Uptown Sedona is the heart of Old Sedona. Here you get a taste of what Sedona was like in the earlier days. Located at the bottom of Oak Creek Canyon, this part of Sedona is very hilly and picturesque with incredible red rock views all around. Some of the oldest neighborhoods are located in Uptown, with a mixture of home styles anywhere from quaint cabins to the newer more modern styles of southwestern architecture. You will find some of Sedona's most upscale custom home areas here, such as Jordan Park Ridge, which offers some of the most spectacular Red Rock views and dramatic examples of the contemporary Southwestern architectural idiom. The Palisades off Brewer Road also has interesting custom homes of a variety of architectural styles on larger lots and hilly terrain which gives these properties very special views and privacy. Additionally, a number of smaller neighborhoods offer unique homes for a real flavor of 'Old Sedona'. This area also offers some of Sedona's rare Oak Creek frontage and irrigated properties.
