Awesome views of Thunder Mountain, Sugarloaf Mountain, Chimney Butte, and of course, Coffee Pot Mtn. from the stunning interior and the perfect wraparound redwood deck. Luxuriate in the multi-jetted, NEW jacuzzi while you watch the sunset across vast mountain vistas after hiking one of 3 trail-heads a few minutes walk from the house. Relax in the hot tub and have Martinis on the deck: use the genuine mid-60's bar set! Grill in or choose from the great dining array, a few minutes walk or drive from home. Stay healthy with morning smoothies made with my Vita Mix blender and organic fruits from Whole Foods or Natural Grocers.
Chic MCM home, perfect location! The real Sedona 1960's character has been lovingly maintained and enhanced in the architecturally designed and Unique Mid Century Modern home on 500 Coffee Pot Drive. The furnishings, true to the later MCM period, down to the genuine watercolors, and gilded bar-ware, will transport you to the elegance of the period. Cork flooring throughout, and for your greater enjoyment, modern comforts include supremely comfortable bedding, new SS kitchen appliances and a recently remodeled sky lit bathroom.
500 Coffee Pot Drive is more than exquisitely stylish -- it is totally comfortable and as ecologically friendly as we could achieve. Most windows and doors have been replaced with ultra high quality thermopane patio doors, sliders and French doors, and operable screened windows. The owners are landscape specialists, committed to the healthiest environment we could provide. Pinon pines and Rocky Mountain junipers provide shade where needed on the deck and backyard patios. The multitude of birds will thrill you -- remember to fill the bird-feeder on the front deck, keep water in the fountain on the deck outside of the dining area, and use the field glasses we leave for you to view the orioles, bluejays, finches, ravens, cardinals, hawks, doves and more. Outside of each bedroom is a field-stone patio for your morning coffee. This patio steps down to another stone patio set up for cozy relaxation in the new patio chat set (love seat, chairs, cushions, table) and a Weber grill large enough for entertaining the new friends you will make in one of the most beautiful places on the planet!
New SS gas range, refrigerator and microwave complement the 60's modern kitchen; Also remodeled are the sky lit soaking tub/shower with porcelain vessel sink and 2 stage low water use toilet. Two master bedrooms: first with queen memory foam bed (Eco-friendly), desk, chairs and bookshelves, and a clothes closet the length of the room! The second bedroom has 2 twin beds (combine to make king), comfy reading area, and large closet. Should you desire, we can offer the guest studio which is separate from the house on its own lock and makes a sweet extra visitor getaway. New LG steam front loading washer and dryer, eco friendly laundry products, ironing board and iron -- what's not to love??
You will definitely appreciate the summer air conditioning or winter gas heat and gas fireplace. Cuddle on the new wide chaise lounge to watch Blu-Ray DVDs, 3D movies (six sets of glasses!), or your favorite programs (Direct TV with HBO) on the LG LED/LCD 47' HDTV. Yes, it tilts and rotates so it can be enjoyed by several seated on the mid-century leather like sofa and chairs. True to its mid-century architect-designed theme, the stacked stone gas fireplace is itself the central stunning feature of the great room and features a trough and river rock gas insert. Ask about the deck hot tub (New 2013).
500 Coffee Pot Drive is available for three nights to seven month rentals (it is our own getaway during several of the winter months). Please contact me, the owner, Marcia Caldwell with your request so that I can provide the rental fees for your stay. I have been managing my other Sedona vacation rental, 'Sedona cabin with awesome views; walk to Oak Creek' for some time and will always do my utmost to make your vacation memorably wonderful.
These are what make 500 Coffee Pot Drive so special:
Comfort: New gas pack on roof: efficient and less noise produced while providing maximum comfort whether winter heating or summer air conditioning. Ceiling fan circulates air and newer operable windows provide cool breezes in our beautiful spring and fall. The stacked stone gas fireplace creates warmth and ambience with an inspiring flame shot through ceramic rocks which appear as river rocks. And, the furniture includes an oversize chaise lounge for reading or TV viewing. Duette blinds insulate and provide privacy and sun protection, while the presence of large windows throughout the home brings in natural light and warmth when blinds are open.
Style: Architect designed (a protege of the famous Howard Madole) in 1965, this period piece Mid-Century Modern home has seen its character lovingly maintained by its owners, down to the furnishings. Modern stainless steel appliances (incl LG Washer/Dryer, top of the line) and remodeled bathroom, new plumbing and light fixtures and thermal pane windows and doors complement the style.
Professional housekeeping provides the utmost care and quality products and cleaning. The spa is also professionally maintained on a weekly basis, and windows and tree maintenance are professionally done at least twice annually. The owners are retired landscape architectural and contracting professionals so a healthy environment is foremost on their concerns.
No Toxins used! We are environmentalists, actively seeking out only botanical, biologically sensitive products which cannot harm people, insects or plants. We also replace furnace filters regularly.
Bedding: Queen bed in first master bedroom was custom ordered from the leading lowest toxin memory foam maker in the USA (San Francisco), Teri-Pedic. It has great support and profound comfort, and it has been off-gassed in a chamber -- you can't find a better mattress. The king bed in the second master is two twins with a channel filler and strap connecting them, so they are very comfortable for those wishing to have a king bed and can be divided to two twins for those whose sleeping needs require this. Newer pillow top high quality mattresses are a dream (literally). Sheets are 800 to 1600 t.c. and 'tropical' comforter is Tommy Bahama.
Bath: New tub is very wide, making soaking and showering great for adults and kids of all ages. Grab bar for safety, tile surround for easy clean and beauty, and skylight caps it off with natural light and celestial beauty. Towels are USA or India, high quality and some are extra long. Toilet is new low flush. Body care products are USA, natural and fine enough for very discriminating guests (and owners too).
Spa/jacuzzi: This multi-jet, adjustable nozzle spa will be the greatest source of relaxation, stress relief and pleasure any time of day or night. Extremely private yet with all the benefits of open air - dark sky ordinance of Sedona and typically cloudless nights makes certain that you will have a gorgeous celestial light show. Best of all, low chemical use eliminates chlorine smell and drying effect on skin, since it uses a blue light sanitizer, and it is professionally maintained every week. Large towels are provided, and even spa slippers are kept for guests' use. Sits six comfortably and has chaise, l.e.d. lights (optional) and subtle waterfall. Aaaah!
Views: Coffee Pot Rock is the 'star' since the street is named for it, and you will view it from the redwood deck, living and dining room, kitchen and bedroom. You will also be dazzled by sunsets which linger for half an hour over Thunder Mountain and behind Chimney Rock, or watching hot air balloons rise over the Secret Mountain Wilderness while sipping morning coffee.
Property: The backyard is mostly secluded and all flagstone with river rock edges. Vintage patio set with new cushions and umbrella table will invite you to enjoy that shish kebab and grilled veggies meal just prepared on the large Webber grill. You are on vacation -- have fun in this gorgeous setting under the native pinyon pines (probably 50 years old) and juniper/dense shrub surround. Stacked stone walls complement the architecture and set this house apart from your typical suburban setting.
Convenient location: I must mention the incredible location -- just minutes up the road from the Natural Grocer, Walgreen's, Basha's Supermarket (barbecues most weekends and great homestyle roasted anaheim and jalapeño peppers), four consignment shops and a thrift store, runner's shop, India Palace Rst., and a Subway. Then there's the entertainment -- Harkins Cinema 6 and Mary D. Fisher Theater, home of Sedona International Film Festival held late February annually. Plenty of night life options just a short drive in any direction. Catch the Lynx bus to uptown or to Cottonwood, or walk along enjoying Sedona's venues on its main road. Picazzo's Pizza and SedonaFit (highly recommended local gym) are walking distance downhill.
Trails: Uphill walk just a few minutes to the Teacup and Sugarloaf Mtn. trailheads for great exercise and views. Drive a mile or so further to Thunder Mountain and Chimney Rock trailhead.Visit the awesome Amithaba Stupa while on this trailhead and you may be transformed and even encounter Buddhist monks. Most of the fabulous trails from the Secret Mountain Wilderness to Devil's Bridge are only a five to fifteen minute drive. The guest brochure basket and bookshelf offer hiking and recreational options.
