Talahogan is the Navajo expression for "house on hill." Given by its former owner (a Native American and family friend), the name honors the indigenous culture of northern Arizona. And in its straightforward way makes plainly clear what makes this property so extraordinary--the exceptional characteristics of its hilltop site! Located on the far west side of Sedona bordering the Coconino National Forest, the 2.5 acre property straddles both sides of a high and narrow hill overlooking much of Red Rock Country.
Sweeping 360 Panoramas
From this hilltop there are expansive, unobstructed vistas in virtually every direction. On the one side, the full sweep of the western and northern reaches of Red Rock Country in the national forest land--from the Wilderness Area to the 2000 ft uplift of the Mogollon Rim. From the other hillside, a stunning, seamless panorama of Sedona's entire eastern and southern horizons--from the commanding dome of Capitol Butte all the way around to iconic Cathedral, Bell and Courthouse Rocks on the far side of Red Rock Country.
Privacy and Tranquility
The hilltop offers not only spectacular views but also deep tranquility. The property, extending down both sides of the hill, is located along a dead-end improved dirt road in one of Sedona’s last havens of limited development. Miles from the high energy of Sedona's uptown commercial and tourist center, the hilltop and its environs provide an oasis of peacefulness in a country setting where wildlife abounds. And the acreage provides spacious privacy.
Harmony with nature
Much of the property is beautifully landscaped with winding paths, ponds, streams and large beds. From March into November, the garden delights with the colors and pungent fragrances of native vegetation and high country perennials. And in the background, the peaceful sound of running water. The colors, smells and life of the grounds provide a beautiful, natural, restful setting in which to savor deeply the magnificence of the surrounding red rock creation.
