My Artist's Cottage (and it's for sale!)

Taken from my front door

I live in one of the prettiest places in the United States...Oak Creek Canyon, which runs from Sedona up towards Flagstaff in Northern Arizona.  I bought a cottage in the canyon 34 years ago.  Now I'm ready to sell and return to New Zealand where I'll live 8 months of each year.  The other four will be spent in the U.S. resupplying my galleries and spending time with my grandkids. It is about 1200 s.f.  2 or 3 bedroom (I use the largest bedroom as a studio), 1.5 baths.  I am in a small neighborhood of 15 homes - almost all used as second homes.  No short-term rentals allowed - so the neighborhood is quiet and private.  We're surrounded by Forest Service land....ponderosa, oak, pinon and sycamore.  The house is about 100' from the creek and included legal deeded creek access. There are critters in the woods including white-tailed deer, black bear, raccoon, ring-tailed cat, etc.   If you're interested in more information on my house (the perfect second-home) let me know and I'll send you more information.


  1. OMG, Adele, it really is so beautiful!!! I am sorely tempted. Any horses/riding facilities nearby? It looks perfect for one person or a family get-away.

  2. No horse/riding facilities in the canyon itself but Flagstaff *30 minutes up the hill* is very horsey as is the Verde Valley, below Sedona. I forgot to mention the price is $349,000.

    It's the proverbial artist's cottage with apple trees, violets all over the back lawn, amazing views.....a gorgeous spot.

  3. Gorgeous!!! I have visited Sedona but this looks like Paradise!! I don't think you'll have a problem selling this one!!! Beautiful view!
