Finding Peace in Nature


Once named the most beautiful place in America by USA Weekend magazine, Sedona, Arizona is a must-see for any outdoor enthusiast. Whether you’re traversing a few of the hundreds of miles of hiking and biking trails, climbing the Red Rocks, or fishing in Oak Creek, you’re sure to find a sense of tranquility in the natural world around you. When Dorn Homes began planning Sedona Ranch it was with that feeling in mind, the feeling that you’re at home in the world around you. Every aspect of the home and community design process has focused on blurring the line between indoor and outdoor living.

If you explore our newly completed model at Sedona Ranch you’ll find that the courtyard of The Enchantment is designed as a central and communal space. The three-pane sliding glass doors and cantilevered cantina bar windows open the home’s Great Room to the outside and invite the fresh air in. Dorn Homes’ Organic Home promise has long recognized that bringing fresh air into a building is healthier for you, your loved ones, and even your pets than stale indoor air.

The three-pane sliding glass doors do more than just open your home to fresh air. They open your home to awe-inspiring views of Sedona’s signature Red Rocks. Dorn Homes carefully selected each home site to offer panoramic views of the rock formations and the high desert around you. Imagine waking up every morning to see the most beautiful views that this country has to offer.

If you’re more interested in taking nature on than taking it in, Sedona Ranch offers a range of outdoor recreational activities. Picture yourself waking up before dawn, grabbing your fishing rod and reel and taking a few steps into your backyard to fish from the community’s trout pond. Once the sun rises, set aside your tackle and take a hike alongside Oak Creek on one of the community’s private hiking trails. Our fitness-minded homebuyers will find everything they’re looking for in the social membership at Seven Canyons, which gives you access to their fitness center, swimming pool, and performance health program.

The community’s relationship with Seven Canyons means you can take advantage of their amenities, like the community clubhouse and restaurant without the hustle and bustle of living in a resort community. Instead, you can enjoy upscale dining at The Club Restaurant and Bar and then return home to your own private oasis.

Sedona is, undeniably, a special place. As we’ve previously written in the History of Dorn Homes, we build in places that are inspiring. Sedona has inspired us to plan our community and design our homes in a way that celebrates the signature aesthetic of Sedona and invites nature in. Rather than pave over the natural world around us, these homes are built to live hand in hand with it.
