorious journey has truly enlightened us to the hidden treasures our State has to offer… AND… has just made us want to go back for more

Theatrical Experience

One of the most popular basement renovations these days is turning a portion of the space into a home theater. It gives homeowners the ability to utilize a room that is separate from the rest of the house enabling them to project sound and visual without disturbing what is going […]

Desert Rose

It’s not often I have the opportunity to write about a new home build that evolved simply from left over windows. Actually, I believe this is a first for me. Not only is this an amazing story on how this home came to fruition but the home itself is truly […]
