Introducing

Castle Rock and the Village of Oak Creek

Sedona Golf Resort from 205 E Big Horn Ct

There are many different looks for this Castle Rock formation that stand out like Bell Rock and Courthouse Butte in the middle of the sleepy Village of Oak Creek (VOC). 

 

When it comes to Village of Oak Creek real estate & Golf course view homes for sale, you only need to go to the Village of Oak Creek (VOC) to fulfill your dream. Homes are sprinkled around the 45 holes on two golf resorts and one executive golf course.  For those who enjoy this sport, there is a home for you either close to or on a golf course.  But for those who like the serene atmosphere and beauty of a home straddling one of the beautiful and well manicured fairways this may be right for you as well. Great golf courses in Sedona are a wonderful local attraction that bring people from a wide range of locations to enjoy this year round beauty.

A little history…

Sedona legend Helen Varner Vanderbilt Frye (1908-1979) who was married to TWA President Jack Frye built the House of Apache Fire now part of Red Rock State Park and another notable estate in VOC called “Sky fires” in what is now called Sedona Golf Resort. The house was destroyed in 1983 fire.

Circa 1910-1920s

The caption below this image from the Sedona Historical Society which operates the Sedona Heritage Museum reads, 

Myron "Budge" Loy Working Cattle 1910's-1920's.  The Samuel Loy family arrived in the Verde Valley in 1876.  ...(Myron) stated his occupation as "cowpuncher". 

Big Park

Big Park is the name given by the pioneers for the large open area of ranches in Yavapai County, Arizona. It was founded in the early 1800‘s and today is otherwise known as Village of Oak Creek or VOC. When it was formed, there were nothing but farms and ranches scattered about the area. But the area has slowly transformed over the last 50 years into a sleepy bedroom community of Sedona with golf resorts and 3 golf courses with the red rocks of Castle, Bell and Courthouse Butte as the background. It is about seven miles away from the main area of Sedona 86336, and has it's own post office designated Sedona 86351.

Sleepy Bedroom Community of Big Park/VOC

People who may find the 89A corridor of Sedona a little too busy for their tastes usually find they feel right at home in the Village of Oak Creek. VOC still retains that small town charm nestled in some of the most scenic and familiar red rock views that area has to offer. Bell Rock and Courthouse Butte stand out as you travel west on Hwy 179.

The real estate market in this area will average home prices around 23% less than Sedona 86336. However, the buyer will find homes in all price ranges including large luxury homes in "Millionaire's Row". This is located at the top of the Sedona Golf Resort on Crystal Sky Drive, with views out to the valley below.

For those who travel up to Flagstaff or down to the Phoenix area, living in the Village is a much closer commute to Interstate 17.

Good morning.  Sheri- - - your personal insight and local Sedona AZ real estate knowledge is so helpful.  Castle Rock and V.O.C. have much to offer and, as usual, the photography you share enhances your well-written and presented report.

Sheri, we have Castle Rock here too, but my photos are not nearly as beautiful!  You always provide such valuable information for anyone thinking of relocating to Sedona.

Hi Nina Hollander - There is a lot of local history and Bell Rock is a particular draw for hiking. You can actually hike to the top of it, if you are an experienced hiker.

Hi Joan Cox - Everyone asks to see homes with views.  They are a premium, especially those homes that are right underneath the formation like Castle Rock.

Hi Sally K. & David L. Hanson - Oak Creek Canyon is one of the top scenic drives in the USA.  I sold a home in that area that had stunning views.  The Village of Oak Creek is at the opposite end but Oak Creek flows that direction.
