When you picture a home situated in the reddish-orange sands outside Sedona, what comes to mind? A flat-roofed stucco house, perhaps? Maybe a mid-century modern creation?

Set on a lot with plenty of pine trees, the three-bedroom house looks like your average ‘70s contemporary construction from the outside. Inside, however, the place explodes with rustic cabin-like charm, thanks to tongue-and-groove paneling on the walls and ceilings, exposed beams, clerestory windows, vaulted ceilings, one-of-a-kind stained glass, and a wood-burning fireplace. The shining hardwood floors, meanwhile, were reclaimed from an indoor basketball court.

The main living area — complete with a built-in bar — is all open concept, with stairs that lead to a lofted landing on the second floor. Up there, the primary bedroom has French doors that open to a balcony. Vintage appliances and a groovy pendant light fixture round out the kitchen, which leads to a screened-in porch that lets mountain breezes in. 

There’s more outdoor enjoyment to be had on the property’s multiple decks and patios. The yard also boasts a shed and a one-car garage. This almost 1,300-square-foot package is listed for $474,900 by Ashley Berardi with RE/MAX Fine Properties.
