The Enclave at Seven Canyons Sedona
Silver Award for Attached Townhomes Built for Sale
The Enclave townhomes are tucked into an intimate setting, mere steps from some of the prettiest holes of the Seven Canyons golf course. Designed for comfort, the enclave offers 24 two-story luxury townhomes that blend elegant simplicity with floor-to-ceiling views and open-concept living. Exceptional privacy and exclusivity create a welcome sanctuary with breathtaking views of the red rock vistas. The transitional architecture pairs Sedona’s traditional vernacular with the latest in modern conveniences. This project was designed in collaboration with Dorn Homes.
Azure Residence 1, Paradise Valley, AZ
Grand Prize Award for Detached Home 3,000 – 3,500 sq ft.
This Azure Residence demonstrates the beautiful application of a controlled palette of materials that creates a signature appearance from both the street and internal vistas. Each color palette is modified to the residence type allowing the elevations to boast a soft contemporary and traditional style.
The unique design of the entryway and landscaping of the residence are the features that create an indoor/outdoor luxury lifestyle. This is displayed in the floor to ceiling windows at the back of the house, presenting a view of sprawling backyard and the simultaneous enjoyment of the indoor and outdoor features of the home. The pool assumes the entirety of the backyard space, creating a beautiful water installation. Following the bend of the pool around the side of the house, the indoor/outdoor experience continues with a grand living space opening to the outdoor dining area.
Azure Residence 3, Paradise Valley, AZ
Grand Prize Award for Detached Home 4,000 – 4,500 sq ft.
A modern masterpiece, Residence 3 invites you in with a front entrance made for natural light to fill the front living space. Each living space has been thoughtfully designed to offer both intimate scale enjoyment of the home and host larger groups for entertainment where the inside opens up to the outdoor living experience. Natural light floods each space and is an integral part of the overall design ethos. The entertainment options are endless with the stunning outdoor design. The open-ended arrangement surrounding the pool allows for outdoor dining, lounging around the fire and enjoying a beverage at the outdoor bar. The interior features softer wood tones, complementing the inviting outdoor landscape.
