Awaken to the sounds of the incredibly scenic Oak Creek outside your window. The water spilling over the rocks as it courses its way to meet the Verde River is wonderfully soothing and nourishing. The tall sycamores, cottonwoods and pine trees create a canopy of shade and shelter from the typically hot Arizona sun.
The riparian areas along the creek offer a gorgeous sanctuary for birds, fish and diverse animals that depend on the water and the woods for their existence. Silently watching the heron standing on one leg in the shallow creek as he waits for lunch to swim by is a special treat. Ducks swimming languidly in circles as the water tumbles over the rocks nearby is endlessly captivating. The view of the water is forever changing, depending on the weather; slow, cool and calming on warm summer days, rushing and exciting as the weather changes and the monsoon storms move in.
Homes with creek frontage are especially desirable. Decks or patios built above the water take advantage of the ever-changing scenery, allowing owners and guests a respite from the demands of the day. If this sounds like it’s the perfect setting for you, then a creek-front home along beautiful Oak Creek is the ideal location for your next luxury residence.

Luxury kitchens in Sedona come in all shapes and sizes. What differentiates a luxury kitchen from a standard kitchen are specific upgrades: appliances, floor coverings, countertops, cabinetry, and lighting, to name a few. The appliances in a luxury kitchen will most likely be Viking, Thermador, LG, Samsung, Wolf and other top brands. Some other European brands are entering the market with a splash, including Gaggenau from Switzerland and Lacanche from France. These appliances are most likely going to be stainless steel or a beautiful colored enamel. The ovens and range tops will be 5+ burners with separate grilling areas, double ovens, and warming drawers. Refrigerators will be stand-alone, double-door, and in some cases a separate freezer and beverage center. Occasionally the appliances in a luxury kitchen are commercially graded. Sinks, prep sinks, and vegetable sinks are often stainless steel, copper or porcelain/enamel with designer hardware to match.
Countertops can be a variety of surfaces such as granite, slate, alabaster, and flooring is either imported wood, tile, or natural stone. Cabinetry is expected to be custom in most luxury homes, and current trends in wood are alder, maple, cherry and walnut; some metals are gaining in popularity such as copper and stainless steel. These cabinets will often have glass fronts, pull-out drawers, and soft-close mechanisms. Lighting in luxury kitchens is mostly separately designed by a lighting expert. This is done for task-specific purposes as in mood lighting and accent lighting. Some of the best luxury kitchens reflect the lifestyle and character of the owners and are specifically designed for personal use and entertaining. Sedona has many gorgeous state-of-the-art kitchens.

Oakcreek Country Club
The Premier of Sedona, Arizona Golf Courses is the Oakcreek Country Club designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr. and Robert Trent Jones Jr. In the usual Trent Jones manner, the fairways are classic tree lined doglegs with fairway bunkers strategically placed in the landing areas and greens which are all slightly elevated and surrounded with large swirling greenside bunkers. The golf course is "player friendly," allowing plenty of room for error but always with an opportunity to recover and get errant shots back into play.
