West Sedona offers a wide variety of neighborhoods and home styles, including modest starter homes and manufactured housing on up to large elegant homes. In West Sedona you will find some of Sedona's finest gated communities, and of course those famous spectacular Red Rock Views! This area contains most of the more usual businesses that you would find in any well appointed neighborhood including: banks, grocery stores, hardware stores, doctor's offices, NextCare Urgent Care, the Sedona Campus of the Verde Valley Medical Center, pharmacies, Red Rock High School, a middle school and several elementary schools, etc... The businesses are mostly clustered along the main route, West State Route 89A, with the neighborhoods dotted about the area further back from the main highway. You will also find many wonderful restaurants located along SR 89A throughout the West Sedona area.
One trait that especially characterizes the more upscale home communities is larger lots and a varied terrain that creates interest and allows builders to nestle the homes into the hillsides in such a way that they become a part of the landscape. These areas offer homeowners breathtaking views of West Sedona's most famous monuments such as Capitol Butte, Coffee Pot, Chimney Rock and the Cockscomb and include Foothills North, Foothills South, Distant Drums, Casa Contenta, Northern Shadows, Quail Run and the Estates at Northslopes.
